    Another Trip to the 1833 Cabin Site

    Saturday morning we headed out for another 5 hour hunt at the cabin site. It had rained for the past three days, but the field was surprisingly not bad at all. Probably due to the sloping hill that the cabin was built on. We took a couple of local friends out there with us this time, Tom (Hiluxyota) and Mark.

    We all did very well and together we dug another 32 buttons. Thats 77 total for the last 3 hunts!!!
    I dug 8 buttons, one of which was another 1820s silver plated militia button. I have found one on each hunt. This one was the best so far!
