I went back and found an example that was mostly eaten off. I broke it open.

Recognized by sight: Without a photo of the gills, it’s impossible to be certain. But these are out now. There are no Lycoperdon of this color in Oregon that I am aware of.

Yeah there’s not much to go on here, but the shape (peg-shaped/nail-shaped/“like a walking stick”), orange color, and especially the matted-felted cap surface look good for C. tomentosus (along with apparent growth on ground with conifers).

DOES THAT MEAN CUTTING THEM IN HALF?
They are on the edge of my yard, in the surrounding forest, as are half of my shots.
I can retrieve one, and dissect it.
I just found a new path, and I may as well keep an eye on them.

you can make a cross section…
but, it is likely impossible to tell for certain what these are at this stage of maturity w/ just that one photo…

i really do not think they are Lycoperdon though…
