TOPIC: Another Great Day in Pa...pics included + season

Re:Another Great Day in Pa...pics included + season 2 years 10 months ago #31443

Thanks guys. I have been hunting about 1000 acres that is owned by a coal company. My family sold the land to the coal company back in the 1930's. I am fortunate to have gained permission from the coal company to deer hunt and hunt sang there. The land was stripped back in the 1950's and the forest has been filling in since. The oldest root I have found so far is about 40 years old. I figure that this is when the habitat became suitable for the sang to thrive once again. I don't believe from what I've seen that anyone has harvested any ginseng on this property since it was stripped for coal. There are lots of limestone outcroppings and I believe the large calcium influence is causing some of these roots to make an ounce before they reach ten years of age. Most of my sang is coming straight out of old fly-ash and limestone slag piles. I pulled over five lbs. from the same ridge so far this year and I am easily leaving half of all the populations I come across. I definitely got lucky with this piece of land.

Yesterday's best. Came in at just over two ounces.

Well, I got my rootlets and seed from wildgrown.com in the mail yesterday. Very nice products Mr. Lee! Most all of the seeds were smiling and the 3-yr old rootlets were of very nice quality and only 15 out of 109 roots had their growth buds for next year damaged. I will most definitely be ordering more next year. As for me, I'm off to make one last stand deep in the mountains. The foothills are fried for the year. Good luck all!

This is my best of the year...about filled up a five gallon bucket bottom.
