Hunting for me is a strenuous task; i live in panama city beach and the only fields i am familiar with are a 40min drive, followed by trespassing through fenced areas, so when i go i want to be sure that i will leave with some cubes (i cant identify any others). since the hurricane, it has yet to rain good but i was curious as to the best timing to go hunting. the most productive times for me so far have been at 5-7pm at night after maybe a day and a half of rain prior to me being there.
what are your opinions on timing; would it be okay if it rained slightly and i went the day aftererward? would there be a good chance of me finding a couple grams without rain & simply relying on our huidity & good temps?
i live in ga but ive been hunting down there and i think you can always find stragglers when it hasnt rained but you shuld be able to find a descent amount with just a little rain. i think for any mushroom its kinda the same, the more rain (within reason) the more mushrooms and the longer they fruit. just check regularly during the season and good luck...

I went out cube hunting a week or two ago(in Central GA) and we hadn't had rain in a good week, still came out with 4 nice sized cubes. Just look in areas of thick grass, and along tree lines the humidity stays high there. Time of day for cubes doesn't really matter at this time of year. The heat isn't as hardcore and they won't dry up nearly as fast. In the hotter months it's probably better to go in the mornings if you're looking for prime specimens. I'm not too picky when it comes to cubes though. If the sun has done a pretty good job of drying them, I'll still pick them provided they're not infested with bugs.
