Hey that looks like a dream hunt. A lot different than CA huh? No big nuggets down there, but some awesome relics.

Would you consider that the best hunt of your life in regards to CW relics ?

I have 3 best friends. Their names are Ace 350 , AT Pro ,  and a Fisher F 75 but I like people too.

Not really-- I have had some pretty good CW relic days!! Dug a US buckle and a Breast plate in one day along with about 50 minnie balls. A buddy I brought to the site dug teh cartridge box plate. We got the entire belt assembly. That was a good day!!

My first breast plate will probably always rank as one of the best relic days!!
