Default The Bullet Rocks...

I grabbed the Ex II on this cold and windy morning and headed out to hunt the beach, the only place not covered in snow...at least the sun was shining The latest storm did nothing but pile sand on the slopes and after like 90 minutes of walking, finding only a squaretab and single house penny I came across a small patch of decent sized rocks sticking out from the sand that I'd never seen before and hit a wheat penny right off I got 2 hours in of digging deep targets around those rocks before the tide came up and ran me off... All the digs...got a dozen bullets which gave a name to this place 14 cents in clad, some aluminum and other scrap, 8 1/2 wheats, a 1934 Buffalo and silvers #8 and #9 Merc and a Rosie Definitely some older sand that hopefully won't get covered over before I can get back to it...until the next outing, thanks for the looks and Happy Hunting!

a cold day to hunt. I can not seem to get motivated to go out and freeze my butt off for a few pennies. Where is the gold?

Dan, finding silver and a few pennies beats sitting around watching snow slowly melt The gold will show up eventually...

Well, he got 2 silvers...we have all froze our butts off for a lot less than that! Gold is a Cruel Mistress...
