you gotta do the research yourself man, there's no way around it. most mushrooms are non active. find out what active mushrooms grow in your area and research those specifically. search for the right environments. when you think you've found something good, take pictures and a spore print and make an ID request on here. someone will be happy to help.
but as far as someone bringing you around town teaching you, it's probably not gonna happen. lots of noobs come here asking for this. all the info you need to know is right on this site. research buddy. if you're not ready to do your own research and have tons of patience while searching then you might want to consider a different hobby.
here's a list of the active species that grow in each state. start out by studying the most commonly found shrooms on the list and then search for the right habitats.
Hey MMM I understand your question and desire to get results. I have been out searching like hell and have only found non actives. I studied the pictures of habitats that people post and try to find that out in the field. I look to see what kind of leaves are in the pick and if there are berry bushes or wood mulch or chips. Also you have to figure that there are others out there who know what they are doing so you are competing with them as well as a huge learning curve. The more I go out the more I learn about the different habitat in my area and places to look. Today I went out and searched through alder stands with cedars and tons of blackberry bushes and maples; lifting up vines sifting through grass and no actives after several hours. I think that when I finally do find my first patch it will be a sweet victory. Keep up the research and hunting it will pay off then you can tell us all about it. myk
