Golden Eye Candy

Recommended Posts

Well, it's that time of year, again.  It's starting to get nice out during the day, but I thought I would get in one more nighttime hunt.  And this last night hunt treated me well.  I explored a new area about a mile from where I had found gold before.  The rain really has changed the roads and washes in this area.  Many areas were nearly unpassable.  But I managed to get there with my trusty 4x4 and went out into the night feeling a little crazy (by myself) as I am many times.  And the only thing that makes that crazy feeling fade away, is when you find that first piece of gold.  And then the stars align and everything seems normal, again.  Friday night's total came out to 7.25 grams.  Some pictures didn't come out so well.  Photography just doesn't work too well at night.

Thanks all!  It's a lot of fun when you actually find a new area.  I dont mind getting skunked a time or two since it usually balances out in a few trips if I'm lucky.

Good lookin' gold, Andyy...Unlike you guys who do, I've never hunted gold at night (unless it was the blonde at the end of the bar!) ...  I've always been afraid of joenoshoulders ... Cheers, Unc

ok, I have to ask.  Is joenoshoulders the blonde's boyfriend or are you referring to the occasional mtn. lion I have to throw rocks at to scare away?  :inocent:.

Ah, nice one Uncle Ron.  I learn something new every day.  Snakes have never been an issue for me at night, at least in the areas I hunt.  (also I use snake gators)  I find them much more common in wet areas.  In drier areas, I see more during the day (usually early morning).  But I understand other people don't have the good snake karma that I do :D

Ron, I think I'm with you on this one.... 

I'm not crazy about the thought of trying to locate a buzzing rattler at night! I'll do the earlier in the morning and later in the evening but I have to know what's around me.... 

Nice finds Andy!
