    Unusual Find in Virginia part II

    I had posted the following a few weeks ago;

    "Unusual Find in Virginia
    so, ... I found a cemented pole dirt volley-ball court in the woods (net long gone). I thought it would be cool to go in there with my trusty BH 202 and test the pointer that my Wife got me for Christmas today. Alot of dead, moist leaves about 2 inches deep. Kinda tough, having false positives, .... cranked the sensitivity back as things settled down. Got a solid hit, very repeatable, ... started digging, .... found a hibernating green Tree Frog. Stopped digging, ... went home, ... picked a bad time to stop drinking"


    Yesterday I went to a park that has two basketball hoops. I found a few quarters and pennies, ... then got a strong sharp signal of 92, ... pinpointed the target and started digging, ... the dirt began to 'move', ........ Another Hibernating Tree Frog! This one was way smaller than the first Frog. I don't like disturbing the Frogs. I put the Frogs 'nest' back together in hopes that I didn't hurt his survival chances.

    What's odd is if somebody told me to go out into the throws of Winter and bring back a Tree Frog, I'd never find one. So far, ... 2020, Two Frogs. The Simplex and Bounty Hunter 202 blast right through the Frogs body, thankfully, none were hurt, just disturbed, ... like me.

    Cool find!

    Last year I was in the woods at a 1700's site and low and behold I dug up a sleeping frog. I carefully reburied him and hope he was well.

    I too, have had the luck? to unearth a hibernating frog, but the signal I was chasing was some clad near my sleepy friend. Very weird that your frogs actually registered as a metallic target... Ddf

    Ok,...... think logically,......

    Ok,.... if the frogs each swallowed a quarter it would come up 90~91

    So it's not such a leap to get a signal of 92


    I mean it's not likely the frogs were each wearing a wristwatch.

    No, but it could happen as they seem to jump 'willy-nilli'

    I'm sure that there is a coin or foil under it
