Problems with hunting in pastures
    #985965 - 10/23/02 09:50 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, a friend and I have been reading up on how to identify magic mushrooms, and decided to go pick some (just to pick, not to eat, until verified). Here are a few questions we would appreciate anyone answering.

1. We have been exploring many different GRAIN FED cow pastures in SouthEast Missouri, in search of magic mushrooms. However, among all the cows, we have discovered no mushrooms. We start the hunts before sun up, where the temperature is between 42-48 degrees. We usually get rain at least 3 times a month. We have searched fresh and old patties, inside and out with no results. Any ideas of why there arent any shrooms to be found?

2. How long does it take for magic mushrooms to develop on cow dung?

3. Does it matter what kind of cow or how fresh the dung is or what type of grain is fed?

4. Could the temperature be effecting the mushrooms growth?

I know these questions are kind of lengthy, but help a beginner out! I appreciate it, and thanks for your time.

Yes, temps play a big role in the growth of mushrooms. Typicaly the growth will start to slow down once it hits the 50s at night, although some mushrooms like it. It all really depends on which mushroom you're looking for. If you're looking for cubensis, then yes, temps in the 40s will slow them down.

To answer another question, no it doesn't matter what kind of grain/food cows are fed, cow dung= cow dung. Presense of salt licks doesn't matter either. There are a lot of rumors surrounding fields/food/dung and pretty much none of them are true.

As far as how fresh the dung is... well, they're not going to be growing from day old manure, it takes time for the mycelium to colonize the manure... I've got no proof of this, but my guess is that dung with fruits on it is probably anywehre from 1-3 weeks old.

Yeah I'm pretty sure GumbyDude meant that anywhere from 1-3 weeks on out may produce.  Not that only pies that old produce. :wink:
