Bumping into other hunters
    #11354092 - 10/30/09 09:28 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

On my way to a park, I saw someone very obviously looking for shrooms in some wood chips while walking a big black dog (do you have a big black dog? :wink:) I've never actually seen someone looking before and realized how obvious I must look, though I don't care.
Went onward and found a few cyanes, noticed that all along the trails everywhere I went there was 1, just 1 of every species around picked and laying discarded on it's side. :sniper:
I think there may be other hunters around.
The next stop was a wood chip trail in the woods, where 2 other guys were milling around aimlessly along the trail. (hiking trail, who hikes in the rain?
1 guy ignored me (all good)
the other stopped and watched me very intently. When I took off my headphones, he asked what I was listening to!, had he asked what I was doing, I'd've told em', maybe had a new huntin' buddy, he was clearly there for the same reason, but was so coy about it, where as I'm wondering back and forth along the trail, head down, stopping to look closely at every single shroom around.

I could be wrong, ... come to think of it, I don't remember ever seeing any women there just hiking. But there are always guys there, just milling around (not eyes glued to the ground looking under bushes)

Maybe it's like a rest stop substitute for the "guys" guys. Maybe I won't analize that any further and just take a big walking stick from now on, that one dude seemed to be kinda following me, ... and I'm just so damn hot :shrug:

I was thinking these are some kind of inactive Panaeolus.


this last one , dunno. orange cap, orange stem, orange gills and rusty spore

Psathyrella, per the wood chip habitat.

The last one might be Tubaria but it doesn't really look like it for some reason...

Gills too close together?
There's quite a few in clumps, but they're really ... orange.

No.  Definitely Psathyrella.  It will be much more fragile than Panaeolus.

I always bump into other hunters, and stop for a quick chat to compare numbers and discuss the best spots to pick, and sometimes have a toke.

I pick next to a large army base, and always get a wave as the troops drive past me, while im in the midst of doing my anual Groucho Marx impression. :laugh:

Last year I had a good chat with a farmer who lamented the fact that he has not seen any people in his fields picking mushrooms. He even advised me that his fields were not producing libs anymore, and seemed genuinely upset by it.

sounds most likely to me, unless it's a well known active hotspot.  I've been advised by rangers & cops while camping around here and there about local 'clientele' that i might be seeing.  They didn't ask me to do anything about it, curiously...guess they just wanted to know if their mate was around.

Ive only been on 3 hunts still no luck, but on my first hunt we were in a feild at night and would jump to the ground every time a car drove by this was at about 12 at night, then one time a car drove by hit the brakes and started backing up, we where all like shit were busted but then two guys got out jumped the fence and started looking, we ended up searching with them and talking it was pretty cool.

I only seem to run into other hunters when I'm hiking or walking somewhere without the intention of hunting/picking (I know, that's a difficult thing to imagine). Just today I saw two guys hunting while on a walk near my house, but they ran off when they saw me heading toward them. I'm short, female and I don't look very intimidating, so I don't know why they ran off, haha. Usually I strike up a conversation if they look friendly, but now that I think about it, I'd probably feel a little weirded out if some random person came up to me and asked if I was hunting mushrooms.

Next time you bump into one of those other "Hunters" give him a big kiss and grab his ass. 

If he decks you, then he was probably there looking for mushrooms.

That's a bad sign and you'd be right.  Sign of other hunters.  I always look for things like that when I am in unfamiliar territory.  I'm always trying to notice everything anyway, even in my own area where no one hunts but me.  I want to know if anyone else has been there and what were they doing.  I've been reading "sign" since I was a kid.  And as careful as I can be about not leaving any.

we pulled up to this field yesterday and there was an old farmer with a shotgun and his grandson.so i am kinda sketchy and i notice his dog running with a duck.so i get out and walk over congradulating him on his hunt,and he says yall out for mushrooms? well my partners are getting scared because he has a shotgun and i say" i met your son out here about 10 years ago and he said you guys dont mind" he 's like" its real good back there."
i chuckle, i wish him the best and were were on our way.:wink:

but i did end up seeing 2 other car loads of young guys trying the ropes.i talked to a few to find out how much they know and if they are being safe.hell they are raping my spots i have had for years but i still didnt want them fuckin themselves up picking the wrong shit.
sure if they die from eating the wrong ones they wont be at my fields anymore.:wink: but that would just give our mushies a bad name and we dont need the bad rap.

had some guy right over my shoulder while hunting this morning, then after staying 10 feet behind me for 20 minutes, he grabs a big stick and I start thinking, . hmmm, maybe I should make a quick getaway, then he goes over to a small pool of water, retrieves the floating basketball, and runs off. It's not paranoia when they really are out to get you, but if they're not, then yeah, ... you're just paranoid.

If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
