‘Metal Detecting Stories’ Posts
Well, I finally bit the bullet and purchased a new detector. I went with a slightly used XP Deus with the nicer headphones (WS5), and the 11 inch coil. I wanted to give my first impressions, but I intend on giving a full review soon. This is insanely light. It’s the first thing you notice […]
So, headed back to a park I have hit previously. was trying to get hits that were deep. I got an interesting signal, but it was deep. So, decided to dig. Dug the plug and it was still in the plug. Dug some more and this really cool off center strike movie token came out. […]
The last two hunts have been very fun. I am slowly building my coin and silver counts. And along the way I am getting some surprises. I continue rehunting areas I have pounded with the standard 8.5×11 coil. Now I’m getting more depth and coverage with the NEL Big coil. It’s giant. In fact, I […]
Well, here’s one you don’t find everyday. As you know I have been trying the NEL Big coil out in areas where I have hunted before. It’s been pretty stellar. Today I have about 1.5 hours to hunt a place that has been very good to me. I have spent a lot of time in […]
This past weekend, I decided to head out to a new location that is somewhat old. I’m sure it’s been hunted as it is on a prominent road. In any case, I wanted to get out into the awesome spring weather and let the NEL Big breathe a little. When I first got to […]
So, as I have stated previously, I recently purchased the NEL Big coil for the AT Pro. My justification was that I was going to be hitting large, open fields this year in search of gold. But I also wanted something that would allow me to get deeper targets that I, and others, have missed. […]
So, on my previous hunt, I went to a school that had previously skunked me. I had hunted this school numerous times, and was impressed to get some good finds. On today’s hunt, I went back to a different school that had also skunked me previously. It’s one of those spots where you just know […]
Boy, it has been an incredibly long winter. I have had very little chances to get out to detect. So, that part has been depressing. However, the temperatures have been periodically broken as of late, and so I have been getting out with every chance. One of the things I did this winter was invest […]
So, I have been really trying to hone my skill with the 5×8 coil on the Garrett AT Pro. So, I have been hunting and rehunting old spots that are trashy and challenging. It keeps paying off!
My buddy, Goldnugget, let me hunt with him at a very old location today. Thanks Goldnugget! Found some good stuff and he got his first coin.
