and just wanted to let yall know i really enjoy yalls posts ... i never knew ginseng got so big til i came to this site ... im shocked ... ive found some big roots over the years but very rare in this area ... and never plants the size ive seen on here ... im just a good ole boy that enjoys getting out in the woods to pass the time .... seems like many of you are REALLY into digging root and know your stuff ... im hoping to learn as much as i can on here and maybe make a few friends ... when im not digging root im trapping, hunting, fishing, mushrooming, shed hunting, along with other outdoor activities ... good luck to yall and will be waiting to see the reports !!
Billy, 2 years ago I found well over a thousand of them. Best year I'd ever seen. Picked over 500 off this one hillside. This past spring wasn't nearly as good, but found some of the bigger ones I've ever found (several 8-9 inches high) Your right those sure are good. I flour mine then fry them in real butter. Got to stop my mouth is watering!
i find 1000+ morels most years ... and pick a wide variety of edible shrooms all year long ... 50 or so different types ... some good ones should be coming up as soon as we get a good rain ... found some edibles yesterday ... but left them as i was looking for \"sang\"
im from virginia i sell morels every year and usually make more a year selling them than i do selling ginseng go out mushroom hunting for the day and usually find 8 or 900 a day in a good year good spot
i look for goldenseal every time i go out ginseng hunting and never seem to find any not sure if it doesnt grow around here or what the deal is im not interested in digging it due to the low price but would just like to see it
