TOPIC: South Mississippi Hunting

South Mississippi Hunting 2 years 10 months ago #34077

I was curious if anyone knows how far south the the American Ginseng has been found? I live in South Mississippi (Biloxi) and was interested in trying my luck.
Thanks!

The Map (image below) is included in Scott's Book and can be found online in several sources where the range of wild ginseng is the topic.



Biloxi is right on the coast so... Looks like you would have to go north a ways to have a better chance of finding seng.

Thank you, I do believe I've only seen one Ginseng plant in the wild here in my area, I spend a lot of time hunting for Chinkapins and just generally walking around in the woods. It caught my eye because it's just not something I was used to seeing here, it stuck out in my mind but I've never seen another. I somewhat remember the location so this fall I'm gonna go check it out but it's the only one I can honestly say I remember ever seeing. If I can't find it again it'll give me an excuse to check out some new woods further north. Thanks again.
