Mark Nale Afield: Stalking wild ginseng can be lucrative sport

The first hunting season of the fall begins in just a few days. It is a lesser-known season, where “hunters” need no firearm, no license and participants are not obligated to attend a hunter safety class. It is the official hunting season for ginseng — a wild flowering plant and herb. The season is controlled by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and is regulated here by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
