First real hunt of the year

Well, I started the week making some cash with my detector, hunting for property stakes. Took all of about 15 minutes to find them. Property owner had rented a detector (Ace 400) from Taylor Rental and was inches away from the markers, but he did not have a pinpointer to lock in on them. Easy money for me.
On Friday I met up with Ray and we hit a local park that has been pounded by many over the years, but it is so big, that it will NEVER be hunted out. I did manage a few cool bling items and a War Nickel.
 Back of MENTER token:

I am learning more about the EQUINOX 800 as I use it...

Happy Hunting,

Got out a couple of times

   Boy am I feeling my age.  My back and knees were killing me in the wet cold weather we have been experiencing the past few weekends. The Equinox 800 is going to take me some time to learn. it is almost like stepping backwards to an earlier machine with the Minelab depth and sound. I do not think I am really going to learn this machine until the Spring when the ground is drier and conditions are more favorable. Well, until then, I believe my season is over for now... Research and reading...Shall it keep me occupied.

Equinox 800 ordered

   Well, the Equinox 800 with stock and 6" coils was ordered and has been delivered on Wednesday. Will try to pick it up Thursday afternoon, if not Friday morning. School takes up all my time Monday thru Thursday. Hope I can get a few good days to detect before the ground is rock hard. Will keep yous posted.

Approaching the Fall hunting season

   Hopefully I will be back in business with a new detector in September. I am going for the Equinox 800, but if I cannot find one in stock, I will settle with the Makro Multi Kruzer.

Happy Hunting

Not gonna be much detecting till Fall

Still have not bought new detector yet. Still trying to decide between the recovery speed and depth of the Makro Multi Kruzer and the Minelab Equinox 800. Both are waterproof to 10M, but the Kruzer seems to have the better target separation and recovery speed. Will keep you informed on my choice.

It's Been a hard year

Been out a few times in the last month or so, but just have not found anything really exciting. The dry summer and my depression of late have not been productive for detecting. Our spots are drying up, and it is difficult to find new ones. I am considering knocking on doors and getting permissions to hunt private properties. My only other alternative is to do day trips. get up early in the morning, travel to parts unknown and hunt till dark before returning home.
We shall see what the future brings...

Happy Hunting,
