Finally got some free time to get out before gun season starts. I bought a F75 last December and found some stuff but really wanted to see what I had missed in some old sites. I finally got to hunt a site where I and another friend hunted with Garret VLF Deep Seekers. I found this site in 1982. Hunted it till 1985 when the landowner sold it. New owner didn't want to be bothered. The land just recently changed hands again. Latest owner was fine with me looking. Started where I left off 32 years ago.

Had to wait till it quit raining this morning around 10:00 am. Pasture and some timber. Bullets in the timber are still dis-colored. Some with little or no patina.

I guess the rain really made the brass sound out today. Was in the timber and dug a 410 shotgun shell, same reading small button back, same reading another 410 shot gun shell.

1 .69 3 ringer with 2 pull holes.

A great day to hunt!

Keith

It was exciting going back and seeing what has changed. Some trees are gone, but I can remember where I found some really great items and hit those places first.

I have enjoyed following your post.
