If Tony started digging here in TN on or after 8-15 he is not a pocher.
About the berries. I found 1# & 14 oz. today that was irregular as far as the berries go. Most of the berries had fallen out with a few having a few red berries left. Some I dug had just a stem with just traces of dried leaves ,
This was in Jackson Co. all on the same hill. I found some in Smith Co. Wed. , about 15 miles from where I hunted today that had mostly green berries.
When they started the season here on Aug. 15 I ask why have a season if your going to have it while the berries are still green?
They said big green berries will come up.
