TOPIC: Just a helpful hint before the upcoming season

Just a helpful hint before the upcoming season 8 years 9 months ago #1095

I've just been sitting here with huntin on the mind and thought about a little tip my papaw shared with me once and thought it might help some of you guys out. Where i live in east ky a lot of the old timers lived in the mtns back in the old days. And most of them kept a patch in their back yard. If you ever run up on one of these old home places take a look around. I know i have fount seng like this not a lot but it is worth the extra time looking around.

It sound like you are looking at Virgina Creeper.

I agree with bowhog. It sounds like Virginia creeper. If you follow the stem down into the ground, Virginia creeper will be connected to a vine that runs to the next plant. You can usually pull it up a bit and see the vine. It also looks \"woody\" toward the bottom, like a tree sprout. Here is a photo with VC and sang in the photo, You can see the difference. The first time I was looking for sang, I found creeper and thought I was rich...sigh.
