     Dear White's,

A couple of weeks ago two friends and I decided to try our luck at a local park. The park is the site of a civil war battle and has been absolutely pounded by local hunters. If you pick up a bullet you have had a good day. We started hunting and about thirty minutes into it I hit a nice signal, a very deep lead signal. As i kept digging my pinpointer was completely in the hole when it started to beep.

A nice 69 caliber dropped mini ball, it was at about ten inches. After cleaning up my dig site I ready to dig another. I went about two feet when I hit another good signal, As I pulled out my plug I could see gold, it turned out to be a gold ring with onyx and diamonds.

This is the first ring I have ever dug and I was really excited, so I cleaned up my plug and I was off again. I made one swing of the coil and there was another solid signal. It turned out to be another gold ring! This one had a nice opal for the stone. At the end of the day the XLT had made me one happy hunter.

Thanks White's for such a great machine.
John (MO)
