    Weekend Hunt on the Minnesota River

    I was in Minnesota this past weekend and spent several hours hunting around the river bank near a city park. I found a lot of modern trash, glass and old iron which didn't make the cut for photo's, but here are the keepers and the other interesting finds. These were silvers 97-101 for the year and my first time ever breaking the 100 mark!
