    ALL Metal Hunt at CSA Cavalry Camp Today

    It seems like all I have done lately is write magazine articles. I have cranked out 2 for AD Magazine and another for North South Trader in the past week. I was dying to go hunting. Dman was playing golf and Josh had to work so I made a solo trip to a CSA Cavalry camp with one mission in mind-search an area where the camp blacksmith shod the hundreds of cavalry horses for the CS Soldiers camped there. I hunted for 3.5 hours before it got too hot. It started out at 62 degrees when I arrived at 7 am and was 83 deg. at 10:30 with high humidity. My shirt was soaked with sweat when I left.
    I haven't hunted that part of the camp in probably 12 years but a friend had dug 3 iron stirrups there. The old Fisher that I used there previously would almost blank out with the iron nails in the small area. The F75 was a different matter as you can see.
    I tossed the first 6 or 7 horseshoe halves that are not in the pic. I was amazed at the horseshoe pieces and iron pot parts there. I brought them home so I could clean and clear coat them to give to school kids as they came from a historic Confederate camp commanded by a famous Colonel. I enjoyed finding the pocket knife and fired .36 cal. ball. I first thought the piece in the middle with 3 holes was a lockplate but after cleaning I believe it's from a wagon. The brass piece inside the small shoe looks to be part of a scabbard tip. I really enjoyed hunting today. Hunt every day like it's your last because it may be. Nothing exciting here but I'm going back because there are hundreds of other targets to dig there yet.
    Be on the lookout for my articles about some relic legends and Tenn. Trio finds in W & E, AD, and N S Trader magazine in the next 6 or 8 months. There are 4 articles scheduled for W & E, 3 for American Digger, and 2 for North South Trader so far. HH, Quindy.

    Well I would'a went huntin' with ya, Brad. Hopefully today is the last day for the 90's. Looks like tomorrow is going to be perfect for hunting if we can get that rain outta here by then. They are calling for temps in the 70's.. Congrats on all the upcoming articles and your finds~

    Thanks Jeff andCody. We occasinally find some of the little shoes in U.S. and CS sites around here. I always thought they were from small mules or horses used as pack animals for the troops.The square nails are thick in that site. Keep up your good digging in Missouri Jeff and send me a gold nugget from CA Cody. Thanks gentlemen, Quindy.

    Don't worry Breezie, Modern Miner will do it for me-LOL. I'll trade all this junk for an African Slave Bracelet-LOL. HH, Quindy.

    The mule shoes have a distinct look to them as well,as do the "draft horses",vs. the riding stock

    Looks like you had a good day hunting. I should have gone with you instead of playing golf. I shot a 71 and lost $14.00. It's hard to beat a bunch of high handicappers. LOL
