  1. All I can do is shake my head sometimes. I'll go out day after day, hiking all over the hills, just "sure" the gold must be over the next ridge, if I just try a little harder. Haven't found anything yet, using that method. Then I decide to give my back a break for a day, and just drive around looking. I get a random urge to hunt a wash, pull over, jump out, and dig a nice specimen within 300ft of my rig. I'd call it chance, but this is the third time it's happened in a year. Go figure. Listen to the little voice in your head, I guess👍 I know exactly where I will be hunting

  2. 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

  4. I have a couple claims on the Domingo. Some areas on the north end have been hammered, there's even a couple miners cabins built there. Funny how I can always find the remains of chicken coops where miners lived. The south end of the claims show little signs of being worked. Plus there's our technological advantage, mostly the generator and wet vac (yes I'm always finding old, old worn out brooms where there's been placer mining in the hills). But comparing a broom to a shop vac really is no comparison at all. Even after the rains this week put a damper on the dry washing, I was st

  5. 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. Thanks! Another odd part of the puzzle around here, is where the gold is found. Under the overburden, but not in ancient gravel, bedrock, or clay. I "think" there was a flash flood or two here, in the last hundred years, that carried these pieces into the washes. A friend and I have dug down, and sampled the old gravel in a couple of these washes, and panned them out, without finding a speck of gold. The wash I found this piece in had been heavily placered. Either they missed it, or it rolled off the screen on an old drywasher. Funniest of all, was a deep detector hole, no

  8. My son gave me this sweet little Glock 19 for Christmas. A nice Bianchi holster and a bucket full of mags too. I only had a few rounds for it and couldn't find any factory ammo on the shelves. So I ordered a few plated bullets and scavenged a bunch of brass. You cant buy small pistol primers but I have thousands of small rifle primers. They seem to work just peachy. I traded a buddy for a nice set of dies and found a pound of Red Dot that I have had laying around for 30 years. I worked up a load for it over the last week. After 150 rounds I got my load just right and my p

  13. I use big, big buckets, I have free sources for them. The tall chlorine buckets come with lids making them ideal for carrying water too. Then I have these tough, large buckets we use that had a mineral molasses mixture for the livestock. They're nearly indestructible and must hold 7 gallons, easy. The days of filling these buckets up to the brim is past for me, I'd kill myself. I carry the dirt or when drywashing; heavies, back to the truck in ammo cans. I'm going to have to find smaller cans too, the 20mm can holds around 14-15 gallons and is a real nut cracker. Good info, guy

  18. A few ways to do this. Mylandmatters.org or land.az.gov is another. http://gis.azland.gov/webapps/parcel/?loc=-112.3674,33.8342,10&layers=3,1,0 Both you turn on layers to see if its private property or BLM. My land matters is a little better because there’s more layers to turn on. THere’s some public lands that are no go for prospecting like national monuments and wilderness areas, and that site displays it.

  20. Just snooping around in a new area, not expecting much, when I stumbled into this lump right in the middle of the wash. Not quite an overload signal on the 4500, but really loud. I am pretty sure a Walmart $99 detector would have found it. Maybe 6" down, and in the most obvious spot in the wash. I have no idea how the last 50 guys to walk up this wash missed it, but I'll take it! Most of the specimen is worn somewhat smooth, but one side clearly broke off something larger. The edge is so sharp and fragile that I broke a tiny piece of gold off with my tounge giving it the mouth-wash out of

  22. I hear ya man. Yesterday I climbed over a barbed wire fence. I got to the top with one leg over each side, achieving that perfect balance. I sat there for a minute to think about the predicament I was in. Looking down at the 1-1/2 foot fall was more than my mind could take. Not something I`d want to experience again. I`m glad you highlighted the dangers of this hobby.

  23. The interior is way too light in color for typical basalt, although leucobasalt can be very light in color. Achondrite all the way...IF it is indeed a meteorite...expert analysis is required for that determination.

  28. Thought I would share a pic of the Sea Bass we caught last October in SF Bay. I wanted to go for Halibut but the captain said they were already starting to head out to the ocean and instead recommended we go for Sea Bass. Glad we took his recommendation! Mine is the one on the right, 43" long.

  29. 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

  30. 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.

  32. 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...

  33. 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.

  37. No. Uses places like RRPC to learn how to mine then go prospecting for a claim of your own. But don’t think you’ll get one to two grams a day consistently off your claim. In the whole state of Arizona there’s perhaps five people earning their living consistently off small time mining. Don’t think you’ll be #6. The Simple gold was found by the Spanish and early prospectors from when Arizona was just a territory. Pauline Weaver discovering huge gold nuggets on rich hill and the nearby potato patch with gold nuggets that size. After that, the easy gold was cleaned up over the n

OK, this topic is locked, sorry Slim but you turned your own topic into politics in your second, third and this quoted post, politics as we know isn't allowed on the forum,...but if what started as a discussion/information sharing on land use which is allowed had remained on topic I wouldn't have to lock it

  43. To be honest, I lived out west years ago when there were still plenty of undiscovered patches to be found...and find some I did. Things are a little different these days with all the hunting pressure over the years since. I'm convinced there's still some patches to be found but in very remote areas where very few people (if any) have been before.

  45. 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!

  48. I apologize for this taking so long, but I got tied up with the holidays, work inbetween and not remembering my login info for Tech support. But a help request has been done and now just waiting on Invision Tech Support to find the issue, I'm sure the holidays are also affecting things on their end.
