    Are buffalo nocturnal? +Silver Coin #50 FTY

    Hey folks!

    Okay, I didnít exactly take zoology 401 in college but I know buffalo arenít nocturnal. However, how you do explain that the last several buffs Iíve found have all been at night or around sunset? Hmm?

    Talked to a couple neighbors this morning and got permission to do some detecting down the block. I finished up dinner and got out for 1.5 hours. The first permission was a little bigger and I managed a couple tax tokens, then a couple 44-S Wheats and the surprise 36-D buff at only 2 inches deep.

    Then I went to the other little permission I got which had very few signals. Lucky for me, one was silver! A 57-D Rosie. Nothing too fancy but itís my 50th silver coin on the year. Iím a bit behind last yearís pace but to be fair, I was detecting at an unsustainable rate last year (at least for a young married guy with a job and a semblance of a social life lol).

    pretty cool, sometimes it is what it is, kind of like the tax tokens LOL, buffs and silver are similar, they can pop up in unexpected places or not at all. life can be quite busy but you have done quite well, congrats

    Maybe you're finding the buff's at night because that's when you're detecting!
