How do you get into the Cow fields?
    #2702866 - 05/19/04 09:47 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Well I live on the east coast of florida, and my county is pratically surrounded by cow fields. people would love to live here...but i keep reading the sheriff's news in the paper about all these people getting arrested for "felony possession of psilocybin and trespassing and I have a hard time bringing myself to park my car next to a field, hop a barbwire fence, and mosey around for hours looking for mushrooms! I also cant see myself knocking on some farmers door, "hey do you mind if i roam your cowfileds looking for..uhh....completly legal edible mushrooms..? How do you all go about doing it? Do you search at night or what? Any tips would be great.

yeah never park your car by the field.walk atleast a few miles to the location.my field is over 3 miles away and I used to walk it everyday.
goodluck,
dont do anything stupid though like littering the field and such,respect it and it will respect you in return.
Peace,
PF~

Hide 'em under horse mushrooms, eh? That would be interesting to watch.

Use your imagination. I would imagine you could use a bike. Park down the road & ride the bike, ditch it in the weeds while in the field.

Have someone else drive.

Go to fields where you can hide your car.

Ride a motorcycle, it's easier to hide.

Ride by the field and throw your bag full of paper sacks, scissors, camoflauge gear, water, snack, flashlight...throw the bag in the ditch by the field, park safely a few blocks away and jog in jogging clothes to where your stuff is and sneak in.

It's illegal to trespass though and I'm advising you not to do it!

Honestly, if you can't think of some ways to shroom, you might be better off staying indoors. Just a suggestion.

Hello,

I would be extremely interested in seeing some of those police reports with people in florida getting arrested for "but i keep reading the sheriff's news in the paper about all these people getting arrested for "felony possession of psilocybin and trespassing".

If anything, they should Only be charged with Trespassing and trespassing only.

I would love to see proof or a police report.

I also live on the East Coast and I havent read a thing about anyone getting arrested for Psilocybin possession,Trespassing yes.

Maybe I should pay more attention to the local paper?

I was busted for that(possession of psil w/intent to distrubute) in Ga but the laws are different in Fl. I'd like to see the article too.

You can read dozens of shroom busts and reports from around the world at my Grape Vine at my site at:

http://www.mushroomjohn.com/news.htm

The coolest one is about the deputy sheriff who shot two mushroom pickers in the back while handcuffed because he told them never to come into the field again to pick shrooms and they did not listen to him.

When I was in Mississippi, I would only pick on the outermost edges of the fiel where I could make a sprint to the fenceline and totally clear it in like 30 sec or less- you will still find plenty and it seems extreme but it's hard for anyone to prove that you were in your field when, by the time they get to you, you are way the fuck off of the property. And yes- bring no cars, weed, unnecisaries, bright clothes or shoes, and keep you mouth shut in the field- only pick alone and at night. If you don't go into the middle of a twenty acre field in full sunlight at 1:00 with lime green adidas jumpsuit smoking a spliff, you lower your chances of getting your facebones kicked crooked but an angry redneck farmer. And littering is not also wrong- most shroomers know it is a damndable sin.

in nova scotia, you are allowed to cross any property that is not posted "no tresspassing" and is uncultivated (pasture does notqualify as cultivated) furthermore you must obey all laws reguarding vandalism and littering.

the stipulation? you must possess fishing gear and intend to use it.  you mustbe in adherance to provincial fishing regulations, meaning, if you intend to catch game fish, you must possess a permit. failure to do so will result in fines for poaching AND tresspassing.

luckily, i only fish for goldfish and bullheads which are pest species :smile: my gear consits of a spool of 30 lb test, a sinker and a trident hook.  thats it.
if anyone asks me why im there i say fishing, then i show them my gear and explain the law..... because alot of people dont know about the law.
  check your local laws, it may be legal to cross uncultivated land for fishing

Well I exaggerated perhaps with 'all these,' I have only read that part of the paper about 6 times and I have seen 2 articles. The most recent one was about 2 weeks ago (I guess whenever it rained here last). I dont still have the paper, but I will continue to read them and scan the articles as I find them. The exact phrase was "tresspassing on agricultural land and felony possession of psilocybin, also known as mushrooms." I always thought that mushrooms were legal to posess in florida, but I guess that's not so anymore.
Thanks MJ for the link!

How about a link to that shroom bust article. IF I ever get Static ip I can add it to my site. Otherwise at the moment I have no access to add or remove images or papers.

Oh sorry, that article is from my local newspaper. It's a scanned image of the 'police activity' section. So I dont have a link. You're welcome to use the picture though.

The only things I can add are: Get someone to drop you off at night w/a red lensed flashlight (the old army right-angle ones are good and come with a red lens). Red light is harder to see from a dist at night. Hell, chances are you have friends that live adjacent to a pasture. I do. :headbanger:

You either get permission to look for edibles, or to look for the magic kind. You should never trespass on someone's land, as a property owner myself I find such things vile. I'm not one to think that we should be told we can't eat a specific kind of mushroom just because it has hallucinogenic properties, but I still believe that we need laws to preserve some semblance of order. Just because your breaking an unjust law, doesn't give you the right to break a just law. I for one would be very angry, and very well armed if I found someone trespassing. I've let people pick in my fields who have asked, both those who pretended to be looking for edibles only, and also those who confessed their real intentions

I think the best way is to start your own patches. That way u have complete control and no risk of gettin arrested. unless certain circumstances work against u but thats just plain bad luck. Best of luck!
