    Bucket Lister for me!! But someone raided my site...

    Went out to a newer site I found, that I didn't think had ever been detected. The sheer amount of easy signals, the absence of any holes or iron laying around, told me "VIRGIN". Well....im glad I put in a lot of hours last time because someone raided it and it looks like the aftermath of World War 1....CRATERS everywhere.....

    They left cans...they didn't fill in the holes, left empty cigarette packs...and iron pieces on every stone, wall, and foundation edge. It's deep in the woods, so it's unlikely someone just stumbled upon it. And I suspect there were multiple people as it would be tough for 1 person to do all this in less than a week.

    But...oh well. I got my coins and buttons and every other decent signal do at least they had to work for it.

    Today I hit it again, and managed a first for me, and something I have always wanted to find.....a HORSESHOE!!! Ive found shovels, hoes, plows, stoves and every other iron blob imaginable... but the horseshoe has eluded me! Haha, I'm sure some of you get tired of finding them..

    I also found 2 roundballs, a button and tons of nails. Decent day all-in-all! Thanks for reading and happy hunting! Sorry no pics, left them all in the car...nothing really worth posting....

    Good luck and HH!!!

    I hear you Bud. I have permission to hunt a place and have hunted it several times. Last spring I went there and knew that someone else had gotten permission and hunted it. When I got there he had did the same thing. Left the junk laying everywhere. What a slob. There was iron junk laying right beside his holes. I maneged to find a few good targets so he obviously didn't know what he was doing. What bothered me most was the landowner thinking it was me. I cleaned it up and he hasn't been back since. He better hope I never see him there or I will let him know what I think.


    PS congrats on the horse shoe.

    be sure to get the varmint claim jumper's permission revoked . I have a buyer in La. who grabs every horseshoe I list. they are an easy sell for luck & rustic charm. never be afraid to dig iron---some relics can be better than a coin . I dug an old pulley wheel this week--put a few items in a lot and include honker square nails to hang the relics . now go have some fun, and have a shallow plot dug for the poacher

    That really sucks my friend. There's a reason I try to put myself on the most remote sites I can find. I love these cabin sites with no cellar homes because they are always virgin. Yes they are hard as hell to find but I never have to deal with that crap. Do you ever post photos from your site? Make sure you disable the location services if you do. People are lazy and they are grimy my friend. Congrats on the iron. Get yourself an electrolysis set up and start preserving these great pieces for display

    Congrats on the horse shoe and sorry to hear about someone coming in on your permission. I have caught a couple on one of mine and ran them off.
    Growing old is not for sissies I thought it would take longer to get old.

    Congrats on your first horse shoe and bucket lister! My first find, with my little sisters bounty hunter junior was a horse shoe. I was hooked after that.
    Best of luck out there and happy hunting!

    I try to avoid ever posting a pic from a site. Usually we stop at a gas station and take a pic of everything in the tailgate. I hear you in those cabin sites! I have a map of some up your way, they must be cabins because there are zero holes, cellars or anything! Just wells! I am hoping my Friday site will prove to be VIRGIN too! We'll see!! Thanks and HH!
