it amazes me that people would pic a mushroom hey aren't sure of and ask advice on the internet,,, I have a friend that's a vet and he tells me during the early spring, 3-8 dogs a week in his practice die from ingesting poisonous mushrooms and develop quick organ failure. Should you not do your own research on something this dangerous rather than risk bad info or maybe a misinterpretation due to a bad picture? Jeeez guys... ? Just my opinion.....
And a good opinion!!!! I'll tell u can never read and research enough. My mushroom book library has grown a great deal since I have started shrooming. Two years ago I was in the woods and stumbled across a family picking in the woods. As our conversation continued I soon realized they had no clue what they were picking. The only thing they knew is their friend said the red ones were good to eat. Well now I just had to look in their bag, and wow what I seem was not good. All I will say is in my eyes I save their arses big time . DON'T EVER TAKE SOMEONE'S ADVICE find out for yourself. If u are not 100% don't even think of it. Research, Research and more Research!!!!
I'd like to ask a question Mr FungiStalker.. I read all your posts... I'm in a town just north of you beginning with an "R" and just south of a bigger town beginning in "S". I'm reviving a hunting tradition my dad started years ago before he passed on. Can you give me some idea where I can't legally hunt? Im not gonna ask your honeyholes.. but I don't care to go to prison for mushrooms... Forest Preserves are illegal but how about following some of the larger DP river tributaries? Its hard to surmise where Dewey Pierotti land starts and ends as it seems all woods are Forest Preserve? Any tips would be appreciated....other than the ones you provided above.
Tell u the truth du page is tough to hunt. I usually don't!! I'll be starting my outings south of I- 80 coal city , Kankakee and a couple others. And than southern cook county also and I work north. Thinking of doing a Pieoria road trip also.
You should all be ashamed of yourselves! You are all jerks. mrnot came here to ask for your help; he is obviously a first time user and very inexperienced. So what do you do? You jump down his throat. You all act like you are the friggin mushroom god or something...like you know everything. I bet the dude doesn't come back here for help. In fact your actions may have contributed to his future poisoning because he is afraid to ask for help for fear of being treated like an idiot. Teach don't scold and quit acting like you are the authority.
Trust me broadleef stupid people dont bother me at all. Everyone gets internet muscles. I would love to upload some pics of what I found the other day. The biggest morels I have ever seen or found. Some were the size of softballs.
Your an idiot....I just wanted to make sure that the big red ones are what people talk about. Sorry I have never found one...! But I have been finding very large morels...and yes one was as big as a softball...
@shroomhead, that's pretty close to softball size so there's your sign. Guess it's safe to say you've never found any close to that size or you wouldn't have mocked him. As for asking about eating the red ones, what is so funny or dumb about that? Seems like your claiming that you were born with limitless knowledge on fungus. And by the way, if asking a question in this forum is funny or dumb then here's your sign for the obviously researchable info you was just asking for. If you don't won't to teach/advise/share knowledge or whatever that's fine but don't belittle someone for asking a question. Hope you don't have anyone that looks up to you that ask questions.
