Chicken of the Woods
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.
(Lycoperdon perlatum) and others
There are many species of puffballs, most of which are edible. They can be found growing out of dead wood, like these Gem-studded puffballs, or directly on the ground in the woods or in grass. Edible varieties exhibit undifferentiated white flesh when sliced in half. Avoid specimens that have a dark or yellow interior.
