"I agree w/ Jan . looks like a "puffball" to me. . Keep an eye on it .. if it is .. it will grow significantly in size & be spongy later in life .. puffing out its insides (spores) if squeezed to the point of bursting."

Strange (to me) mushroom

I was riding my 4 wheeler through the woods the other day and saw this mushroom.  I don't recall ever seeing one like it before.  The pine cone lying beside it is about 3 inches long.  The mushroom was about 7 or 8  inches tall and the head is about 2 1/2 inches wide.  Does anybody know what kind it is?See More

Thanks, Charles.

You might want to read a short piece I wrote about how a Case knife saved my bacon while I was deer hunting.

What does that mean?  Well let us examine it and see.  It is a fairly simple and short statement.  It has two clauses or sections.  The second states that a particular right of…

I did buy knives at SMKW.

This one is a Rough Rider Mushroom knife RR1400.  (The nation is now safe.  If that mushroom that came up in my yard was just a scout for a full scale invasion, I now have the means to beat it back!)

My visit to SMKW wouldn't have been complete without meeting the Knives Live guys.

Here is Josh and me in the Knives Live studio.  (It's a little bigger than a two holer.  I believe you could fit a three holer in it!)

 

And here is Jay.  (Like his T shirt!)…
