Dear White's,

My friend Brian and I went for a hunt one morning last month. While driving to our hunting location I told him, "Man, I feel like we are going to recover something great today!"

As we pulled up, we readied our MXTs for a full day of hunting. We set out early in the morning just as the fog was rolling out. Brian struck first finding a General Service Eagle Cuff Button. After a few more minutes of searching, I wandered over to a large tree stump that had been cut a few years back. I got a Iron signal and dug what looked like a piece of a horse bridle part. After filling in my hole, I scanned my coil right next to where I had just dug and got a solid +85 signal and the MXT said it was about 3 inches deep.

After digging my hole, I saw an oval-shaped object flip down in to the bottom of the hole. I knew I had a good one. After picking up the object, I flipped it over and I saw the letters, "CS". I started screaming and yelling like a baby! Brian overheard my excitement and came running over. We both sat and looked at it for almost 30 minutes as it was a huge adrenaline rush!

You can view our video of the CS plate being recovered on our website at www.researchandrecoveryshow.com

Thanks for your great products and service White's!
