Lol I'd say he was. I would've broke that for sure. The guy that bought it laid a tape measure by it and it was 15". Not fully stretched out either! Unbelievable

Thanks 44. Yeah still 85% green here. I believe the record is 180 years old on ginseng. I'd say this one beats that!

Here's the pic the buyer posted with the tape measure on that root. Absolutely incredible!

That is just crazy!, I hope it doesn't break. I framed a root one time and gave it to a friend of mine over the holidays one year. This would be a cool one to save and frame. Very unique!

I went for a while after work yesterday eve and dug 7oz. It was warm and the skeeters were as bad as I've ever seen. Literally swarming me and biting at will. Lol

I'm starting to see more dying Seng every trip. It seems they are either green or stems, not much in between. I love that yellow phase before it dies out but only seeing a few yellow.

Good Luck fellas!

Nice to see you guys are getting a little action in despite the heat and bugs. Fall is taking it's sweet time getting here this year that's for sure. I guess in a way that's good, but it does make for some miserable conditions to seng in. I won't be back in the woods till the 13th. Bear season starts this saturday and runs through the 12th. I don't want to be in there while they're chasing bears back and forth. I hope you guys get some better conditions soon, and some good time in the woods!

Thanks 44! I hope there's plenty of Seng still up by the time you get back to it. I'm sure how this heat will affect it this time of year. The ground is still saturated from all the rain we've had so that might help keep it standing a while longer despite the heat. Take care, bud

I've been out a few times since I've been on here. Digging some but not a lot. Those 3 pics total 14.25 oz. I'm taking off Friday because it's suppose to be 58 degrees here!
This will probably be the last weekend. It's dying out quickly around here. I hope you fellas are doing well!
