E-Trac Returns with a WWI Relic find from a backyard in Durant

Post by GonehuntingForHistory on Mon Apr 30, 2012 12:34 am

I haven't been out with the E-Trac in a while.. I have been hunting with the Deus quite a bit trying to get some good time on it. I have been really missing the depth that the Trac offers, so it went out with me today.. I forgot what it was like to dig a 10inch coin.. I went to a home built in 1917 and started digging old wheats and other relics. I had missed them in my previous outing and had solid signal at around a foot. I dug down thinking this was too big to be any good. Boy I am glad I did...


The Model of 1916 37mm round was developed by the French and was used by the French and the US in WWI to take out machine gun emplacements. It saw limited us in WWII and was used for training. It came with two different rounds, one an ineffective steel ball round, second was a exploding cast iron round with blackpowder. It came in the fixed tripod and wheeled carriage. Here is a pic off of the forgottenweapons website of the gun set up for action, apparently during WWI.

Thanks for looking.

Evan,

Do you use solid shot on single wild boar and explosive on herds of them?
