In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

LoL  Yea I don't think I would ever eat one unless it's one of the obvious ones...Puffball, Chicken of the Woods, Morel or Shaggy Mane.

But it's still kinda fun hunting and trying to identify them...or is it just me? :-\

I like to spend my time "hunting" getting something with a little more protein in it, such as squirrels or deer. O0

Until I got to really know you KY folks better, I thought all you chased were possums, skunks, and coon because they always showed you folks on TV wearing skunk, possum, anf coon caps.  :wink: ;D  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

One of my brothers hunts all kinds of edible mushrooms and has books on them. Me, I plan on living a lot longer. And that plan excludeds suspicious looking mushrooms in my diet.  :)

I went out today searching for someplace to do some hunting this fall and came across a really cool fungus, which at the time I didn't know what it was.



I identified it when I got home and found out that it's Ganoderma Applanatum or more commonly known as an "Artist's Bracket."
It is aptly named so because the white underside can be etched away to create brown lines and shading:



There were probably about 50 of these things growing all over, all about the same size (9" diameter) so I'm considering going back and grabbing a few of them and doing some sketches. 8)

I also found a few baby Puffballs but didn't harvest them in hopes that they might grow big and mighty soon. :)



I found a Little Critter Skull too but I'm not really sure what it was...a baby beaver perhaps?  Interestingly, there was a Red Tailed Hawk feather on the ground just beside it so I think that might have had something to do with it's demise. O0

Skull doesn't look like a beaver.  It's too small.  Maybe either a squirrel or a muskrat.  Was there any water around where the skull was?
