Nice trapper!, looks like you scored some old long necks there. I've got some seng hangin in there as well, but this week is suppose to be mostly hot and dry just like last. I'll hopefully get in there a time or two and score a few more before she's all done for the season. Love the pics keep em coming, and be safe out there!
Thanks 44! Yeah I got some old stuff. I love it when they have long necks and a bulb at the end. Lol We've had that hot and dry weather here now for the last 8 days or so. It's supposed to break on Thursday and be in the low 70s. Even calling for 68 on Saturday. Perfect Sengin weather. Good luck on getting back out and I hope you get a couple sack full!
its been done here for at least week now...iam waiting on 6 roots to finish drying then all mine will be dry...looks like I will have just a little over 4 lb. of dry....it was a real short season here but I still had a bunch of fun.....
Trapper your digging some nice sang this year. I can't believe how good the sang where your at still looks. If you don't mind me asking. What part of the country are you from? Our sang around here got pretty burned up almost 2 weeks ago. Was a real short season this year
Thats a very good season! It's been a long time since I've dug any at all. Im thinking I've got close to 2 lb when it gets dried out. I've dug 98.7 oz green. I remember it used to be 3-3.5 to 1? Does that sound right?
WOW... great pics and beautiful seng. Love those long necks.
Noticed you are finding some seng with pine needles around them... I have done that too in the past.
In my case the timber had been clear cut and planted in pines... and the pine trees were 12 years old when I found the seng under them...
Some of the seng I dug was 30+ years old... so that just shows you how determined seng is to survive. I am sure some of the younger plants in that area did not survive the clear cutting and time it took the young pines to provide shade... but some of the older established seng sure did survive.
On the dry ratio... I checked that on mine a couple years ago and it was right at 3.5 to 1.
