I made a new friend a couple of weeks ago.  While detecting in a nearby town a young man walked over to me and started talking.  About ten seconds into the conversation he asked me, “Aren’t you Kentucky Shooter?”

Blew my mind … someone actually watches my videos and reads my stuff.

Anyhow, we made a quick connection and talked about getting together to hunt.  So we finally made some time yesterday morning, right before a big shield of rain moved in.  Leroy247 took me to a spot that he got permission for on a large farm.  It’s an old homeplace settled in the late 1800’s and lived on through the 20th century.  He also has permission to hunt all the farm fields, which is way awesome.

He struck silver first, with a nice Mercury Dime.  And we each dug a sack full of wheaties (he had 9, I had 10) and a little clad.  Two of my Wheats were pretty old, a 1917 and a 1920 … nice and green.  I just happened to get my coil over a merc and two silver Washingtons.  My E-Trac howled over the silver, with a perfect 11-47 on both.  I called them before I dug them, which Leroy247 seemed to enjoy.

Here is a picture of my digs, including a junque ring and dragon pendant (that had me fooled for a second … thought I had found a HUGE chunk of silver), and the top to a “Safety First” condom can from back in the day.  Fun, fun.

Thanks for reading.  I hope to have the video ready tonight.
