Since I am new to morel hunting, I would like to know if there is any danger in harvesting a mushroom which I think is a morel, but isn’t.

The Morel mushroom has a poisonous look alike, called the false morel or gyromitra esculenta, easily identifiable when comparing to the Morel. As with any mushroom picked from the wild, unless identified as an edible, you may want to refrain from eating it.
