Number of Hunts

How many hunts did it take most of you to find your first single or cluster of magic mushrooms? Is it common to find magic mushrooms on your first hunt, or does it take multiple hunts before you get any luck? I'm just wondering because after this winter, I plan on going out to hunt 'shrooms often, though I live in New England so I know not as many magic mushrooms grow around here as in California, Oregon and Washington. Thanks all.

i started last year around mid december...in seattle
not so good, no find whatsoever

this year, i began searching in mid september
after a good 20 hours or so, over the course of 3 weeks, i struck gold
my first patch was a very large multi-patch of cyanescens
later found out they would total to be a quarter pound dried

peace

You're going to have to do a lot of hunting before you find any magics.

Why not just hunt for some edibles?!

it depends on how lucky you are and how much research you do.

in the end, most people have to hunt time after time before finding anything in the psilocybian department, but your chances can be greatly improved by knowing what [specificaly] you are looking for, where and under waht conditions it grows, and what time you will find it.


--------------------



Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

I've been on a half dozen shroom hunts in Florida with no luck at all. But I think it was mostly due to the fact that I did not know at what time the conditions for shrooms were the best, so I sometimes hunted at bad times (like when there hadn't been rain in awhile).

I'm still hopeful, though.

About 6 months of hunting once or twice a week.

I found psychedelics on my first hunt. I even found them before I knew what they were. Of course, I live in a prime environment for mushroom growth.

I went about 7-10 times hunting before I found P. Semilanceata.
