Has anyone been finding any in N. Central Texas? In or around the Dallas area? I see the southern area is starting to get a few already.

I have never had any luck at all in North Texas. I think i have been in almost every pasture from North Denton to South Waco, and I have never found a damn thing. I know that it can be done, i just haven't been able to do it.

Not to say i have not had fun looking and meeting lots of new people.
But i digress, i cant find any actives in North Texas. Last year in the spring and fall i logged more than 1000 miles on my vehicle. Oh well, i did have fun

Not every field has magic shrooms growing in them.

And then some of the ones you visited may or may not have them and then it may be the werong time to pick. A field can have them and the next year maybe not. Depends on when the cattle shit and the rainfall comes.

It takes five to six weeks for the shroosm to appear after the spores have dispursed.

Just keep looking. sooner or later you are bound to come across some.

so very very True MJ, my cope/cube field... has been mostly bare with an abundance of Antillarum until this past Sept, then I had copes everywhere with a few cubes in the mix and Not one Antillarum, proves to you how the weather, etc/ is such a big factor

Yes, do please keep looking, But Ive hunted as far North as Waco with no luck- bunch of nice looking inactives tho.

Your best luck in North texas would be to head to Palestine, the Piney woods of TX

Yes the Piney Woods are said to be really nice. Most people laugh when i tell them that i have never even done mushrooms, but i am willing to drive all over the GREAT STATE OF TEXAS in order to find some. I enjoy adventure and the thrill of the hunt so I love it all the same. I spent all last year hunting, this year I think i might try and grow, but who knows.

MJ, i used to post on the forum under a different name, but changed it to this new one. We spoke for a while, I was going down to Costa Rica and you gave me some really good tips.

BTW, thanks. Thanks a million. Arenal, and the pastures on the road up to it, near the wind mills, you would not belive the finds I had. I also did a week long trek through Manuel de Antonio National Rain Forest, and documented a bunch of amazing mushrooms. If you are ever interested in seeing some pics (I swear some of them were glowing) let me know. Thanks.

Heh I saw an animal with four legs and brown fur. Anyone have any idea what it is?

Just kidding around.

That second poster said I shouldn't post this here. Is that true?

Anyway we found some cubes before winter and a person I was with dug up some of the (dried) cow crap and brought it home. Once home we found all these white round balls. It was pretty funny but I finally found out they were Stinkhorns and the balls were the volva they grow in, my friend thought they had found a new species or something. It was pretty funny.....really

What's bad is that this area doesn't have the variety that other states have or I could be wrong.

Yes the piney woods are the real deal. Absolute treasure trove. I lived in Nacogdoches, TX for 16 years (born and raised basically). The PW is the place of THE "McCoy's" shroom field.
I think you should consider rechanging your name; someone named photoguy came through here a while back and made himself to be an immature punk and a hotheaded little prick. Dont want that kind of reputation.
