I am a new Scorpion user. My primary interest is in nugget shooting. I would appreciate hearing from those of you that are experienced users. I primarily hunt in Tuolumne and Mariposa counties and would enjoy hearing from others that hunt that area. Thanks-Jim

I sure wish I was in an area where there was raw gold to be found. I use mine to look for the ring type gold so I'm of little to no use on the subject. Keep us posted on your progress...especially some nugget pics!!

For me, it's more about location with the Scorpion. If I find a good sports field, out comes the Scorpion over my other rigs. I just set mine to Disc and switched to Auto and put the Sens. and Disc. to the Initial Settings, with a barely audible audio and swing away. Don't get discouraged by the amount of foil and canslaw your are sure to pop up 'cause that just means if you get over some gold, the 'Stinger will tell you about it!! The Scorpion is pretty chattery, but you'll get used to it pretty quick.

You'd better get to humping and use that puppy. You're leaving a lot of gold rings and jewelry behind.

Yeah I still haven't used the 4.5 inch Sniper for mine. Got to get that puppy mounted and go ring hunting.

The only thing that I hate more than digging pulltabs is missing a gold ring!
