I've never posted on this forum but check in once in a while. I had to send my v3i in for repairs but cant wait till it comes back and the ground thaws out! Hope this gets everyone fired up for spring!
Thanks guys. Im not sure how bad the ground is froze here but i have to wait for my detector to come back anyways. Its a good time to secure some permission tho. We got permission to hunt and old church yard last year and found where they had all their picnics. We ended up with about 2 dozen indian heads 20 silver and over 100 wheaties. Its not often you find a place like that but when you do youll never forget it. The deepest coin we dug in that yard was probably 4". Yep, 4c is right I boiled them in peroxide and wiped them off with a soft rag.
I got my detector back over the weekend so I took it to a friends house and hunted around a bit. Found some clad but nothing special. I dug a couple deeper plugs and went around 10" without hitting anything frozen. Weather looks promising for the weekend but it'll be awful muddy.
