    Patriot/F70. Does "SL" stand for silver maybe?

    I've been running SL since it gives a serious depth increase at lower thresholds while being more quiet than positive threshold in DE. I'm generally about -2 and 50-75 sensitivity. This is the fourth silver (2 rings, 2 coins) on the same set of batteries. Was in a heavily hunted courthouse lawn...

    Eclipse beach hunt

    Drove north to Nebraska to see the eclipse. My memory card crashed right at the totality. All I got was the crescent through a plastic filter. Afterwards we parked the MH at Harlan County Lake. While my son and granddaughter went swimming I spent about 20 minutes swinging the beach. All the clad...

    I think I found my first meteorite.

    In my back yard. I was trying out my new TRX. Got a signal just below a nickel with my LRP. I figured it was a chunk of foil. Pinpointer was screaming but I couldn't find the metal. Turned out to be this. It's definitely not hematite. Fusion crust. Rust and what appears to be nickel flakes...

    Thank you First Texas/BH

    There's customer service, then there's Bounty Hunter. I have a Discovery 3300 I purchased at a pawn shop some 8 or 10 years ago. Recently the internal speaker came loose. Still worked. Just rattling around loose inside the case. Besides, I don't use the speaker anyway. But I got tired of the...

    Old silver in my back yard: The sequel.

    Decided to spend a few minutes in the back yard with my DFX. Found this about 30 feet from where I found a silver spoon a few weeks ago. About the nicest merc I've ever found.

    Old silver in my back yard

    Fedex says my Treasure Baron returns tomorrow. While waiting I decided to swing my Lone Star since I rarely have. In my back yard. Five minutes in I get a nice signal. This turned up about 4 inches down. Sterling, from 1917-1923. I grew up ten blocks from and have many memories of...

    Roccky Mountain Store (Kansas)

    It was a gorgeous 70 degree winter day in Kansas so I decided to visit an 1880's general store site. It's a fairly remote area but the drive was worth it as both the day and the scenery couldn't be prettier. My Treasure Baron is with Keith Wills at East Texas Metal Detectors for its 20 year...

    Ghost town

    The town of Rumsey, KS existed from 1883 to 1885 near Evansville, headquarters of the Comanche Cattle Pool. It had a post office and maybe 3 or 4 other buildings. It had never been detected until today. No coins but some cool relics including a C-F-10-82 45-70 casing. Beautiful Kansas winter...

    Anyone who turns their nose at a $70 Gold Digger needs to see this!

    My best friend got a Gold Digger as a gift. Never detected before. Wasn't really interested in it. He's more of an arrowhead hunter. I finally talked him into learning the sounds and going out with me. He got hooked after finding a Merc in his yard. He's only employed part time right now so he's...

    2 days at the high school track

    The local HS football field is having its 1/4 mile track replaced. The asphalt was torn out and it's bare ground right now. I got in about an hour yesterday when the temp was 70. Today it was 35 and windy. About 30 minutes and my fingers were plenty cold. So far I've covered maybe 200 feet of...
