boletes?

Okay, find these boletes in my deer hunting spots around pines. Not sure if they are edible or not, but if so there's usually a bunch of them. I'll be paying better attention this fall and checking for bruising color. Anyone wanna take a stab at it without much more info?

Bump...nobody has a guess? I'll be investigating them further when they show up. Can't do much until then, but I'd be interested in hearing some opinions...

Re: boletes?

Thanks Jack! Anyone consider them worth their time? I've read mixed reviews in my research. Of course I will be doing spore prints etc. to confirm. They're quite abundant when they show up. Sounds like some like em, some consider them bland and not worth the effort to peel the sticky cap...Do you eat them Jack?

I haven't eaten them but I've eaten the young, hard buttons of Suillus granulatus. I'm not a big fan of Boletes, except for B. Edulis and a few others.

Re: boletes?

Does the cap feel all "slippery" and slimy? They look like SLIPPERY JACKS to me. If so, I've eaten them for years. I generally peel the skin off at the kitchen sink and fry them in butter.... very good. They do get wormy if left in the field to long. Hope this helps, Trapperbill

Ok, they're back! So I picked some nice young specimens today, they tend to get buggy fast...

Re: boletes?

Siullus brevipes, or perhaps suillus granulatus? Just started a spore print, these certainly do not have a ring or veil of any sort, which rules out the slippery jacks correct? They are definitely slippery/slimy though. My research doesn't produce any look alikes that are toxic, but confirmation from you guys always helps to ease my mind...
