That's kinda what I was thinking of
They can really get around.
Now I recall,back when I mowed every three days down the meadows(was a turf farm,112 acres of a big lawn)later one fall morning I went down to metal detect,spider web strands were covering the whole field,it was an amazing show.

It had not been harvested yet,web strands were all over grassy areas,once harvested is when I detect,that area goes back to 1635,found some awesome stuff there the last 10 years.

That's some interesting history.
I don't think they'd let me in Massachusetts. 😄

Any civil war history thru there ?

I have found 5 Civil War Tokens,there was a training camp for the 46th Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry in the old high school athletic field,been hammered since the 60's,all I ever found was a .58 cal. rim fire hull.Found 2 46th Regiment buttons elsewhere in town.

It's kinda sad a great deal of hunting ground is covered in concrete,, asphalt and large buildings.
Have you tried following the civil war battle travels ?
What about old colonial roads ?
Sorry. Sometimes my mind out Pace's me.

yes... Very painful stings... And if you're allergic... several stings can be fatal.... It's no joke.... They can Kill a toddler... Their nests will pop up almost over night... And the nests come in pairs... The noticeable one will be down low... Usually in a fruit tree(crab apple, mulberry or wild cherry)... The 2nd nest will be up high... this way if the low nest gets taken out... the straggler/survivors just move to the up high nest... And they then proceed to build a 3rd nest elsewhere... Clever and Dangerous...

That's About right.... And you didn't know it was there... because 12 hours earlier.... It wasn't... They don't make a lot of racket... for the most part they're fairly quiet and stealthy... unless you just happen to be right next to the nest... you'd never hear em...
