Thumbs up Beginners luck

Iíve had a property on my list that i was hoping to hunt because my wife had past relatives who owned it at one point. The property recently sold and theyve been working around the old house and barn, but not living there. I pass it all the time watching for someone to be there and practicing how Iíll ask in my head. Finally they were there working yesterday morning. I stopped and one of the guys was the father of the brothers who bought the place. Theyíre planning on restoration of the farm, but didnt have much background info on the property. All I had to do was show him a picture of the house from the early 30ís that my wife had and I was in! He was tickled that i had that and told me he was disappointed I wasnt there last fall when they demoíd 7 other old house foundations that were on the backside of the property. 110 acres of 1860ís farm. I had a fun 1st hunt there just around the main house. Got my first 19?7 wheat. I printed the picture of the house i had and got a cheap frame for it from Walmart and gave to the owner as a thank you. I think I have my work cut out. Great day, and great feeling to hear a yes on my 1st permission.

Nifty way to get a permission!
Maybe I'll have to try old photos too.

Went by after work yesterday and poked around where one of the old house foundations was located. Came up with 3 roached out wheats, 1 small button, and the remains of a 1950ís Hubley cap gun. Plus the usual junk, radiator cap, battery terminal connector, top of a power steering fluid can (mustíve been where they used to park?).

Good pix. I like the on-site pix, so that you can feel/see the environment.

In the 2nd pic from the top, that thing in the middle with the 2 tabs looks like part of an old radio, where you plug in earphones. You can see the solder points on the left sides.

Looks like a good site.

Is that a blasting cap in the middle of the first post finds?

That's a great old place. The kind of permission you can hunt literally for years.
Good luck

I hope not! Iíll hit it with a hammer, just to be sure. I think itís a temp sensor from a newer oven.
