I'm going to be making a 3 day trip up to Pennsylvania soon...

the place im visiting is completely rural, farms everywhere and cow pastures galore.

what do you think my chances are of finding some nice shrooms? I remember seeing mycelium growth on cow shit at a younger age up there so i am kind of optimistic.

any suggestions/input/experience? if anyone from pennsylvania has anything to say, I would really appreciate it. also, if there are strains that are most commonly found in Pennsylvania, let me know

i still want to be careful though. are there any mushroom identification books anyone would recommend i buy from a bookstore like Barnes and Nobles or Waldenbooks?

I wouldn't advise eating wild mushrooms. It's risky business, and if you screw up and eat the wrong kind it could kill you. If you want some shrooms you should just order a spore syringe and grow them yourself. It's easy and only costs about $20 to get started.

i live in Pennsylvainia and where i camp theres a cow pasture directly beside it so this past weekend we decided to see if they were grain fed...and they were and we walked threw about 7:00am and we found the first one in the direct sun all dried out and it was about the size of a 10 sent coin...then we found a bunch more much bigger ones...we dried them out and me and a freinds split the tiny one in half and ate it...10 minutes later we started to trip...they were the best shrooms i have ever had just i got sick yesterday from it...the way to tell is makes sure they are directly in the cow shit and they should be a tanish collor on the top of the cap and should be darker towards the middle...and remember DONT EAT IT UNLESS IT IS ONTOP OF COW SHIT...haha wouldent wanna die from a stupid little mushroom...one more thing, remember "Bright is not right."

That's fuxed up, I thought they's be really potent like most Pans. You probs ate it's barely active twin.

Tdubbz34, use this guide:
http://www.shroomery...us-subbalteatus
With this shroom even if you found it's one really similar look alike and ate it, you'd be fine. Maybe some discomfort from digesting the mushrooms tissue. Also it's a really common mushie.


As a precaution or whatever go to http://www.shroomery...ist.php/Board/3 and post pics and let the real pro hunters and mycologists to identify for you.

Psilocybe ovoideocystidiata is common in the Ohio river valley. Often found in the woody debris of overflow areas, along rivers and streams, rarely in man-made mulch. They are most common from April to mid June but they occasionally fruit as late as November.
