  1. Found this on 9/27/18 In NEPA. THIS IS A GREAT MONSTER HEN AND HAS 2 others with it. It grows big every year.
  2. Not sure if it’s white because of the beech. But yes that a beech I do well with beech trees here in NEPA.
  3. Found this 7 pound Sheep Head (Hen of the woods) last night. It was in a hallowed out beech tree and must not have seen daylight? Never had one this white. Anyone else seen this?
  4. Wow great info Dave W! I learn something new every time I read one of your posts! I will be out picking these tomorrow for the freezer.. Didn't have time when I first found them. I will look closer at the veil.
  5. Hi folks I have been wondering if there is such a thing as stumpy's? "A fatter variety of A. Gallica/ A. Mellea that does not open up" in my area it is believed that these Mushrooms I am showing below are different from your average honey mushroom A Gallica or Mellea. They are called stumpy's (In my area) and people say they are a different kind from the honey mushrooms that open up with the flat cap. I'm wondering if this is true or if it's just a young stage of the honey mushroom or just the first fruiting and they actually are not going to get caps? It would be nicel to get some information from experts as a lot of people in my area just go by what they were told by their grandparents. I believe these to be Armillaria Gallica. So basically people believe these are a different type of honey mushroom in my area. Honey mushroom are also widely know as Popinkys here in NEPA. We have a lot of Polish influence and many many people have hunted mushrooms for generations here. People also say these get much fatter and are better for cooking.. There is a pic also of what I believe is an aborted entoloma. Pic taken Sept 10th 2017 NEPA Clarks Summit area
  6. WOW GREAT INFO THANKS FOR ALL THE TIPS! I WILL HAVE MY WIFE TRY THEM! HA I also found some nice Honey Mushrooms
  7. Hi any help with ID would be appreciated! Found these under conifer trees in my yard. Doing a spore print as I type this.. It was dry when I picked them so it was not slimy. Found on Sept 4th 2017 North East PA Thanks!
  8. I understand about the mass amounts! I'm just picking for learning right now. I'll have plenty of time to enjoy a meal once I learn more about these and other look alikes. I just love being in the woods. Thanks Dave
  9. Thanks you so much Dave great info! Been reading up lots on these. Very interesting stuff!
  10. Nice some didn't have a ring on the stem.. but were on same cluster.. All other characteristics were there though.. Doing a spore print and seeing white!
  11. October 1, 2016 Northeast Pennsylvania these mushrooms are ubiquitous allover deadwood stumps and Dead branches. We had three days of rain, so these mushrooms were wet when I picked them, they didn't have very pronounced prickly tops although the ones under logs that remained dry did. My friend who normally picks these is used to finding them much more yellow. Everything I see online and in my field books says yellow to brown. I have also seen a bunch of people on YouTube with this coloration of honey mushroom. Doing a spore print now, and would like any input. Thank you very much! Also found a couple sheep heads and chickens!

  13. Thanks Guys! It was a great dish! And I did a print on black it was a white print. I'll try the white paper next time!
  14. I have a job that allows me to be in lots of peoples yards all day long. I'm always on the lookout for mushrooms when I can. Today I was able to find 4 sheeps! The small one is kind of questionable? I was in a hurry so just shot a quick pic and moved on. I didn't pick any. The one with the brown top on it was a first for me. Any idea what that dark color means? If anything?
  15. These Oysters are actually rowing on and Elm tree stump. Just picked today in NEPA. Just wondering if anybody can narrow down what specific oyster it may be.. Making a spore print tonight. Thanks!
