    New guy in Panola County

    Hey all! New here, but not new to MDing, just to giving it a go in MS. Spent the past few winters down here (fishing), and moved here permanently after my dad passed-away several months ago. Been busy, and just now getting back-around to detecting. Problem is, not much in the way of research available here. Been to both Courthouses (Sardis/Batesville), all over the internet...seems there was a (Courthouse) fire late 1800's early 1900's and records were lost, not sure if that included the old Plat Maps, but there's none to be found (for this area). Been to the Library, got a book on the history of Panola County. Interesting, but not alot of good info for MDing. My preference was fields where houses, churches, and schools were long gone, but looks like it's going to be a bit of a learning curve ahead.

    Fishin' been slow, need a motor for my boat.....lol, so MD'ing, I thought, was gonna keep the cabin fever away. Wrong! Been lurking here the past several days, so thought I'd join-up. Been looking around at all the forums, and this one looked best to me. Made a few good friends over the past few years here, but they're old geezers who don't have any interest in MDing, and so far been no help in the area of information. Meh, guess I'll keep 'em around anyway, lol.

    Anyway, glad to be here, looking forward to seeing what you guys are finding.

    Welcome, crappy. (Not sure what to call you based on your screen name lol)

    I'm in Madison, but I have family hunting land I frequent up in Tallahatchie Co halfway between Charleston and Grenada. Not too far away.

    Panola Co has gained a reputation since last Dec. 6. Stay on everyone's good side!

    Welcome
    A few days notice, I'd drive up there for a coffee meet and greet. Perhaps hunt.
    Weekends or week day. Just please after 8am and 50 plus temps.

    Yep, great area with some research. I hunted with a doctor buddy of mine many years ago near the lake. Could not get there again if I had to though. Hang near those RR bridges! I am up in the Memphis area. Good luck!
