I’ve not seen elk or bear eat shrooms, but I’m not out there 24×7 watching. I have seen mule deer eat them, but usually just a single bite, as if testing to see which ones might make them invisible. I worry about squirrels that spend so much time hauling shrooms to their nest each fall, since fungi are said to have zero nutritional values, calories, etc. Maybe they make good bedding. In the old days, I found some that actually made me larger, best I can remember. 😛
