Default One hour permission yields the goods

Was able to get out for a short yard permission today. I called my buddy to see if he wanted to join me this afternoon for a few hours. He said he was already hunting. He had started one house this morning and found a wheat and three Indians and had just gone to the second house. He suggested I join the fun, so I headed over. Turns out, the guy who owns the house had a White's that he bought about six years ago that he'd never really used. We spent some time teaching him how to use it and showing him how we hunt with our Nox's. By the time I got down to some serious hunting, was only able to hunt for about an hour. That's okay, it was the most productive hour in a LONG time. Ended with 5 wheats, 2 silver coins, 1 silver religious medallion (given to the home owner), an Indian, and a V nickel (oldest coin). All of the goods were in a small area under two evergreen trees. What a great, short hunt! Enjoy the pics.

Yep, I'm very lucky with the Midwestern soil. These coins were all under an a couple of evergreens which also made the digging nice and easy with soft soil.

Well, I know there have been people with coins to drop in East Texas as long or longer than there have been people around here in Iowa. Keep reading and learning from the sight. As Tom in CA loves to point out, it's just like real estate, location...location...location. Good luck on your search!

Great hunt, that spot could use another few hours of detecting!

Thanks Mark, if they were all this easy there'd be no challenge to it.

You're right Z. That's why I was more than happy to give the Catholic jewelry to the homeowner to keep the relationship positive. It was a great exchange for everything else I brought home and the invite to go back any time.
