Default First digs of 2020 A big bucketlister!

Hey everyone, was able to get out for a couple short hunts this past week and today. Loving the new simplex btw, it is treating me very well, and it's just fun to use! Some of these finds were pretty darn deep too. The half was about 8" and didn't even give a VDI. Just a nice deep squeak, it's also my first big Ben believe it or not. The KG 2 was a nice surprise from a city park. Not sure what the coin is next to it, very thin, but could be an early half cent/ half penny. Finally got my old gold from barber park too! It was smashed up and broken, but tests good for 14K. Things will be slowing down for me here for a bit. It's going to get cold, and then it's time to hit the ice. I should get a couple more hunts in before then though, if anything shows up, I'll let y'all know. Good luck out there, and happy hunting!

Congrats on a very productive hunt and the bucket lister. It took me 37 years to cross that one off the list…..and by coincidence mine was also a 1957. Good luck next time out.

Jeff... I’m jealous. As Tom on the left coast would say, “sick...sick...sick”.
Couldn’t take advantage of the warmer weather last weekend myself due to a shoulder injury from a trip & fall while walking the dog

Congrats on an awesome hunt.

Big Ben on YOUR bucketlist?! Based on your report outs, it seems like you may have trouble finding "newer" dirt...haha

Great finds as usual!
