I had a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones. I enjoyed being able to hunt for eight straight and ... eight is enough. Started off hunting at DIV XIII PI Hunt Sun-Tue. Found my first CS Eagle with Gilt and another NY Cuff button. Wed Noel took us to his home town area in Petersburg. Found a few bullets and colonial buttons. Got to meet some of his family and in-laws. Chris, who couldn't make the March DIV this year, joined us for half a day. It was a really nice day and we ended up at one of Noel's favorites that had an all you can eat rib night. Thursday we hunted a local 600A farm that we were fortunate to get permission to hunt in Culpeper. Found some 3 ringers, a ball button and J-hook. Looking forward to going back as we just barely scratched the surface in one small area. Fri-Sun the big DIV XIV Hunt and I found my first plate. A cartridge box plate. Thanks John, Rose and Committee for a great time at tow well organized hunts. I would really like to do that again next Spring! It was also a special hunt as Bernie from Vermont joined us for his first DIV. Lucky Bernie! Most people who find eight bullets at a DIV find eight 3 ringers. Not Bernie, only one and the other seven were all different! We hunted together this weekend in NH. On Saturday he found a really nice eagle button. After cleaning it he has told me it has a crown above the eagle. Now we have to find out what it is. Maybe British. Today he found a silver 1818 8 reale. Lucky Bernie! My DIV finds:
