Need a better description. The thing you descibed may not even be a mushroom, it could be a leaf for all we know. Or it could be 1 of about 3,000(give or take a thousand) brown mushrooms. Try including gill color(things under the cap), stem length and size, if it has a veil, general size, and briusing reaction.
I saw an animal in the woods. It was brown & furry. What was it?
Seriously, if you have any real interest in hunting mushrooms, you need to learn how to observe & describe the identifying features. There are thousands of species; many look quite similar and can only be told apart by the fine details.
Get a good field guide or two, take some mycology classes, join a mycological society & go on their hikes. Learn something about mushrooms in general, then study up on the ones you want to find. Then you'll be able to post meaningful questions & maybe get some useful answers.
