hunting in cowfields with permission
    #1206263 - 01/10/03 08:08 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

i wanna know if any of you get permission to hunt in cowfields? like if i went ask the farmer if i could pick the mushrooms cuz im a myco student.

ive read of people doing this to unsuspecting neighbors, but are farmers more savvy? would they let anyway?

Even though they run around in suspendors and look stupid dont mean they are, the farmer knows the business dude so if you expect a guy to let you onto his property dont make the first sentence you say to him a lie, farmers of all people know shrooms grows in the shit, and they also know why a 17 year old punk in a tie die shirt wants to pick shrooms too, so come up with somthing other then the mycology student shit, hes a farmer not a cop, fuckin slip him a 20 dollar bill and pick away

I doubt a farmer would fall for the myco student thing.

in the uk we have a right to roam.Which means we can walk in cow/sheep/horse fieilds and the only farm land were not allowed to walk across is planted crops
where we're still allowed in but have to stick to the sides.

is there no laws like that in the us?

I've done it a few times here in Colorado. Of course, we don't have magic mushrooms growing on the cowpies here.

The farmers are nobody's fools. After giving them the whole spiel about mycological surveys and all the usual response is, "sure, but I get half the morels."

Happy mushrooming!

in the us there is private property, if your on someone's land you can be charged with tresspassing, unless you have permission. I guess if your walking across an area of land its ok, but if your sitting there picking shrooms, or pitching a tent in someones field, you'll get in some trouble

I have permission to visit three different fields using the Myco student thing. I took a digital camera and told them I was taking pictures for a study. I AM a biology student with an interest in this field. One farmer tried to stump me and asked what kind of research I was doing. Well i just let him have it. I am a DNA analyst by trade so I threw in a whole bunch of concepts that blew his mind. He cut me off and said that if I made a million dollars i would have to give him half. I think the bio student thing will work if infact you are a bio or myco student. If you are seventeen it probably won't work unless you are know enough to pretend like you're a myco-student not just a hobbyist. Then again I never take a walmart bag or anything. I take a small ziplock bag, take one specimen and cultivate it if i want to.

Use waxed paper instead. Plastic bags keep too much moisture in so that the mushrooms rot quickly. If the mushrooms are of a type that you know (or suspect) will dry out quickly, add some moss, grass, or fresh leaves to provide extra moisture.

Happy mushrooming!

you really can't blame farmers for not wanting people in there fields.
I grew up with cows and horses and own a few now myself. Every few months some dumb ass does something stupid to live stock around here. For example last month a man found a calf with a arrow stuck thru it's neck.

A year or so back someone actually ramed a huge stick up a cows ass and cased major damage that killed the cow but only after it suffered untill the farmer found it. Eyes get jabed out ect.
Grant it it's usually kids doing this. However those cows and horses are someones walking bank account.
+ lets say you get hurt in my field even without my permision you can sue me for everything i'm worth. Thats a really scary thought.
+ theres alot of farmers that grow a diff kinda cash crop that he wouldn't want the local shroomers walking up on.

could you gointo more detail about the wax paper? Do I use a wax paper bag? I never have a specimen in a ziplock bag for more than 30 mins. i guess that could potentially be bad anyway.

Brown paper bags are also better than
plastic.But i dont know about wax paper bags.
Should be the same if not better.

I think pretty much anything that breaths is ok.

Waxed paper is good because it breathes and the paper isn't destroyed if it gets wet.

Waxed paper bags are a bit tough to find but easy to use if the mushroom will fit inside. For sheets of waxed paper, place the specimen(s) in the middle of the sheet, roll the sheet gently around them (think cigar), then twist the ends to seal. The other advantage of bags over sheets is that it is easier to reuse bags.

Happy mushrooming!

I got the ones I have now from a friend who got them from:

Menominee Paper
P.O. Box 310
Menominee, MI 49858
Fax: 1-906-864-3284
Phone: 1-800-258-3781

Their website is www.menomineepaper.com, but it seems to be non-functional right now. Here is the Google cache of their ordering page. Assuming they haven't gone out of business you should be able to order using their 1-800 phone number. (They're the people who manufacture the Waxtex brand bags and sheets)

Happy mushrooming!
