They've been here in central pa for a little more than a month. If they're pale and stiffer it usually means bugs or old age or both. The young ones, 3 to 5 silver dollar sized bodies, are the choicest one in my opinion. I tend to find them more on western facing slopes. I have eaten sulfur shelf from pine and it is more sinewy or fibrous, didn't make me sick but why risk it in the future. Good hunting to all!
