I hiked through the woods for three hours this morning (I was carrying a Franchi 48 AL 20ga. but didn't flush a single grouse so I'm calling it a hike).

This big fungus (a pair of them, actually) caught my eye even though it was growing under the roots of a partly-tipped-over tree. It was almost the size of a soccer ball.

Any ideas on what it might be? Pretty wild looking...

I was thinking it might be Hen of the Woods, but it looks more like a Black Staining Polyphore. And it was growing on oak roots, which is further evidence. BUT... the BSP is more of a summer fungus. Hen of the Woods is more likely found in late September. Curious...
