First Mushroom Hunt. Look, and tell me if it=good!
    #1011358 - 10/31/02 10:22 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Well, I just went behind my backyard fence, and into the pretty thick woods. Withing minutes, I began to find Mushrooms. They were all pretty much the same, and I gather quite a bit. I need to know if they are hallucinogenic or not. I have provide a few pictures (I found half a ziploc baggie full, and these are just a few mushrooms), and here is some data:

a. Habitat (where and what does it grow on)--Was found mostly on the wet ground. Ground is mix of moist leaves, and dirt. It is in the woods. It had rained early this week.
b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc) The gills are white, and some are brown.
c. Measurements of cap and stem.--Small Mushrooms, size not measured.
d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc) --The color is white/light brown
e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, concical/spherical, convex/concave, etc) --The cap is white, with a light brown middle. They are pretty much flat. Some go inward a little in the middle.
f. Spore print color (very important!) --I will post later, in 1-2 hours.  :smile:
g. Color that the mushroom briuses--not known at this time
h. Scent of mushroom---mushroomy?

Aww...

Are they poisinous, or do you just not recognize them?

I am from North Texas.

Where are you from? In TN we can only find gyms in the woods. Do a search for gymnopilus spectablis and familiarize yourself with it. They love the cold weather and should be fruiting if you are on the east coast.

I second that those aren't active.

you need a hunting license, some camoflouge, and a weapon of some sort.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I think of going to the grave without having a psychedelic experience, like going to the grave without having sex. It means that you never figured out what it was all about. The mystery is in the body, and the way the body works itself into nature.

Woods isn't really the best place to hunt, Gyms takes terrible.


Pastures are where you need to look!  :smile:

texas is a big state, lots of diverse habitats, and micro climates .
you need to study what is preferred by the rooms you are looking for . that will give you an idea where to look . hint, you wont find any in the desert .
good luck . :wink:
