Ginseng permits for forest service are lottery only this year in North Carolina. 132 permits for all western nc. People want to dig early and small stuff and now its the start of the end for a sport many of us love.

I hate that for you. Would definitely hate to see that happen here but I also realize it may be necessary. Very few people follow the laws. We get tons of people coming from KY to poach ginseng every year starting way before season, and then very few local people follow the laws as well so yeah bad situation.

Sell it. Thats why its such a problem with poaching. There are people here that do nothing else for income but dig ginseng. Its cash income, so the IRS doesnt know about it, and you can still draw welfare, thats pretty much how that crowd sees it.
