Sorry about the implied price in WNC... No one is BUYING yet, that is the PLANNED price per pound that has been discussed for the upcoming season. The people I know let their planned prices be known well before season starts. I am glad the price is low because too many poachers see it as an opportunity for fast cash. I grow mine on my own property now and have had a terrible time with poachers for 2 years now.
thankyou all for your replys i do hunt every cahnce i can when seson opens but i leave the green berrys along i also love the hunt so i would never bite the hand that could feed me one day the thrill is what i am after plus i can use the money i am currantly going to school so yea the money helps i have only been hunting for 4 yrs and i catch alot of slack on my sang because it is red that is just the color of soil where i have permmision also i only know 2 who buys and i dont feal like they are being fair some times i do understand from their point of veiw but i just dont like to think everyone in these are cheats i just love to hunt it and want what everyone else gets for it no more or no less this is kinda dangerous to do account of the snakes and ticks you know what i mean i meet one of the biggest rattel snake i ever seen last yr so i have even more respect forthis hobby i would never dig everything in the woods but here it has been getting so dry you still have time to scout some while the berrys are getting wripe and you can pick up some yellow plant along the way and you will have some sang stock piled by mid sept well anyway if you know about the red sang in tennessee and can tell me who will buy it please let me know thanks everyone

Hey Tony, Are you sure the sang is not red because it is protected? The reason I ask is I know they have been dying ginseng in the Smokey mountains. I am not saying this is true with you. Just a thought.
