    From what I have heard, it is illegal to pick mushrooms, ginseng etc in LBL...

    This seems like a travesty! I could understand some sort of management plan and even a "hunting" lic requirement but a total ban is downright un American!

    What are your thoughts?

    I called about 3 years ago about picking morrel and was told I could pick morrel, but they couldn't let me gather ginseng. The woman told me some of the LBL workers gathered mushrooms when in season. I did hear about a guy that gathered a bunch of muskadines to make jelly with, they made him dump them out. I guess if it's something animals eat they don't want you gathering it. I don't know of anything short of snails that eat morrels. The ginseng, guess they don't want everybody digging up the woods to make money on federal ground. I was told i could get the morrels though.

    ^^^ This makes more sence than nothing allowed at all. The sing I understand its elegal to havest in the DBNF as well but mushrooms I would think should be fair game.
