Default My wife sure is sneaky...

...so, my birthday was the other day and she bought me a Garrett carrot, a metal detecting book and hands me a piece of paper. I flip the paper over and this is what I see...

She then tells me that she buried 119 targets. I've found 21 so far

I asked her what she used to bury them and she points to my 31" Sampson. I'm gonna have to start hiding my shovels apparently.

The funny thing is that she's never went on a hunt with me, but she did an amazing job of not leaving a trace at all throughout our property.

By the way, we live on 3 acres, so it might take me a bit to find it all.
