it takes time, as with anything. You have to do the work. Keep at it and you'll find something. Or call it quits if you dont want to. None of us find magic bottle holes, we put hours upon hours of work and research into digging a few lonely bottles, and then half time we dont find anything good. Some go years with out a good find. Its more about enjoying what you learn along the way then bottles... all though bottles are the ultimate goal...
Talk to that old timer more, have him show how and what to look for, how to dig. I've seen people dig holes all over the place and miss all the bottles completely. You need experience and a little help if you can find it!
