hooked on honkers...

Recommended Posts

Hi Bill and All.

Well lil bro's arm is almost completely healed up and he wanted to go hunt the same old honker patch. So we headed out west for some beepin and we weren't disappointed either. We tagged teamed the patch and did some pickin' and some grinin' and Scotty ended up pulling out a nice 7.3 dwt nugget and I got the little .5 dwt nugget. They sure are ugly nuggets...

I'll post more pics after a bath in CLR ... hope you enjoy.

All righty then. I bet Scotty's arm will heal up much faster after digging up a chunky nugget like that. Keep 'em coming!

GSM you've probably said before but I don't remember :old: which machines are you and Scott using

and the coils....they sure are producing....would it be possible to get a tractor in there and do a little

land scaping?.....

Thanks for the reminders of what gold looks like with the pics....

That's easy Glenn....just take your machine and turn all "off" switches "on".....and all "on" switches "off"...

Glad to help any time.....

Thanks guys,

This patch as been good to us. The bigger nugget had lots of caliche on it and after the CLR bath it changed it's shape and the weight is down to 6.2 dwt. I guess it looks a lot better now! :brows:

Don,

We have 3500's souped up by Ismael Jones with 16 in round NF mono's. :head:

We could get a tractor in there but at this point we're not willing to go through all the hassle with BLM. We don't want to attract any attention to the area and I think we should just keep working it a little at a time by hand. :Diggin_a_hole:

I can see it all now. :200:

Russ & Scotty are out there beepin' .... :head::head:

Russ gets a faint signal and starts digging. :Diggin_a_hole:

He's down about a foot and the signal is still pretty faint :89:

He digs and he digs and he digs some more :Diggin_a_hole:

and pretty soon Scotty comes over and starts digging :Diggin_a_hole::Diggin_a_hole:

because they both have guns :cowboypistol::cowboypistol:
and they can't find anyone WITHOUT a gun to do the digging for them. :cry2:

They both dig and dig and dig some more :Diggin_a_hole::Diggin_a_hole:

:fl: hoping that John B isn't playin' a durdy trick on em' with a green turd... :shhhhh::evil1:

Now they are down over 3 feet but now the signal is screaming... :ROFL::ROFL:

To be continued.... :pop:

Hi Slim,

:laught16::laught16::laught16:

Clint Eastwood: In this worid there are two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig, ...

Here's a picture of John B whispering words of encouragement to Scotty at the green turd patch... :knight-horse:

I think the Honker Patch is about cleaned out again... I'm getting too tired to dig... :old: If John B. could come up to the patch and whisper in Scotty's ear we could get some more nuggets. The only problem if any of the prospecting clubs found out John B. knew where the honker patch was they'd probably waterboard him and make him talk... :5bat:

I was hoping for one more daddy honker from this patch! Time will tell...
