    Last Hunt of 2019 & First Hunts of 2020

    Sorry I haven't posted in a while, the last couple of months have been quite busy for me.

    2020 has been a little rough for us. Our first hunt we started at 9:00 in the morning and didn't turn our machines on until after 1:00 in the afternoon. we drove south hoping to find a spot where there was no snow on the ground. I think maybe we a little to eager to get in our first hunt of the year. We finally found a yard and got a yes!! My first silver of the year was a 1937 merc followed by a rosie.

    Still a good start to the year Don. I'd rather start slower than expected and finish stronger through the year than vice versa!

    Vermont relic hunting, one swing at a time.
