Default More silver today and a weeks worth of finds.

I closed out my 5 1/2 days of hunting in Texas Panhandle today and I ended up with a few more keepers. What a productive trip it was. Since I will not be coming back to this area again for some time, my intent was to hunt for wheats and silver only. I did not want to spend most of my time digging trash chasing nickles and low conductors.

I hunted 3 different parks and 1 school.
I'm not sure how many hours I hunted, maybe 50 or so, but, I hunted until I could not swing the coil anymore each day 🙂

The first 2 pictures are of today's hunt followed by the total's for the week. Thanks for stopping by and having a look.

Congrats on finding the crazy amount of silver! Also what is that coin with the large 2 under the walker?

Wow! What an awesome hunt!

I also hunt till I can't swing the detector anymore - but that's about 2 hours for me. LOL

Wow that's more silver in a week than I have detected in total.

What kind of places were you hunting? Like open to the public, or private permission? edit: never mind, you answered that in the first post!
