  1. 12:30 PM and here in E. Idaho it's 76* at the house. They've finally started turning the flow down on the Snake river, and a few nice Browns were on the prowl. Caught two! One about 15", and one about 18" in an hour's time. A lady on the Klamath called two nights ago and said the Klamath has hardly started to drop at all yet. Guess I'll have to stick with fishing, if I can't get to the gold.
  2. Well, the general consensus is........everybody loves the fall! What's not to love?
  3. Fall is the season I always look forward to the most. We have our State fair start on Labor day weekend, and it's right here in my little farming town. FAIR FOOD! Fishing begins to pick up, and the really big Bows, and Browns come on the bite in the Snake river! Time to gas up the jet boat! NFL football begins. The pennant races heat up! HUNTING SEASON BEGINS! I get to take the Benelli out for opening of dove season. I'll make a lot of noise, kill a few unlucky doves, and tune up for the waterfowl hunts later on! Of course, ALL the best holidays are just ahead! Yeah! I'd trade all the rest for fall.
  4. By the looks of the plume in video, they musta been dropping a cluster of MOABs, if it was only ordinance.
  5. Watch out all you So. California nugget shooters. This just happened! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7X9-pV67DvU&feature=player_embedded
  6. Had a long chat with the young fish and game cop there on the Klamath river one afternoon, and asked about 'gravity dredging'. He stated that he "would not site" anyone for gravity siphoning. It "is not" against the law!
  7. Alright! Three weeks ago I was on the Klamath river driving between Seiad valley and Happy Camp, and coming around a corner there lay a dead doe in a pull out that had been hit by a car. Perched on top of her was a Bald Eagle, wings spread wide, fending off a very brave Raven he musta just ran off the kill. On seeing me they both went airbourne, the Raven into the trees but the Eagle straight at the truck. I had to hit the brakes as my whole window filled up with Bald Eagle at ten feet for an instant! He flew straight up the road, just ahead of the truck for maybe ten yards before he put himself in a tight turn and then up into the trees! If you drive into the Klamath river valley, watch out for deer. The place is just crazy with 'em.
  8. Those who may be among our most ardent oppressors in the mining arena have agendas far more sinister than barring our recovery of minerals. Their evil goes to depths almost unimaginable; "I suspect that eradicating small pox was wrong. It played an important part in balancing ecosystems." - John Davis, editor of Earth First! "The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing." - Christopher Manes, Earth First! "Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing." - David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club The 'Green' agenda has "NO" place for you. You are a pest! http://www.green-agenda.com/deepecology.html
  9. To think, there may have even been some Civil War veterans in that film. Maybe one or two original '49ers trundling along as well. That was the age of the big shift, from technology that had existed for thousands of years, horse/cart to motorized transportation! Both caught in the frame of this film. Some of the younger people there may even have lived long enough to sit in front of their TVs and watch the first men on the Moon! What must they have thought?
  10. Take it from a three time survivor, gold hunting or anything outdoors ain't nothing but good! Work hard.....rest well!
  11. I'm seeing gold as far as the fifth riffle down the sluice box. Was there any below that? The third, forth, and fifth seem to have nearly equal amounts, and some of those amounts look kinda chunky! Have you panned any tailings to see if any of the finer gold is slipping past the riffles? Is that a MacKirk sluice?
  12. At $1547.80 per oz, gold has climbed over $90 per oz since this thread started on April 5th. Less than a month. Correction! as of a couple of hours later...$1560.40 per oz. Over $100.00 in a month.
