I made the two hour drive to a battle area to hit some hunted out woods.
My buddy said let's do some door knocking and try to find somewhere that's not hunted out.
First lady we asked said she had too many pets buried in the yard ,second guy said we could but there's already been a ton of people there digging In the past.
Hunted for an hour with no results. I saw a guy across the street working in his yard and asked permission to just hunt the curve and not his nice manicured yard. Had a long talk with him. Several years earlier he let some one hunt his property and they left dig holes everywhere but we could hunt a small area behind his fence in the back yard.
I thanked him and my hunting partner and I started hunting the small area . I dug one civil war bullet and gave it to the property owner. He then said you all can hunt my back property down by the water.
I did not know he owned the 15 acres behind him. Most is swamp but there was some high ground where there was one bullet after another. Almost all were pinpointer deep.
The land owner only wanted 4 bullets total so the other 60 or so were ours. I dug 34 myself and my friend did about the same .

Great results on the lead.
The round brass item with the 2 holes, looks familiar, black powder top?
Shell fuse, not sure what kind.

I don't mean to steal your post away, but need to know if this is the same thing, or am I just daft?
I knew it looked familiar, so I went digging in the trays of future to be

You folks had a great day and found a lot of goodies. But I think maybe you got the title wrong. It was your good detecting behavior and courtesy to the land owner that really paid off. If everyone did what you did we would all be better off. Congratulation, stay safe, keep swingin and go back and hit the area hard. There is sure to be more goodies waiting. I hope you find lots more. :thumbsup:

Thank you very much . These days it is humbling to have a place to hunt.
