  1. Was finally able to get out and do some detecting in a couple of old spots and a new spot with Luke. The 1 gram I got from the new spot at about 4 inches. YES.....lots of new ground to hunt! And the .1 I got from a old spot at 1 inch deep. Great day to be out in the peace and quite and find some gold Tom

  6. UPDATE ON CV19: it's been almost 10 months since I had the CV19 and some of it is still with me. About once or twice a week I start the cough again but one or two sprays of the throat spay stops it in it's tracks. Finally got my taste and smell back but in the months that have followed I've lost 17.7 lbs. I wasn't fat so the weight loss has been in my muscles.The Doc's here don't know how to stop the loss only to say eat more and lift weights. Saturday a couple here bought their first detector, a Minelab Gold Monster 1000. they brought it by my house

  7. Went out a couple days ago and shot a big boar. He was a whopper! Roasted him over mesquite today. This is what he looks like now. The meat just falls off the bone. It is delicious man! Seared over the fire and then wrapped up with some bacon on top to provide some fat. About 7 hours over the coals. Then I pour off the juice and make the sauce. I "pull" the meat and then pour the sauce back over the meat and let it all cool overnight. I use a little Claude's BBQ sauce and rub the meat with black pepper and red Chile before cooking. The sauce is the juices with

  9. We smoke the whole duck then eat it with a homemade wild berry sauce. Or we will breast them out and smoke them with bacon wrapped around the breast chunks. Or take a whole mallard breast, butterfly it, then fill it with jalapeno cream cheese and wrap with bacon. That was dinner 3 nights ago. Mmmm...

  10. We sponsor the whole MRDS database directly on the Land Matters servers. Nothing is missing from there. If you are trying to view the whole MRDS in Google Earth you can expect it to fail. The USGS discourages attempts to display the whole MRDS with Google and suggests you download and use only smaller areas. https://mrdata.usgs.gov/mrds/help.html That's one possibility. The other is that you suckered for the "new" MRDS map on the USGS website. The "New" map only shows selected features. Not sure who selected them but it's obviously not what you are looking for.

  11. My favorite way to cook wild ducks is to stuff them with apples and celery and slow roast them in the oven for a couple hours while basting them with beer, wine & whiskey. Then, about 1/2 hour before they are finished cooking I dump out the apples and celery and rinse the cavity with beer before basting them again and putting them back in the oven. Wild rice is a great side dish -- especially If you can get some real wild rice from Minnesota. Add a can of chicken broth to the wild rice when you cook it and add a stick of butter when it's done. If you don't want to go through all th

  12. I won't hunt with guys like these. It is always the same story. First they talk about plucking their duck all the time. Then they want you to watch them pluck their duck. Before long they are showing you pictures of guys plucking their ducks. Pretty soon they are wanting you to pluck their duck for them. I'm happy skinning the bird in the privacy of my own duckboat. Call me old fashioned I guess. Not to judge guys who are into that sort of thing. Im open minded and all. I just would rather hunt with my own crowd.

  13. Heads up. if you have research to do involving the BLM LR2000 you will need to do that before Thursday of this week. The BLM is saying they are going to close down the mining claims portion of the LR2000 this coming Thursday the 21st. The MLRS replacement for the LR2000 mining claims reporting system is supposed to go live on Monday the 25th on another website. The mining claims payment portal was closed down last Friday the 15th. You can't make a mining claim payment for 10 days until the 25th. If you mail in a payment it won't be processed until the 25th. Land Matters has adju

  16. I have been hunting ducks and geese for 32 years and have been a waterfowl guide for a big chunk of that. I have NEVER seen that!!!! Wow!! I just showed my 2 boys and they thought the same...WOW! To just the common duck hunter who goes out a few times a season, they might not see a genius here. But to those of us who clean ALOT every year, dang. New technique for sure. Thanks Slim!

  17. There's always the Yardbird Chicken Plucker(after scalding the bird real good to clean and soften up things). It looks lik a small washing machine ,built for spin cycle only, and full of rubber fingers that do the plucking. Looks like it's takes all of 5 seconds to do the job( for a chicken). Could be there are designs for duck with their many more feathers. Cabela's has a vid "How to pluck a duck" involving wax to get the feathers and down. "Can't make the "Tee" time, today, gotta wax my duck."

  18. We make pounds and pounds of goose jerky. We cut it thin on the meat slicer, let it cure in High Mountain jerky seasoning and then throw it in the dehydrator. If we cut it thin, its easier to find the pellets which leads up to less broken teeth haha. And the ol GoldBug2 is awesome for finding the steel shot too.

  19. Non-citizens are not allowed to hold mining claims. So if this "Chinese dude" has filed any claims they are not valid. I expect this fellow is not Chinese at all. He is probably as American as a ground beef taco.

Jeff and Gary ( Two Toe's ) are in search of bedrock outcroppings in the area of old Gold Rush workings. The Fortyniners worked this area during the California Gold Rush lets see what they missed !!!! Please Remember to always fill in your holes after digging SG 033

Even large stones will work there way out.. we recom

  34. Picking the whole duck really sucks!! But when we smoke them whole, we do it. Thats the only time we leave the skin on. The rest of our recipes we use, we just cut the meat from the bone.

  39. Hey, Toby If you are in the area, and all else fails, you might go up to the camp in Franconia wash, and talk to the folks there. Made a trip down there last winter, to guest-hunt with a detecting buddy who is a member. Gotta be a board member in the mix there, place was pretty full last winter, likely more so now. Cool place, but man, if 50 cal AP bullets were worth money, I'd be a wealthy man. πŸ‘ Regards, Kyle

  42. I’d say for the time spent building it the price is more than fair. To me it looks as if it will do the job intended for. Do you know the weight of the unit as the picture shows but without the battery? People like you thinking of ways to make our work in the field easy getting that yellow metal is what we need more of. I Thank You Chuck

  43. You should get yourself a good battery operated SW fluorescent mineral lamp and prospect for specimens. Arizona is a great state to look for them. There's roughly 10,000 collectors in the USA so that's not a small market and some of those specimens can go for $200 to $300 and up. Everyone searches for gold but I would bet you've walked over fluorescent "gold" without even knowing it.

  45. Made this slide out frame for a shower curtain. It slides in flush with my short rack on my shell, but you can easily modify it for a full-sized rack and put extra supports using a T connector: Its basically a 1/2” PVC pipe in a 1” pipe, the string keeps it from being pulled all the way out. The 1” pipe is secured to the rack using stainless steel zip ties. A shower curtain or awning top can be attached using eye hooks screwed into the corners and outer side of the frame, and hooks or magnets to attach it to the truck when in use, then fold and sto
