Well headed out with a friend today after a massive rain storm to help with the thaw out,
The grounds been frozen solid since around Christmas so it’s been only beach hunting.
Well this small baseball field built in 1954 was slow to start I like to bounce around a lot in new spots to find the most
Productive spots and my intuition was right as soon as I headed towards the beach end I hit a 1954,Rosie
Then the silver kept coming mercs another Rosie one 1918 merc and then a spill 6 wheats 1 Indian
And a buffalo! And 16 wheats
Wow could this afternoon get any better??? Yep popped a sterling ring! A few dollars in clad then I had a solid
96-97 on Deus I kept saying there had to be some silver quarters around?? A early Standing liberty no date
I hit it with shovel ground was solid in this spot I guess it’s better than not finding it.

I am with Rich(Utah) that is a stellar day of hunting. Finding that many silvers in a hunt are becoming rare but it seems you found an untouched area. If it has been hunted before, those poor souls forgot to turn on their detector.



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.

LOL your right I hunt beach communities in the winter "off season" drive down local beaches along the coastal state I'm in and it pays off big time sometimes that was a 3 hour hunt in the afternoon days are short so I have to hit them while its still light out..

I can truly sympathize with only being able to beach detect due to frozen ground. Conditions are the same where I live too.:( You certainly made up for it with this FANTASTIC HUNT. :clapping: Great job and Happy Hunting
