Sure looks like it. http://mushroom-collecting.com/mushroomchickens.html

But I've only ever gone after Morel's.

That's what it is,it may grow in the same place next year if it dropped spore on the tree or ground I would clean it cut it up & saute it in butter,fry it with deer steaks or fry it with scramble eggs like I do with my morels.

Re: is this what i think it is, checken of the woods?

It looks sort of old. I've heard they are best eaten when young. I cut a young one up last year and sauteed it in butter. It didn't taste very good at all. My brother tried one that was prepared by his friend (breaded) and he said it was the best mushroom that he had ever tasted. My brother later cooked one himself and it was terrible. I wonder if there is a trick to cooking them or maybe you should only eat certain parts of it.

I goot say, I come across Chicken-O-Woods all the time when I'm looking for Sheephead. I let them stay right where they are. They just aren't a very good eating muchroom in my opinion. Then again, there are people that don't like Morel's.
