In the last pic, that shroom looks like it was heaven sent from the mushroom god!
And light shined all around as the clouds opened up to heaven, and there in the
paster a mystic hand clutched the holy shroom! On your knees! Any hooooo, looks
like a good hunt. Latra, catch you on the flipdy, flip flop! Ok to much cheese!

Yep, the season has started!

We found the first libertycaps last week. Not many, but it's a start.
And with all the rain of the last few days, very soon they will be all over!

Nice pics Kaal-kopje. Which part of the Netherlands did you find them (general location, no specifics)?

Its really rainy here this week so i'm allready looking forward to next weekend's picking. Last week we had little time and could only hunt & pick for 2 hrs or so but still got a nice amount for all to enjoy coming winter  :grin:
I will post some more pictures if the shroom gods are with me again next hunt.

For the dutch around here: Pictures were taken in Friesland. Where do you guys find them?

We found ours in the Betuwe actualy near Tiel.

In a field that has not seen much vertiliser and looks a bit 'scruffy'. I will post a pic of the habitat soon.

Here's a pic of a couple we found last year in the same field. Pre Euro time, hence the quarter. (Ah, the good old days...)


Wet and dry...


Nice nipples... (on the right hand side some more are hiding)

We'll go hunting again on thursday, if the wheather is nice I will take some pics and post them in this thread.

Good to see some fellow Dutch folks hunting for shrooms.
Has anybody found some wild, non cultivated Cyanscens in the Netherlands?
They seem to be pretty rare. Although a few years back a friend of ours has found a few in his mothers front garden.
Other from that find, no one in our group has found them again. Has anybody been more lucky?

Anyway:
Happy hunting everyone! I love the autumn.

I haven't really found any yet... well, maybe I didn't looklong enough.
I don't know if there are wils P.cyanescens in the netherlands. But there are soon wild P. Azurescens :wink: because I put some mycelium in the forest next to my door, hope the spores will be spreading through the whole Netherlands when they pin :grin:

But here they are:



The habitat they were growing in.

A group of Semi's, hope you can see them...

These were aready getting a bit old and dry.

So it will be a good weekend!

Happy hunting everyone!

Kreation:

Finding a good field is more luck than wisdom (dutch proberb, don't know if it translates very well??).
This field was grased by cows in the last 20 year up to five years ago.
Since then some horces and sheep have grased there.
What I look for are 'scruffy' fields that haven't been resown in a long while.
You know a lot of differnt kinds of grasses.
And it's seems they dont like chemical fertilisers or the liquid manure we call 'gier'.
So neglected, patchy, grased field are your best bed.

And as said before: the most important things you need is a lot of luck and patience.
I've searched in many fileds thet looked perfect for findnig Semi's.
But non were found....

Maby I can make some more habitat pics next week.

So, I hope this helps. And:

Happy Hunting everyone!

Do libs only come up in fields that have been grazed by cattle/sheep/horses? I have been looking alot in a cattle field and have found nothing. I am, however, in upstate NY. I've never found any here, but this is my first season looking for libs. I really hope to find some but I don't think I will. :frown: Do they come up in fields that havent been grazed by animals?

A friend found about 200 lib's in Southwest Washington on 10/24, so they are there you just have to look in the areas that remain shaded for most of the day. Those areas seem to retain enough dew that fruits are able to form, any shrooms that got 2-3 hours of sun had dried out. These lib's were very strong, a 2 gram dose was a sufficient dose.

Last 3 days it has been very stormy here but we went for a little hunt yesterday anyway. :crazy: My favorite field was flooded with rain and the grass was flatted down by the very strong winds. Lots of the shrooms had been severely damaged. Their  caps and or stems were broken or they had disapeared under water  :frown: They were also very hard to find because the taller grass was so matted.

Luckily we still found a few decent ones , below are some pictures of the finds of this cold and wet expedition..



The sun shined for a few min and we found this nice specimen.


They can grow pretty large  :grin:


Another 2 big ones.


I'm sorry the pic quality isn't much to look at but i just wanted to show them.
They also seem to be very potent, as little as 15 normal sized ones get you goin. :tongue:

Good hunts!
