    We use to live in Columbia right off hwy49, just north of Sonora. I traveled hwy49 all the time when I worked at a mine in Copperopolis. But dang!! I don't remember the corners being so smooth. lol

    Here's a question

    Thanks for the replys guys. Yeah, when I find a nugget I always look at it as a .5, 1, 3 or 5 DWT. lol I might have to teach this ol-dog a new trick (grams) I can see myself already breaking out the calucator until I get it. Better yet, I'll just switch the scale over and familiarize myself with both.

    Your Best Non Nugget find?

    Some of my favorite finds are what the OleTimers left behind. It's a good reminder of how hard they had to work at getting the gold.

    I have some down time right now so I thought that I woulkd take a look into some rocks that I had found out detecting some time ago. I was surprised by nice little nuggets after I had disolved the quartz off them. One of these days I'll figure out how to take sharp in focus pics with my camera.

    My boy got his deer today.

    Hey Dan, Been pretty busy over this way. Replaced all the windows in the home this summer, which intailed all new trim inside -n- out and then momma wanted new shades and blinds, soooo new shades & blinds are up too (gotta keep momma happy right!!! ) I 'did' have a buck tag for area 6 this year but had to give it back due to needing surgery on my shoulder. I had a complete tear in my rotorcuff and other issues in there as well. Surgery was 10/26, so I'm recovery mode now... PT starts in Dec., so I'm off work for a while. It's a good thing that the freezer is still stocked up from last years buck, elk & pig... Nugget hunting has been awesome!! That's how I tore-up my shoulder... digging up all those deep nuggies the Zed has been finding!!! (JOKE)!! I haven't been able to get out as much as I would of liked. My picking arm has been jacked up for a while, so the only au found lately has been tied up in a few little rocks that beeped but I never did anything with. Now that I have down time, I checked em out and got a couple little nice species.. I'll post a pic, but being down one arm sucks. All the little things are hard to do now. How bout you? Still work-in the claim? Glad to hear your daughter was able to connect on a doe, 308 yrds is a good poke...She'll be ready for the big buck next year. Good to hear from you too.. Take care bud...

    First bucks are always awesome and way to stick to it through the archery & muzzleloader season. I've never been a horn hunter. . . so I'd say thats a dandy buck!!! Good job Dan. . . Congrats to you and ur boys
