Semilanceata in full bloom in Western WA! "NEW PICS"
    #4748921 - 10/03/05 01:16 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Well they're here! About a month later than last year but the Libs Have arrived. I found the first ones on or about 28 Sept. They had grown in a pretty dry pasture and were a result of pretty heavy morning fog and heavy dew. Once these recent rains kicked in BOOOOM! feast your eyes on these nice finds.







I tried my hand at a little nite time photography but they didn't come out as nice IMO


Well I have many many more photos but I've got to wait another 23 hours until I can upload them.
For all those searching for the elusive Libs my advice is to check the perimeters of pastures. Definitely pastures that border forest. Look in the interface area between pasture and forest in the shadow, and there you will find the ""sweet spot"".

MOST IMPORTANTLY BOYS AND GIRLS! DO NOT FORGET!
Please respect Farmer John's property, don't destroy fragile habitat, leave no trace that you are, have been, or ever will be there picking shrooms.
good luck and happy hunting. :crazy2:

I often hunt for semis in the dark. During the day Farmer John can see you out in his pasture. I like to use one of the new LED head lamps and go out in the middle of the nite when he is sleeping. My experience has been good so far. The LED lite does not travel as far and you direct it at the ground. It works well. Cops are less likely to pursue out into a dark pasture. I like it.

"Cops are less likely to pursue out into a dark pasture." ?????? 

You're RIGHT!  They will sit in their car eating donuts until the dog unit arrives.  Then they will send the dog in to pull you out by your leg! :crazy:

well.. during the time that they sit eating donuts, you can usually manage to get the fuck out of there.

Hey I cant speak for the cops in your neck of the woods. All I was saying is that it is an option for me. I do about 50% of my Lib picking in the dark. It works for me. If you dont want to do it, Thats great! Your one less picker I have to compete with. :grin:

haha picking semi's in the dark would be an adventure for sure. I dont get out to the fields much anymore but I can remember my fear of cows. I remember 1 time i was just picking away head 1 ft from the ground and felt an odd feeling, looked up at cow standing right next to me...fucking cows. Be careful out in the fields seriously tho, anything can happen, angry homeowners, fiendish mexican kids, and god forbid cops. Ive delt with them all and perhaps picking at night is a better option than my current one which is to just not pick libs in pastures. Great pics IceHouseShaman

Anyone have pics of the actual fields they hunt in? Im having trouble finding the right field/pasture for semi's, even tho i've been told im in a very good area for them.

Do you guys hunt in actual pastures? Which kind, cow, horse, llama?

How tall does the grass need to be?

cow pastures 4 sure. Rite now I would look in pastures with a higher elevation. Higher elevation generally means lower dew point which means they have been getting moisture longer. Look along the northern edge of a tree line that borders a pasture. in other words find a pasture area that is covered by shadow most of the day. There U will find the sweet spot!
