    Hello, Newb From WI

    Glad you decided to join us 🙂 Sorry to hear about the stress of loosing your keys in that situation. I'm just glad they were easy to find! You're not alone in having something like that happen. I'm only in my 30s and I've had similar experiences.

    White Tails Love Amanita muscaria!

    I speculated that squirrels were eating them. Usually the mess I find is what I imagine a squirrel leaving behind 🤣 @Tasso, thanks for sharing that video URL... that is some crazy stuff. Drinking deer urine... the extent some people would go to. 🤯

    Is this Amanita Muscaria?

    I've never really seen them when they get really old.... its possible they are the same but I don't know. Certainly very cool looking when they're white! I'm hoping someone smarter chimes in here. Wondering if @Dave W might have some knowledge about this. :-D
  5. Thought you guys would like this. In the first photo there are a ton of Amanita muscaria littering my friend's yard. He said that this deer went and cleaned them all out of his yard. After finding these in the woods many times, and noticing crumbs around, I finally know who's been eating them all!

    Is this Amanita Muscaria?

    It is indeed! Those are the kind I see in northern Minnesota. They are Amanita muscaria var. formosa. I've only seen a red one once. They are a pretty cool mushroom to see in person, aren't they! Edit: after I posted this, I noticed the color of the stem... I may be wrong about which variant is pictured here. Usually, I've seen them with white stems... and I get these variants flipped. I think you got it with the var. Guessowi.

    Orange / Yellow Mushrooms from Georgia

    Fortunately, my friends know to never eat mushrooms unless they know exactly what they are. I think you nailed it @Dave W. Thank you :-)
  8. A friend of mine sent me these pics. I'm having trouble finding the usual online tools I've used in the past for IDing mushrooms. These were found in a suburb just south of Atlanta, Georgia. I don't think I've seen anything like these in northern Minnesota. Any ideas to get me started at least?

    Could it be chaga?

    As @troutddicted said, it should be a honey color on the inside. Its a slightly bright, fresh looking color, like this. Its hard to tell for sure from the photo but I lean toward this not being Chaga. If this is Chaga, I wouldn't ingest it.

    Tossing scraps out front is paying off!

    I've been throwing them out front for the past 5 years. This fall is the first I've seen any results. Of course, it's after we are about to sell the house. Looks like I'll have to sneak in here at night to harvest these in the future ;-)

    Illness from Maitake

    Thanks for posting this. A guy I know offered for me to take a few Hen of the Woods from his yard because he said he gets very sick when he eats them. I thought maybe he was mis-identifying Hen of The Woods so I never went over to his place for them. I've never heard of anyone getting sick from them. Since Hens are more dense than other mushrooms, I wonder if they may have been undercooked.... speculating. This is one mushroom that I can't seem to overcook. I like them to be slightly crispy.
  12. Whenever I clean mushrooms or have some that aren't good to eat anymore, I toss them in the front yard. The scraps of shaggy manes are finally showing results!

    Welcome to the forums! I hope you're starting to see some mushrooms popping up. You're probably a couple weeks ahead of me.
