    Wild first hunt of the year! Silver half!

    Hey guys,
    I had a late start to the year mostly due to the weather up here in Seattle. We had floods due to such heavy rainfall. Anyways, I got out with my brother this afternoon and hit a couple places he had mapped out for us. It started off pretty slow, finding a few wheats here and there but no silver.

    About 2 hours in we hit a new spot. My brother looks at me and goes, “this place only dates back to the 1980s but I have a feeling it’s older because of this staircase. It looks like it led to an old house that used to be there.”

    Not one second later I go “I’m getting a solid 31-32 which is a silver quarter”. He comes over to the hole I dug and I told him to watch. I dig up some more dirt and out pops a big shiny! It’s a walker!Click image for larger version.

    But that wasn’t even the most interesting part of the day. Me and my bro got into it with some crazy lady who was upset that we were digging holes. I won’t go into to much detail because my brother posted the whole argument on his post, but man some people literally have nothing better to do. It did make for an entertaining day nonetheless lol!

    Happy hunting out there guys!

    Good start to the year. That should make it easy to smile through the rest of the season.

    That thing is a beauty man! I’m so pumped for you.

    If I remember correctly I said, “We have to get you a silver today. Where’s that SLQ?” One second later you said, “I’m getting a 32 right here, this could be it.” I asked “is it tight?” and you said, “yeah, sounds like a coin”. So glad I stuck around for the live dig! Let’s keep your good luck rolling

    Sorry mate. I was distracted by the lady saying she’s gonna send the Brazilian jiu jitsu master on us.
