You just never know what to expect. I was river hunting this day and got caught up in the middle of a drug raid on an island grow operation. I hid in the bushes and watched it go down. I saw helicopters, boats, guns and Federal agents galore! . https://www.youtube.com/user/aquachigger

In this video my wife and I discover a baby fox while we were gem hunting. The fox was severely dehydrated, weak and had a bloody wound to it's neck. My wife is a Veterinarian, and we both are vaccinated against rabies. Do not attempt this if rabies is present in the area you live. If you get bitten by a rabid animal and are not treated, YOU WILL DIE. . https://www.youtube.com/user/aquachigger

It's been the summer of finding guns for me. Here I have a lever action repeater I just discovered. It was a cool adventure and awsome river exploration. I'll clean it up later this fall or winter as I feel the rush to continue searching for MOAR river treasure and winter's coming on fast. . https://www.youtube.com/user/aquachigger

While out exploring the other day in my kayak, I came across a gun case that had washed up on the muddy bank of the stream. It was heavy, and I was hoping it wasn't just full of mud, but was FULL OF GUN!

I found all of these sunglasses in rivers throughout the US. It is my hobby to search for GoPro's, iPhones, gold rings and other treasures that swimmers lose during the summer. I clean up and wear the expensive glasses and haul the rest out of the river as trash. BUT... I found a new life for them as fence art!

This was one of my favorite moments of the show RIVER HUNTERS that I shot this past summer. I was the second person in 3000 years or so to hold this amazing Bronze Age axe head which is an amazing piece of history and a phenomenal artifact!

https://www.youtube.com/user/aquachigger In this video I show one method of cleaning silver things to include coins. This is the method I use to clean some of my silver coins and made this video to show the people who ask me about that in my other coin find videos. Remember, most coin experts are now saying to never "clean" any coins. However, they will "restore" them for you for about $50 per coin (unless they are valuable coins and then the price rises dramatically). It's your money, choose wisely.

I was digging out a unknown cave and discovered some crazy weird noise coming from deep underground. This is the sinkhole I have been digging out for months and I finally opened up a dark passageway to the underground cavern, and when I dropped a rock down inside to test the depth and size... something started to make weird and scary noises from deep underground! What do you think is making that noise?

Here I show a fast, easy and cheap way to keep weeds out of your garden. Plus it helps keep the soil from drying out and attracts beneficial earthworms. If you do not use wood chips or other cover on the paper, the paper will yellow and fade becoming less unsightly in a short time. Just till the bits and pieces that make it through the winter under the following year. This also works great for mulch around trees. I do this every year, it works. https://www.youtube.com/user/aquachigger

Here is a brief run down of the different types of diggers and shovels I have used over the years. I have left out bayonets and knives as they are probably now considered dangerous weapons in public and may cause you much grief with the police if they so choose. I end with my current and favorite shovel.

Join me for an overview of the many iPhones, GoPros and various other phones I have discovered while searching rivers for treasure this summer. Many of phones are flooded and may be toast, but some of them work fine (though locked). The GoPros work flawlessly. I have given some away this summer, so it's not quite as impressive as it could have been, but I'm pleased with my finds overall. It was a good summer. Thanks for checking out the video!

I x-rayed this American Civil War era musket barrel that I had found some time ago because I could tell that there was something blocking the tube. It turns out that there are a bunch of Minie balls jammed in there. Why do you think this happened? In the video, I explain my theory.

During a rainy spell recently I decided to head back behind my house and check out the sinkhole I have been working on this summer. In older videos, I dug it out with a tractor and have since been waiting for a good heavy rain to help remove some of the dirt in the bottom.

https://www.youtube.com/user/aquachigger This is the second video of a two part series showing how I preserve the iron relics that I find while metal detecting. This method is especially useful when doing large volumes of relics. I have used this process with good success for several decades. Please do not attempt to do this indoors as it can be a serious fire hazard. Don't use good utensils or containers as they will for ever after be coated with wax. Your wife/mother/girlfriend will NOT be happy with you if you do. Been there, done that! The first part of this two part series is titled "Preserving Iron Relics: Electrolysis" and can be found on my channel.

Here is a video where I describe several types of magnets that are good for retrieving treasure. I show the kind you can toss in the river on a rope and also the type you can affix to a pick handle for iron retrieval. At the end of the video I show where you can buy them and the exact model numbers of the magnets shown.

Here is a video showing how I set up my Teknetics T2 (will work with a Fisher F75 as well) to hunt in the "all metal" mode. I also demonstrate the different sounds to listen for and how to manually ground balance the detector. There are other tricks and sounds to listen for in all metal, but I wanted to keep the video short and manageable. If there is any interest, I will do a follow-up with a few more pointers.

Join me and meMiner as we explore this old stone building at an abandoned silver mine site. Ol' Mees thinks this building is either a powder magazine or a fortified vault for storing silver. I like to think it had solid silver piled to the ceiling, but suspect it actually had blasting powder inside instead, I do find a really good size almost solid silver chuck of silver goodness right next to it, so who knows for sure. Check out meMiner's most excellent channel here and tell him Ol' Chigg sent ya! http://bit.ly/MeMiner

While digging a hole in the woods I uncovered a hibernating chipmunk. At first I thought he was hurt, but soon realized he was just very sleepy. I made another little shelter and carefully reburied him back in his nest. Spring is here and I have already seen other chipmunks out and about. I am sure he will be fine.
