Thank's for the reply's everyone.krinec to answer your question there are animals,Cows and rabbits.It is a cow field but not the typicle kind,this is a wooded field with lots of shrubs and bushes,tall grasses,trees and very hilly.It has parts that do have short trimmed grass but not alot.It is a very natural field,unlike most cow pastures that are just grass and usually kept trimmed by the the cows.There are only a few cattle that roam these fields and the surrounding woods and alot of rabbits,If I find rabbit droppings I usually find semi's right next to them.It's not the easiest place to search but it sure is one of my favorite spots.

Yup,,,Eastern Canada,,,Well Subbalteatus the season got off to a slow start,around the middle of october we got our first frost.I dont even bother going out untill after a good frost.The temps from then till now have varied quite a bit,from -1 in the morning to +18 one day.But its been consistantly cool,it been raining,lots of humidity,A few frosts.A mix of sun and cloud.So far it has been a pretty good cycle of weather,but I am afraid winter is fast approaching.Will be out in the field every moment of free time I have from now until the snow falls.And to answer you other question yes,they are very common here.Psilocybe semilanceata can be found all throughout the Maritime provences,Also it is not usually mentioned but it also does grow as far as Ontario,Although this is very rare and only near the great lakes.With that being said,I would say it is so rare that its not worth looking for there.

So the weekend is here,Free time to go to the field and mushroom hunt.I got into the field a little after 6this morning,the sun was just comming up over the ocean.We had a nice frost last week and the two following days had lows of two and three.I was in the field before the rain hit today,but the funny thing is..is that I was there for an hour plus before the rain hit and had only found around 6-8 mushrooms,was kind of discouraged,,,then the rain hit,,,and all of a sudden I started finding them,196 in total today.It was a little hard to take pictures today with the wind the rain and the spray from the ocean,but I managed to get quite a few regardless.

A few more pics from today.And boomer_bumper to answer your question it happens with age,they open up,and laying flat on the grass helps alot as well im sure.I dont find too many that get fully opened but it does happen.And they are usually flat on the ground when I do.It is usually the bell shaped ones I have noticed that tend to open up like that....Here is a description of Liberty Caps....Caps are up to 2cm acreoo,narrowly conical to bell-shaped, with a sharply pointed knob,sticky,chesnut-brown to yellow-brown,and darker at the apex, often fading at the margin.Gills are attached and pale brown,becoming blackish-brown.Stalks are up to 8cm tall,slender,and white to pale tan.Spore print is pruple-brown.Widespread,

hi names jon kinda new to site but i also found a field where yesterday i got like 200 liberty caps, sadly i dont have a camera so i cant take pics but i was just wonderin when the best time i should go back to that field and if its a guarantee that if you found them in a particular field if more will grow in the same field. Because the field is far from my house dont want to waste a trip out there. Any feedback helps, thanks

Well happyjon7017,you could go back the very next day and chances are you would find some,However,I usually like to give it a few day's in between trips.Even a week.This is just so the mature mushrooms have a chance to drop spores,and the pins have a chance to grow.Also weather plays a big part on if I go or not,if it rains two days in a row and are expecting sun on the 3rd,I would go out on the fourth,rain or shine.If you know your getting a frost that morning,Its a good day to go.You really just dont want to go out if you have had a dry period or prolonged high temps.Anything from -2 to +15 is fair game.But even on the days where temps reach +15 , +16 etc you can still find them,but they rather the colder temps.Just remember if you have a spot where your getting them,just think about letting it recover a bit so it will be there in the future.I also dont pick every mushroom I see,If I find a patch of say 15,leave one or two there to drop its spores.And most of all keep it secret,tell no one.It sounds harsh but its true,I have seen to many fields being sprayd because of the amount of people that know about them.It sucks real bad when you find out one of your favorite fields has been sprayd with fungicide.

Well I have the week off work so I went out to the field today.The weather has not been the greatest the past few day's,Its been VERY wet and warm.But,,,since I have the time off,,set my clock and got out of bed I went anyway.I did not get in the field until 9am,a little later than usual but better late then never.Today has been the hardest search of the season,everything was wet,dark and droopy.Managed to find a few today.137.This field does not push out very large number's at once,but it does consistantly have mushroom's which is nice.I have managed to save up quite a few now.Enough to last myself and a few friends the winter month's.So here are the pic's from today's very wet hunt.
