Hunting in pastures & fields
    #8801442 - 08/20/08 05:19 PM (9 years, 5 months ago)

I really really want to go hunting in a cow or horse pasture and there are TONS right by my house... I'm just very worried about it. I really can't be caught - you know? Way too much too risk. -I think- I was hoping that maybe some of you guys could help ease my mind? Some of you that have done it? I mean... what time should I go? Have any of you ever been caught? If so, what happened? I love hunting for mushrooms, but I've never been successful finding any actives - I've only ever looked in foresty areas. So I thought, after all of the hours I've searched, it would probably be worth it to search in a cow pasture - unless I'm caught. :blush:

Cow pasture are more for cubensis, especially in the south. Cubes dont grow where your at, look for actives in wood chips. Someone from that area of the US would be able to give you better info, i could answer your questions but i think you should get a response from someone who has actually hunted out there.

I live pretty close to Tillamook, which is cow country... and I've heard tons of stories about people searching and finding a lot out there. I've even seen a million cars parked on the side of the highway and people sneaking around in pastures in broad daylight!

Maybe liberty caps, they can grow in cow or sheep pastures ive read. But the majority of actives on the west coast grow in wood chips.

Yeah, I've always been worried about getting caught by the wrong people, it's a risk I'm prepared to take. I have a strategy laid out in my mind though, there's that paranoia that prevails every time :frown:

So you think I should just keep looking in foresty areas then? There's a nature park with 10 miles of pathways by my house and sometimes I go walking there and look around for them... I usually sneak off the path and try to search deeper into the forest because I seriously doubt I'd be the first to walk by an active right on the edge of the path. There are usually tons of upturned mushrooms on the path edges and obvious paths where people snuck in deeper like I do... so I know tons of people look there. Is it a good idea to try to go where no one else has been to find them? So far I haven't had any luck. Any advice or tips anyone would like to share with me would be highly highly appreciated... I've been searching for 3 years and haven't found anything.

searching tactic I found useful [Re: weiliiiiiii]
    #8809569 - 08/22/08 06:42 AM (9 years, 5 months ago)

I haven't spent much time hunting. Mostly growing. Last night was my first real outing.

Wide open fields in view of a road are too sketchy. The best setup I found was along a major interstate that had trees all along the roads. When you come to gaps in the trees, you can look for livestock in the adjacent fields. When found, you drive just a bit further where the trees begin again and park on the side of the highway. Walk into the trees as if you're taking a leak. Then climb fence and search for mushrooms while shielded from view of the highway by trees. If the landowner pursues you in the field, your getaway is through the trees and back to the car along the highway, which won't be easy for him to pursue. He'll have to go back to the house, get in car, drive on various surfaces roads to highway entrance, etc.

This worked for me in broad daylight. One last suggestion- always be aware of your surroundings. It's easy to stay focused looking at the ground, but you want to always look at the edges of the field.

That really sucks for him... now I'm going to be even extra cautious. It's so ridiculous though. I know I don't have to tell you guys, but the fact that we have to sneak around to find these little gifts from mother nature is just stupid. Why can't we have what grows naturally from our earth? :confused:

"My choice is what i chose to do;
and if I'm causin no harm,
it shouldn't bother you.
Your choice is who you chose to be;
and if your causin to harm, then your alright with me.

If you dont like my fire, then dont come around, cause I'm gona burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one, down.

Herb the gift, from the Earth,
and what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before u knock it, try it first.
and you'll see it's a blessing and it's not a curse.
If you dont like my fire, then dont come around,
cause i'm gonna burn one down.
Yes i'm gonna burn one.

oh yeah" -Ben Harper

i think he was probably joking about the jail shit.
i got caught when I was younger. it just so happened to be that the random field I went searching on out in the country belonged to a cop. I was charged with trespasing. that's it. I wasn't in possesion of anything. and this was in Texas BTW. so if you wont get in much trouble here you especially wouldnt in Oregon.

I also live in Oregon, I think  you mainly need to get out of the city because starting now and for the next couple months I can't walk out my door without discovering some fungi, maybe not the kind you're looking for, but I think it's important to be familiar with mushrooms in general before you go venturing for actives and try to identify them.

Legally you shouldn't have many troubles, except every now and again there are some cops trying to prove a point, but usually if police are an issue BE KIND!!! My best advice when dealing with cops, if you're honest, kind and don't look like a psycho you usually won't have any trouble. I suggest getting permission before sneaking into people's fields, but there are plenty of places you could slip in without being noticed, just keep an eye out!

Today is perfect. I'm on my way out, all that rain and now these bright blue skies this morning...you can feel it in the air almost, haha... good luck!

DUDE! The most potent psilo that currently exists grows in the Tillamook area. Ever heard of Azures? Fuckin A. Liberties should be plentiful in that area with all the cow pastures. Asfor the actual Portland Metro? Fuck if I know. I have never had any luck. I have spent HOURS upon hours researching different mushrooms that grow in this area. There are tons of great mushrooms that grow along the coast. I don't really know what ones are out now. Probably baeosystin(sp?) and liberties. The wood loving ones I don't think are ready. :/ Maybe I'm a douche. Anyway bro, if you find a truly legit place, would you mind letting me know? Good luck.
