Gettin my head on straight before the FSU game in Nashville 2 weeks ago.
JohnH0802, there is a species called a "false motel" that is mildly poisonous. I have never heard of someone ever finding one. I wouldn't even know how to identify them, and I've been foraging for them for years. If you want to start, you should get a good mushroom book. I own several mushroom books and all of them list possible similar species that are poisonous. Most of the ones in my pictures have no known similar poisonous species. It would also greatly benefit to tag along with someone who has some experience. UT offers some 1 day classes about foraging that are usually on a Saturday. It might offer you a chance to slip back into ETN for a weekend.
