Cam from Survival Bros consumes raw mushrooms. They are edible when cooked! He was starving after a long hike in Arch Cape, OR. The Chicken of The Woods mushrooms are rare. They DO taste like chicken, and you can even sell them to restaurants. Plus, they can be frozen, and stored long term. Cameron took home about 8 pounds of chanterelles and this variety. Mushroom hunting is an awesome hobby, but there’s a steep learning curve. Get a book or two on the subject before picking and consuming.
