Default 51st Hunt Of 2016 - Three Years Of Finds and Last Hunt Of 2016

With the holidays and whatnot coming up 2016 comes to a close for me.

I may sneak back out for one more but I doubt it.

Otherwise, My last digs of 2016 were a pocket watch chain (I think) and a wheatie

Anyway, I decided to look back at all of the relics and other things I have found at my primary hunting permission. I started hunting here in 2014 so this is a 3 year wrap up of the things I have found there so far. Finds are becoming more scarce, it still produces but at a slower pace.

Here is a photo and link to my YouTube video.

That is a very well put together video! I must admit I was shocked to hear YOU say you didn't know what the first target was. You are usually the guy with the ID!

Thanks Fellas

Took awhile to get out stuff and set it up to take a group photo..then put it all back. There's other stuff that's not in the picture but it's non-CIV so it didn't make the cut but I included it in the end of the video wrap up.
