    Dirt hog paydirt? Anybody heard of this?

    I’ve just recently gotten into the hobby and this is only my second post I’ve made. I’m on Long Island so my only option is paydirt. I just ordered a 3 pound bag from “dirthogpaydirt.com” and then I noticed, if you add one more g to hog it takes you to “dirthogg” whitch is a known supplier. Anybody heard of this other one? Is it good?



    Ps can we have a paydirt category?

    Google the GPEX gold prospecting forum. It is mostly a Canadian forum and so is Dirthogg. I recall seeing many good reviews in posts with some even finding enough gold value to equal or more what they paid for a bag.

    If it can't be grown, it must be mined!

    I ordered a bag from somebody in Canada 6 or 7 years ago just to practice panning. I've found nothing panning my streams. Got a little color but not enough to pay for the bag. They may have just seeded it with a little to ensure a return customer. I didn't. Still have the bag, so I should give it a go again.

    I’ve heard of DirtHogg Paydirt, I’ve seen the dirthog website but haven’t tried it. I’m an avid paydirt fan, here is what I got from 3# of chickenminer paydirt last weekend.

    Hey Coolguy, it looks like no one that has responded yet has heard of the dirt hog with one "g", myself included. I've ordered from the Canadian DirtHogg before, and even got one of their "bonus bags" about 4 years ago when I was first getting in to the hobby.

    A quick review of the website for dirt hog (one "g") from Alaska seems to reveal...just another pay dirt company.
    If you can spare the money, it would be fun to do an experiment comparing DirtHogg's $89 "Cariboo claim" 2 pound bag vs. Dirt Hog's $89.99 "NUGGET BAG PAYDIRT" 6 pounder.
    Good luck!

    From 4 years ago:

    Do it... I'd buy a bag! 2# with a guaranteed 1 gram+ are popular with the panners I talk to...

    Remember, the paydirt folks are in it to make money, not give away gold. You won't get the full price of the bag, ever. But it's a lot cheaper for the fun value than a flight to California or Alaska from the East Coast.

    I'm in for the hunt... Not to get rich or break even.

    But I will say that I have had 4 instances where the ROI was well over 100% and the norm when researching sellers before I buy is 80% plus.
