Cow Fields, woods, horse farms, in GA, Can't find anything
    #5716579 - 06/05/06 10:38 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I am a novice shroom hunter with determination. I have not yet found my first shroom. I have searched a couple cow fields where they graze, i have heard cow fields are the best is this true? I have searched horse farms with no luck and simple woods, i did find a couple mushrooms, they were very dark grayish on top and white on the stem i threw these back after i saw no bluing on the stem when i pinched it, how long do u have to wait before u see blue? So my main question is what do i have to do to find shrooms besides look harder? It had rained in the past three days, and most conditions are very good, weather, rain, temp. etc..
thanks all. Peace

mostly just be patient and enjoy the practice. first i would say try to find out what you should be looking for in your area....

look here for your state: http://www.shroomery.org/index.php/par/12182

then see what is in your area, and the conditions needed to suport those and go from there.

Read the faq or a book on mushrooms of the USA.

I just got back from a hunt in a rather promising cow field in GA and didn't find a thing...it's so frustrating.

Yeah, for the most part, it's just knowing when the right conditions are present. You'll come to know that time.
They blue right away. Take time to learn to identify what you are looking for.
It's early.

Hey man, just don't give up looking. Eventually you'll find some. I had like 10+ unsuccessful hunts before I found anything. But hey when you finally find some your going to feel really, really good! And trust me, that feeling is worth it.

I think Georgia is just too dry now, not to mention scorching--everyday last week was nearly record highs in my area. I've been going out to 3-4 fields after even the littlest rains for about the last 3 weeks or so and I've observed limited shroomage, none of it active. So really, you just need to wait for the longer soaking rains (not these pitiful little 10-15 minute storms of late) to come and for the infernal 95+ heat to cessate. When it does finally rain, your best bet for active summer finds in Georgia is the psilocybe cubensis>>>http://www.shroomwizard.com/GGreat.html, which can be found growing out of older (prolly 6-8 weeks old) cow patties in and especially around the edge (treeline) of many of Georgia's abounding cow pastures. The cubensis fruits with more consistensy and abundance once you get below about I-20, so if you're in Northern Georgia you'll definitely have to look harder. If you're looking in horse shit the main active you might find would be Panaeolus subbalteatus>>> http://www.impakt.net/~tyler/subbs/. Anyway, like others said, you really need to just bury yourself in the FAQ and other mines of info on this site, there's so much already here.

Yup syzgy couldnt of said it better.

Ive hunted 4 big feilds of mine, always active.

But nothing at all except.

I found 2 little cubensis shrooms the other day. I think they are the first GA finds posted on this shroomery, pretty much 100%

so here is a pic of the first ga find.



besides these 2 shroomies... its sucky this year

thanks everyone for the info. I searched a horse farm today with no luck, i'm gonna wait till it rains. Hope the mushrooms will start popping up soon.

wow, thanks for the great info in this thread... i went hunting north of i-20 on sunday night for the first time w/ no luck, but i'm not discouraged... i really need a bicycle (haha, it's hard to find good, hidden parking when driving a car around looking for pastures... so i haven't tried those locations yet... but will figure something out next time we have a good rain...)

seriously, very good info in this thread... i love the "favorites" option

And conversely, just because it doesn't bruise blue, does not mean it is NOT active.  Such is the case with Panaeolus subbalteatus- blueing is rarely evident with this species.

Furthermore, if you find hunting stressful and get bummed out not finding actives, then try growing.  :smile:

On another note, bruising in woodland psilocybe (P. weilii as well as other unidentified GA psilocybe spp.) is very slow. Can take up to 20 minutes, depending on the specimens' condition and species.
Also, I wouldn't describe P. cubensis bluing as "right away," but is is fairly quick. As a general rule of thumb:
by the time you have left the field and are going over the day's haul, all of your mushrooms should have turned blue.
