22 ounces is a real nice dig for such a short hunt. Congrats Chief. I saw your other thread and it reminded me of how it was here last fall. It's good to see that you still have some green ones, maybe that rain you got the other night will keep those ones hanging on a little while longer. I think the ones that are alredy wilting or yellow probably aren't going to last long.

It don't sound like she's a too awful bad woods now:) Congrats on another good hunt Chief! I went out for a while this morning and dug a few, but transplanted most of them to another spot. Did bring home a few, but nothing exeptional. I was finding quite a few yellow ones here today, but was on a more west facing slope. This plant is probably in the worst shape as any I have seen so far.
