This weekend, two of my Bigboyshobbies customers came down from Missouri to get a little hands on help with their new Minelab CTX3030's. The first part of the morning we worked on swing speed, griding, and target sizing. I have to say the younger of the two was on fire.
I headed to a area of open area that what I thought was pre 1900. Now the area had been pounded by other hunters in the past. After hunting for about 2 hours a marker was found dating it to the 1930's so I left.
Well it's a new year. 2013 was a slow year for me. I didn't get to cover the ground like I did in the past. I am hoping to change that this year. The last day of 2013 I hunted in Ardmore, Oklahoma with the XP Deus and found several wheats, a few relics, and one last silver, a 1934 Washington quarter.
Have you ever had one of those spots that no matter what machine you take you still seem to find something that makes you want to come back? Well this is one of those spots.
With the few days of winter weather, I've had time to put together an XP Deus. This video is from a couple of hunts within the last couple of days.. Hope you enjoy...
Gonehunting for History
I've been struggling to find a place back home to hunt. Most of the homes and lots that I have hunted in the past are drying up. It has been taking hours just to find one good target..
I haven't taken the XP Deus out in almost a year and I was really wanting a change of pace. It only took me a few minutes of swinging it in my target garden and I was ready to go. A slightly modified Deus Fast with version 2.0 software.
With the rain, my cabin fever was too much. The first day I was hunting between storm banks. These are spots that I have hunted and re-hunted. I had cleaned out almost every high tone and was concentrating on the lower tones...
Earlier this last year I found a vacant lot that had a 1890's homeplace on it. The very first hunt there produced a silver dime grand slam. I got a call of a hunter that was going to be in the area, so I loaded up the CTX3030(contact me for details) and headed out...
