What a wonder, there maybe some uranium real close to that plant, or just your good luck. You should see if some University or such would be interested in those pictures.

Just a note, some of us live in areas that do not have high speed so we cannot see videos. Please post a picture or two for the isolated boys.

Guy,

Yeah - that 2\" lump with 10 stems comming out with leaves on the ends sort of makes you think something really strange happened with that plant.

Perhaps Billy was digging down around Oak Ridge TN / Clinton area when he found this one :-)

Back when I was a National Staff Shooter for High Country Archery I had a friend (another pro shooter) that went on a managed hunt there at Oak Ridge and killed a nice 12 pointer with bow/arrow, but when you leave that hunting place you have to go by a station and they scan them to see if radioactive. His nice 12 pointer was hot and all he got to take home was a few pictures.

I think that 5 & 6 prong plants are fairly common in cultivated seng and I am sure that is just the results of it being grown in the best possible conditions.

I think those Mountain areas where Billy, Maya, Chieftan and others are digging are just about as ideal as it can get for seng growing. That is why they find those huge plants with huge roots.

I don't know where my friends dad found that double decker 7 prong plant back in the 70's but I bet it was on a bluff around here somewhere or in one of those places where we have extremely rich rock chip filled, loaded wtih calcium type soil.

It is only in places like that (around here) that I find seng that even starts to look close to the plant/root quality that they are finding.

Congrats on the great find man.

Hey Billy,

I'm pretty new here. Maybe I'm out of line to say this, but I'm dying here:lol: . I can't wait to see it.

My dad grew up practically across the line in Virginia from you in Pennington Gap. They actually border Harlan Co. I have an uncle there who is the one who got me interested in Seng. He didn't dig any this year. Keeps grumbling aout how they don't want to pay you the price for it any more. I just think it's his bad knees keeping him out of the hard places.
I appreciate a forum where you can talk about your faith and not get ridiculed for it. Even over at Trapperman you can't say anything without someone having something to say. I am a Christian too, and really like how you thank the Lord for everything.

Now, after church today go see your friend, ok?:laugh:

Bill

Yes I am a member there too. I haven't been there for a while. I am a member of several sites where I hadn't used my login for a while and it no longeraccepts it for somereason, though when I try to re-register, it tells me I'm already registered.

The same with bucket of guts and Swamptalk.

I think T man got too big. Just too many people there. A lot of the old timers are just lurking now andsome have disappeared compltely because of the bashing.

Thanks for the reminder! I'll have to see about getting my user name straightened out.
