    Beagle, have eaten them for years without a problem, I've read that in some books also. I try to pick them before the caps open up, they are less buggy and better texture IMOA. Just eat alittle at first, they have a good taste, Nice spore print. Congrats! Happy Hunting!

    How wide can ringed honeys get. I found a boat load of different honeys but some are over 5 inches wide.

    pc have seen them that size before, never really pick them after the caps open. Found some this year that where rather large.

    Two years back, we picked 78# of honeys in one small spot, and yes, MANY were 7-9" tall, with 5-6" caps. A good number were quite buggy, though.

    Great harvest trapper! I'm not a fan of the entalomas but those bears head tooth look great.

    Found a bunch of hens last weekend. Going back this weekend to hopefully get the smaller ones that I left. It's a public park and others have been cutting from the same trees though. Wish I could find a good spot like this that is more private. I've only found one at a time in my more secluded spots.

    Anyone know what this polypore might be?

    It was only a couple feet in front of a giant oak with hens on the other side of it. It was bigger and heavier than it looks in the pics, at least a foot wide if not more and dense.

    Found a bonanza tree today had both hens and chants. The hen was only a little bigger than my hand but I had to harvest it anyway. The property owner said I could hunt mushrooms there until bow season started. Tomorrow is bow season. IMG_3765.JPG IMG_3764.JPG

    Found this crazy alien egg yesterday while collecting hens, chickens, bear's tooth, lilac boletes, black trumpets, mini puffballs and various other boletes. I thought it was a puffball until I cut it for dinner and got THIS!

    This morning I figured out what it is, but thought I'd give everyone here the option of guessing :p image1.jpeg

    Netted Stinkhorn. There's actually a Youtube video of someone IDing this. I've eaten them in Chinese cooking, but I'd never seen one, or the egg, or anything in a book that ever looked like this...
