Where to start?
    #382260 - 08/30/01 07:18 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

I'm interested in mushroom hunting, but don't know where to start. There are millions of different mushrooms growing in my region, and so far I havn't really found any info on AK shrooms except for Amanita Muscaria, which grow abundantly. So... Should I start with a book? Or what is the best method?

2 best general books are David Arora's "Mushrooms Demystified" & the Audubon Society's "Field Guide to North American Mushrooms." You might also consider taking an intro to mycology class at your local college, or joining a local mycological society, nature-study group, or hiking club. Try to meet other interested people & hook up with some experienced pickers who will share their knowledge in exchange for gas/ driving.

I haven't heard much about any psycoactive mushrooms in Alaska (aside from A. muscaria, which is not everyone's cup of tea), but there are many fine edibles to be found there. Learn what they are, you will not go hungry!

Yeah, David Arora is so much fun to read. He told so many stories in Mushrooms Demystified, man. It's almost like an autobiography! Man, I wish he wrote periodicals!
Another good book to read is Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World by Paul Stamets. It goes into the detailed surface-area of the "common" "Magic" mushrooms known on Earth. Well, excluding the Amanita family, of course!
Stay cool and merry mushings!-Levi7.
