Went with buddy SilverFiend to a new town in hopes of gaining new spots for the year. We stopped at a larger home place from around 1896. From the get go we were having problems with large iron in the ground...
Recently Gonehunting for History and Silver Fiend http://www.TheSilverFiend.com has been teaming up to hit new properties. Most of the time we find a few goodies, but this last weekend was a slam dunk for us both...
This last weekend I was fortunate enough to hunt 3 days. 2 of the was some sort of a struggle.. Whether it was a construction site or a courtyard that every hunter in the county had hit..
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.
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.
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.
Here is the video footage on the last couple of hunting trips.. Hope you enjoy!
When going to a new town and I really don't have to time to research specific sites, I will sometimes drive to the older parts of the town and look for specific things that I know can have the potential to hold old targets. Brick sidewalks or where they were is a good spot to check.
Not expanding your detecting area is like a Chemist with no diseases to cure.. For the last several months I have not hunted that much do to the fact of covering everything in my area. After a while, you get in a rut and you will get rusty.. well at least my shovel did..
I was driving through a neighborhood that I had hunted numerous times. There is a two story that has been vacant for years and I have never had a chance to hunt it. As I was driving by, I saw a man walking around doing some repairs and I stopped and inquired about the home.
