Hunting in the snow ;-)
Quote this message in a reply
Couldn't sit around any longer in this BS snow crap! Temps went into the 50s for 2 days and melted about 85% of the shit! Been itchin to get on an 1860s site I've been wanting to hunt but had to wait till the crops came out but then the stupid snow came so this is the 1st time I've been able to hunt the place Wink

Didn't do too bad considering the conditions I had to deal with (as you can see in the pics)!

Finds worth mention:

1879 Injun
1863 Injun
Brass skeleton type key
knapsack ring
couple old buttons
Thimble
Toe kick
(Fav.) = pocket watch Key Wind in the last pic
