    Detecting in Snow and Cold Weather Finds

    I've been out detecting continuously during the past weeks but not posting finds as I am waiting to find something remarkable. We don't have snow now but temps are hovering around freezing. During the last snowstorm I was out detecting for several days in 1" - 3" snow without problems. Since I detect forest floors in search of colonials the leaf barrier has kept the ground from freezing. I simply kick the snow aside and dig. I've certainly found my share of nails and spikes, horseshoes, eating utensils, broken tools, plow pieces, kettle frags, bullets and the like. Only this small collection of buttons including the R&W Robinson two-piece today which dates between 1834 - 1848. I prize these buttons because they offer some of the few diagnostics providing date ranges in the absence of coins. It feels good knowing they were there it gives me continued hope. I also found a small lead net sinker as i am close to the ocean and the matching decorative pieces which could be horse tack.

    The woods are beautiful this time of year and I want to be out in them anyway. Despite hunting a sparse population of agrarian settlers who didn't possess much material culture to lose I'm out there swinging.

    Very nice collection of finds!
    It is so rewarding to hunt in the snow and cold and still have a decent hunt.
