Califorina silly...
    #614840 - 04/21/02 05:32 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Hey folks,
I do most of my hunting along the pacific northwest (Highway 1).
My active range is from around Monterey/Big Sur to South of Eureka. (around Salt Point, Cruz Rodedendron Reserve.. perhaps even further North if its worth my time)

Can anyone give me tips for the present hunting conditions, or is it too late?
And can anyone give me tips for Fall, around October/November?

I've been out hunting the last 2 weekends in a row, and have found next to nothing in most areas, save a good couple pounds of yellow foot shantrels..

please advise for fall espicially!
thanks!

Well what I have gathered .... (I am just a beginner myself)
Panaeolus subbalteatus
Psilocybe stuntzii Guzm?n & Ott. (Guzm?n, 1983).
Psilocybe azurescens Stamets Gartz. (Stamets, 1996). (Introduced).
Psilocybe cyanescens Wakefield. (Guzm?n, 1983).
Psilocybe pelliculosa (Smith) SInger & Smith. (Guzm?n, 1983).
Psilocybe semilanceata Fr.)
Kummer. Psilocybe stuntzii Guzm?n & Ott. (Guzm?n, 1983).

=============
Right now the stunzii's are probably the most common find in grasses. Cyaanescens are found up near Eureka and Humbolt. I hear Humbolt is great for picking.
The Pan Subbs will be in horse stables or maybe some cow pastures!

Great, thanks for the info~!
Unlikely to find any P. Cubensis on the Coast?

Is there a place I should definatly not pass up next coming fall?
Last fall was very unsuccessful where I live, but myself and some friends were able to find about 10 wet lbs of Gyms at "College of the Redwoods" which is just south of Eureka, on Highway 101. the Gyms were past their prime, and rotting heavily.. the tinxture we attempted was fruitless. sigh!

Yeah,
You're not goingt ot find Cubensis outside the subtropical environments of the gulf coast states...
You are in pretty good territory though. I would reccomend looking for Liberty Caps in pastures whiere cows (and to a lesser extent- horses) graze -- Or if you're in urban settings, You might find Cyanescens and Stunzii in well tended gardens and parks... they grow as far south as the Bay area in early winter.

This time of year you're pretty much screwed - south of Eugene.
TOo warm. But fall should provide for you./.
Just in time for you to get a good book and study up on the subject!
{And to buy our video when we release it.}

till then, look up some pictures in the photo section here are the shroomery.

From one our releases:

...From the ?Shroom Hunter? video course - a multi part curiculum of mushroom hunting ins and outs...
...Shroom Hunter, 101 is the first class in this series - an introduction to the wonderful world of mushroom hunting - It?s for beginners, concerned with the process of collecting mushrooms and making observations - A mushroom hunting primer, covering what to look for, and the basic language of a mushroom?s structure, lifecycle, and basic natural tendencies.


From the packaging:
"Shroom Hunting 101:
?Locating and Identifying Gilled Mushrooms.?
Prerequisite: A Modicum of intelligence.
Long title... yes. But a good one.
This is the first part in a series of coming productions, designed as a user-friendly video course. The first half of this program is a straight-forward informational presentation, focusing on basic mushroom hunting techniques macroscopic identification - and the second part is presented as a 'Lab' study, where the video takes you out into the field to locate and identify a specific group of mushrooms:
The temperate, urban-dwelling members of the mushroom genus PSILOCYBE.

The information presented is designed to educate a potential mushroom picker, especially those brand new to the process, what, when and how to look for these ubiquitous little fungi, and ultimately how to identify them to their appropriate Genus.


I was supposed to release it two days ago!!!
I wanted some animations though, and they were not completed in time... so I've pushed it a month-

May 20
