I'm in s.w. PA and have been hunting ginseng for about a year.
I see a lot of pictures of big 2 ft. high and bigger sang but all I ever find is under a foot.
Even found a 4 prong today but they all seem the same size. What's up with that?

Something is moving or eating the seed. Turkeys, squirrel, chipmunks, deer. I went out today and found 2 new spots with a little of everything. This one spot had about 20 plants within a square yard.

We do have a ton of deer around here maybe that's the problem. Just have to look harder.

Even if you do not dig the roots this year make sure you spend some time planting the berries. Maybe that may help sprout them before the critters get them.

I tend to think it is the ground an the area in which you found them. I've ran into a few places that always seem to have small stocks there. Now sometimes the roots were very nice tho an then other times a very small root for such a nice 4 prong.
