Gotta love those bees!

Recommended Posts

Nothing like getting a deep target and removing 8-10” of dirt with the target still being deeper. The temperature was around 100 degrees outside and I was starting to sweat. Another 3-4 scrapes  at the hole with my pick and the target was now moved and ready for recovery. The nugget was in my scoop and out of the ground, all mine! All of a sudden I felt a whack to the back of my neck. Now the nugget was back in the hole with my scoop and my neck was burning and throbbing. All I could think about is the picture of Bill Southern with all the swelling from the bee sting to the face he posted a while back. A few seconds later two or three buddies of the first bee decided it would be fun to join in with the mayhem. It is a good thing I was down in a wash where where no one could see all the commotion. I also learned the GPZ coil makes a great bee swatter! Once the dust settled and I had the nugget safely back in my truck it turned out to be .79 grams the other nugget from earlier in the day weighed  .40 grams.

Those bees are a serious danger . more danger than snakes and scorpions in my opinion.

Hi Dave it was so great to see Terry find that chunk of gold. But I know the real gold hunter that has found ten times that much gold and so do you!😀 I would rank you as one of the top Gold and meteorite hunters in the Southwest!
