fay lake and more

#1

Post by tomcd62 »

Before heading to Fay lake in Wisconsin Beast of burden drove up my place in Northern Minnesota for some dumping . We had three days of hit and miss can hunting finding rust ,the best being 1930s dump.We even took the canoe out to search some island campsites for cans at Birch lake near Babbitt ,MN. We then headed south to met up with, Ziphippie, Rusty Jonesin and Conesplus at Fay Lake. Thank you Beast of Burden for making the trip north .Thanks guys for the good hunting, expert navigational research (cones plus) , all the laughs and for feeding me. Here's some clean cans from both places.Some new for the shelf and some upgrades.TGT

Love those Draft cans! One of these days you’ll find a whole flock of the flattop duck cans to rival the decoy collection assembled in the master bath- Ziphippie
