Nice find, and I'm sure the Vaquero

will continue to surprise and impress you. All too often hobbyists can get caught up in all the modern detectors and start to refer to and even rely on the visual TID read-out. Sometimes they might try not to but unconsciously it can happen. Then they work the same locations with the likes of a good Tesoro that lacks any display distractions and we have to rely of the detector's audio response and raw, gut performance .... and then it happens! Keepers start to appear from out of nowhere from a place we thought was pretty much worked thin.

Reading you post this morning just made me decide to load my 'black' Vaquero w/6" Concentric and take a look at a few dug up places when I get some chores accomplished. best of success to you if you can get out hunting on this Veteran's Day.

I am definitely guilty of this. I over rely on the digital readout and convince myself not to dig.. but I have been re-training myself to dig solid tones with this V.. and keepers have started to appear.

I would like to compare and contrast between the widescan and the concentric to understand better how each work in my soil.

I hope you were able to get out and hunt a little today between the rain clouds and found some keepers yourself.
