After some research it looks like a Laetiporus variety of some kind to me. I'm not brave enough to eat it, but I do have my daughter and some grand kids convinced they'll be served breaded COTW strips next time they visit... Geez, "It tastes just like chicken!"

So, you fungi experts, what is it other than a Hooligan Shoot target?

That is a past its prime Chicken Of The Woods/Sulfur Shelf/Chicken Mushroom. I would pass on that one.
Personally, I stick with the ones that have vibrant yellow and orange colors. That is a good sign they just popped up. (Magnumst's post #66) The interesting thing about these is they go from non existent to 5+ pounds overnight. To say they grow fast is an understatement.

Found this big girl in the yard today and am not sure what it is. Thinking maybe Black Staining Polypore? Edible?

I love mushrooms, but I would never pick wild ones. With my luck, I would end up with psilocybin shrooms or worse.

Hah! I see videos of kids after tooth extractions and the kids are out of their minds...on laughing gas I believe. I can't imagine what a person would think was going on if they ate some of the trippy mushrooms by mistake especially if they are non drinkers and innocent to other mind altering substances.

Here's one that popped up under one of our pine trees in less than 24 hours. Pretty, but poisonous for humans. Interestingly: I've come out at night and seen half a dozen crickets munching away on these.

As kind of a side story; I always considered "shroom" to be the druggy term for Psilocybin mushroom. One night we were all at a restaurant and the assistant waiter (sort of a bus boy) brought up a plate and asked "who had the shrooms?" and I almost spat out my beer.
