Well, it was blazing hot, but the itch to dig was strong. My friend Tony and I went to a school yard we had not hit before. The spot has promise, but I know if there IS silver here, it is DEEP. The wheats came from 6"+. There is a wheat I missed in the group picture. It is the first cent in last pic.
Better than a hot poker in the eye... By the color and age, you can tell that there might have been some silver in the park we hunted in Constantia, NY, but no luck for me. The fertilizer chowed on these.
Because of the increasing amount of hunters (lower detector prices), our local parks have been depleted of silver. You can hunt all day just to find one merc. This is all I found out this past weekend.
The park we hunted in this past weekend has been pounded by many hunters with many different detectors, but it still gives up some goods from time to time. No Silver or great finds, but some clad at least... The musket ball came from an area settled in the late 1700s. Do you think it could be War of 1812??? Revolutionary??? Maybe, but I would think not.
I have been out hunting for the past number of weeks. Have not found anything worth posting. Looking for new spots and new hunting partners. Found a gentleman who lives in Clay and we have been out twice. Nice guy and retired, so as free as I am. Here are some pics of the area we went to last weekend... Wonderful scenery. old place, but no Silver to be found.
Cemetery founded in 1809. Has War of 1812, Revolutionary, and Civil War Soldiers
Wow! Have not been out since last fall really. Nowhere to go, no car, no hunting friends, bad health. Finally got together with my regular hunting friend and hit a local park we thought was hunted out and filled in so much we were not gonna find much. Boy were we surprised. I am still new to the Eqx 800. I downloaded the new F2 update which reset the machine and I was hunting with factory presets. Not a fan of the new F2 update, or it could be I need more experience. My buddy pulled 2 fish-scales, a few mercs, and a few barbers...7 coins in total. This was my haul:
