Shroom boom: Mushroom pickers find big ones in UP

Some huge mushrooms are popping up in the UP! The most notable finding at present was by a resident of Quinnesec in the upper peninsula who found a volleyball sized puffball mushroom in Dickson county. According to him, there are a number of fairly large mushrooms growing in the UP and although the spring apparently gets a lot of buzz, he says that the fall is very plentiful as well. In addition to puffballs, he also finds field mushrooms up north as well.

At the bottom of the article is also a cautionary statement by MSU experts, asserting that one must be absolutely sure of the identity of the mushrooms picked before consuming it.
