Best time of day to go picking?
    #3348079 - 11/11/04 07:51 PM (12 years, 26 days ago)

Now I know that the best time of day for mushroom picking is in the early hours of the morning, but due to my current situation with school, I dont have the spare time in the morning to do so.  So I guess what im really asking here is if I go out to pick in the mid afternoon (around the hours of 2-4pm) am I less likely to find anything.  I live in PCNW just so you know.  I'd like to thank all in advance for your opinions and help answering my many questions on the shroomery.  Happy Hunting  :thumbup:

Time of day dosn't matter much if at all. If your planing to sneak in cow feilds go late at night. If not just go whenever you want.

It all depends on how much you want to see someone, pull out your camera, and take a picture of the nearest maple leaf. I'll tell you, I go to school and get up early so I don't have to good-day all who move around from 2-4 PM.

From my experience, and not being able to find shit in the dark, I always go picking in broad day.  My field is pretty safe during the day with coverage from trees.  In previous fields that I've been to, I've been seen and chased so just make sure you have some sort of coverage from a house or road if you go in the day.

peace~ :cool:

I think he's saying that he goes picking early in the morning to avoid people going "Soooo uhh... whatcha doin?"

Early morning in parks= not many people. Afternoon= people.

How do you do it late at night. If farmer brown sees you out there with a flashlight you'll likely get a shotgun pointed at you and if lucky you won't get shot. I prefer going during the day. I'll park a ways down from the field and hike to it. Look for fields that have woods near or that are a bit off main roads. I have a great field that you have to walk through a cemetary to get to. THere are lots of woods surrounding it. Find a place like that where you don't have to worry about intruders. I think either early morning or in the afternoon, when the sun isn't too bright, also helps. I can see shrooms better when there's a little shade.

If you have the time, go hunting just after sunrise and if possible on a misty day, every time I did this I found a new patch of great mushrooms.

It's even better if you eat the mushrooms when you find them :smile:

Good luck

Yea, what Gumby said. I was thinking you were worried about people seeing you staring at the ground and wandering around. Now I know what you mean... the mushrooms come out in the morning. :thumbup:
