    Hitting the overgrown and muddy fields.


    I got out for my first hunt since the ground froze solid in January, it’s been a long cold snowy winter here in the north! My first field, next to an old fruit orchard was pretty much still frozen to due the thick ground cover. The orchard was pretty much frozen as well, I’ll head back here again in the next week or so.
    The next site I headed to was a very muddy and wet farm field where the archeologists had been digging last summer. This site is scheduled to be developed into residential house later this year. The surface/eyeball finds were plentiful after the had snow melted, but I did manage to make a couple of interesting finds, but no real keepers. I’ll head back here as soon as the ground firms up a bit… it felt like my rubber boots had five pounds of mud stuck to them!

    Word of advice, don’t leave your expensive prescription eye-glasses on the Tonneau Cover of your pick up truck, as you might drive away forgetting they’re still there. I drove for over a mile before I realized this was the case yesterday morning on my way to detect. I decided to head back and walk the route I drove three hours earlier, thankfully I found them on the side of the road in a ditch. When I got home our dog Lilly said, “Dad how could you be so silly... do you have a treat for me”?

    Thanks very much for looking!
    Dave

    Nice finds Dave. Glad you found your expensive prescription glasses. Looks like a large area to hunt for one guy. Let me know if you need some help. Lol. Congrats on the finds.

    Thanks Patriot, I still can't believe I found them!
    Our dog is a Havanese, sweetest dog we've ever had.

    Thanks buddy, I've pretty much covered the hay field, I'm just waiting for the farmer to cut the grass in the fruit orchard.
    Best of luck to you in the Niagara Region this year,

    Thank you Professor.
    We have heavy rain in the forecast this week, so next weekends hunt should be interesting as well.

    Thanks John, I think the muddy field has the potential for more interesting finds when the ground firms up.

    Thanks for your post Randy, I sure hope so.
    The muddy farm field is one of the older sites in this area, probably c1830 - 40, so who knows.

    Metal Detecting
    Hi! Do you mind me asking where you find your old maps? I don't do fields... parks and schools mostly. I am still waiting for the ground to thaw (I live in MB.), can't cut nice plugs with it half frozen. If you do old spots that no one goes to it wouldn't matter but I like to stay in the city.

    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.
