Went to a new site today, an old park in the middle of nowhere. The village it is in is very small, but it has a baseball field on the old aerials, so you never know.
As expected, density was an issue, as I pulled only 2 coins in the first hour of hunting. At least one of them was a merc — nice to see a merc for a change. Decided to set up a grid around where I found the merc, and pulled 8 wheaties and no more silver. Are you kidding me? Talk about a ratio killer. And the frustrating thing is that some of them sounded quite good. One was an 09-48 which I figured for a slam dunk silver Q (turns out there was a pull tab piece in the hole, and I was getting that adding effect due to my deep on, fast off setting).
Outside the wheaties, pulled just 4 other clads, for a total of 13 coins in 4 hours. And this is a public park. Talk about low density. The site is rather large, and just screams for my big unit, which is on its way to KellyCo. I think this site needs to be tabled ’til I get a new one back, tho I don’t get terribly excited about a 1 in 4 hour site. Can’t judge a site on just one hunt, tho.
