Opening of Water Hunting Season - Sheppard Point

The club outing to Sheppard Point Recreation Area at Heyburn Lake on Sunday, June 24th was an outstanding one. Weather was great with the high temperature was around the 83° mark with a nice cool breeze out of the East and a refreshing cool lake water temperature. About as perfect a day as you could get about to enter July in Oklahoma.

The club supplied hamburgers, hot links, hot dogs, buns, condiments, & chips. Roger Eaton handled the cooking, which is now a Traditional job. Good job Roger and Thank You!

And Thanks again to John Freeman for picking up from the ITTHC storage building the club’s grill and bringing the tables. There were 38 members standing in line to chow down on burgers, dogs, supplied by the club and the outstanding food assortment brought by club members. There were 45 hamburgers, 24 hot dogs, & 24 hot links consumed, Thanks to all those bringing the great side dishes and desserts. If you went away hungry at this outing, again it was your own fault.

After the big feed there were scattered as evenly as possible 215 tokens in a 40 yards X 70 yards designated area. There were 17 tokens for member donated prizes, and 174 tokens for Silver Mercury dimes, 16 tokens for Silver quarters, and 8 tokens for Silver half dollars. There were a few Barber dimes & 1 Seated Liberty dime in the mix. When the start signal was given there were 18 water hunters frothing the water.

After 1 hour+ of hunting ALL newly scattered tokens were found & 2 old tokens. For the first water outing of the season this shows members are improving their skills. Tokens were painted Wheat Cents, painted aluminum pulltabs, painted & numbered .54 Gallagher Minie’ bullets, painted dug up Indian Cents, and painted Shield Nickels & V-Nickel.

And once again, one of the main reasons for this type of outing, besides the food of course, is also, the fun and fellowship of being with people that enjoy the same hobby. And to give non-water hunting members a chance to try their hand at it. There are always extra water detectors & scoops available for use, so if you have not tried water hunting come on out & try it, you might find you like it.

If you missed this outing, you missed a great one. Don’t miss the next one!
