Looks like a shaggy parasol, hard to tell with mushrooms sometimes. Especially from pics

it also kind of looks like a amanita. My strategy works pretty well so far, If you don't KNOW it throw it

Hard to tell from the pics. Could be a puffball but it's very dark for what is normally almost white. No shaggy, I don't think. There are others it could be. Get a book and do a spore print as well as identifying location, time of year, etcetera.

Definitely not an amanita or puffball. I also think shaggy parasol is a reasonable guess, but it's strange that the cap is all white.

I would need more info to identify, could be a few poisonous mushrooms like the Chlorophyllum molybdites.
There are a few shaggy look alikes. They are one of the mushrooms you need to be experienced in looking for.

I have been finding lots of Chantrelles and Hedge Hogs here on the coast lately.

NO!

We rarely find true chicken of the woods in this state, they rely on OAK or other hardwoods. That is a type of sulphur shelf but known to cause terrible stomach issues.

The deer are exactly where you find them, and no where you dont!

Not true. I sell thousands of lbs of COW each year, all picked in WA and OR. I find them mainly on dead conifers but occasionally hardwoods.  Doug fir stumps and logs are the best. They don't make you sick unless you're eating old, dried out ones or overeating, which causes gastric distress.
