Cool thread.

Its probably been mentioned on earlier pages, but I keep "All the Rain Promises and More" in my pack at all times.

I've become a better mushroom hunter than big game hunter over the past few years and had some delicious mushroom snacks.

Its nothing you can eat.

Making spore prints is so simple you'll wonder why you never did it. Once you know the color of the spores, your job is vastly easier using books to narrow down which species you've got.

Unless I know a mushroom inside and out, I write a paragraph each time in which I discuss toxic look-a-likes (easily google-able) and why I know that the specimen I'm about to eat is not one of those. I also follow other protocols such as eating a small amount and waiting, etc. 

Mushrooms are highly variable and even something as seemingly obvious as a chanterelle can be closely approximated by individuals of other species that I wouldn't want to ingest.

Is it weird that mushroom hunting kinda scares me? Don't get me wrong. I love shrooms. But there are so many different poisonous varieties that are sneakily close to edible ones. Is there a mycologist group that I can contact if I ever do collect that can help me identify?

The secret is to get a good field guide AND to pick with someone experienced.

Don't go stuffing your face with even an edible mushroom as some people have a adverse reaction while the next won't. moderation at first. :twocents:
