I went to spot number four on my Garmin..kinda disappointing..lots of sang but well below average size root..i dug 10 ounces and thought this is stupid .all the ones I dug were 4 prongers..some were knee high nice big plants but small root..i spent 45 min.s digging and a hour and a half plucking off the tops, no one will find them this year..just a strange woods....
I have noticed over the years that different areas of my county and neighboring counties the seng is just different..
Some areas the tops will be larger and the roots smaller.. and some areas the tops will be small but the roots larger and then in some places the tops and roots will be larger (my favorite spots for sure).
Different soil types, nutrient content, light, slope, etc ... sometimes it favors tops and sometimes roots, and sometimes both.
I hunted a long day yesterday and it rained on me on and off all day. Thought of you a couple times. Hope you get some of this rain soon.
living the high life,,it was hot and dry in the woods today...60 % yellow 20% still green .20% down or burnt up...ive dug this stuff for 51 years and ive never seen it go this quick....39 oz. today....
44 by the time I got out of the woods there was only two swigs in that bottle.lol...thanks Hob..our weather maybe diffrent but you and me are still having fun in the timber.good luck the rest of the way.
That's the way it was here last season chief. I had to hunt low along the creeks most of the season. Everything up high looked like someone took a flamethrower to it. Looks like you've had a killer harvest. Hope you get some more quality hunts in before it's gone.
