man that little shit JR is so full of it... I was very surprised that Matt dude didn't kick his butt and leave him hanging. I watch it cause I live around these parts and know some of the areas they r in... other than that I think its mostly staged and set up. I mean you see the same 4 prong n berries like 5 times in one show at different times. That Cody dude wants to be a ranger and has every thing with teeth n stinger in nature attack him...lol... I have been roaming these smokies and digging for 10 years and have yet to see a boar, bear or rattlesnake. I have been attacked twice by yellow jackets and eaten up...plus I am allergic and had to rush to the hospital. Even though I carry an epi pen n Benadryl. Then you have Carl the \"goat\" who can barely move saying everytime they find a patch that they founf a 5 or 10 pound honey hole. I have found mountain sides of 3 n 4 prongs and only walked out with 4 or 5 pounds wet. And never in just one central location. I have to laugh cause this show is very funny and its going to ruin ginsengs future...which on the flip side pisses me off. But who am I? I remember starting digging in Maggie Valley for the first 2 years I ever dug sang..hardly knew what it was. I almost never heard of diggers or ran into any others in the woods. Now everybody digs of all ages and salaries...I have run off 4 poachers this year off my land and I truly believe the show played a part in it. Its got 2 sides of the coin for me and that is my opinion... thanks for reading my rant....
Xlseng- yup, that's right... Live just east of Greensboro in the sticks of guiliford co.
Ncsmokiesanger- my best friend of over 30 years lives near Franklin. Maybe next time I go to see him, we could get together for a cup of coffee.
Would appreciate getting together with either of you!
