Nugget Shooter Forums

Recommended Posts

When I first started out hunting silver coins, I routinely ended up finding clads and maybe an old Wheatie or two. When I stopped hunting coins and concentrated on nugget shooting, I started finding silver coins. That's not all bad I guess, but it can be distracting. The historical allure of old silver coins can have a tendency to divert my attention away from gold. Especially if I haven't found any nuggets and suddenly start finding silver coins. I find myself gravitating toward old deteriorating buildings and evidence of habitation, and straying away from the more likely areas I should be seeking in order to find gold.

And therein lies the problem. Fortunately, one that I have been increasingly learning to live with.  :)

I will tell ya, i have the same dang problem lately. Especially with my two boys loving to hunt coins and relics so much. And unfortunately, where i hunt gold, we also hunt coins because of all of the scattered camps. Then i go buy an Equinox and that made it even worse!! My absolute love for nugget hunting and gold has been partially overtaken by dang coins and relics.

Great coins!!
