    The first couple of photos look a little like Hen of the Woods, but I'm no fungii expert and the consequences of mis-identifying a mushroom can be fatal. I wouldn't recommend eating anything unless you can absolutely 100% identify it as edible/safe.

    Don't eat any of them.

    At work getting my butt kicked 2 days before dove season is beginning of madhouse here at the gun shop.
    Will go into detail later.

    Don't eat.

    In the first 4 pictures, the last one (or I assume the one in the upper right-hand corner of the first pic is the same specimen) is most likely chicken of the woods. Cut it open, if it is kind of pink on the inside, and smells kind of sweet, then it's good to go. All the others in the first four pics, are not the same fungi even though they share visual characteristics. But they will not kill you either.

    The 5th picture kinda looks like a big oyster mushroom, but would need better (clearer and closer and stem and underside) pics to say for sure. There are shrooms that look similar that ARE deadly.

    The stem of those type oysters will be furry looking, almost like carpet, kind of fine shaggy. Really need better pics of that one. But, even if it is an oyster, it's really too big too enjoy at that size. It would be right tough.

    Thanks Bill, they're not going to kill me anyway.
