Thread: First 2021 Hunt

    First 2021 Hunt

    Hunted a 1904 permission on my first day out this year. Two thimbles same hole. The larger one has a small "9" on it. The smaller one has some pretty vine type etchings. Looks like an old skate type barrette and a patriotic dangle.

    I'm jealous as I still have a foot of snow in my yard. Nice start to the season. WD
