Yeah, I ended up not eating it since I couldnt ID it for sure. It has all the traits of a morel but the really big size threw me off. Thanks for the help everyone! you all are great!

Despite the potential ID, be very very careful before you cook it up and eat it. False morels are no fun at all. I truly doubt that this is a stinkhorn, though.

Morels come pretty big some times! I suspect this to be a yellow morel. Lucky you!

then you probably have a morel. See this site to compare it to false morel. http://thegreatmorel.com/falsemorel.html...
