hi
just back form a successful trip.... found LOTS of magic mushrooms around the edge of a horse field... the owners of the horses dumped all their horse shit on the edge of a field... prime place to pick them got around a 100 of em. but i saw also lots of other mushrooms looked to me like baby lib caps.. they were kinda white / yellow / brown but they had a wide cap... looked like they were gonna develop into some nice big lib caps... maybe ill check them out to see if they go darker brown and taller in the next few days if they dont kinda mature i dont think ill pick them at all as i dont know if they are magic mushrooms... btw was my 1st time hunting :smile: happy hunting w00t

>btw was my 1st time hunting

That's pretty obvious. Your descriptive skills are seriously lacking. Just judging by the contents of your post, I'd say you probably don't have liberty caps. I'm being 100% honest with all judgement aside: out of your 4 posts, none of them so that you are capeable of identifying liberty caps. Please do not eat what you found unless you can get us a much better description and a picture. Read the first three thread in this forum, they'll help you out tremendously.

ive said it before and i will say it again and again if i have to, dont go picking mushrooms and try to match them up to pictures of "magic mushrooms" this is how people die.

and liberty caps do not grow on dung, at all, sorry.

they grow in living grass only, and most prolifically on sage grass.

the soil should be moist and well-manured, weather humid and cold.

if the mushrooms you found only grew around dung, then they arent libs, because thats simply not a characteristic and lib ever has. ever.

you have panaeolus sphinctrinus i think judging by your vague description, that makes my call a guess-call, so please dont eat, try to post pics, we CAN help you and you will waste alot less time.

also, try sage grass, it grown in dark green clumps, very spiky, often it ditches, you need to part it with your hands and dig down in the shade for them, i guarentee this is the best way, it is rare to find them in regular grass in quantity.

huge piles of shit have no relation to grass growing liberty caps. liberty caps grow in grass and nothing else.

Here's a quote from the same page as your Liberty Cap pic...

"WARNING: Only an experienced mycophile should identify any species of mushrooms. Psilocybe semilanceata is what is known as a LBM - little brown mushroom - there are many thousand lookalike species which could easily be mistaken for this relatively non-toxic (although hallucinogenic) species. All it takes is the consumption of a toxic mis-identified species to end someones liffe. No mushroom should ever be consumed without being 100% sure of its identification."

I guess you missed that part.

Yeah seriously dude what the hell is wrong with you. It's not a joke about properly identifying mushrooms. I think there are a few people on this forum who have accidentally eaten a mushroom they "thought" was active and have had a very unpleasant trip to the emergency room. To put this bluntly, dont fuck around with mushrooms, because one wrong move and your dead.

Peace
