  1. What is the name for the mushroom that is called “Sheep’s Head”. My dad used to hunt these and are usually found at the base if oak trees. Would love to be able to find these on my own.

    • Sheep’s Head is also know as Hen of the Woods is Grifola frondosa. You can typically find them at the base of oak trees in September and October as well as a few earlier or later. The reported incidence is about 1 in 100 trees.
