    Thought I would try something new (not)

    Yes I went back to the golf course.

    Got a couple more merc's - 1936 and 1939. The 1936 was captured on the way back to the car. Managed another wheat - 1945.

    Got a couple more tack buckles and I also put up a picture of my bucket of buckles.

    A hem weight, what I think is a gas valve and some other doodads.

    Thanks for reading and everyone stay safe.

    I would be hard to resist going back to a site that keeps giving up silver like that! It seems that you are still getting one or two almost every time.

    More to add to your total! Nice going, Al!

    Great work Al. I would continue going there. The grass is greener on a golf course.

    I will continue but I have to say that the green grass has been replaced with dark dirt (mostly)

    I was envisioning you moving through waist high grass. Did the grass die, or did they bring in dirt?

    Al, do you ever switch it up and hunt there with different machines? I think you'd find even more stuff doing that.

    what grass is left is getting tall but the logging has torn up the area so a lot of dirt

    Dave, if I had another machine I would try that. My V3i has multiple frequencies that I can operate under though.

    Nice finds, a lot of nice relics as well. All that I have been hunting tis year are places I've been too multiple times. Some times those places are more rewarding. WD

    How many silvers total from the golf course to date Al? I’m guessing around 60. And a million buckles of course!
