A Merc & a Lead

Hit one of my older pocket spots this morning, with my buddy, Fluke. We've hit this place hard in the past, so, we were basically looking for any scraps. It was a bust, and we left after an hour. Decided to try a large grassy area down the road I had a feeling about. Looks like an old sledding hill. We were short on time, so, only had maybe an hour to hunt it. We both found a merc each and a few wheats, but, this spot has good potential. Always nice to find new hunting ground. Even better though...

As I'm swinging my machine, I hear someone yell out; "I buried a six pack there". Some guy smoking a cigar & walking his dog in the adjoining woods being funny. Anyways, he chatted me up, and turns out, he owns a house in a VERY old town. Said he's a contractor & was doing work in his yard, when he dug up old property markers from the 1700's!!! He also found buffs and other stuff. There was even heavy troop activity back in the day. My buddy and I timed finding our mercs perfectly, as the guy was standing there watching. He was in disbelief we were pulling silver from the ground...he even took pics on his phone, lol. Casually mentioned hunting his yard, and he was gung ho Happy Told him I even have a spare machine so he can hunt with me, and he was practically drooling. This sounds good. I'm stoked!!!

I'm hoping next weekend Happy This guy couldn't have been more interested. I'm just hoping he isn't was of those tall tale fellas, and we get there & the yard looks like a closet or something. My luck always has a way of crapping out, lol. Still, even if its semi-old, this town has HISTORY. In the least there'll be some nice mercs, barbers and maybe, possibly even a seated, as I'm trying to catch up to Ron Tongue Although, I will surely take a gold coin like yours too, Ray Big Grin

UPDATE: Just texted the guy I met the other day (that sounded so gay, lol) and told him I have a machine all set-up & ready to go for him. Asked how big his yard was, and he replied...

FOUR FOOTBALL FIELDS!!!

Now that sounds WAY big, so, either this guy is the greatest bullshit artist ever to walk the face of the earth, or, this is going to be one HELLUVA place to hunt Happy
