2017 part 2...silver restarts my season!

It's been a long, hot dry summer here in Bama...hard to even get motivated in the heat and in good spots it is hard to dig without wrecking everything even with my Sampson.
Nate dropped a lot of rain on us last weekend and the temps are finally falling a little so the weather isn't baking the moisture out if the soil so badly and quickly and the signals are better.
I got though our "winter" downtime so now it is time to start up again in earnest.
In a lawn I have been hunting all summer after the few rains we had gave up a lot but I thought I was done.
Yesterday I tried one more time and the ground had the perfect amount of moisture, the digging was perfect, the signals were better and more numerous and this thing popped up...Lucky #13 silver target for me in 2017.
I used to love summer and hate winter when I grew up in Michigan but now that is flipped.
Time for the games to begin again in earnest...phase 2 of the 2017 hunting season is just beginning for us here now.
About time.
A good start, hope there is much more to come.

Nice one - I went out Fri. and also got a 1943P war nickel. The last three months of the year is the most productive time for me. We got some rain from Nate also, after a long dry spell.
