thanks Monte. my old haunt was inundated in a flood in 1994. went under 6 ft water. ground is highly mineralized. registers high 80s to 90s on machines. the silt layer is up 6-8 inches deep in places, and some sand . when you dig down it is like an archeo show on TV, and varies in depth. below silt has some clayish soil.

we get droughts but this hurricane impacting us with up to 8 inches rain they are saying across central Georgia. the land changes in my area from the piedmont red clay gravel granite to the coastal plains with some clays of different colors, like white kaolin and orange red clay to sandy. it is where the ancient oceans met a land mass they say. in parts i have dug a 8 inch hole and it fill with water. in some its just wet sand like a beach.

reagrdless of temp, moisture or not i will hunt. i have broken entrencher handles on hard clay for a junk target lol.

come rain or shine heat or cold sickness fog gloom of night, ole dixie gonna hunt. period.

a bay day hunting is hunting still

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!
