Hit a permission I've had for a while that just isn't producing like it seems like it should. Late 1800s overseers house with huge yard and tons of old old oaks. Was about to pack it in when I got a beautiful solid 34 on my Nox. Popped the plug and saw this gorgeous Franklin half. Not the date I'd expect from the property but I'm not complaining! Afterwards I went to my main permission and dug a huge flat button and a gorgeous pelican button. All in all a great day!
