Good evening everyone, i hope your all doing good and staying safe. The boys and i made it out today for the first time this year and it was a fabulous finds day for sure!! We decided to hit a few spots that we have always drove past but never stopped. Sure glad we did today. Cameron found a huge silver spoon, a really cool lock, a Chinese coin, a gold plated shirt pin with a heart on it and a few other cool finds. My little guy found a sweet silver horse bridal concho, a few axe heads, a pick head, some sweet buttons and a complete late 1800s whiskey bottle. I ended up with some cool buttons, one of them being an Eagle Infantry button and some pretty cool odds and ends along with a 1867 S Seated liberty half dollar. It was down about 6 inches and just hammered on the 600. Ill attach a few pics and then tomorrow ill take a pic of everything together. Stay safe everyone and have a Happy Easter weekend!!

Dan

Thanks guys. Not a ton of finds like our other previous spots but definitely quality over quantity for sure.

Dan, May I ask what you and the kids are using? Are you hunting in all metal mode or using discrimination?

Lots of things to be found even after all these years. I'm sure there's plenty of nugget specimens to be found as well. 

Did you ever go back to hunt for more turquoise?

We run the Equinox in Park 2 with a little bit of iron bias. We run them in multi mode which works great out there, and they handle the mineralized ground really well. On my 5000 i run no discrimination at all and usually dig everything. 

There is probably 3 feet of snow up in the turquoise spot but we plan on going back as soon as it melts. Been researching the area pretty heavy this winter.

I found that if you are in a spot with lots of targets, even just iron trash when they are starting out, they love it. They dont get bored!! Then throw a few good targets in the mix, and my boys were hooked. My oldest son is 19 and my youngest is 12. My oldest got hooked when he was 9 and my youngest when he was 6. They love it!!

Thanks Mitchel!
