A small 1" x 1" silver jewelry box, wrapped with a string of pearls with a ............................................dead toad inside. I was so angry, I threw it as far as I could in the woods. My buddy wet himself laughing so hard at me.:rofl:

Maybe not the craziest, but 8 Hot Wheel cars in a single scoop on a beach in Oregon.

A smashed Esso Extra quart oil can in my yard. Not so crazy except I don't under stand how it got 4 inches down. Seems like you'd pick that up if you were mowing. House been here since 60's so who knows.

A leather jacket. The detector got the small buttons in front.



Active detectors: Fisher F19 LTD, Nokta Fors CoRe, Makro pointer and way too many coils.
Previous detectors: Bounty Hunter Discovery, Fisher F44, Omega 8000 V6, Minelab X-Terra 705, Fisher F5

It's a toss up between 2 "crazy" things that I have dug up:

1) digging near a side walk in a "bad neighborhood" , I had a 78 reading (dime signal), when I retrieved the target I had a handful of hypodermic needles.

2) relic hunting near the Pecos River, very close to a mesquite tree, while recovering an Eagle button. I reached into the dirt and felt a needle like pain in my hand and in addition to the button I had a scorpion in my hand.

I wear gloves when i detect now! Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Not the craziest but certainly the scariest at the time! One time while digging in an old trash pit I dug up a shovel FULL of little Copperheads! Another time I raked some Pine straw back with my (booted ) foot and a Copper head crawled across my foot. Lol, yeah, lots of Copperheads, Cottonmouths and Rattlers in S Ms. HH, Charlie

Detecting a old park in the late 70s before disc detectors were around and got a nice reading and found a metal box (like a basic tool box) and took a little to dig it up and when opened after out of the ground I seen something wrapped in a white cloth, so I thought I had something good only to find out there was what was left of a dead parakeet someone buried. Replaced it as fast as I could and went to look for somewhere I could wash my hands.

That was the one I remember the most, but have found many odd things over the years.
