I knew right away where they were hunting so I invited myself to some of the gold Its a quality maker... surprised me with its weight 6.9 grams... found some silver as well and the 3 ringer was a nice score... I also like the knife...




My camera died before the holidays but I hadn't hunted so I had nothing to show anyway... I borrowed my wife's phone to take the pictures...

I never take my camera or if I owned a GoPro for this very reason... by the landmarks they posted it was easy to see where they hunted
Nice recovery Craigy!! I didn't know you had a three ringer? Tell the wifey her phone camera sucks and don't tell me her response.

Mark... take your time getting better... I will do my best to clear the beaches of the pesky gold and silver so you don't have to worry about digging it

You think her phone sucks? Mine doesn't have enough memory to even attempt a picture... So today Angel had his GoPro on and it was facing straight down

Took the skunk today... a couple of wheats and a buffalo nickel...

Craig, Glad 2017 got off to good start. Hope you find many, many more.

I sure miss playing but have some great memories to reflect on.

Not my rocks... the rocks are the guy who posted a video on you tube and I watched and knew right away where that beach was and decided to help myself to a find or two... what sucked was my gold was very first target..

One more thing... just remember you have a hockey puck on the end of your stick and I have skullies
