    Relic Hunting

    Great start to 2017

    Got to dig for three days just got back and wanted to share. I found a Pickwick with my nephew about 50 ft from the swamp.
    Wet clay does not go through a sifter well.
    Anyway enjoy.
    Have video of the pick up but don't know how to upload.
    I don't have a youtube account.

    Yes Sir and this was found right down the road from you.
    There were tons of roots that is the hardest dig site I have ever done.
    I can't believe it but we did not even hear it hit the shovel. I'm sure you can recall how chert sounds when it hits the shovel blade.
    We were banging the roots lucky we did not break it in half.

    I wonder what are the signs to choose spot for such kind of hunting?

    Most of what I am looking for is a buff overlooking a river smaller one in my case that does not flood.
    It would be just as if you were looking for a nice flat place to camp for 2 weeks with no supplies.

    Coastal Plains chert probably from the Allendale, SC quarry.
