    Checking in

    Checking in with everybody, been too dang busy at work and it doesn't pay enough to be this busy. Haven't done any dirt fishing in a couple of weeks
    and really want to go. Brock hit a deer with his car, hell of a way to put meat in the freezer, hope to get his car back from the shop this weekend.
    Ready to get the Blue Dragon back so I can have my freedom. Anyway been trying to keep up with things, know its a little slow with the weather
    but hoping we can get some places and times lined up.
    The deeper I dig, the more dirt I find.

    Rain has been getting us down lately.
    I am going to try to do some mud fishing today in Jasper County.
    I am hoping to score an old bottle.

    Went up to Jasper County today.
    Pulled out a 1904 Indian Head Penny today, a horseshoe, an old bottle, an old Laurel brick, and some pump organ reeds.
    Nothing to write home about, but was a lot of fun!

    Has been kinda quiet around here lately. Been cold up here in the northern parts, suns finally starting to warm things up again. I'm planning on getting back out tomorrow to the "unlucky" site I'd hunted twice so far (where I'd found the MS Tax Token). Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I've only managed to get out a couple of times since Christmas, with my biggest find being a leg off of a pot belly stove and one of the burner plates from I'm assuming the same stove. I think I have found enough nails to build a small home at this point and of course bottle caps and pull tabs are always abundant... Coins seem to avoid me like the plague, as in I can't even find a modern penny... I do have a question for y'all, do any of you ever have vanishing hits, as in you get strong signal, but as you dig 1st it moves and then it goes completely away, this doesn't happen to me occasionally, but frequently and it isn't just with one particular detector....
    Enjoy the natural treasures all around you while searching for the man made treasures you can cash in.

    I haven't been detecting since November, so that's over 2 months ago...and the time before that was the same. So I'm saying I've only been like twice since late summer/early fall. I'm thinking I've quit the hobby here. Just been that time of year w/ all the holidays and now the weather, etc. I hope to get back soon with you guys, and in full force! Must....dig....metal....objects....from....dirt!
    Stop talking about it; get out there and do it! There's history to be saved!

    Think we are all in the same boat just a slow time and the weather is screwy. We will just keep working on places to go and be ready. Steve don't forget how to turn the AT on. Once the hunters are out of the woods I will feel better about doing some recon work. Of course if someone lands a good spot, we will bring fresh batteries.

    Took the Vaquero this time, with the 10" Wide Scan Elliptical Coil. My permission to hunt this property "expired the end of the month, so I wanted to give it one more shot. I gotta admit, I was disappointed, I had high hopes for this site in the beginning. But, if nothing else, it was a bit of a confidence-builder for gaining permission.

    I did have a couple hopefuls today, one being the headstamp, and the other being the remnants of a zinc bottle cap. Freakin' teasers

    I'll get 'em next time

    Yes this happened to me yesterday (was not a really strong signal, but was a deep weak one).
    Either I dug it, and flung it with my shovel, or once the hole was dug, the detector could not see it anymore.

    CnC this is the same kind of stuff I find lately.
    I found a file, a horseshoe, some overall buttons, headstamps, bottles, and some misc old buckles.
    Looks like we are hunting old farming sites.

    It happens a lot where an iron item has been in the ground for a long time and leaches into the soil surrounding the item. They seem to always ring up as a coin until you stick your digger in the ground and break up the halo around the item then they return to ringing up as iron...and if you have iron discriminated it just disappears. Might still see it in pin point all metals mode but it usually will be much smaller looking to the detector once it looses its halo of iron oxide.
