Max'ing out at the pole barn helps me net 2nd silver

Went to a location where a pole barn use to sit in the 1930's. Many others have hit this place but I figured I would give it a go with the Max. The dirt in the vicinity of the pole barn has been definitely been bulldozed and moved around. It was evident by finding deep clad and bottle caps and other modern junk. The dirt is heavily contaminated with iron junk, bottle caps, wire, etc and was very slow hunting. My ultimate goal this afternoon was to learn more about what the machine is telling me. I have learned that the tones that are "jagged" and "raspy" sounding at each end of the signal are the bottle caps. Like my other hunt where I found my first silver dime, when I hear the smooth repeatable tones buried in the iron junk, DIG! The wheat and Canadian pennies that I found really "elevate" themselves away from the iron. TID does jump around but then I hone in even more and just perform tiny wiggles where the target is. This is when the TID becomes a little more steady and the smooth sound of something good "rising out" of the iron ashes.
The merc dime was measured at 6" with my Garrett Carrot. Even with all the iron that was popping and crackling, the smooth tone emerged from the contamination. Nice - sweet - mellow - soft high tone sang out and this was with my sensitivity set at 3. Little baby wiggles back and forth with the coil isolated the target precisely. Very nice surprise indeed and I'll take it :smile: I may have to get back there at some point and bring the small sniper coil with me.

GB 91
-3 threshold
3 - 4 bars of sensitivity
5x8 coil
volume level at 4
Iron disc 44
Zero Mode

This is something I have said from the Start. Cant rush the Max it is just to fast on recovery, slow down to a snails pace and it will really surprise you what it can sniff out in the junk

I agree Buddy. I also hunted like this with the Pro. What I find different with the Max is that a little sensitivity goes a long way. I should have put this in my original post up above: Before I knew it was a merc dime that I had hit on, I fooled around with the sensitivity. Cranking it up 5,6,7,8 in sensitivity made the situation worse as it started "pulling in" more of the iron that was in and near the target. Thus this is where I had worse / jumpy TID. When I turned it down, I lost the target with 1 and 2 bars of sensitivity. 3 and 4 bars of sensitivity provided the best information audibly and visually.

What's a pole barn? :shrug:And the AT Series have always been recognized as having a keen sense of picking out the good targets amongst the junk. Once you learn the MAX.....good things really begin to happen. You did real well on that hunt. :thumbup:

John this pole barn had three walls to it. The fourth side (by design) was open. It was basically a shelter area for farm equipment(1930's). In later years (40's and 50's) arts and crafts were held under it for the neighborhood children. The name comes from using round wood poles to construct it.
