  for what its worth, I've ranched in eastern Montana 68 years and have yet to hear of anyone pointing a gun over rock hunting.  The lower Yellowstone, (North of Glendive) is best for agates with color (red) but miles City area is good too.  Yes, canoe upstream, you can always float down.  The gravel bars get picked over but high banks which erode a lot and are more difficult to get to will produce agates from week to week.  It will be dry and hot in August.  The river will be as low as it gets all year and will drop daily as farmers take more water for irrigation, which will leave new agates exposed near the water.  Try the fishing access sites and paddle as far from them as you can.  There will be agates for us all this year, the winter was long which made a lot of ice to plow with and its been high since which will hydraulically expose new layers of rock.  Have fun!

A family member was bitten by a bat a few years ago while getting firewood out of a shed.I have been buying her bat themed pottery that a friend makes  as a reminder. We have huge amounts of bats around our place  and best of all new ones migrate in during winter to stay in the cracks of the old growth fir trees. I can always see them by headlamp feeding on midges after dark during Christmas week.Some snowflakes and midges and a few bats viewed by headlamp makes a lasting impression.

This is another spectacular piece. Your ability to visualize the figures from within the stone is second to none.

:) Thank you. But we both know there are lots of carvers out there who prove that statement wrong. :) :)
Nevertheless, lets keep trying to get there.........

I like the progression shots.  Looks to be another amazing piece.  Can't wait to see it progress to final stages.

Could you add photos of the drill bit used, it's size and where you buy them. Also, how do you hold or secure the Jade piece while doing the drilling?

I bought a chunk of this at Q a couple years ago.  I've slabbed it but don't recall if I've cut a cab yet.  But it makes for a fantastic sphere!

Thank you! This is the first time I won, so I’m very excited! I also loved your Welo opal. It has beautiful color play.
