Any Ginsingers

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Walter Adkins, Aug 14, 2005.

  1. Was just wondering if anyone out there hunts for gensing or yellow root. I have been hunting the two for several years now. A great way to get out there and enjoy some time in the woods.

    i used to hunt both with my father-in-law,years ago,in the hills of pike county.like you said,one more way besides shroomin' to hang out with mother nature,when i wasn't chasing squirrels,grouse,deer and other critters in those woods.

    I have some down on my farm, been catching a few guys trespassing and stealing it. I go dig up sasafrass but have never done the sing. Would like to give it a try though.
     
  5. Bigchessie you have given me the flavor in my mouth again of could winter mornings and a cup of sasafrass tea. I think that sasafrass got me into drinking tea over coffee. Yes there is a season on gensing and the game wardens are active trying to catch people. It can take seven years for a plant to grow to a five prong in the wild. I will advise you to look before you dig. I once stuck my pick into a yellow jacket nest while digging some yellow root. I was clearing brush as I came out of there.

    ah,sasafrass tea :)
    used to collect and keep bags of it on hand.never cared much for tea,except iced,but hot sasafrass tea on those chilly mornings was hard to beat.

    I heard sasafrass has some cancer causing agents in it. You guys might want to be carefull using that stuff. I guess just about everything else might cause cancer too.
