How to ask a farmer to hunt?
    #4128558 - 05/03/05 06:15 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hi I been doing my shroom studying before I go hunting and got a good book. There is a big farm on my road with cows and horses I Would like to hunt. How should I ask a farmer to mushroom hunt? I think He will know just becasue mushrooms and cow pastures. How Would I go about asking him to mushroom hunt? If he ask what kind of mushrooms what should I say? thanks Justin

You're an amatuer mycologist studying all types of mushrooms. If you are allowed to graze the field, pick EVERY shroom in site. Offer to show the farmer your finds after. Promise you wont fuck his field up, nor bother his cattle/horses.
Go by yourself, dont bring people with.
If you are young, make sure you dont look like a punk kid, dress appropriate, and act responsible, farmers are typically polite people.

I dont know what else to say. Just be straightforward. And dont act nervous. The worst he could say is get out of here. goodluck

offer him a small amount of money upfront to use his land for your amateur mycological purposes.  as stated, make sure to be straight forward about your intentions and assure him nothing will be taken from his fields but mushrooms, and you won't leave anything extra there.  pollution to the fields and fucking with the animals(and also tresspassing) are what piss farmers off the most.  make sure you stray away from all 3 of those things and you'll be fine.


and in the chance he says no, and u ultimately deceide to hunt his field(like you probably already deceided) make sure u leave the field in its same shape.  still treat the farm with ultimate respect, as you would if he gave u his permission :thumbup:  happy trips :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

if you know for sure there are Shrooms in this field
and the farmer says "no" then tell him this:

"look,
if you dont let me onto your field
then i am coming at night, and i will
be wearing camoflauge, and i will
bring all my friends.
either way, i'm going to pick your mushrooms."

hahaha

Woodsman, I realize that you're trying to improve your posting habits in this forum but your success is slow.


You seem to have started to follow the rules but if you would start using the search function before posting a question that is very common(such as this), that would be great and make you a much more enjoyable poster.

Just remember, if you think it's been asked before, chances are that is has. The search function rocks your face off.

I wish psychedelic mushrooms were legal, because I would like to indulge in this amazing fruit of the earth. Unfortunately, I can only learn about this interesting hobby, and cultivate legal mushrooms.

I don't like going on property I don't have premission to hunt. I asked this one farmer he said his son hunts so he would not let me lol. thats ok. I asked the next guy he said hell yeah I don't care and he asked me if he could go with me sometimelol. He told me him and his mom use to pick mushrooms out in the cow fields for years. I was thinking what kind mMMM lol. He said they use to make tea with them and then he kinda laughed. So that was cool he has 140 arces with about 40 arces of pasture! so thats gonna be real cool this summer! Also allowed to ride my 4 wheeler in the pasture to hunt some sweet!

I just can't picture a farmer being nice about the whole thing or even wanting to go hunting with someone. I don't know maybe I just have the wrong impression about famers.....

I have met dozens of farmers , whom, over the years, have allowed me to pick on their properties, including a sheriff in Hilo who allowed me onto his ranch to collect Copelandia mushrooms. He use to be a student of the professor at Hilo who teaches biology and mushroom id at the U of H in Hilo. The sheriff was very nice and while I was in their field picking he had his wife bring me out some lemonade.

On one ocassion I had one farmer turn on his electric fence to full power. I got knocked out for a few hours during a light rain when I went to leave a field.

Most farmers will say no, but it all depends on how you talk to them at the time you meet them. Anyone who owns their own property does not like someone who does not own it on their land without their permission. Overall it gives pickers a bad name if people go onto others properties and then callt hem names or hassle the owners when told to leave.

It is better to asked then get a butt full of buckshot or disappear completely. Remember the two shroomers in Florida who were shot in the back by a deputy sherfiff who told them never to come into the field again or he would shoot them. Luckilly for the two dead shroomers, a 2nd deputry sheriff was driving by and observed the whole indcident and arrested the cop for murder.

btw. The cop did less than three years for manslughter, although he really murdered the two pickers.

Another shrooemr died from drowning while drunk on wine and fell face down into a swamp somewhere in Florida.

You sure do seem rebellious! I hope you do it carefully. I agree, if you mean no harm and are not a drug dealer and the person says no and you KNOW there are shrooms in the field, a night run may be in order.

Can anyone tell me if I went to a field at 3am, and the moon was not out, what are the chances I would be able to see the mushrooms?
Some people say bring a small light to help spot them, but wont that help get YOU spotted easier( not that anyone will be awake to see you)
I searched for 'ninja run' threads but came up empty.
Can anyone offer advice or even better links to threads where this has already been discussing using various stealth tactics at night for maximum quickness and spot-ability of the mushrooms?
