Just a little hunting question
    #1338692 - 02/26/03 08:19 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

This is my first post here. I have read a lot of the posts and enjoy all the helpful information. I can already see that a lot of you are very quick to offer help, that is so cool. Well I am 26 years old and I live in Northern Cali(no specifics, read that one many times already...lol) I am not intending on ingesting any psychtropic plants/fungi. I am merely studying. Yeah that's a good one, studying. Well on to the question, thanks in advance.

My boyfriend and I have been hunting and looking at mushrooms around our area. Not for ingesting(for real), just to get used to hunting them and ID'ing them. My question is...We have been bringing them home in their surrounding dirt(we use a bulb planter to pull them up) and just place them in little boxes. The reason I am doing this is cause some of them are so small I can't make a spore print. Should I continue this way or is it easier to just pull the shrooms out with all there base and stem and "dissect" them from there? If the shrooms are so small how do I get a spore print?

Well, Id say that it would be easier to just pick them, instead of digging them out. Mainly because when you just pluck them, you wont be damaging much of the underground mycelium, which is the main part of the fungi.

If the mushrooms are so small to spore print, then its probably not even worth your time!! :smile:

Just to let you know, hallucinogenic mushrooms in the NorCal area are over with for the season. You're best bet is to hunt for some edibles like chantrelles!!!

But, for spore printing, its best to place your cleanly sliced mushroom cap on a flat peice of foil, and cover with a plastic cup. Cut the stem off as far as it you can w/o damaging the gills/pores.

Good luck! And happy mushrooming :wink:

Ali
Good luck hunting it's heaps of fun, you can find so many different mushrooms and have a great day out it the forest or feilds. Study as many as you can a build up a data base, make a fungi map and record spore prints, keep dried mushrooms for further studies :wink:
If you wish to send people spore prints then try the foil idea, but if you wish to study the mushrooms i suggest you take a spore print with the stem cut off, cap facing down on some black/white paper with a glass placed over the top of the cap leave for some time then remove the glass and reveal the print have a good look for the colour.
Have fun and good luck with your studies :wink:

Enjoy the world around you ...... Good Luck Hunting and Collecting. The future of shrooms depends on all of us.

Oooh I'll answer that question!! :smile:

Okay, for Boletus species, Fall through early winter. You're gonna wanna go out a few days after the first winter rains. They will be growing under pine, and some oaks.  Then after that, you've got all of winter to find some other species like Oyster mushrooms, and ooh the list goes on. Springtime you'll find some chantrelles, and the springtime Amanita.

Then through spring, if your lucky... Reallly lucky you can find some Morels.
