My gracious wife fully endorsed these hunts.  She knows I get a lot of happiness from the hobby.  My plan was to get up early and try to get gold at an old school sports field.  So, at first’s light I headed out.  Upon arriving, I discovered that the field was gone and they were […]

So I have trying to get permission at this old schoolhouse for a while now.  As luck would have it, their daughter played on my a sports team I coached.  That finally led to an okay on the permission.  As soon as I started hunting, it was obvious a lot of dirt had been moved.  […]

So, I decided it was time to start learning how to find gold on the Deus.  I know there are lots of strategies for this.  However, I wanted to concentrate today’s hunt on using zero discrimination with full tones.  I wanted to see if I could glean as much information hunting the mid range, as […]

So I have been touting the awesome ability of the XP Deus in the iron and trash.  Today I went to a newer school and was pretty much skunked.  The ground was like concrete and the signals were deep clad.  I think they made several additions and moved dirt.  On the way home, I debated […]

So, I am getting more and more confident that the XP Deus is everything I have wanted in a detector.  I know that’s saying a lot.  But I think it’s true.  When I first got the detector, I really wrestled with everything.  I came from the Garrett AT Pro.  I was used to making judgment […]

So I found an older map that has shown a few areas of promise that I didn’t know about.  Again, it’s all about the research.  One of the areas had “Sch” on it.  I presumed that “Sch” stood for school and research played that out.  The placement was odd, as it is a wooded area […]

I’m not gonna lie, I am impressed with the XP Deus.  I went to a site that I have pounded and not had much luck at.  I previously got a WWII collar pin at this spot, but that was about it.  It was frustrating, because I thought I had nailed down the location of a […]

As I have stated many times, I love finding things in public places.  When you can find a virgin site in a public place – that’s something special!  I recently found a virgin site on public park lands.  It took a lot of research and hunting to find this spot.  Between me and a buddy, […]

I am quickly becoming a real fan of the XP Deus.  Case in point.  I found a new site.  As I have stated previously, I love finding spots that are on public lands.  There is something about finding treasure right under people’s feet that I love.  Anyway, I found an old (for this area) site […]

So, I hit another place that I have absolutely pounded.  I had literally been there 3 minutes.  The first good signal I got was a deeper signal that sounded odd, but had a good tone to it.  I dug down and hit a big rock.  Dug down some more and got a 1954 rosie.  Unreal.  […]
