This show is without a doubt, the most overly dramatized reality show I have ever seen.... Not to mention, it is downright UNREALISTIC...... I have been hunting and dealing with Ginseng for over 20 years, and NEVER, NOT ONCE have I EVER seen a dealer deal in green seng. It dries to less than a 1/4 of its green weight, so when they are talking about having 60 lbs of seng, they had to dig well over 250 lbs of green to get that weight..... Im sorry, but in a GREAT year, a single person will do GREAT to find 1 lb....It also pisses me off because TRASH TV like this is why us legit genseng diggers are having a harder and harder time.... THis kind of show makes every tom dick and harry think they can get rich digging ginseng, so they go out, OUT of season and dig IMMATURE plants, making it completely unable to sustain the harvest.... And SERIOUSLY, how much drama can there be in 2 guys roaming around in mud, digging for worms, or some people walking around the woods, hunting for shrooms..... BORING!!! Or the eel fisherman, who makes the exact same trip EVERY day, yet suddenly decides to hit a rock JUST when he happens to have a boat full of fishb (just for overdramatic effect).... OK... WHATEVER....Then you have the Burl Hunters, who make cutting a tree seem like the most difficult thing on EARTH. Oh, and lets not forget the alligator hunters (trying to keep up with Swamp Peoples ratings, im sure)... again, BORING.... i swear, the best thing about this show, is the eel fishermans hat..... ... this show is TRASH, COMPLETE BS.... UNREALISTIC and TERRIBLY overly dramaized. I have literally NEVER rolled my eyes so much at ANY TV show, EVER!! It is seriously PAINFULLY overdramatized.
