  1. My favorite boots to date are the Red HEad bone-dry snake boots. I get them from bass pro when they go on sale from 89$ from 139$. They are very light weight, super breathable and wear like tennis shoes once broken in. I cut the zippers off and use velcro for detecting. Snake protection is an absolute "must" for me, not just for protection but for a peice of mind getting into nasty, thick terrain when out solo. As for the 5.11s, they're good but no where near as comfortable IMO. Not to mention our fire dept. just switched contracts to get away from those boots as too many complaints were comin
  2. Right on Bill, good luck out there. I finally scored a keene 151 and the 25" spiral concentrator wheel to top it off. Got a killer deal at the gold show. Unfortunatly Its gonna have to sit in my garage till i get back from a 3 week school in texas. On the plus side, ill be fishing OH Ivie the next 3 weekends.. hopefully ill have some fat bass to post in the fishing section. The lake is producing the biggest bass in the country right now. Im bringing 65lb braid, gopro headcam and a clean pair of shorts. Landon
  3. The only thing im getting tired of is cleaning the drool off my keyboard... keep them beauties comin'
  4. Hey guys, for those who dont know.. Backpage.com is similar to craigslist but seems to have more of an outdoorsman crowd, and they allow gun sales. It hasnt caught on everywhere yet but is growing fast. Just like craigslist you start by going to your local add. Las vegas "sports equip." section alone has probably 15-20 gun related posts per day. Pretty neat site, lots of deals...thought id share. Landon
  5. Steve, yes these are obsidian. The ground in the area is littered with shards of it. The area north of st george ut (veyo, pinto, gunlock, newcastle) has a lot of volcanic remains. They didnt have to go far to get their material. Ive had many days where ive found 20 plus in a day, but most or all have been chipped off or broken. Id say 1 in 20 is completely intact. Ive heard from multiple sources that the real old arrowheads are propable from the anasazi indians that could date back thousands of years. Based on how many i come across i would imagine the area had a dense population relatively
  6. Hey, thought id share a few finds. These two where found within 15 ft of each other in southwester Utah. These two i kept, but have photo'd and put down atleast 20 others this past yr. If only my nack for finding arrowheads would leak over into my gold game id be alrght. Enjoy.. Landon
  7. Just found this subforum. Finally somewhere i can post results!..lol Had a few random pics on my phone from shorts trips outside of vegas. The one with the tape is from Dacey Res. at Wayne kirch (sunnyside) just north of vegas. The other was ice fishing minersville res. located just east of beaver Ut. Like most fisheries we usualy catch stockers from 10-17 inches but do occasionally pull nicer sizes out. Enjoy Landon
  8. Hey Kevin, youve came to the right place! Your detector will work, but will not penetrate to the depths most "gold" specific detector will do. That being said, put the odds in your favor. Target shallow areas, exposed bedrock is a good start. Go where gold has been found. Take a rake and locate drywash piles also. These are piles left behind by people using drywashers. You can youtube to see what to look for. If you find piles that are intact theres a good chance they havent been thoroughly detected. If there is gold left, once it is raked youll have only inches to detect and you could get a
  9. Adam, For one, I feel you! im very sick aswell. I just had my first son, who is amazing by the way.. but it has had me out of the game for a bit. Im used to being out every other weekend. Ive settled with the gold porn on these forums to get my fix. in the next few months, once hes a few more months old, ill be back at it again. Dont give up, gold will show up. Every trip counts! Continue to learn.. forums, books etc. Utah does have gold! Ive seen it. i plan on spending a lot of time in your area. i have land in enterprise and make the trip from vegas as much as possible. my past trips have b
  10. Great Finds Adam! Cool pic of the Gila Monster too, ive always wanted to see one in the wild. Ill be doing 4 days in a new location starting thursday.. hopefully ill have some nug pics to post soon. Landon
  11. Im lookin foward to it..cant come soon enough. Frank c, ill be sure to stop by and say hello to you and Bunk. Congrats on the recent finds also! Landon
  12. Im not as familiar with Franconia, but as for gold basin.. I would say the odds are with you to pull atleast one if your swinging all day. Probably more if your lucky.. still no guarantees. Either way, you always have vegas..the trip wouldnt be a complete loss. Landon
  13. Patrick, it was a pleasure meeting you. thank you again for the footprints/internet research tips. Good stuff.. Landon
  14. Sounds great Steve.. We are actually planning a trip northbound late april, ill keep you posted. Hopefully Austin can come too, chasin snakes and lizards is something ill never grow out of. ill txt you my info.. landon
  15. Nice meeting you and your boy Steve. I was trying to get your attention as you pulled away early that morning. I didn't notice you only had one detector until you quaded by.. we had an extra gmt you could've used so you both could swing something. Glad to hear you'll had a good time.. next time we meet up the feel free to use it anytime. Landon
