Hello everyone. What might these be? I was thinking Chanterelles but it's my first hunt and want to be sure. They are not at the base of a hard wood but about 30 - 50 feet away from some large ones. This is almost on the stump of a dead yew. Very rubbery gills. They do not break off when rubbed. Found in a large round cluster.

Thank you in advance for all your help!

It looks like a ringless honey mushroom.  Armillaria tabescens.   Double check smell, spore color, stem characteristics, and everything else before eating them.   Honey mushrooms are really very good if you cook them long enough.

I'll check into that. They aren't chanterelles after further research they don't have false gills but they aren't the poisonous version either. So . . . Next researching the ringless  honey mushroom.
