Second flush of cyans coming up this morning. Get out there!

There's quite a few if you know where to look. Take your time and look in the deep grass as well. :wink:

Big cap that's for sure, 60+ gram mushroom. For some reason in low light conditions my smart phone camera goes purple. I took my DSLR out yesterday.

Went out again today, it's probably the last time i'll go out for a while. All the mushrooms I picked in the last three days, I got without even entering a private property. In area's where there is little traffic, farmers will let their cows out to graze beside the roads. It's a good little tip to remember if you don't want any confrontations. I only had two locals stop. One wanted to trade some RID for mushrooms (???) and the other thought I had broken down and was seeing if i needed any help.

Cubes on the left, Pans on the right. The cubes were the second flush from the same cow pat I found the last monster Cube. I must say it was nice to see some clean Cubes after so many dirty looking Pans.

I came down from one of the gc hinterland mountains yesterday after a lot of rain and saw some really good looking patches of both pans and cubes, unfortunately had my family in the car and couldn't stop...

Rain = mushrooms. Cubes are on the up, but there is still heaps of pans. Enjoy the showery weather! :)

Anybody have experience mushroom hunting in far north Queensland? In particular, Australia's wettest town? I've kept my eyes peeled these past few days after all this rain we've had, but am yet to find any types of fungi in the form of mushrooms. We have plenty of rain and very high humidity for most of the year, but I'm thinking the temperature is maybe a little too high? Or maybe I'm not looking properly.

I have found little information online about mushroom hunting in this part of Queensland, so maybe someone here can shed some light on it.

Would love to hear anyone else's thoughts and feedback.

First day back at work and I'm seeing heaps of Pans. I'm not even checking the entire field. Only the immediate area I'm working in.

Around Atkinson Dam, for anyone in the area.

Not after they are dried out RC. :)

There have been sooo many, its making wonder why I had so much trouble finding them in previous years. Atkinson is probably the best dam around to swim in. The entire area is river sand. I hate swimming in mud holes.

You want paddocks where cows have been grazing in the past. The pats need a chance to dry out and there has to be fairly long grass or tufts of long grass. Go after some good rain and be persistent you will find them. I first went picking seven years ago, the first time I ever found anything was in March last year and now I see them everywhere.

I don't know the area but after having a quick look on google maps, I would start somewhere like this. I've found Pans love shady area's as well, which is good because cows love to camp under large trees.

This is where I was today. If you notice the old stock yard. This is prime mushroom landscape. They were literally 2 meters in from the fence. There were a bunch in the paddock over the bridge too.

Lots of pans and 4 cubes today... I think they find you iatd, once it has been experienced they suck you in like a magnet when foraging.

Yeah the cubes are coming on slow, but the pans are still doing their thing.

I certainly agree that once you find them, they will find you. :wink:
