Cautions: Many gilled mushrooms grow in large clumps-remember that hen-of-the-woods is a pore fungus.
This mushroom has no poisonous look-alikes, but there are some similar species of pore fungi that are tough and inedible. If what you have tastes leathery or otherwise unpleasant, you probably didn't pick a hen-of-the-woods
