    Greetings folks! I’ve been hunting morels for close to 12 years now, and that’s all I’ve hunted and done pretty well I think (depending on year). I only do it for myself, you’ll never catch me sell my catch. I’ve never really thought twice about what other mushrooms are edible and safe until recently watching a TV show and they showed Chicken of the woods/hen of the woods. I know I’ve seen piles on our family farm over the years. Does anyone have a good guide for dummies like me about what mushrooms grow in MN (southeast to be exact) and which ones are edible? Plan on doing a lot of searching this summer and would rather not pick what doesn’t need picking.

    Thanks all in advance!

    One of my personal favorite books is the national Audubon society field guide to North American mushrooms
