TOPIC: my first hunt!

my first hunt! 14 years 10 months ago #1829

Well folks I just got bit by th seng bug this summer. I inherited the family farm and it has about 60 acres of old timber. The forest floor is covered in rattle snake ferns and I have an abundance of hardwoods. My fiance and I are going on our first hunt this fall and I wanted any pointers you old timers or legacies have to offer a green horn like me. Especially on when do the berries turn red here in north west GA, and just what in the world do I do with the roots once I have them. Any nuggets of wisdom are much appreciated.

First of all, welcome to the board. Secondly, good luck in your seng hunting. I do not know the growing schedule for Georgia but, someone else will chime in who is familiar with it, I am sure. Is the family farm ground posted to keep others out?

Don't get discouraged if you don't find tons of seng. I have some growing on my place but, not great amounts. Just knowing it will grow here has been an encouragement and I have planted some each year the last three/ four years. Some of my first plantings have actually started to produce a few seeds this year. I am excited about it. But, if you do find lots, good for you and have fun. Keep us posted.
