    If I ate Any mushroom I found, I would probably be dead in 30 minutes.
    I see the photos y'all post, but I would have to have a knowledgeable person help me pick them before I try them.
    I wish I had better outdoor skills in relation to food stuffs.

    I picked some last month from a log that produced last year. Also, earlier this week I saw a good size chicken of the woods growing on my neighbor's stump. I need to ask her if she would mind if I picked that one.

    I'm gonna have to try these. I usually stick to morels when it comes to fungus, but these seem pretty identifiable.

    There ain't but probably 2 shrooms in KY that look good enough to pick that could possibly kill a person. One is an amanita, the Destroying Angle, the other is the jackolantern mushroom, Omphalotus illudens.

    I love mushrooms but I'm not willing to test one from the wild. I looked up both of those names and the pictures for them vary so much there's no way I'd be able to positively identify.

    There are as many field guides to mushrooms as there are mushrooms.
