Hello Everyone!!
    #4219309 - 05/25/05 06:53 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hello Everyone,

I'm a real Noob, i've been researching this site along with Erowid for the last few months and I think I wanna go try to do alittle hunting in my area. I am in the South-east Ontario Region of Canada, right accross the border from western Quebec, and Gatineau park. I was wondering if I should hit the park and try to find something there or drive just out of town to one of the many cattle fields in the area. Just wondering what you guys suggest as the best place to start. I know from the forums and FAQ that the common species for my area are Psilocybe silvatica, Panaeolus subbalteatus,and Gymnopilus viridans. Which one of these am I most likely to find?? Its been raining here for the last few day and we're finally getting some nice wheather so i'm ready to go.

Thanks for your help.

BlackSI

i believe they are listed as "toxic", but not poisonous.

A. muscaria is not a psilocybian mushroom, but is still considered a hallucinogenic.

P. silvatica is probably not the easiest find. It is found in wood debris like woodchips or well decayed conifer wood, in the fall.

Panaeolus subbalteatus grows in the spring, summer, and early fall. and grows from a wide variety of substrates, predominantly (but not just limited to) dung of horses and cows.

you really need to do this research by yourself.

it is all here at the shroomery, so do a search.

research is the most helpful thing you can do,
it will save you gobs of time once it comes down to actually hunting.

until then, i am locking your thread
because i am just re-answering all the questions that have already been asked and answered.

good luck with your search.
