I avoid woods hunting because I canít find anything but ticks, poison oak, beer cans and shotgun head stamps. It blows my mind seeing people actually finding coins in the woods.

Amazing to think that I lead tours @ places, here in CA, that are that old. And are "historic museum monuments". But back east: People have houses and barns that old, and think nothing of it !!

No it was on the hill behind my house which was built in the 60s. There has been history here from the civil war though.

Yup, that place reeks of history. The good targets will likely be very deep so bring the big coil and shovel. Looking forward to seeing what you find there.

Honestly, it doesn't look that overgrown to me. Swinging in knee high weeds or plowing through undergrowth in the woods is all I know. I'd hit it right now as is....

Those houses look like a great place to hunt...fire up your weedeater and get a long extension cord for your window unit air conditioner

Oh man does that look like an amazing permission. Even if nothing much came out, that is a lovely spot!
Congrats on the permission and best of luck there in the winter!

Besides the deep thick grass and the small tree stubbles itís a real pain to get the coil 8Ē off the ground

The permission looks to be great Vic but you may have to mow it before you can detect it. I did that last year on the permission that I dug my one and only Capped Bust Dime on. Trapper

Congrats on an awesome permission man!!! No doubt you will pull the goods out of there!!! We are running into the same issues with the vegetation being to long on some of our most promising sites.

Looks like some fun spots and hopefully do well when the grass is short.
