Default Walker, Trifecta & a Red Cent Highlight Week Two

Got out for five hunts this week. The first last Sunday with Dewsweeper at my side I dug a dime trifecta along with a Walker half. The Barber Dime was maybe a foot away from the half and really had so odd numbers and strange sounds. as there was a cog key above them and almost center between them. Really clad I didn't pass on these targets. Had a couple of mid week hunts trough the snow. Digging really became as huge mess. The last hunt, today gave me 4 Merc's and a Red Cent. Finished the week with 15 Silvers, not as good as last week but i'm very happy with it. Trapper

The Red Cent is real. A surprise at 8 inches, I thought I was digging a Wheat. I think somebody had to much time on their hands and painted it. Trapper

Thatís looking like a tuning key for a drum set there Trapper. I know this,man!
I guess itís going to get comical from here on out,if youíre up to the mid 30s already I can see 500 this season. Whatís the most someone has dug in a year since 2000? Back in the day I could see huge numbers but nothing like youíre gonna do recently. I canít believe you donít have an Equinox yet!
Congrats on more shininess,itís great itís going as planned for you!

31 as of today Kevin. Raphis (Dan) a couple of years back went over a thousand in one year. I don't think I am in that league and even 500 would be big stretch. Not all is going as planned yet. Have not even started on the permissions yet. No Equinox in my plans as of yet. All except the first hunt has been with the 3030 and the 17" coil.

Only 14 this week Jason, number 15 was the Sterling Charm. This last two weeks its like I'm walking in your shoes. Of course without the marbles and I still have a long way to go when it comes to digging Wheat's. Really looking forward to week three with at least 2 new locations for me to hunt. Trapper

Congradulations on the many saves buddy. And on your second half of the year . Another moment in time I will not forget 😎

Looking forward to the extra hour of sunshine after work to save a couple here and there.
Great week Trap👍 And a solid pile of clad also👍

Mud I think the retirement agrees with me, not as sure with the wife yet. i don't think 5 hunts a week fits her schedule.

Appreciate your response E-Trac. I spent a lot of Winter looking for some likely spots that might produce. So far its been pretty good.

Thanks Dew, If I reported it after every hunt I would not have as much time to hunt. Just can't let that happen. Suppose to be good temps all week so I'm hoping for the best. Got a couple of new sites to check out today. I know I'll be going back to the one I hit yesterday. Glad the extra hour will allow you the extra hunt time.

Thank you Eddy, Your right at least for me. Silver is the goal that makes it run. Trapper
