    Tired of Seeing Tennessee CSA Relics? NEW-Added Relics from Jan. 29 Hunt

    Josh and I hit the woods near a middle Tennessee 1863 C.S.A. Cavalry Camp commanded by Gen. John Hunt Morgan early this morning. With a reprieve from the snow and temps in the upper 40s with sunny skies, it felt really good to get out and dig a few relics. Dman is still improving from his rotator cuff surgery and was sellling merchandise and manning "Relic Central" at his store today. I told him I would call him after the hunt but he couldn't stand it and called Josh before either of us could call him-LOL. He's going to be hard to hold back in about two weeks as he now has a terminal case of "relic fever".
    We walked a good 5 miles today. Either those Rocky Top Tennessee Hills are getting steeper or I'm getting older. The camp picket posts range from one quarter to almost a mile from the main camp as evidenced by the relics, campfire lead, etc. that we have recovered lately. Likely, the pickets from the farther distances were "Vedettes" (outriders) on horseback since this was a cavalry camp. I am still amazed at the number of horseshoes we still find. Josh put two of the more unusual looking ones he found today in the first picture. I discarded the ones I found as they get heavy in my relic pouch. He found his first brass belt adjuster today and he grinned from ear to ear as he's been looking at them in Crouch's relic book and wanting to dig one.
    There was a good assortment of dropped bullets today including a .577 cal. Enfield, 3 ringer, Sharps Carbine, both round and conical .44 cal. Colts, and Josh's .36 cal.pistol bullet shown in the second pic with his belt adjuster and carved nipple protector. We've got to research that bullet as it's not typical of the .36s we normally dig at that site.
    The harness ring that I dug has a brass "clip" looking part around it?? That's a puzzler. Josh also found another part of the bridle bit that he found a larger part of about two weeks ago.
    Jesse (Mainer), I thought of you when I dug that Sharps Carbine bullet today. Josh grinned when he said that he dug 2 "pain" bullets near the picket campfires today. I told him that the only pain they were associated with was when the squirrel chewing on them ruined his teeth-LOL Happy hunting from Dman, Josh, and myself in Tennessee, Quindy.

    Since several snowed in folks apparently still like to see relics (however meager), I added the bullets from a different Morgan C.S.A. Camp that I dug on a 3 hour solo hunt today. I won't bore you with the melted lead, horseshoe pieces, and square nails. The F75 detected these at 8-12 inch depth. The snow put a good amount of moisture in the soil.
    NOTE to Fisher F75 Users: I forgot to mention that the relics from yesterday were in a field heavily infested with iron signals. As we worked the site, if we were reading iron on our F75 displays and got a 30-50+ reading as we swept across the signal, we moved 90 degrees. If we still got iron AND the 30-50+ reading, we dug it. There were relics "hiding" in the iron. The detector manual does not tell you about that. Thanks for looking, Quindy.

    I for one never get sick of seeing your relics. Got out today on the mud flatts myself. Nothing to brag about but it felt good to get out and get dirty. Thanks for thinking of me Quindy. Keep up the good work.

    Don't talk too loud Dawg-LOL. I hope she thinks the towel belongs to Josh. She sees all my posts but really has no appreciation of how hard it is to consistently recover enough relics for a meager post every time we go hunting especially with Dman on i.r. The old pic backgornd towels need a good washing. HH, Quindy.

    Now that's a fine CW relic haul any one would be proud of Quindy. I can't believe all those shoes still laying about. I hope Doug gets better soon, I know he's just chewing at the bit to get out.
    Nice day J&Q

    Nice bunch of stuff. I took my F-75 LTD to the shop today to get it repaired and fine tuned. Maybe after I get it fixed and fine tuned it might be able to keep up with my Minelab SE. Two more weeks and I can't wait. I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas.

    Nice finds Quindy. I have been working in Nashville during the week and coming home on weekends. Going to try to get with Guy tomorrow and get the cobwebs off our machines. Will let you know how we do. It's been a while since we have been able to get out due to weather. Again congrats on your finds.

    Ahhh I heard a whisper across Monteagle that Vol was digging relics. Good job man looks like you nailed the site. I imagine you hunted along the way as well? You got the hills and we got the mtns. Nice relics as always. I am hunting Ga tomorrow.
