What is it and is it poisonous

Checking around for archery stands and came across this orange mushroom type thing. Anything bright in color is usually natures way of telling stuff to stay away from it.

Can't really tell from the pic, but it looks like it may be a jack-o-lantern, in which case it will make you sick. On the other hand, chanterelles and sulfur shelf(chicken mushrooms) are also bright orange, and are excellent table fare.

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

That looks like jack o'lantern to me, but I'm no expert by any means.

If your dreams don't scare you, they're not big enough.

I'm almost positive that's a Jack. They grow off old stumps and old root systems, but always off some knid of wood.
