If a permit was required in Kentucky,there wouldn't be near as much poaching because there would be enforcement one can hope.Guess they figured getting on tv was easier.

I thought I heard the one guy say he's from Kentucky, and you have to buy a $25 permit to dig, and the state only allows a person to dig 1 pound per year. And that was why he went to WV so he could dig more root.

Is that true? I never heard that law, although I'm not from KY so I have no idea.


No bag limits under KY on legal ginseng harvest of private property. Of course, one should follow trespassing and theft laws and seek permission.

As for public property, one would need to obtain permission, also. The only public lands I know that you can obtain \"permission\" would be the Daniel Boone National Forest, via a permit, with a fee, and harvest limit; also this ginseng would be for personal use only, not commercially. DBNF also restricts harvest season narrower than for the state as a whole.

Important Dates
Harvesting Season: September 1 - December 1

Buying Season:
Green Starts September 1
Dry Starts September 15 - March 31
April 15 - deadline for certifying previous fall harvest

Thanks for the info. I guess the statement in the show was actually kinda true then, not a flat out lie.

PAbilly,
You're right, he did call Virginia Creeper 5 leaf poison ivy, but... here in the South I have heard it called poison ivy for years and years. I think it is more of a misnomer rather than downright ignorance. When you hear something called a name from your youth onward, you just kind of get a handle that sounds right, but you're correct.

I was going to say the same thing. I've never rubbed it on my arm before, does Virginia Creeper cause any rash or itching?

being quite sensitive to poison ivy all my life, I've never known Virginia creeper to be a problem but never messed around with it to much. You would think that if they are going to associate another plant with a plant as well known as poison ivy is it would be somewhat itch causing you would think..
