These superb edibles can be found growing at or near the base of both living and dead deciduous trees, most commonly oak. They have a white underside, free from gills, and the tops are usually tan to dark brown. A very meaty mushroom, they can grow very large...it's common to find specimens that are several pounds each!
Chicken of the Woods
(Laetiporus sulphureus and others)
Due to its unique look, this mushroom is very easy to spot and identify. It can be found growing on downed deciduous and coniferous logs and stumps. Its bright orange top, bright yellow edges and underside, and complete lack of gills make this a great mushroom for novice hunters. The flesh is firm and meaty, and can be treated like chicken.
