This last weekend I was fortunate enough to hunt 3 days. 2 of the was some sort of a struggle.. Whether it was a construction site or a courtyard that every hunter in the county had hit..
This weekend, two of my Bigboyshobbies customers came down from Missouri to get a little hands on help with their new Minelab CTX3030's. The first part of the morning we worked on swing speed, griding, and target sizing. I have to say the younger of the two was on fire.
I haven't taken the XP Deus out in almost a year and I was really wanting a change of pace. It only took me a few minutes of swinging it in my target garden and I was ready to go. A slightly modified Deus Fast with version 2.0 software.
I have been testing a new type of camera here recently. This camera is a POV(point of view). It is a camera mounted in a pair of glasses. It is time saving and a lot easier to use than carrying a tripod and standard camera around. I will be doing a full review on these in the next couple of days. I wanted to share the hunt and video so you can see what I have been up to.
I know it has been awhile since I last posted, but the Internet is spotty where I have been. The following was written on the 10th of October…
After having the Dime Grand slam a few days ago, I called my buddy Sam to see if he wanted a try at that lot where I scored the silver dimes and other finds.. It didn’t take him long to say yes.. only problem was it finally began to rain some here in SE Oklahoma so we were in a waiting game.. I tried hunting in between cloud banks while Sam waited at the house. One particular time it started to lightning and about 20 seconds after I turned off the camera a lightning strike hit a tree about 30 yards from where I was at.. Luckily I had already put the camera back in the car and was leaning in the car when it hit.. I nearly ran through the opposite side door. lol I didn’t know where it hit but knew it was close..
After regaining my composure and waiting for the storm to pass I began hunting.. First target proved to be good…
After, that several Buffalo Nickels also were around this wheat…
One of my cool finds of the day was this cool little toy.. I have only seen one other, but have no reference for it..
Caprock finally arrived and we got to hunting more of the yard… He dug a couple of wheats, plus two silver Rosy’s.
His find of the day and mine too, lol was a large $20.00 Jewelry Token. I love tokens and this one is cool…Information states that this token was from the 1940′s and was good for $20.00 off a purchase of $67.50 or more on a Diamond ring from this dealer..
At the same time he was digging this I scored my only gold item of the day…This “Forget Me Not” locket…
I have found 3 of these pins in Atoka recently. Thinking the 19-20 on the bottom was for the year, was a mistake. The 19-20 signified the 19th and 20th centuries. In 1915, the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, created the Modern Health Crusade, which enlisted children in a campaign for better hygienic habits.
Not of much importance other than the date was this piece..
I did rescue this lonesome Indian Head cent. I was right next to the bush where the all the silver dimes came from…
I did manage to keep up the silver count with Sam.. with a Rosy and a War Nickel…
1944D War Nickel
The lot still had few wheats left.. 11 1/2 to be exact..lol
We had a blast and am ready to get back out. I also have a second right now, but waiting for it to load to YouTube also… I also have an interesting find from a small town nearby here that I am trying to get all the info together before I post it.. I will just say it has to do with a safe being blown….
