    Civil War Company Letter B and LOTS of lead and brass!

    Hey everyone, People have been texting and asking why I have been so quiet.......just been working some shifts out of town which I don't mind doing as it gives me an opportunity to scout around in Virginia for future hunts. Anyway here are a few pics of my latest hunt. As you know I've been hitting some Yankee camps I hunted many years ago and I thought I had cleaned them out. Obviously NOT! Its amazing what just a few years can do to some wooded areas that were once impenetrable with underbrush......... now many are free of ground cover and the targets are everywhere! The 69's were deep but my machine picked them out without any trouble at all. Got a tip to a bayonet, hat letter B, some eagle buttons (3 coat and 1 cuff), a cuff Massachusetts, a cuff New York, some musket balls and several bucky balls. Temperatures are hitting middle 90's here where I live so I don't have to tell you how easy it is to wear yourself out. Heck even the ticks seem to be moving slower! Hahaha HH Devonrex

    Man! VERY well done! I went out last week (also a central Virginia guy) and was worn plum OUT in 3 hours. Didn't score like YOU did though. Finds like that tend to make the heat more bearable! Envious . . .

    And unusual (I would think) to find a heap of .69s in a yankee camp, unless it's a very EARLY camp!

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
