    Beatnik I went back out to check the tree it was a white oak. I downloaded a better picture of the tree and a closer picture of the mushroom, it is the size of a softball. The petals just seem too small to be a black staining polypore, but it does look black where a fungus or something is attacking it. Also trahn I was doing some research on what I said looked like what you had. I don't think they are the same, my mistake. IMG_3736.JPG IMG_3735.JPG

    Beagle, you're right, that is a white oak.

    I found this black staining polypore today, it doesn't look the same as what I found on Tuesday. IMG_3738.JPG IMG_3737.JPG I also found a chicken that was too far gone.

    Man i thought Chants were done. I live on 3 acres of woods and went for a walk a few minutes ago to see if there was any hens around the oak trees. To my surprise the ground is just completely covered with fresh Chants. First thing tomorrow i am picking. There has to be at least 3 grocery bags worth if not more. No bugs or browning. They just exploded from this rain and humidity. We have gotten 9 inches since Friday. Happy hunting

    We picked chants in September years ago in Clarion County...good for you!

    SW Pittsburgh got 8+ inches of rain, but I've yet to see any mushrooms of any type anywhere, even in people's yards.

    I hiked for 5 hours today looking for hen of the woods today, and didn't find any. I think I might have taken another one off my bucket list though. I think this is a lobster mushroom. I found it under several white pine trees on an oak hillside, in Centre co. Sorry about that second picture. It was of the underside but it got blurry. IMG_3745.JPG IMG_3746.JPG

    These are some of the other mushrooms I found today. The chanterelle is the biggest I have ever found. It measured almost 9" high and 5" across. I broke the bottom off when I removed it. It was too old. IMG_3741.JPG IMG_3742.JPG IMG_3744.JPG IMG_3740.JPG IMG_3739.JPG

    My wife and went to an orchard in Mifflin co. to get apples this morning. We found these on a tree along the township road. The oysters and the chicken were on the same tree. IMG_3748.JPG IMG_3749.JPG

    She wasn't tall enough so I had to call my nephew to bring a ladder, lol. That tree was covered in ivy poison, I don't react to it but my wife does.
