Hey everybody.

I found this HUGE HUGE mushroom on my forest property. It weighs 3Lbs!!! 12 inches tall, and about 11 inches across the top of the cap. About an 8 inch stem with a 4 inch diameter.

Flesh is very thick. Gills are spaced sort of close together, but not too close.

The cap is orange brown colors.
