First thing you need to hunt the walk that go up to the front porch, hunt on both sides . Something that is most of the time over look is hunting in the back yard one area for sure is where the clothes line was. Years ago people didn`t have washer and dryers so when they dry their clothes was outside on a clothes line. These are easy to reconize by the big iron pipe coming up out of the ground and at the top it look like a big iron T. My Mom had a clothes lines year ago and my grandparents did too. Most clothes lines were in the back yard. If you think a yard is hunted out,but you still want to hunt it. Check on the outer edges of the property. Check around the base of big trees, Was there a trail leading to a outhouse or other building. Also year ago folks would mail letter straight from the mailbox. Checkout the trail that lead from the house to the mailbox. What about a little trail that lead from the porch to the Garage. Check the shady area of the yard where kids played, Maybe a low spot.This little tip is for older hobbist do you remember the cast iron wash pot. My Grandmother had some. They would rinse the clothes out in them.check where these may have been if your hunting on family owned property.
