Also if you have some stumps on your own land you can always "seed" them with spore infused dowels.  Easy way to create a few years of harvest (sometimes more) and not worry about perhaps eating the wrong shroom.

That's what I would like to do, grow them myself. I have always wanted to learn about edible mushrooms, but nervous without a mycologist present, although I do feel comfortable finding info and identifying, I know mushrooms can be challenging.

Puffballs: Are these the ones that burst open as they get older and make a cloud when you step on them? I used to love those when I was a kid, still do (for the fun aspect, haven't eaten yet though). We have lots of these around. The only reason I haven't tried it is because I'm not positive about my ID. I might pull some and bring them into the county extension and ask for their help.

Yep, those are the ones.  Before they spore they're a solid & very firm fleshed mushroom.  They look almost like a golfball sitting on the ground, although the size can be either larger or smaller.  They're great for sauteing.
