Welcome from Iowa! Maybe you’ll see hiluxyota in the Chicago River. Check him out on YouTube and you’ll be inspired to do some water hunting!

Hey welcome!! I'm also from Chicago and mainly hunt city parks here and the surrounding suburbs. That's a great starter machine! Good luck on your hunts!

Partly true. LOL I've found my fair share of bullets and some were interesting. But since Chicago is also kinda old, also found great stuff here as well.
