Well it had to come sometime but the snow has finally arrived. Along with the wind it will be a lousy day and even a more lousy of a day to hunt. But I will keep an eye out for an opening and hopefully get a chance to metal detect. This could be the end of the hunts this year.

I started out by trying a new spot which ended up not too promising. Then I went to try another location then it started to rain. So on my way home the rain had stopped and I was by a area I've hit before finding wheat pennies - figured why not. Glad I did. I found a wheat and a couple memorials which surprised me because they were a few inches down. Then I got a high hit - 88 or .50 cents - another piece of metal, but I had to dig it - then I saw a round silver thing then realized it was a coin. My first walker half about 5 inches down. Not sure of the date - it's really worn. Then I really hit the area hard - I did manage a ring - heavy but no marking inside. So it turned out to be a good hunt after all.

I met T in the morning and we tried the woods where I found the token and IH. Nothing doing yesterday - just a bunch of swinging and no hits. T had leave so I tried some different woods - did find some clad .60 cents and junk. I'm not keeping track of the clad total for the rest of the year - my goal of $300 is well short anyway. I plan to keep hitting the woods and hopefully find some 1800 silver( I know it's out there, just got to find it) - now that I've got the taste of finding the older coins - I'll stick to the woods until the spring and when it gets too bad to hunt them it's back to the schools and parks. I plan on some road trips too.
