large cope find-pics in a couple hours.
    #3574489 - 01/03/05 10:20 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

well i was up at 4am or so this morning and i decided that dawn would be a good time to sneak into my field and take a looksee. my last hunt on new years day brought back about 20-30 copes. half of which i ate inthe field. bad idea.

but anyway...this morning , i went out there and low and behold, they had sprouted all over the place! so i was out there for about an hour just picking away...i stubbed my toe on a cactus, but the good news is that i brought abck about....100-150 copes. close to a pound. some were over an inch across which i rarely see.

some had maggots. but i figure if i can dry the copes , i can dry the maggots and hey...protien. waste not want not. its their fault for getting on my mushrooms in the first place.

i'm using the black t-shirt method because i dont have a decent fan. this fan has three setting and the lowest is like a hurricane.

i took some picutres, but i have to use the other computer which is upstairs with my room mate who is currently asleep. i'll post em in a coupel hours.

Do as i say. Do as i do.
Good. Now instead of eating a mushroom that is not yours. Eat the ones in the super market. Thanks. -droz

Nice GP. Gotta be gentle with those though. They're definitely fragile.

I believe beating them up causes degradation of the psilocin in them, so you're killing the magic if that is true.

i play tyhe part of the jogger when i go out....so i really cant be too jentle. i stuff what i can in my pants and run on down the road. in small towns, cops like to pull you over for looking at them funny. sometimes i'm a mormon...sometimes i'm a jogger =D ...but the good news is , the both of us (me and the copes) got back alive and well. still drying...sigh...t-shirt style. and then into the honey =D. i'm going to try to avoid the water build up this time. i just wonder...can maggots reproduce in honey? a good question for the forum.

YEs you can have bugs in your hioneied shrooms. I personally never recommend honey for storage.

The Aztecs use to serve the shrooms with either chocolate and/or honey. And thwen the chocolate was bitter, nor super sweet like today. HEre is a short quote from Ott in his book Pharmacotheon.


and more of the same:



mjshroomer.

Also, it is really good to take special care of the Copelandias. They loose much potency when treated as you say you stuff them in your pockets.

Carry a small cookie box (Chips Ahoy or Ritz Cracker box under your jogging sweat shirt. IT will protect the shrooms. I have used those boxes for years. I am referring to the small cookie sized ones you get at 7-11 type stores.

mj and have a shroomy day.

btw, some cow pies hcan have 100-200 shrooms in a single dung heap. In Hawaii where I lived for twelve years, an average two to three hour picking in season could yield 1200-2000 shrooms every other day from a single location.

copes have to be my favourite looking mushroom (think theyre beautiful as long as theyre in shape), youve managed to mangle yours proper tho. if i could get hold of copes where i lived id be so happy.

dude if you dry them you could just put them in a crappy ziploc bag they would last for a week.
EDIT
*point being, nothing too elaborate is necessary for a such a short time of storage...dont spend more time getting them ready for storage than they will actually be in storage
