Texas shrooms
    #3726843 - 02/03/05 10:04 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I just did my first REAL Shroom hunting today. Got a few. Just want to check to make sure they are the real deal.

Location: Houston, Tx. Right on a Cow farm
Gills: Dem be Gills. Blackish
Stem: easy to squeeze and there was some blueing.
Cap: Two of the big ones are a dark color. Looks like shades of bluing.
Spore Print: Working on it
Color of brusing: Blue

Here are some pics.

Bluing = good. But that shiny cap, i've seen it before, it was from a poisonous shroom. But bluing = good.

Sweet! My first time out and I got some. I was about to give up at one point but then that is when I started getting lucky.

The spore print should be dark brownish-purple.

Be 100% sure before you eat anything.

They look right. Check prints and everything though. Beware of LBM's "little brown mushrooms" alot of deaths have happened because of them. But if their brusing blue you should be fine.

yeah, looks like some cubies. the spore prints should clear it up, that small one with the shiny cap does look a bit different than the others, but the pics aren't really good enough for me to tell.  the biggest cap looks a bit too far gone to eat IMO.  I'd go find some nice fresh ones if I was you :wink:...

I'm with DH. Pitch that big one; it's rotten and probably full of maggots, and the second biggest one doesn't look to be much healthier. That little shiny one looks cubish to me, but its impossible to tell from those photos; if it bruises blue then it is P. cubensis.

It looks like you have found a productive field, however, If I were you, I would wait for a better collection before consuming.

Those are some waterlogged cubies. Yall just caught a lot of rain in H town. Good find dude.

DH and shroomydan both have a right idea. Find some fresher ones and get more than that and have some friends to share with when you eat them.


A few tips for you new found hobbie dude: Dont over pick! this will lead to a dead field that will not produce for a couple years. When you pick them cut them out of the ground innstead pulliung up the roots and all. That can also lead to a dormant field.
BE careful....Watchh for snakes, bulls, snakes andything else that could hurt or kill you. And watch for other things depending on how you are hunting. like day permission or night sneaky.
Have fun be safe. :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:
