Default End of the year catch-up post - reached a HUGE milestone :D

Hey y'all! This is a catch-up of the last few hunts. There's one more hunt not shown cuz I got completely skunked, it was a hit-or-miss spot. But I watched a friend pull a sweet us boxplate, so definitely worth it.

I was bummed I didn't get to hunt the 5 day camp much at JGD, I really wanted to find my first Georgia teat bullet. But a friend of mine invited me to another spot where I might be able to dig one. Turns out I got into a little patch and found 13 haha. Only one button for the day, thought I might have had a Mississippi for a minute, but turned out to be just a little flower button.

The other two pics are from a buddy's land over in Stafford. He detects as well, and was able to put me on some good spots for lead. Which leads me to the milestone....

My 1000th bullet for 2016!! Found it New year's Eve with just hours to spare haha.

Happy new year everyone, and happy hunting in 2017!!

Right!? 1000 bullets! Where were you digging? at an old shooting range? You pulled more lead out of the earth this year than the Flint Water Dept! What? Too soon? Anyway, Great Work Toast!
