I love to hunt for murels in the spring,I don't find many, but I do love it. Does anyone else do the same? Have you had much luck?

My friends and myself used to traditionally hunt wild mushrooms, every August/September. However, one can only pass through the doorways of perception so many times. Also, the British government seems to send out professional 'magic mushroom' hunters, as they seemed to be growing in childrens play areas, so now you have to travel out into the country, which might make finding your way home a little tricky, especially if you take to snacking on your finds as you progress! Now I'm too old for that kind of thing, so nothing stranger or atronger than a button mushroom passes my lips.

I would like to but I am too afraid of picking something that is poisinous. So many of them look alike, I wouldn' trust myself.

About 12 year ago we lived in Kansas. While there my son took an interest in hunting oyster mushrooms and from there he progressed to the murels because they were easy to identify. We lived near Lake Milford at the time. I got to know the lake pretty well hunting those mushrooms. We were quit successful to. It was great fun trapsing through the woods and brambles. He would lead us down paths that you were not sure that it was a path. I'm not at all able to do anything like that any more but it was great fun and I would do it again if I could. You haven't lived until youv'e gone mushroom hunting.
