    Gold ring and the beaver...

    I stopped by an obstacle course on the Army post where I work for a quick hunt Friday. This is just one obstacle on the course I hit a few times over summer then I detect the whole course about once a year. Found about $4.30 in American coins, 2.05 in Euros and this nice 585/14K gold ring. Not bad for 15 minutes.

    Gold ring 585 stamp.

    Got out for 1.5 hrs on a field this evening where our town supposedly first started, was moved in 1250. Only found a coin from 1874 and a coin from 1924. The field borders a stream and as I approached the stream I saw this tree that beavers have been chewing on. I looked around the tree and thought about how large the slivers of wood the beavers can hack off, and this is hardwood.

    I walked off detecting and when I came back I looked down into the stream near the tree and saw a young beaver swimming around having fun for a short time before he saw me and swam under some tree roots and poked its head out.

    I think I'm going to trap the beavers and let them go loose on my firewood, LOL. After seeing the beaver, I walked back to my car and got the camera. I'll get back there later this summer and take pictures of the tree to see how far they have gotten cutting down that tree, the bigger tree is atleast 3'/100cm wide. Just thought I would share this cool experience I had detecting. HH, Mike

    Looks like you may have interupted the beaver.

    We don't see too many beavers around my direct area. Now that I think about it, there is the highschool sports field to the left of the trees, making it dangerous if the trees fall but the way they are growing they should fall into the farm field. My point about that is, the city will probably come and cut down the trees and possibly relocate the beavers. I hope to get out today, been awhile. HH, Mike
