Ice Cold Gold

Recommended Posts

You know its cold when you have to keep your beer in the cooler to keep it from freezing! :4chsmu1:

Haven`t been posting trip reports much, but thought I`d share a recent one.

Boulder Dash and I got together for some serious recon in an area that recently had a good showing of snow. The night time temps on day one got down to 19 degrees, and it really wasn't that bad . Heres the thermometer at 21 degrees about 8 in the morning.

Boulder Dash prefers to sleep under a sheet of ice apparently, because this is what I saw when I went over to his camp in the morning :nutty::tisk-tisk:

Frozen ground and cooler weather aside, we still hunted as best we could, and even managed a few nuggets for our efforts. :black_knight_standing:

Mine on the left and Boulder Dash`s on the right. :brows:

Adam,

Thanks for another very entertaining account of you and BD doing what you do best, thinking outside the box and coming up with nice nugs and pics. You guys rock.

You guys are nuts ... I just back from Denver late last night ... there is more snow here in Prescott Valley than in Wheat Ridge CO (just NW of Denver) ... What's with that? I left NH to come to sunny and warm AZ a few years ago ... I no longer have use for snow! ... do miss snowmobiling and ice fishing though ... that is probably the only good I can think of for snow and cold! :):old:

Was a great trip but to be honest the cold was really not that bad. We continue to improve our successful systems each and every time out. You guys should see Adams very successfull breakfast systems they are amazing. Nice nugget bro!!! When you dropped that lunk in my hand it was legendary.

Thanks for the comments everyone :oregonian_winesmiley: Yep it was cold , but the worst part was trying to dig targets in frozen solid gravels :grr01: It pay`d of for boulder dash though when he popped a couple from a very icy spot :yesss:He also scored a very coarse awesome looking isometric piece of gold from a new gully.

Well I WAS going to make a comment about common sense, and winter hunting the desert areas that are too hot to hunt most of the year, instead of the high country.......

Buuuuuut....you guys DID make some nice finds, so instead, I will praise your success. I bow to your craziness!
