The Honey Hole
So ive heard of these places and just happen to stumble onto 1 myself in a small town with a old swim hole close by a very small 100x100 yard or so park...the lake was taken out the park wasnt used much after that so all the garbage i dig is old garbage like it was frozen in time 2 days of hunting i only got maybe 70 cents in clad tons of old bottle caps and ...14 silver 33 wheats im sure theres acouple silver .
11 the first day 3 the next ...
Sorry for the bad cell pics
So the real question is how many of these old parks are left is anyones quess and my honey hole is dry so i gotta get back to research ...good luck all

Sweet! Were they in the swim hole?
Stand up for what's right, even if your standing alone.

I got most of them from the park the swim hole is all grown trees and theres alot of trash for old camp sites and the dirt may have been moved makes it hard to hunt but the front entrance was left alone

When the going gets wierd, the wierd turn pro....
Nice haul of silver there, I wouldn't write that spot off just yet though, hit it again after a good rain, or in the spring if you get frost where you're at, I'll bet there's more there.
