    Gpz-7000 Rookie Here. Initial Settings?

    Rail Dawg, Very Little Mineralization, not in my book! This time of the year the soil is damp and the Rye Patch soil comes alive with its Mineralization. Start off with factory settings this time of the year, tweak as needed, low and slow and your hunting gold. Rick

    Perfect Hunting Season

    Dave, We still talk about that 2200. It found us a huge Patch. But with the hot ground and the noise of the 2200, Jeff was having a problem finding anything under a couple dwts, lol. He upgraded a few months later to a GP 3000, which Rudy still owns. GPZ, is the ticket and loves the ground in your neck of the woods...I should be out your way a few times this Winter. Rick

    Busted A Fatty Today!

    That’s what I like to see! WTG
  5. Most of us Prospectors are avid outdoorsman! You can find us with the same smile on our faces be it fishing or hunting. This Deer Season my old Buddy NuggetSlayer (Jeff), headed up to the hills to hunt some Deer. Well early into the hunt on opening day, he took carful aim at a 2x2 Blacktail Buck. One well placed shot, Jeff let the Deer run over the top of the ridge to bleed out as he hike to find the blood trail to track it down. It ran a little further than he expected, but the woods opened up and was easy hiking following the Deers trail. Called his hunting partner on the radio for some help, he had it field dressed ready for the hump back to the truck, when he arrived. With all the excitement of the hunt, he was dreading dodging all the pine trees and brush on the other side of the hill and down to the truck. Then it hit him, he was smack in the middle of and old Hydraulic Pit. He quickly changed from his hunting hat (even though it’s the same dirty one) to his prospecting hat! Deer hanging at camp and rested up he hiked back to the Hydro Pit and scouted it, he sent me pictures of both Deer and Hydro Pit. I told him it looks like a no-brainer, just a matter of getting it under the coil and dig it! We waited well after hunting season to finally get there with our GPZ’s. Chilly start with the trucks temperature gauge saying 25 degrees. But the little hike over the ridge made it feel a few degrees warmer, lol. As any Hydro Pit, plenty of trash...Relics to some, but the wrong color for today’s hunt. I finally, found a dink and called Jeff on the radio. Didn’t take him long to find one several yards from me. Jeff, made a big circle and came back to his spot and heard another possible target at the edge of his dig hole...yep another nugget! Well to make a long story short, he found a little spot that didn’t get washed away back in the day. We messed around making his hole bigger and 14 of them 15 nuggets came out of that pay material. Well this spot is to far for a day trip and it’s way to chilly, until after next Springs snow melt to finish this spot off and to explore the entire Hydraulic Pit. Now, Jeff can afford some Potato Salad with his Deer Steaks! Until the next hunt LuckyLundy

    Rye Patch Claim Jumpers?

    Cobill, Love your History lesson! I’m not here to get either of you claim owners upset! All claim owners have the same problems w/Unauthorized minerals withdraws. Like Clay’s above information everyone should know the basics to know where they are in searching for a nugget! The underlining problem is only One Percent do. Next time your out in the Goldfields, stop and ask someone where section 8 or 18 is located. Like, Clay mentioned above not knowing where your at isn’t much of and excuse...but, it’s a fact. Until all Prospectors are educated on researching open/claimed mineral land status this is a never ending story we face with our claims. Now, I’ve had adjacent claim owner problems as well...they all ready know your sweet dredge or Detecting spots. LuckyLundy

    Rye Patch Claim Jumpers?

    CoBill, I believe, I talked to you and your GrandSon out in Rye Patch a month or more back. If I remember right you didn’t have much luck. Your claim is on a main road with one of your claim markers. That would be a great place for you to place a map of your claim for Folks that are new to our hobby. Kind of like rest stop maps, your Here! My claim boundaries are within the Highlighted area. Remember only One Percent of Folks out there can understand claim paperwork. Just like only One Percent of Folks consistently find nuggets. Again, your claim was hunted for the last 25 years by the best in our hobby. I’m sure there are a few more left for you and your GrandSon to share the hunt in finding! But, the Hey Day’s of Rye Patch are long gone. Yet again, remains easy access for new folks to our hobby to have a chance of digging up a nugget! I’m more than happy for you and Rail Dawg in claim ownership. Instead of threatening verbiage try educating the young enthusiast in our hobby! Hope to see you in the goldfields with a big smile on your face and a sweet nugget to go along with it. LuckyLundy

    Rye Patch Claim Jumpers?

    Rail Dawg, I met you and your Brother at the Pizza Joint at Rye Patch, a week or so back. You swing AT Pro detectors. 99.9% of Rye Patch detectable Gold is long gone for that metal detector! You seem to be blaming all the Claim Jumpers for taking your Claims Riches. Thousands of people enjoy Rye Patch for the relative easy access to hunt for a nugget. Being a Past and Current Claim owner, it’s a job with all the paperwork, checking your corner markers, etc. Most folks, don’t understand Sections of land like Section 8 or 18. Nor, do they understand claims! Here is what I’ve done in the past with folks wondering onto my claims. I tend to put up more signs than just corner signs, I know you only have to have your corners marked. But, most folks don’t know that, especially, when your other corner marker is over a hill or out of sight. I’d also, have with my paperwork, a map of the Claim at each corner. Again, most folks don’t understand coordinates, SE Corner of Sec 8, etc they are just out in the woods or desert to spend a day with Family or Friends. Your claims in the past 25 years have been detected by some of the best in our hobby. I’m sure there is a few left for you and your Brother to find and to enjoy our hobby with others! Here’s to your success LuckyLundy
