Re: do i find sheepsheads
Maples maybe, pines definetely not, oaks and oak stumps yes. Sounds like you need to get a couple books. The two that i carry are (Simon and Schuster's Guide to Mushrooms by Gary Lincoff) and (David Fischer's Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America). Even if you go with someone i would still carry a couple of these book while in the field. I carry them, and i've been picking mushrooms for 30 years. In just the last couple years i've added probably a dozen more edibles. bears tooth, shaggy mane just a couple that come to mind. The books will go into detail and give you a pretty good start. just remem ber if your not, and i mean not %110 sure, don't eat it. I still to this day even after picking stumpies a long time, there are a lot of look alikes that will have me scratching my head.
