Croatal bell in a snowy field
#1
A beautiful Iowa day, 34 degrees, sun shining, no wind. Perfect afternoon for an hour long field hunt.
I dug a few pieces of junk, then I got a signal that sounded like a deep IHP. I dug 7" and a beautiful little bell pooped outta the dirt.

   

 After cleaning it up, it's in awesome shape with a No. 3 stamped on the bottom. Best part about it is it's whole without a scratch on it, and the pea is still in there and has the most beautiful bell sound I've ever herd.

   

When my daughter herd it ringing she wanted to put it on our Christmas tree. 

   

Thanks for looking this may be my last hunt but I won't quit until I have to.   HH

Nice bell !!! Good that you got out. The ground hasn't froze yet so there is still hope, maybe Saturday.

49 sounds good but I would have to have some coveralls on for that wind.

Every time a bell rings ......  Sweet find!  Those corn stalks may insulate the ground and keep it from freezing as soon as everything else.  It may be good for a few more hunts.
The above should be interpreted as a protege offering information to the group for verification, or correction.
