Hunting in Wisconsin.. ?
    #1867320 - 08/31/03 01:24 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Yes.. another post inquiring about the reliability of magical mushrooms to find in [the quite boring] Wisconsin.
The season is at hand, and I feel if this isn't the perfect time.. then as soon as Wisconsin gets rain, it will be time.  Or at least for mushrooms which I'm speculating to grow here.. which is why I need your expert opinions. :confused:

First off, I'm pretty aware that Panaeolus Subbalteatus grows around here, in horse dung, all summer long.. although I really haven't the resources to go to a horse farm and search, and they don't seem to be rewarding, unless in very high yeild.  So those are kind of a second hand thing to worry about, as far as mushrooming goes..
As for the mushroom which I've been waiting to go searching for, but still don't have enough basis on it's existence here in mid-western wisconsin.. Psilocybe Semilanceata.
The nights have started getting colder, and we've got a little rain, and I'm anxious to go get out into the fields, squatting for Liberty Caps.
I read in a few other posts on the thread about them being in Wisconsin, though less known, and less pronounced than than the famous Northwestern Pacific.

So, my question is.. should I go looking for psilocybe semilanceata once the humidity/rainfall/temperature permits?  Or should I stay at home, and keep on learning more about mushrooms I'll never find?
Sorry if I seem naggy or such, but I don't really have any other place to go out and search for them.. as of now.

And another question, if any of you know.  Do P.  Weilli, P. Pelliculosa, or P. Ceurulipes (the vastly elusive) or any other species not mention grow ANYWHERE here?
I'm wondering because I'm desperate, but have long been interested in mushroom hunting.. even without the psychedelic profit.  But that profit is something that I would well cherish, and pride.
In any matter, any responses by any of you would be more than appreciated, thank you!

Boring Wisconsin wasn't so boring when the Rainbow Gathering was in town last summer

Anyway. If your so desperate, I suggest taking a trip to Oregon or N. Cali in the fall. Last year was kind of a weird season . Around Halloween, take a trip to the coast and chat with some people. With any luck, you'll find what your looking for. Actually determination is more important than luck......with real determination , you can do anything

About 20,000 people retreat from Babylon eacch year to gather in a National Forest. In 2002 , the gathering was held in S. Wisconsin.

Buuuut you definately have mushrooms in Wisconsin.....check out the book "Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World " by Paul Stametts to find out exactly what species you can find there and in what type of environment. This is a great book to have my friend

I'll go ahead and tell you ahead of time. Some people have claimed that Azures grow in WI. They don't, so there's no use in looking for them.

Just spoke with someone who manages a property in Wisconsin. They picked pans. a plenty this year. Godd weed up that way to they sa if you know the right people. Just watch your ass for aliens. They've eaten cows- they'll not hesitate to eat you.
