BONE 25 in 2018 Plans

No Hunt Zone

Above, thanks to Charles Bass and the Bass Family the Professional Treasure Hunters were allowed to hunt here. Do not think there can ever  be another hunt as good as this. Charles Bass has been nominated for Treasure Hunter’s Hall of Fame for 2018. Nomination was not solely based on the land donation. Charles owns several  metal detector and could hunt the land until he died and not cover it all. It’s a passion we all have.  Charles offered the land and only wanted to know what was found and where, wanted some pointers for his 3030 and wanted the  Treasure Hunter’s Gazette to continue. Maybe he is our only Congressman member, anyway he has been made a lifetime member. I am sure he is still looking for  CTX 3030 pointers & maybe AT Pro pointers (someone gave him one before the hunt). Because Charles commutes  between Peterborough & Washington DC, we knew chances were slim he could attend BONE 24.  We apologize  to all who showed up & offered help. Charles H Bass  is on Face Book,  Jason & Chris and you, can still  offer him some help.  My apology Congressman Bass, you  have our respect, however, you are one of us  and a proud owner of several Minelab quality metal detectors, including the E-Trac, Excalibur II and now   a CTX 3030 and to us you are Charles).  Congressman you got the award because you are one of us, with a great heart, the desire to recover and protect our heritage.    ABOVE Map of 2017 no hunt zone.
