Punxsutawney Phil predicts an early spring

Well let's hope the rodent is right.  I would like to get out as soon as possible.  Don't mind doing research but I miss swinging the detector and finding all that loot.

Another winter storm approaching >{ >{, can't seem to get out of this pattern.  Only 3 days of hunting in Jan. and it's not looking good for Feb. anytime soon >:\.   I hope there is a thaw but I'm not counting on it and I hope the rodent doesn't see his shadow tomorrow so spring can come early and I can start swinging the detector again O0.

When metal detecting old sites that have been hunted over and over again, go back over the site in all metal mode. You would be surprised what your detector discriminates out.  I found my SLQ going back over a site I know I have hunted countless times along with other hunters.  I was surprised to find it where I did.
