Lucky Streak! Is Bigger Better?

Recommended Posts

Every detectorist has their day(s)! Just like any other sport we watch or favorite sport player, they will have and off day that may last a month or more. Vast part of February, I was plagued with skunks and dinks. It was common to hear me muttering to myself, why did I give up Stamp Collecting? I've mentioned your mental being and a few of the techniques I use to Turn the Worm in your favor in a couple of last weeks post. Here's a couple of new nuggets from this weekend and the Big 5 of the poke. The first one was in a sea of trash, as I was trying to escape it to get to more pleasant detecting spot. Between two obvious trash sounds was this other sound, deeper, yet real iffy to dig or not. Well, I was very pleased at over 15" that fat nugget popped out. I'm sure there is a small patch mixed in with hundreds of trash targets...some other day! The second one was from and old patch and again, next to a couple of dig holes and some big booming trash tagets. I heard this deep dull, wire wobble sound. I've dug enough of these sounds to say dig it out and to favor it provide to be golden with a nice quarter ouncer to the poke. So, just as in Baseball, do I swing or not at this pitch? Or the Hunter, do I have this shot or not? Swing away and pull that trigger, dig that iffy sounding target you may dig up a fat worm or two! Until our next hunt!

Uncle Ron,

All my gold is always for sale. Hope your working on a fat poke, I just spend a ton on a new home heater & A/C units. This bad weather is keeping me out of the patches to make the difference up so I can drink some proper Take care and if your heading up this way to visit your family, do stop for a hunt or two.

I have often wondered the same thing, maybe my furtive cries of "why did I give up stamp collecting" must have crossed over the Sierras from the Nevada country...

With every photo of yours I scrolled to view today, each image got a DANG, then another DANG, then another DANG, and damm that guys LUCKY!

You wear the handle well, and you have earned it...

Keep 'em coming!
