Bounty of the fields.. Part 1

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.

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!

  1. Cool 40 perncenter you got there! It is extremely cool to see the ladies getting involved in the hobby.

    It would tickle me to no end to see a women’s detecting group splinter from here. I believe it would be the first one of it kind in the country. We’re such trailblazers!

  2. It’s a hobby that is difficult for women to get involved in, mostly because it’s male dominated and a lot of women get intimidated.
    Even so, I’ve been seeing a lot more women getting involved lately, and I hope it’s a trend.
