    These are my most precious fines of 2020

    These are all my fines that I consider very precious to me I also taking account the condition they were all found on public property. Hey guys itís out there itís just how bad you want it I would say this is the beginning of my military fines before this I only found one Louisiana pelican code button but besides that treasure I never really found buttons or relics of battles this fort never had combat but they sure had a lot of visitors I got about non-beautiful grape shots and I cannon ball. I bought a bunch of 1912 postcards on this Ford and I saw where the cannons were placed and I said to myself self what would you do if you were a young boy stuck in the middle the summer day after day not having any action I thought to myself I would fire one of those damn cannonballs. Well I went on the other side of the Bayou I gaged maybe how far it wouldíve went and I started metal detecting and I found one I was so lucky but remember the harder you work the luckier you get. The only things that were not from this year was my Mexican cap 8 reale Which I found in a curb strip after I found out where the boats would come to drop off the Oxen and liquor and return of pine sole and things of that nature which is in the old historic district of my city which is 98% cement for all the lawyer offices in boutiques. Well one day I said Iím going to go check that all piece of grass one little strip people were looking at me like I was nuts I went with the keep your head down and donít look LOL And the rest is history

    And I could not have done it without my shovel Big Red I have broken six shovels leaving all the way up to the parana and I broke it I called them up and ask them if they were using cheaper irons he got very upset with me he said Iím sending you Big Red and donít ever call me back. The place I hunted at I had the challenge of Breaking red brick white shells oyster shells and thatís not including all the
    Modern trash. It truly was the best year of my life and now Iím moving on from the Fort because they say itís never hung it out but up put a huge dent in it. God bless the fort and all the war of 1812 Relics I have found. I appreciate your looking and God bless us all

    I am very lucky I donít get permissions because I canít bring myself to door knock because of rejection or because if someone knocks on my door it makes me pullout the AR. Uggh

    I canít do the door knocking thing either, all my permissions come from email or text requests after extensive research. Iím like you, Iíd rather people stay away from my door too.

    I'm impressed and jealous. Sure would be nice to have a great hunting location like you do. Especially like what you did with the cannon ball.
