TOPIC: Think its over but not without a hawg!

Think its over but not without a hawg! 4 years 3 weeks ago #25961

I've just run out of places. Went to this spot today and in one whole swag there was only a single plant. BUT, it was a nice one! Almost 3.5oz

Rickyc,
That is a beautiful prize to finish off the season. That is about the best job of digging that I have seen you do this season. Congrats.
Hugh

That flower spike looks like it goes to the moon.

Dang buddy, did you need an excavator? I went yesterday in hopes of confirming that it was gone here in Letcher County so that I could hang up my digger without much doubt but like you, I dug a 2oz hog and only three other plants. I guess I'm going again today. I'll be posting mine in another thread so that I don't hijack yours. Nice root and nice digging old buddy.

Chicks its still out there but the search could or could not be worth the time. You may do well or not pay the gas bill.

Hugh that berry stem was trying to get with the tree tops! I was a tall one.

Gibson if those rock I moved were much bigger I may have needed one. Luckily I didn't need the blasting caps.;)

Guys I went couple hrs to my hot spot. Found 5 ounces. There is still sein up just have hit , the protected spots . Leaves covered a lot of sein I knew was there. Going tomorrow hit some thickets , iknow its still in . It's rough digging 5 ounces when you digging one pound and more a trip.. good luck all still digging. I believe Friday or this weekend 95% will be gone. Supposed to get 27 degree. That should do it in

Ricky,

Congrats on a hawg of a top and hawg of a root, espcially this late in the season! And I thought you were going to show us a chopped Harley. LOL!! I hope you find many more like that one and I also applaud you for some great digging to get that root out with all those root fibers!
