Well last night I had an opportunity to hunt a field that I have been researching and seeking permission to hunt for the last six months or so. This field has had activity on it since the mid 1870’s. It is a large field that is freshly plowed. The tenant that farms it will be planting corn soon. I only had about 45 minutes to hunt and I managed to find a couple goodies. I look forward to hunting this field as often as possible. The coolest part of the evening was when a man wanted to see what we were doing. He started telling me his 11 year old son had a detector. I encouraged him to attend a meeting of the Wheat State Treasure Hunters.

Livestock band from a local farmer that used the field sometime in the past.
Wheat State Treasure Hunters
I am the one keeping track of members of the group and noticed something that is neat. Out of about 25 people who want to participate we have 5 ladies. I have to think the Detecting Diva would find this satisfying. I hope that as the group progresses we see families and children getting involved.
Happy Hunting and thanks for reading!
