My friend sent me these hops from Oregon that he picked wild. Anyone know what kind they are?

Look at the bottom of the page, I'm no expert so I cant say. Have you tried tasting a little of one? Great find, free is good.

There are no wild hops native to Oregon, so they are probably feral. Most likely Fuggles, Brewer's Gold or Cluster. That cone shape is too common to narrow it down further.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
