    Looks like a sulfur shelf mushroom to me but i am always an advocate of personally checking a few books and descriptions before I start eating new to me fungus.

    The guy who literally wrote the book on Ohio fungus in the 60s made a mistake once - barely lived.

    Agreed. I'm not a fan of mushrooms of any kind to begin with, even store bought ones, so I have no plans on eating any. They looked unusual to me so I'm more curious than anything.

    Chicken of the woods-sulfur shelf....looks like dead oak log it is on. Looks very normal to me. Not my opportunity so it is up to you.
