Default hunting while in a slump

I'm in a slump, I hunted hard, the gaudy ring is a pleasant find as its 925 stamped but not much luck to be had for the multi Kruzer today. The 22 bullet drove me a bit batty as I couldn't locate it all that well.Name:  DSC04243.jpg

I thought the same thing: Parts of that ring look like gold. Cool looking agate, anyway. I'd call that a slump breaker! I know what you mean about those darn little 22 or smaller bullets. Sometimes hard to find in the dirt.

Congrats on the silver ring. I am in a horrible slump directly related to lack of good permissions right now. I think it has been three weeks since a found a silver coin!

Slump MDing any day is better than a jab in the eye with a sharp stick.

Any ring is a good find. I'd happily take that kind of "slump"
