  1. Crazy encounter while hunting?

    Watched me for about 5 minutes, think it liked the sound of the detector. We have a neighborhood cat that always comes running when she hears the detector.

    Silver and old My Grampa gave me a drawer full of silver coins when I was 15. Over a hundred, dimes, quarters, 50 centers and dollars. Put them in a draw in my room. Years later when I went to look they were gone. My six year old brother had found the stash and spent it all on ice cream...
  3. Has Anybody Ever Trained a Dog to Find Silver?

    Actually it could be a workable idea, intriguing for gold and silver. There is a fantastic book, What The Dog Knows, by Cat Warren, about her experience training cadaver dogs. I know her name is ironic. These dogs, trained correctly only ID human remains, they ignore live humans, dead rabbits...

Take the jog west and stay a night in Hyder Alaska. Watch out for the black bears eating the new grass along the highway, you'll see at least...

    Welcome from a fellow Arkansan. In LR. Not getting out lately, too dang hot. But going to the Texas coast next week and will try out the CTX and CZ21 in the salt for the first time. If you are on facebook, be sure to join the Metal Detecting Arkansas group, a very nice bunch of folks.
  9. Buffalo River Country Arkansas

    Hey Verde, UAMS med-school class of '89. Still in LR. We have a friend with a cabin over looking the river at Baker's Ford, near St. Joe, and we go up there a couple times a year. Its a huge temptation to take the CZ up there and sniff around the put in site at the Ford but I'm too old to go...
