‘Metal Detecting Tips’ Posts
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 […]
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, […]
There is a park that is a go-to for me. It has produced a lot of coins. I have had to be patient hunting areas, but it has been well worth it. I have hunted with the NEL Big there, the stock large coil, and am now working it over with the 5×8. As you […]
