Uncle Ron Posted September 13, 2007 Report Share Posted September 13, 2007 Yo All...The weather was pretty nice out around Rich Hill area yesterday so I got out a little before noon, nice temp, around 96 or so...There's an area I really enjoy hunting where I've found lots of gold, but it's pretty hard to snag a nugget there now...The fabled "Oops Patch"...However, as I said, it just feels good to me to hunt there...So, when I got out there, I broke out my old sd2100 and my Nuggetfinder 14E mono, got all hitched up then took a big breath, exhaled slowly and said, "I'm going to find gold today." ... Then I started very slowly scrubbing the ground...I settled into a slow motion mode...So slow that I was barely moving and I kept that up for four hours, only stopping once for 10 minutes to chug a cool Gatorade and eat an energy bar...In four hours, I covered an area about 75 feet long by 50 feet wide ... I found about 100 targets, mostly little rusty ferrous bits, and a dozen tiny lead pieces....Last week I found one little half grammer in this spot and by the time my four hours was up, I managed two more...Together they weight half a gram...It was really rewarding to lock in on a serious hunt mode and know absolutely with certainty I was going to find gold...Cheers, Unc Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
