    Finds are slim as of late

    I don't know about you guys, but I have hit a low point.
    At best a wheat or two, but no silver, no jewelry.
    My spouse is whipping me with her Bounty Hunter Tracker IV.
    I need a change of venue or luck.
    Hopefully you guys are doing better!

    I mainly coin shoot, but I also enjoy relic hunting and shallow ocean hunting.
    It's out there fellas. Research is the key. You will both be out hunting me again very soon. However, April has been my best month so far....17 silver coins, 2 silver rings. I'm only telling you that to get you fired up again!

    Great news Captain Caveman!
    I am glad someone is doing great.
    I see your silver list in your signature for 2016, and it is impressive!
    I can only dream of a seated quarter.
    We are fixing to be in the heat, so I guess I need to stop complaining and get out there and swing.

    Finally hit a silver 1920? mercury today 1/2" down.
    Thought it was going to be just a modern clad dime, so I was using my screwdriver, but it did not scratch it too bad.
    Also a 1928? wheatie.
    Hopefully luck is changing (at least a little).

    I have total faith in you Clad Slad! Find some homes built in the 40s or 50s and do some door knocking. Houses built in that time period have a smaller chance of having already been detected and there is always a few silver in those yards! Post your first silver when you dig it!!!

    I was out on an old football field yesterday that I have detected many times (it was the afternoon and it was HOT).
    I got a deep copper signal.
    I dug down 7-8 inches. I saw green, pulled it out, and it was a 70's memorial penny.
    Later I hit another deep copper signal, and out popped a 1944 wheatie that was solid green (I was expecting MUCH older than 1944).
    It is weird how soil conditions vary within the same county.
    The Indian Head penny I dug south of this in the park was much less green than this 1944.
    I am getting to where I like digging old copper, I want that large cent something fierce now.
    Is there any hope of digging a large cent in Jones or a surrounding county?

    Here is a link to the video of the Mercury Dime find on 4/28:

    I'm still new enough at this that digging anything up is better than nothing and I am glad to have finally found that 1st silver dime a couple months back. I've been back to that same location a few times and found nothing but scrap, but then I am not giving up on the place either as at it's worst it is still good practice...

    Best wishes to all for some quality dig time and some spectacular finds....

    Honorable Mentions (1)
    I just bought a new E-TRAC and I been doing ok. I found one silver and a silver ring and ear ring. I also found over $20 in clad in the past week. Everyplace I have hunted has been hunted by others and even myself with my ATP & V3i and I have managed to average over $3 in clad in every hunt which usually lasts from 1-1/2 - 2 hrs.. I hope my luck keeps up..


    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.
