Summary: 44th ANNUAL Indian Terr. Treasure Hunt

Summary:

44th Annual Indian Territory Treasure Hunt, May 23 & 24, 2015

Hunt Statistics:

This years 44th Annual Treasure Hunt was another good one. There were 102 entries total in all the hunts, 92 adult entries and 10 Kids. Entrants came from 9 states: Arkansas, Arizona, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. This year’s hunt had a total of $ 13,500.00+ in coins and prizes in all of the hunts combined. This hunt has been held ANNUALLY every year on Memorial Day weekend since 1972. The way the weekend was shaping up earlier in the week it looked like rain all weekend. But heavy rain only fell during one or two of the hunts and almost all of the burying was accomplished without any rain. The Nite Hunt was cancelled due to lightning & heavy rain. Silver coins for the Nite Hunt were put into the Main Hunt as prizes and the Wheat Cents were bagged for multiple prizes in the Sunday Kids Hunt. It did rain the whole time stringing the fields on Friday and again thanks to those getting wet during the stringing of the hunt fields.

This is a Competition Hunt where the Quarter size targets (1 point) & the Dime size targets (3 points) are buried 6+ inches deep.
