It rained two days ago. Last night I went in a cow field and searched through shit with some friends, only finding spores of mushrooms. After this, I heard that mushrooms can only be found in the morning? Is this true? *shrug* I went back to the same place this morning from 5:45AM-6:30AM, sure enough there were shrooms scattered across the field, but I did not find -one- that was in or on top of the cow shit.
Anyway, I need to know the best places/locations to look for these "magic mushrooms", I've done them quite a few times but have never found my own and always wanted to. I have two books on identifying, but I am a novice. I've been to the shroomery, so don't tell me to go there, that's why I'm posting here.
I need ANY advice/tips/help that anyone can give me on finding shrooms. I live in Maryland, and there are several places around here where there are cow/horse fields. Please help!
Reason: Rules # 3. Do not ask if the current weather is "good for shrooms." These threads are flat out annoying, and will be locked. This information can easily be found with a little bit of research. As a general rule of thumb, if it has rained within the last 2-3 days, and the temperatures are correct for the type of mushroom you're looking for, then *yes* it is possible that the mushroom you are looking for is growing.
4. Do NOT ask what mushrooms can be found growing in your state or imediate area This information is easily found in the Mushroom Hunting FAQ and/or has been posted at least once elsewhere on the net.
Please do some reading. When you have a question which is not answered in the FAQ feel free to post it here.
