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.
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.
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...
I had one more try at the property from the last trip. This time I was able to detect the back and the joining yard. I started late one even at dark and the very first target of the yard was a promising find...
Here is the video footage on the last couple of hunting trips.. Hope you enjoy!
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 have been testing a new type of camera here recently. This camera is a POV(point of view). It is a camera mounted in a pair of glasses. It is time saving and a lot easier to use than carrying a tripod and standard camera around. I will be doing a full review on these in the next couple of days. I wanted to share the hunt and video so you can see what I have been up to.
With rain and short days, I’m just not getting alot of hunting done. Luckily the last few days have been dry and I did find some goodies. First day saw me in Durant and I did find a few wheats and a 1928 mercury dime.
Emmit and I went to the place where I found the Walker yesterday on Silver Road. Emmit made a heck of a find. Don’t want to disclose it and steal his thunder but wow!
We had been there about thirty minutes when the first good target showed up for me. It came in at 10-35 to an 11-38????
I’m thinking wheatie or copper penny. But…..
I checked it out of the hole and hit 12-47 solid. Haven’t figured that one out.
Went further down the sidewalk and found a 1953 jefferson nickel. The signal jumped around 18-13, 04-12, and 19-10. That screamed nickel.. Notice how the second number in the signal stays close to 12.
Then right next to a new electric pole I got a 10-30 number not sure so I dug and at 3 inches this military button showed up. The back has “Superior Quality” printed on it.
We weren’t finding much there so we moved to a different road(still thinking of a name to call it)
Found a bunch of clad, including several nickels. But the find of the day came next. At 3 inches I got a solid 10-34 signal. Well I have to say this is one of the nicer ones I have ever found.
I did find two more wheats a 46D and 58D. I also found a neat key. Can’t remember finding one with this much writing on it or with a location.
All in all. SR and this new road is producing good targets!
