It may be too late. It may still have a berry pod, I'm not sure. They fall off this time of year. Have you ever seen a plant? If you naver have been how do you know what to look for? It's hard to explain what it looks like. It could have from 2 to 5 stems, depending on age.

Sept 1 comes in season. Get an old timer to show you. Find some woods others don't run. I get back in places not even a deer go's. Most of the time I come out with 15 to 20 oz a day(wet). Last year went for $500 pd ohio. I'm 50 and the grandkids still can't keep up in the woods.
