Hunting question's.
    #11338680 - 10/28/09 03:45 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hello, and a wonderful meet to all of you!

This is would be my first post, and everywhere I look, I can tell you that I can't find any answers to my questions.

So I have just a few, and I have to say, I really did try too find the answers for them.

I have some wood's behind where I live, not gigantic or anything, but I went out there today and did my first Mushroom Hunt. Now, i didn't pick any, I just wanted to get a feel for the forest, and I marked off any area's that had some mushroom's growing that I felt would be important to come back too.

Now, my first question is this: Will I be able to find any useful mushrooms in the woods? I keep hearing people downing me for this, and say that Cow pastures are my best bet. I leave near a beach, no farms near me for miles!

Now, I know that the mushroom's that grow in my state are Gymnopilus junonius, Gymnopilus luteofolius, Panaeolus cinctulus, Psilocybe caerulipes, Psilocybe cubensis, Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata, Psilocybe semilanceata, and I can't really find a lot of info on them themselves, so I was wondering, am I looking in the right places? I look around pine tree's, which has been were I find the most, and any area near dead wood. Any tips?

It's been raining for the past 2 day's, and it's now done as of several hours ago. How long should I wait before I go in search of said mushrooms?

And finally, can I find any of the types of mushroom's that I listed growing in a yard? Near a house, to be more precise.

Thank's for anything given back to me, and I DO apologize if I somehow messed up a rule, although I don't see which one I would be breaking, I truly felt like I was posting accurately!

If your only looking in woods you need to be going to a specific type of wood for that species. Like Psilocybe semilanceata you wont find in the woods but you might find something live wavy caps.

Welcome to the Shroomery!
If you're hunting for edibles, you can find them out in the forest, however if you're looking for actives (depending on your location) the forest isn't the best place to look.

Since you say cubensis grow in your area, that's why people keep telling you to check cow pastures. Cubensis grow off of cow dung, and the only place to find cow dung is...well, around cows! Same with liberty caps.

You say you live near the beach, but it might be worth it for you to take a drive inland a little ways and see if you can find any farms/cow pastures and such.

Your best bets are probably gonna be cubes/liberty caps.I'm unsure about the rest of the species you listed, but cubes/liberty caps don't grow in or anywhere near houses/lawns.

Good luck hunting.

Thank you. Actives being, hrm, the ones that are use for a recreational use should I say? And not the cooking type. Just making sure I got that right.

When i say i am near the beach, i am about a 30 min drive away. Im alright finding mushrooms right now that are poisonous, or edible for cooking, because it helps me identify them. Plan on going out and buying a book soon.

My boss own's a farm, but in the sense of crops, not animals. I guess I can try finding a pasture to look.

on another note, I find it funny that wavy cap's are wavy, yet Wikipedia says the caps are flat.

one thing he forgot to mention is that the Cubes will grow ON the cow dung. The Liberties Won't be ON Cow dung but Around it, and in places that it has been.

That's good to know, now to figure out how to find a pasture near me as well as how I can go about asking if I may be so obliged to go into their field. I have no problem asking why, I am worried about the "Why" question, ha.

Just got back from my second scavenge in the forest. Seem to be an abundance of all white Mushrooms. I have seen some with red tops, these of course, I have gone ahead and avoided these, know thing that they are not anything that I can really use.

You live in a state that has Psilocybe cubensis AND Psilocybe semilanceata? I somehow doubt that. The former are a (sub)tropical species, Psilocybe semilanceata is a moderate/cold climate species. Care to name the state?

Nice catch.  He's probably mistaken.  That happened to me once.  It was when I thought I was wrong.

I wanna fix something I just said. I shouldn't say I KNOW taht they are here becaus eof this site, let me change that to I am fairly confident that they are in my state due to this site, and it's high regards of being reliable from friends.

That's interesting. Who told you that Psilocybe semilanceata grow in Virginia?

Both species grow there, but they are both very rare.

Psilocybe semilanceata is listed in growing in Virginia by A Worldwide Distribution of the Neurotropic Fungi, which means there is a herbarium deposit to back that up.  They do not list P. cubensis, but they have been found there by people in this forum.

Any idea of what active's I can find? And what's the best place TOO look? I would prefer looking in woods, seeing as there are more around me than a cow pasture, but I may be able to one day go ask for a hunt into a cow pasture.

Ok, you Americans sure know better than me, it still strikes me as odd. I would still doubt that they share habitats in the same geographical latitude. Maybe P. cubensis in the far south and P. semilanceata in the far north of the Virginias, but in the same pasture potentially? I would still dispute that.

I have not gone out to a pasture yet, I have just ventured into a small wood's behind me. I'm not suspecting to find any Active in my woods, although one can always hope.

You will find active Gymnopilus in the woods and active Panaeolus cinctulus in your lawns and in piles of horse dung.

Thanks Alan! I have a general idea what I am looking for active wise in the woods now. I will use the specs in a journal that I can use from Wikipedia, as well as pictures, If I beleive they may be of either type, I will spore print them, then post some ID requests up here to make sure they are what they are.

I'm presuming off the info that I know, I hope I am correct, that I will be looking for Panaeolus cinctulus around composite piles, which I presume would be rotting tree's, and the same for Gymnopilus luteofolius?

i live in southeastern virginia, as well.  Our summers are hot (85 - 100F) and humid, and our winters are cool (30 - 50F) and equally humid.  depending on what time of year you look we have conditions suitable to both species. although i have never found either one.  gymnopilus is probably the best bet for this time of year.

Nice, I am a while form the ocean front, which causes a problem, because of the whole being no where near pastures. Thus why I am happy to know that i can find gymnopilus in the woods!
