Gourmet hunter seeks advice from pros
    #4397823 - 07/12/05 11:56 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I need to know how I can search land that is not government property. Should I ask foresters to search their land, or maybe search large abandoned owned lots, without permission. In the woods, you are alone( or so you hope :ninja:) It just sucks hunting at parks because an overlying rule is you are not allowed to pick mushrooms or plants. I think I will try to ask private landowners, or look at aerial maps to find deem-able territory and place to park for a while.

Here is what else I need to know: What other mushroom are growing wild in the south east right now that are edible, AND, how do you find large areas of wild land to search for gourmets outside of state  or county parks.

are you sure about that underlying rule at state parks flowstone? have you talked to any rangers or called anyone about it? you may be able to pick there.. i know in some places where there are a lot of commercial hunting going on they have created limits to how much you can pick but i always thought it would be just fine to pick on state grounds... thats actually where i do most of my scouting..

other then that i just walk in my or my own friends back yards.. i live in vermont and there are a lot of woods around.. i personally will cross boundaries if i walked there from a friends house.. i just dont feel like i am doing any wrong there.. i definetly will turn right around if i see any house or any sign of someone's own living space, but i feel OK just walking around in the woods... the borders are something we made up.. i feel like a being of the forest.. the deer dont ask permission to walk in the woods.. its their right, i feel similiar, as long as i am not invading someone's private space...

good luck

also to note, i am apprentecing right now with some commercial wildcrafters who make their living just picking mushrooms and plants... they do a lot of scouting on the road, as they drive the backroads.. and they always ask permission before going on people's land.. they have their own spots/beds already mapped out though, and most of the scouting work is already done.. if you do find a really nice bed of chanterelles or something that will come back every year, it would be worth it to talk to the people who own the land.. most often they will be nice, but i guess its a gamble....

There are millions of acres of forest land owned by timber companies and what not. Those are great, because the likelihood of you running into people is tiny. Just remember, you need to avoid those spots come Mid September, because Deer Murdering season starts, and you may get your ass shot. Even if you wear blaze orange, some redneck (I have a couple of cousins that fit into this category) might shoot you just because you scared off the deer he was about to kill.

You took the words right out of my mouth! fingers i mean.

I have no trouble at all finding good hunting spots. My patch for just about all the edibles i find is about 50ft. from my house. a little stretch of woods.

And to answer the question of other edibles in Georgia, get a field guide, there's too many edibles in season for me to name them all. I like the Smithsonian's handbook.

Thank you everyone who replied constructively. And yes, I'm sure you are not allowed to pick. At least from all the parks along the Chattahoochee here in GA. It may be different on federal parks, but these are state parks. I really wish I did my research on other edibles in the area before I did this massive three day chanterelle hunt, cause I know I left some other varieties behind. Literally EVERY mushroom that could be fruiting, is. And still is. It's seriously a flower shop out there :smile:
I appreciate all your advice.
