Recently I've been hunting a road construction in Enid. The location was in between the present day Garfield County Courthouse and the U.S. Post Office. The street covered up the 2nd Garfield Co. Courthouse that was destroyed by fire in January 29th, 1931.
After the success of the first day, we were anxious to get back to our new honey hole. With the CTX3030 loaded with my favorite setting, we began where we had left off. I had marked where my grid was from the previous day, pulled the marker and began to work.....
Recently Gonehunting for History and Silver Fiend http://www.TheSilverFiend.com has been teaming up to hit new properties. Most of the time we find a few goodies, but this last weekend was a slam dunk for us both...
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..
I've been struggling to find a place back home to hunt. Most of the homes and lots that I have hunted in the past are drying up. It has been taking hours just to find one good target..
When going to a new town and I really don't have to time to research specific sites, I will sometimes drive to the older parts of the town and look for specific things that I know can have the potential to hold old targets. Brick sidewalks or where they were is a good spot to check.
I was anxious to get back to the house I had hunted the day before. The chance of finding more relics and silver was too much not to go.
I got there rather late and the landowner was there. He had to eat so I turned on the GPS and went to griding.
I was driving through a neighborhood that I had hunted numerous times. There is a two story that has been vacant for years and I have never had a chance to hunt it. As I was driving by, I saw a man walking around doing some repairs and I stopped and inquired about the home.
I had to run to town to pickup a few things and the bug was biting me. I had the Deus in the back seat so I looked for a spot to hit. I went over to a house that was built in 1897, unfortunately it burned down around 8 years ago. I had skipped over this spot because of all the old pipes and junk metal left there on the ground.
Most of the targets were either near the surface or under 5 inches.
Here is a list of the finds as they came.. lol sorry nothing exciting.. just a quick hunt.
I went up north to visit with my family. Got to spend some quality time with them. The weather was beautiful and I got out for a couple of hunts. The city I was in has several detectorist's that hunt there, but it is rather large and a huge history from the turn of the century.
