What might I be doing wrong?
    #2755861 - 06/02/04 06:05 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I am new to mushroom hunting and have gone out on a few hunts with no luck. I have been hunting in cow pastures in Central North Carolina (USA) and have yet to find anything that even resembles a mushroom. I am wondering what I might be doing wrong so I figured I might want to ask a few questions to the experts...

Should they be Black Angus cows or does it matter?
Do I need to look for fresh dung?
What time of day/night is best?
What time of the year is best?
What is the best weather?
Any other advise I could get would also be very helpful.

Do I need to look for fresh dung?  Older dung is what you want to be looking in.

What time of day/night is best?  The shrooms don't care what time it is, they're there 24 hours a day unless someone else finds them :wink:

What time of the year is best?  Depends what you're looking for.

What is the best weather?  Same as above.





I don't know that I've heard of cubensis growing that far north, what are you hunting for?

I guess I really don't know what I am looking for. Where should I look to find a hallu. Shroom?

Cow crap, Horse crap, pig crap, and pretty much any grazing mamals crap. What till it rains a couple of inches(Or just keep on wattering some crap) and you should get SOME kind of mushroom. Not saying it is oging to be phsycodelic or even edible

i am sorry, but this post is very pathetic, dont ask people for help. do reserch, then go find stuff, if you find something that sounds like the mushroom your looking for, send a pic in, and all the other facts about it and then maybe some one can help you.

well the data you asked for in the first place was vauge, if the cow feilds that you have been searching for dont have any mushrooms, then go to a new one. the day and time shouldnt matter. probably best after a fresh rain. just explore the vast wonders of different horse and cow feilds, and the kind of cattle shouldnt matter.

there, thats some help for you.

Thank you very much. I have checked a few different cow fields. I guess I will just keep looking and hope for the best. Thanks again.

yeah, it may take hours upon hours to find a mycelium that produces fine fruits, but it will be worth it in the long run to continue to pick the mushrooms from that patch. I myself have only found 2 pan subb feild areas and none of them have been in horse pastures. and this is with over 20 hours of hunting or more easily.
