Default shamefully posting #1 for the year

Well.......Haven't been able to hunt in a few weeks cus of the insanely cold temps and big snow dump on top of that.......
I have a fresh slate of vacation days to use so I took a day off and drove a few hours to get out of the snow.....
My first signal revealed the sad reality that the ground was still frozen rock hard......but , I refused to go back home with out silver.....
My first signal was an iffy 12-44ish at around 6-7......I used my hand shovel , my 4ft shovel with kick plate, a drill with 6 inch bit, and a small pick axe.....over 20 minutes later I popped out the coin.....Canadian penny

Those damned things always give me a borderline quarter signal and I just don't know why..........they get me a couple times every year.......

Just after dark I hung my head in shame and started swinging back towards the car ......someone up above was shaking their head and took some pity on me and got me over a shallow rosie ......at least the drive home was a bit less teary.......
350 mile trip for 4 coins........
that spot had given me a merc and a wash two weeks ago.....
oh well......its what we do.........
back to the research.........
