You need to be a tad careful when mushroom hunting. Do some research, Google is your friend, sites like the following: http://cabd0.tripod.com/cabsmushroompage/id20.html

You've got plenty of time as if memory serves me right the best crops are Sept/October and in the morning especially after a heavy dew or light rain.

Be careful or your head and stomach will not be your best friends.

Grow your own mushrooms you can buy the spoor in wilkos and grow it on just about anything, straw, logs etc, we grow it on straw in a polystyrene box with a lid on:thumbsup:

The best thing to do is to contact your local Wildlife Trust and see if they run trips to hunt for mushrooms, this would involve you and others going for a walk with a qualified mycologist. It's the best and safest way to do this until your knowledge is good enough to know the difference between the good and the bad ones. Sometimes to identify some species you need to go as far as looking at the spores under a microscope so you really do need good advice. An expert will be able to show you some species to look for that are not easily confused with any of the poisonous ones. Of course (as hottoshop said) the best time of year is in autumn so you've got plenty of time to organise things. Good luck!

The problem some look so alike one may taste very nice the other will not just make you ill it could KILL you. You need to be very very careful.

Symptoms of mushroom poisoning...

The Symptoms:

Amatoxins - The symptoms of amatoxin poisoning in humans are a ghoulish series of four phases, beginning with the not-too-alarming latency phase of 6-12 hours. This is followed by the gastrointestinal phase, where the human gets its first inkling that something is not quite right. The gastrointestinal phase consists of diarrhea, dehydration, vomiting and, not surprisingly, abdominal pains. The third phase begins with the patient feeling deceptively better off (another latency period) until the fourth and final phase hits. The final phase consists of the final degradation of the liver and kidney until, between the fourth and eighth day after ingestion, the patient lapses into hepatic coma combined with renal failure, ending in death. All this from a dose of 0.1 mg/kg body weight or even lower. That's not much mushroom to kill a person!
cholera-like diarrhea
dehydration
vomiting
abdominal pains
drop in coagulation factors
increase in liver enzymes (SGOT,SGPT,LDH)
hepatic failure
encephalopathy
kidney damage
DEATH due to combined liver and renal failure
Phallotoxins & Virotoxins
severe swelling of the liver
cessation of bile flow
Phallolysins
The phallolysins are labile against acids and heat, and do not contribute to human Amanita poisoning.
Ibotenic acid (and possibly its derivative, muscimol)
central nervous system depression
ataxia
hysteria
hallucinations - even worse this amino acid may drive you to drink urine.

Stick to picking strawberrys :)
