as I handled them quite a bit in trying to clean off dirt.
They were lighter in color when I first spotted them.
If so, very likely R. rubescens. Huge (over 1 pound) specimens have been found in southern Oregon associated with both Pinus and Quercus.
In my experience, R. rubescens is usually at least somewhat reddish when found, but quickly bruises deeper red when bruises or even handled.
