The farther you go into the woods the less magic mushrooms you will ever find.

In clear cuts you can pick many P. pelliculosa and P. silvatica's es[ecially where the alder starts to regrow after the conifers have been logged out. But if youstep ten feet into the forest they disappear.

Schultes suggested that shrooms could grow in deer excretement as well as in Kangaroo excretememt.

And I have read a paper on Panaeolus alcidis from Alaska which was originally discovered on deet shit.

But then that is not hallucinogenic.

Well, I have never seen mushrooms in deer dung. But, a few time, while looking in horse field, I have seen Pan papilionaceus growing out of the both the horse dung and Elk dung. Considering, these wild elk share the field with the horses, eating the same food as the horse, I don?t think the mushroom cares what it grows off of.
Note, I have also seen deer dung piles completely colonized by some sort of fungus, while on hikes in the forest.

Stamets refered to something called he Ps. Washingtonensis which he asserted was found often enough in deer shit.

Isn't that cool... that our active mushroom friends are really ussually found at the Human Interface with the natural world. I take this as a serious indication of design by the universe at large.
