  1. Thanks guys, I live in Wisconsin so its hard to go there now. Should be in Zona now but with covid we stayed home this year, get to enjoy this balmy weather, it's warmed up since this afternoon its now 34 degrees and snowing. A friend sent in his dues and got back the stuff so [ stickers, club card ect.] I guess i'm good to go, thanks for the help. Good luck finding some nuggets this year, Toby
  2. Anybody got any info on the gold seekers club? I'm a member and have been trying to contact them about paying my dues, but the website won't come up or is down for at least a month.. Nobody answers the phone. Are they having problems, no longer exist? Any info would help. Thanks for any help or info, Toby
  3. Has anyone seen any out yet this year? It's to cold yet isn't it?
  4. Used to do the tooth picks and bacon on Mallard breast chunks then put them in a zip lock and pour a jug of Italian dressing in, let soak for a couple hours. Was really good on duck, don't know about dove. You do end up with some flames from the oil and bacon grease. Sure looks good in your pics.
  5. That fungus is also called tinder fungus, you can take the porous inside out of it and drop it in a concentrated solution of water and salt peter,let the water evaporate and it will catch a spark from a flint and steel and light right up. Way back before matches it was used to start fires, even before char cloth was used. It can also be used to carry an ember for long periods, like most of a day or more. Many native American women would do this when traveling to a different area to live and would have a camp fire in a hurry as soon as they stopped for the night. It's neat stuff and very useful.
  6. Any idea what caliber the mold is? Looks to be about a 45 or 50, but it's hard to tell on a picture. Way back when they they came in what we now would call strange sizes.
  7. Nice, how deep down was the deepest?
  8. Thanks for the reply 4meter, to bad you can't cut a stone out of them. I've seen some garnets before and after cutting pics and they look great. Still what you have is really neat.
  9. Is that a single garnet or a rock with many smaller garnets in it? Was this cut on a saw or formed sq. by nature? Can gem stones be cut out of that? Looks cool.
  10. Hi, new guy here, first post, long time lurker. I've wanted to give prospectjng a shot for along time, but living Wisconsin I don't have much of a chance to do that. But now the wife and I are retired and will be heading to Arizona with another couple for the month of January. We'll be staying in Lake Havasu area. From what I've found in some other posts in here most recommend joining a club to get started. My ?. Am I better off joining Havasu Gold Seekers club or the GPAA. I can't seem to find where the GPAA claims in Arizona are located and how far they are from Lake Havasu. Was hoping someone here could steer me in the right direction Thanks in advance for any advice. Bill Southern, what's the best time to contact you about a possible detector purchase?
