    Arkansas CW Relic Hunt With Dman & Okie Relic Friends Near Jenkin's Ferry

    One great advantage to writing articles for the treasure/relic hunting magazines and participating in related activities is the good friends that you make along the way. Three friends from Oklahoma (John, J.J., and Terry) invited Dman and myself to meet them in Arkansas and hunt near the Jenkins Ferry Battlefield. That battle occurred in April 1864 and was the last major Civil War engagement in Arkansas. Every recovered nice relics and we enjoyed excellent weather.
    The first pic is my finds from the hunt. Dman will post his finds later and he has some interesting finds and firsts also. I fully expected to find a variety of bullets but the first 6 that I dug were all different. My favorite is the Enfield with a ring carved around it by a CW Soldier. The flattened .58 3 ringer was likely used as a poker chip. I had never dug a Starr carbine bullet and few Tie Ring Sharps bullets. The little brass brads are from knapsacks and there is a knapsack hook and a square attachment for a 1851 sword belt rig. Lots of harness and a bridle ring. I also dug an unreadable IH and 1913 wheatie.
    John unseated Dman for Best Find of the hunt award on Saturday afternoon with the sword guard (looks like it came from a 1840 wristbreaker) as John shows it to J.J. in the second pic He also won the bullet master award with a total of 50 (he doubled up with more than one in a hole a few times). Just before we left after hunting a couple of hours on Sunday morning, he dug a fuse plug that appears to have come from a Hotchkiss shell. He has many years of experience hunting CW relics and is pretty good with a detector too-LOL.
    The third pic is of the hunting party (Terry, J.J., John, and Dman). John’s son J.J. (a.k.a. “Honey Bun”) is shown coming out of the pine woods in the next picture. He was the self appointed hunt coordinator. We could have used some lawn chairs J.J.-LOL.
    I came home with enough relics for a small wooden display case and actually recovered more than I expected that I would. We definitely plan to go back there. Good friends, good weather, and excellent relic hunting in a very historic CW site-what’s not to like? HH, Quindy.

    Nice finds, nice photos, and nice new friends=Trifecta Nice haul of bullets and those brass finds have a very pretty green patina to them too. How long of a drive was it down there from Middle Tennessee?

    Lucky Ducky...what an awesome invite to hunt so close to where the action took place. Its great that you guys shared your story with us, the pics are awesome and your finds are a detectors dream of a great day relic hunting.
    When you feel down because you didn’t
    get what you want, just sit tight and
    be happy, because God is thinking of
    something better to give you.

    Thanks Jeff. I was pleased with the variety there. I was hoping for a musketoon or Mississippi Rifle but maybe next time. HH, Quindy.

    Thanks Josh. It was about 7 hours driving time but just to get to see our friends again and hunt with them was great even if we didn't find relics. HH, Q.
