Winter Hunting Tip . . .

December 20, 2018 12:04AM avatar
I am busy tomorrow, Wednesday, and don't have anything planned for Thursday or Friday other than Gregg might drop over for a bit to check out some detectors and detector performance on a few test samples and the NBPT. This morning the weather looked more inviting for Thursday and Friday and not getting as cold at night, but I just checked NOAA and they made an update.sad smiley

Both days suggest a high of 42°, but Thursday evening shows a 40% chance of rain and that continues with 20% before 11 AM on Friday. Also the cold front is arriving a day or so earlier and Friday night it will drop to 25°. So Thursday might work out, but Friday could be a wetter start of the day.

There is one place over near Ontario I have kept an eye on for over a year but never have caught anyone present at what appears to be an unoccupied home. A big enough open yard to keep two or three people busy for a day or two, but I figured I would hold off 'til spring to make sure the weather will cooperate with a longer daylight period of better weather and not a lot of 'wet,' as well as stay nice to allow us to revisit the sites for two or three days.

Until then, I think you have the right idea to just single-out some 'quick-hit' places like curb strips, etc. I'm ready for either day. We just need to get Gregg's availability.


I find it handy to keep a coin probe in the car to check the ground in the winter when there are a couple warmer days in a row. South facing locations will often thaw allowing detecting. Even walking across the ground, you can tell if the surface is frozen. While it may only be a smaller area, it does give the opportunity to hunt. cool smiley

Thursday or Friday? I'm good but the weather might not be.
