I have a scenario that I need some info on. I live in PA, and usually do all my hunting/digging in PA. Next year I have permission to dig on property in NY state, just across the state line. Do I have to keep the NY root separate from what I dig in PA? Do I have to sell NY root to a NY buyer, and PA root to a PA buyer? I want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row before I start hunting next season.
Mortis, your question is similar to the one I had on a different thread. Apparently, if you plan to cross state lines with ginseng you have to have it certified by the state park. In order to get it certified you have to have a dealers license for that state as well. So, a long story short if you dig in NY you would have to sell those roots in NY. Of course you can always smuggle them, but I never recommend breaking the law no matter how much the law doesn't MAKE SENSE! Good luck with your ventures and hope you find a ton next season.
