    Bruce's Finds for 2009

    Well 2009 was very good to me and the season is over. I hunted every chance I could and learned alot. I had so much fun detecting and have many many memories from this past year. The pleasure I get from this hobby is beyond words.. I tripled my finds in Silver coins, Gold and Silver rings and Wheaties from 2008. Met up with a few fellow members for some good hunting. After getting my DFX I got on a roll.. Picked up an E-Trac but too late in the season. Here's some pics of my years finds. Can't wait for 2010! Merry Christmas everyone!

    You had a fantastic year!! I love the rings! I am really envious of all those ring and jewelry finds, and great silver coins too. Next year should be a fun one too with the e-trac thumbsup01 Thanks for sharing!

    Wow that's a lot of loot. You're very good at organizing it based on your pictures. I couldn't tell you what day I found something... i have a hard enough time remember where I found things lol. Maybe I should take more notes
