What should I say if I get caught in the field???
    #738635 - 07/11/02 09:31 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Well I live in Florida so I am really not concerned with the having freshly picked mushrooms on me (since they are legal). But what if I get caught out in the field? Of course I would throw the shrooms if I ever saw any law enforcement in the field and try running if they were far enough away. But if they do happen to nag me what would be a good excuse to use?? My plan right now would to tell them I was depressed and needed some fresh air or something. Or maybe I was doing a homework assignment or something. Or if I was with other people I would tell them i'm a weirdo who loves getting it on in the woods (and if there was only guys I'd tell them I was gay or something). Or maybe I would tell them I was kidnapped by aliens and woke up in the woods with no pants on and was analy probed and abused (lol). Anyways, what's a good excuse to use so that I could try to get away from a trespassing charge??? Thanks...

Top ten excuses for being in a field:

10. I wanted to see a hamburger in its natural habitat
9. I couldnt get out becasue of the barbed wire fence
8. I was sleep walking
7. I was framed
6. You cant like own a field man...
5. I fell out of my plane
4. MMMOOOOOOO....
3. I thought the sign said welcome
2. This isnt my house?
1. God told me to do it

Mr. Mushroom says,
and I quote, This land is your land , this land is my land, from the Redwood forest to the New York Islands....."

Thats why I like to collect mushrooms in India and Thailand and Ca,mbodia. There re no fences and the cwhole country is one large giant cattle and water buffalo pasture.

What is really nice is that when the Thai or Hindi farmers or even the muslim cattle tenders and rice paddie workers upon seeing someone intheir field, often come over to asked what you need or like or even sometimes will invite you, the stranger, into their home and share with you the little that they do not have.

Quite a contrast to the attitudes of American and European landowners who would shoot someone trespassing on their properties.

Look at this picture of the buffalo and imagine how many mushrooms appear during and after the buffalo fights. It is really nice to live where there are no fences.



And for any others here is another Pink Buffalo image.

Yes, I love the photography excuse. Tell them you are taking a photography class and your teacher wanted you to get some landscape pictures, and ask if they mind.

Buy some thick glasses, put your front teeth out like a chinese and act like a nerd, then say your favorite excuse. Instead having a field full of mushroom hunters you'll have a field full of nerds, i can see the picture already, lol .

If i ever get caught on someones land. . .

"Im here from Mycology Australia pertaining to research in regards to a deadly fungi which may be taking over the area" (this gives you the chance to old forward your bag of mushies and carefully remove one with a tissue and show them the dangerous specimen)

not many farmers around here go picking mushies!

No, but they all have to deal with kids f*king up everything, tearing down fences, abusing livestock, littering,stealing... the list goes on, I'm sure. And they know what they are there for, they see 'em regularly.
Also, if the landowner calls the cops, LEO's will locate and watch you until you are done. There is a user here (I won't disclose his s/n) who was chased after they watched him. He ran, dumped his bag, got caught and faced charges. This was in Fl and I am not certain of the outcome.
Maybe he will chime in.
Something to think about. I do, so that the area that I live, I have not been motivated to tresspass into a field yet. Instead, this weekend I plan to knock on a few doors and ask permission, it is unlikely (it seems the local farmers have had alot of problems in the past), but maybe I will get some respect just for asking first. :shrug:
*Also, this past weekend, I spotted a dog in the field, it might be even worse to run into him. I would hate to run into LEO on my way out.

i had a mate who got caught, he started going on about mushrooms (non active/active) and how amazed he is by them, when he was due to show in court, the judge dis regarded the case as they had no proof that the mushrooms were for comsumption. . . .

You could:

Carry a gas can and fill it with your produce. If caught say your car ran out of gas and you are hoofing it to a station.

or

Ask a farmer if you can have some manure. Just go out and fill a tub with some poop. Throw the produce in the bottom. Oh you want to search my tub full of manure officer? ok reach on in there heh heh

Carry a Digital SLR and a 180mm macro lens.  I got questioned once, and told them I was a photographer.  It worked for them. :smile:

Ask the farmer/landowner for permission to look in the field?  Then you wouldn't have to worry about it  :shocked:

Show them a mushroom field guide and have a basket/bag with you and tell them your hobby is local plants/mushrooms and you'd like to look around.  :thumbup:
