  1. Thanks for that! Pretty much confirmed what I "felt" about those coils without an actual test? I never use the large coil anymore it seems....
  2. people are always finding another one of my secret spots.....
  3. Here's the '83 that I'm in the process of adding a flat fender, spring solo, and a peanut tank to be mounted "Frisco" style.....
  4. Anybody into old Harleys? I currently have 3 old timey choppers, all rigids. Bikes are '39 knuckle, S&S 93" generator shovel squeezed into '54 frame, and an '83 shovel. Black bike is the '54 that's been rode from my home in Montana to all states west of the Mississippi and also TN, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Yellow knucklehead scenic is on a trip through North Cascades in Washington on way to coast and the knuckle has been all over Washington, Idaho, and Montana. No pic of the '83 shovel. Don't ride near as much as I used to.....getting old and tired but still get out a little. Hope these bring back some memories to a few...
  5. Nice pics...nice gold!!! I noticed some pvc on the front of your SDC...would that be a mod you made for a stand?? I just bought an SDC and haven't had a chance to get out with it yet (snow) but it looks like the machine will have a hard time standing upright or level without some sort of homemade stand??? thanks...
  6. HATE the skunk so congrats on the bit. The rake is your friend.....
  7. I got my copy yesterday and was quite impressed! I was expecting more of the "low and slow"...."coil to the soil" type stuff but this book leans heavy towards geological hows and whys with plenty of color pics to help a guy "read the ground" better to hopefully choose more likely locations for the yellow. He brushes on different tailings types and how you might hunt them, things to avoid and things to look for, and much more, etc. Well done Reese!!!! On a personal note....Reese, it was cool to see some very familiar spots, Andys' nugget again, and I got a second laugh reading the hornet story again...it brought back the memories of that moment and I laughed out loud. Good luck on the next book...I look forward to it!!!!

  9. someone mentioned something about somebodys sister..... then a chair flew across the room.... someone grabbed a pool que and here we are? Nothing like a good internet brawl! I have nothing constructive to add (just trying to stir the bucket a bit)…...
  10. Got another bit and this specimen from same area......
  11. Sun was out today so I headed out for 2 1/2-3 hrs but the sun never got over the mountain and my feet froze out. Dredge piles gave up this .800 gram little noogie!!!
  12. I have the same problem...… EVERYONE is always asking me if I'm a movie star...?????
  13. small world.....gotta sister in Aiken...…….
  14. Pretty much done for this year. We've had snow twice already and it's hitting the teens at night. Last season I got 106 bits for just under an ounce and this year I only detected 40 bits for just over an ounce so an improvement over my 1st season! 18 bits from Montana and 22 bits from Idaho. FULL DISCLOSURE: 1 gram of the tiniest bits came from crack scratching/panning in the creek. I had fun and met some locals from Helena area (BIG help) and that helped me stumble onto the two bigger pieces (25g/4.5g) that saved my season. As long as I can improve weight at the end of season over the last I've reached my main goal. Good luck out there guys!!!
  15. That damned bird shot will keep ya busy.....
  16. Found these near Helena. Big one (my biggest so far) weighed in at 25g and smaller one is 4.5g.....total was just over 1 ozt. Wished all my hunts were similar to this!...lol Oh yeah....I lost a little dink but after the big one I could have cared less...
  17. Fortunately this was in an area where I could use a rake and spread dirt out, then use a scoop and the "divide and conquer" method......
  18. that's just cool as hell.....!!!!!!
  19. Well done!!!!! Your 29 beats my 2 so far.....lol
