ya North American botanicals qouted me $400, I think it's going higher, hang on if you can, hell it closed at $500 last year and started at $325, we are already ahead of that, the market is strong and the season ended sooner than normal. We should all get $600-$700 every year no matter what. I'm in on a coop,we are the market us diggers and the internet gives us the ability to communicate. We all need to pull togehter
Hey guys...new here, but have been watching and checking the prices around. When I talked to my dealer last week, he stated that I should hold on to it for a little while. However, seeing the prices out east is tempting!
If anyone is interested in getting together for a large single sell, I'm in. I think I will have just over 2 lbs of dry once it is completely dried out. The bulk of it is above average for what I had been used to digging as I dug some hollers that I had stayed out of for 10+ years. Hopefully, it was worth the wait.
Oh yeah and I'm in South Central part of MO.
I attached a picture of the first good patch that I found this year. Sorry it's a little foggy from the rain, but I think you get the idea. Gets my blood pumping everytime I look at!
Much against my best judgement but because I have two kids in college and both having issues with their cars, I sold 2 pounds dry early last week at Midwest in Ellington and got $360 a pound, my Dad and I had looked an area over earlier and were unable to find the plants we knew were in the holler and while turkey hunting yesterday I found the plants. Hung the shotgun in a bush and went to digging with my trusty screwdriver. (anyone else use a long, straight screwdriver to dig with? In many types of soil it is a very effective tool and easy to carry) I dug almost exactly one pound of green roots, mostly all big 3 and 4 prong stuff with 10+ years of age showing and since Midwest was on my way home I stopped and Randy paid $110 a pound green for it, bumped a little for being quality roots. I hate being hard up for money to the point that I need to sell rather than wait but I think so far the guys there have been fair with me and aren't holding out, just following the market trend like so many of us. Anyway that's an update on selling in SE Missouri, I was done for the year, I thought, and had switched gears to hunting. But digging a $110 in two hours when you started out turkey hunting for the day ain't the worst luck I ever had, for sure! Keep that info flowing!
