I know some here pick wild mushrooms and enjoy them on the table each year. I've always wanted to learn how to accurately identify the safe ones from the poisonous ones. For those of you who are maybe seasoned at picking wild mushrooms, can you tell me where you got your knowledge from? Books or pocket guides you favor, etc.

Thanks! :)

Thanks Trapper. What part of WI are you from? I grew up there and still have family there?

The Ontario government has an excellent mushroom book, it's like an encyclopedia identifying the mushrooms and which can be eaten. I suspect there are some written up by a university of state agency down your way. There is also Peterson's Field Guide. But, don't go it alone, learn from an expert and use the book as a companion.

This are for Ontario and eastern Canada and New England. It's listed on Amazon as well.  I have an older copy that my brother laid claim to. :D :D
Move'n on.
