How long after a good rain do you wait to hunt?
    #3795289 - 02/17/05 10:25 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Do you go out the morning after the rain stops? The next day? The day after that?

I'm in TX, just wondering when the best time to go out is.

What has worked in the past for - if you'll excuse me-, y'all?

i recall reading for cubensis hunters, the next sunny day after a heavy rain is a good time to hunt. Best way to know when to go out is get out and get some experience hunting, soon it'll seem like the mushrooms are trying to find you.

first sunny day

we went out right after the last rain (texas), found some various shrooms, went back out a few days later and all the shrooms we found (we didnt pick them) were all dried up, and no new ones were present...

I always go out the next day and keep going out for about the next 5 days or so. It does depend on what species you seek to some extent.

Assuming you just mean mushrooms in general, some species can reach maturity the day after a rain and be dried up by evening.
The majority will last longer than that though.
If you go the day after a rain, you might run into many that are small and immature but it couldn't hurt to locate them and come back later to pick once they have grown.

It takes alot longer than one day for cubensis to pop up.
You might find some the day after beacasue it has been the right conditions for a while the shrooms where there from previous rain or moisture,i would say wait a minumum of three days.

IT takes cubensis and most magic shrooms less than 24 hours to pop up and be full grown.

Wow i dont think i have ever found cubes the day after it rains i should check my fields the day after it rains more often.

But i have a question,when growing cubes i note that it takes about three days for the mushes to mature,wouldnt it be the same in the field?

I always wait three or four days before hunting and always get large amounts.

well if you already have good success why change it

here in texas it can get pretty f ucking hot, dries shit up very fast (literally, it dries the cow shit up into dust, and mushrooms)

I usually wait about 2 or 3 days so that the mushrooms that I pick are already fairly dried (less work for me) and so that that ground isn't muddy and nasty. Also sometimes not all the mushrooms would be full grown by then.. some dont' start coming up till the 2nd day.
