Anybody else getting hyped for monster hunter generations? We sure are! Just picked up the game and have been hunting all day and made ourselves some sweet cookie items to snack on while we work! HR 3 we are gonna hit you today!
Inedible. An uncommon sight (in my experience), stumbled upon by happenstance whilst pursuing morels.
The weeping polypore is a parasitic saprobic fungus. The spores enter the wounds of the host tree (typically oak; this specimen was discovered on a long-lived maple) and manifest their unwholesome appetite on the trunk of the tree, closest to the earth.
I didn’t deign to smell the amber ooze. I’ve read that this fungus has an unpleasant odor that shall remain enchained in the realm of my imagination – for now.
