Default Chocolate Chip Token

Hit the "Giving Field" for about 2 hours today....the snow was wet and heavy and I took a page out of Mudpuppy's book and did the plastic bag wrap.....BRILLIANT! Worked like a charm....could see why he cut the "wings" off the Fisher coil before I wrapped it (and before I switched to the ATPro as things got muddier...)
Not a ton of great finds but I did score this chocolate chip token ..can't find much about it due to major chocolate recipes clogging up the google search... if any of you Michiganders can help me out, it's a Battle Creek Company...

Jeremiah found this other "Pointers" thing; wondering if anyone can help out with that too?? Fun digging in the muddy snow...

I'll say one thing, you sure are dedicated for getting out in the cold to do some detecting. Big Congrats!

Note the "two hours".... not the regular 5 or 7.....a couple after the fact at the brewery discussing finds and possible sites

Default After some research...

After some research, I thought I'd share some history. Pretty damn cool having a 100+ year old token that you pull out of a field; don't care how many times you've done it, it's still cool...Ö unless you're just a coinshooter

Great pics and find! Is this 'bagged coil' cool or what! MudPuppy Enterprises is proud to offer Coil Bags! At a dollar each! Or 12 for $10! Fits any and all rigs and coil sizes! Extend your season and make the best finds of your Life with a Mudpuppy Coil Bag!

Lookat this Succulent NFL Super Bowl Championship Gold tone replica I pulled this very morning with a MudPup bagged coil! Quick! Order your MudPup Ent coil bags NOW! Time and Gold waits for Nobody! (Screwdriver sold separately)

I dont care who you are! You cant hunt in the snow without a bagged coil! Even if you cut off the fins, when it comes to snow, you still gotta bag that thing!

If the bags work for dog poop also we need a bunch.
