THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
yep pretty pokey today
well, at least you got out and had a beautifull overcast day to dig in. i'm still kickn myself for not getting out just a little while anyway.
Youve got that on correct Pat. Ant tough day diggin beats no day diggin. Im always happy either way
one decent marcos or castro and a tip. We put the time in but it wasnt being quite so nice today.
good find snoop. did you dig in the same spot you were digging last week?
no sir it was dugg to heck in fact i had to digg the parking lot today thanks any luck on your end?How did you do after i left?
only found a broken tip. about three inches long though. would have been a huge point if it wasn't broken.
Maybe he said Jesse and him found a few in there. I know the last swing i took in there i found a smoker. Gilbert popped one out a foot or two away on the other side, man it stinks i had to work that was the best hole ive personaly have ever started. You know you picked a good spot if Hal and Jesse are in there. Ive only been around a while but you guys are certainly on em.
yep, thats it Hal, one lone test hole. Snoop had a feeling there was something there and just started digging that new hole. He moved more dirt in an hour than I can move all day. He finally said he had to call it a day and go to work. Decided to sling his pick one last time and there it was. out popped a nice beautiful point. Than, after all the excitement, the same for me. one rake of my old single prong and there it was. Sticking out of the wall just above the red dirt layer. Another great point. Unbelievable.
" and the rest of the story (s)"
I just talked to Larry;
At the Monday evening pic above where he took over John's area...He found a nice complete Williams....
Sorry John, but it could have been WORSE >>> at least it wasn't that elusive big Montell you had in mind.
He remembered Snoop and the fellow 'with glasses' yesterday.
That could be significant that your bird pt was found in the shallows...( I didn't realise it was a bird in your pic report as I dont know much about Ocra sizes )
The only other bird I have seen out there was also in the shallows. That 'mound' with the little tree growing out of it has yet to be investigated ...possible bird pt people ??
Re 2 or 3 of those 'other' people at the dig...Larry said " Oh My, they tore the place up like crazy just with those swing picks, looked like they were coal mining. Got nothing "
So again to possibly help the next crew going out,,,
Take the time to clear areas other diggers may have dumped down in disgust, down to the bottom, carefully dust off dirt looking for a possible snail layer.
If found, go after that level then when the overhang is excessive, remove it and follow the snails again.
That shallow parking lot digging,is expanding ever outwards...does it continue around the other 75% of the mound ?
WHO KNEW ?? as far back as Easter ?
Look at the pic GTwn posted ( 2nd up from bottom)under
' EASTER DIGGING "
Escargo ala Castroville sauce
I never get jealous of folks find. Im more excited my hunch paid off. I was suprised to see the birdie as well doesnt match the other finds. Maybe we will find another time period of points that wouldnt stink! Gilbert im glad you were my witness ill never forget that point and yours that followed we couldnt script it better.Still lots of snail layer left just be ready to work for it>
