Anyone tried growing oyster mushrooms with a mushroom log kit?

It's dead of winter I know but I'm thinking of spring & things I can grow in my little backyard. So I was turned on to the idea growing mushrooms on a log with one of those kits which provide the spores. Has anyone tried this? Does it end up gourmet for the raccoons? I have a screened firepit I could put the logs in to protect from critters but raccoons are wiley. Anyway, is the taste worth it?
