Other Mushrooms: lots of toad stool and even on patch of psilocybin
General Information: Walking thru marshland following the deer that I hunt to the mushroom patches. Look for ground that is not under water. I am getting 10-15 lbs per patch. It is a really good year, the soil is perfect with lots of mycelium throughout. This looks like cottony spiderwebs in the soil. So, if you do not mind a few leeches on you go and get them. All the mushrooms that most find in the woods are flukes so to speak.
