Missouri hunting?
    #1664965 - 06/26/03 05:44 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Anyone have any suggestions on edible species to be looking for? I am going on a trip and during my trip I have a day with nothing planned, I want to check out some of the forests in the area. I'll be in columbia, but I know just outside there's some pretty lush area, for hunting.

Just wondering what's up around those parts right now. I know they get some pretty decent morel harvests, but it's a little too late for that. Only the summer stuff up. The people i'm staying with have some pasteur property in rocheport, or thereabouts. So i'll be looking for some agaricus loseyourlunchicus :wink: in that area.

Again, not looking for locations - just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on GOURMET mushrooms in the area. I am well aware of how to search for actives :wink:

Given the time of year, I'd probaly concentrate on Agaricus and Oysters. I don't think the boletes or chanterelles are up there yet, but it's always worth looking for anyway.

If you're into edible Amanitas, they're likely to be up, too.

Good luck, and happy mushrooming!

Have you eaten any edible amanitas? how are they? I've never eaten any. Which species would you suggest I hunt for?

Also, any specific tips on agaricus to avoid and the specifics to look for? i've got pretty good skills at ID'ing but agaricus scares me :wink: they are very similar. I will be taking my books with me of course, also.

I still haven't eaten any of the edible Amanitas. They're a bit tougher to work up the courage to try. The only edible Amanitas I'd consider eating at first would be the ones around Amanita vaginata. As a group they can recognized as having no ring and inamyloid spores. You can check for amyloid using Tincture of Iodine which can be found at the grocery store in the first aid section. I haven't seen anything yet where it fails and Meltzer's works, but I'm still trying things out with it.

The poisonous Agaricus species all have a couple things in common - they all bruise yellow (or stain yellow with KOH) and have that phenolic smell. With a few of them the bruising or smell can be pretty faint. But if you get species with the sweet almondy smell or that bruise reddish, then you know you're into the species that are relatively safe. I say relatively because Agaricus seems to cause more idiosyncratic reactions than any genus I know. But if you try a small amount the first evening and you're not at all ill by morning then they're fine. And there are some damn fine mushrooms for eating in Agaricus.

Good luck and happy mushrooming!

I'll assume you mean the Agaricus, since deadly Amanitas are well known. No, there are no deadly Agaricus. The symptoms of the toxic Agaricus species are primarily nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches. The accounts I've heard of indicate that it can make for a pretty unpleasant evening. But I can find no reference to any fatalities.

Happy mushrooming!

good enough for me to take small bite chances, at least. I'll be as accurate as i can with my ID's though, and I do have books to back them up, maybe i can hook up with a scanner while i'm there too, and get backups on my guesses. =)

thanks toxicman! and everyone else!
