Not arguing about it, but i have seen chicken of the woods very cream color.
True, there is a species of chicken that is very pale in color. However, it is a polypore and not a toothed fungus. I've found 2 species of chicken here in NE Ohio, Laetiporous sulfureus, and Laetiporous cincinnatus. I don't know if the cream colored version grows here. I've also found northern tooth several times.

Well, It wasn’t a huge haul, but we found plenty of keepers. You can definitely tell its been dry until recently. You gotta wonder if the drought last year did a lot of damage to different spots, dry out mycelium colonies and such… View attachment 44254
we have had plenty of rain in Douglas county. The lobster's, chant's and hogs are like normal, but the boletus are not. Watching these guys like a hawk.

Just starting to find black trumpets at my spots, still too small to pick.

Mason, those look delicious. Looking closely for boletus in spots that produced in past years, but no luck so far. I have had no luck the last two years, keep trying to be optimistic tho!
Same thing here. Last year was too dry, i was hoping to nail them this year, but other than a few leather backs and some old man, the scabbers, and boletus have been quiet.

Can anyone help identify? Looks like a Matsutake. View attachment 44309
Pearl studded puffball. They are fall bearing. If you can find them on extremely rotted logs they are cleaner. If you pick them you maybe have an hour to get them in the frying pan. Cut them open, if they are white they are good, if yellow or brown not good. They are puff balls, they soak up everything like a sponge. And fairly flavorless.
