Metal detecting group hunt in the woods

This past Sunday I was invited out to a group metal detecting hunt out in the woods not far from my home. When I pulled up I was happily surprised to see that maybe 10 or so of my local detecting buddies were there waiting for me. We chit chatted for a few minutes then we were off. We walked down an old trail for about a quarter mile then we all began metal detecting. Earlier in the week 2 of my friends had found some SLQ quarters and a few silver dimes and they felt that it would be a great place to get everyone out and give it a once over.

Right off the bat 2 of my friends found some wheat pennies(1911 & 1924, so that got everybody's hopes up for a great site. I was just finding old shotgun shells and garbage so I decided to wander off and see what I could find. We were out metal detecting for about 5 hours then I called it quits, I did however manage to find 9 old coins. The day wound up producing a few wheat pennies, a few silver Mercury dimes, a sterling silver spoon, and some other old relics. It was a great day out detecting in the woods with my friends and I had a blast. Be sure to watch my vid to see what I found.

Seem's I'm in a blood feud with a non-silver quarter, we'll see who comes out on top!!!! Bring it on little coin!!! Maybe I'll toss him out so some metal detector can find him.

Bottle digging in the river

My metal detecting buddy called me up and asked if I would like to go jump in our local river and hunt for some old bottles, I said ok lets do it!!! No my river isn't some wonderful place, its a smelly, stagnant, polluted, sorry excuse of a river. I knew people have been going to it for generations so I knew it had some old antique bottles for us if we detected long enough. We were in the water for about 3.5hrs and found lots of bottles, sadly a ton of them were new ones. I was very happy with the bottles that we found and I can't wait to jump back in!!! On a side note, I want to go back sometime and metal detect the heck out of that place too and get all the old coins!!! Happy hunting...

the pix is of a few of my bottles I found.

4.5hr metal detecting hunt - gold, silver, & relics

Well this morning I metup with 3 of my metal detecting buddies for a short hunt, it was already super hot by 9am so we knew it was just going to be for a few hours. Well once we got to our site we split up almost instantly and within 10min I couldn't see anybody else. I have detected this site several times before so I headed over to a super trashy area where I pulled several silver coins out of in the past but this time around I only found 4 what pennies. I didn't know what my buddies found until the very end of the hunt and I wish I was around when they made some of there finds so I could of video taped them as they came out of the ground. All in all it was a great metal detecting hunt and we recovered a lot of old coins and relics. Happy Hunting everyone!!!
