Finds apparently come at random

After not finding any nice gold rings in over 5 years, I found a gold wedding band last week on a junior high football field (read: middle school) . I had covered about 1/4 of the field, so I went back yesterday for a few hours to try to get at least to the 50 yard line!. AFter find nothing but clad for the first hour, I found a small gold ring with the Xterra705 using the 9" 3 KHz coil. (Turned out to be 14K gold filled from UNCAS, a cheap costume jewelry ring. :( I decided to do two more widths of the field, and on the next to the last trip I found the larger ring--14K TW wedding band. The TW is a trademark for Tessler and Weiss that makes nice designer jewelry. I have no explanation for the sudden finds except luck and hunting junior highs!

Yes! Finds are random, and you can have a great year followed by a drought that can last years. In my case anyway.N/T

I have a theory that says, "Random is lumpy." or things just tend to go in streaks. This is based on very solid research and the experience of one special detectorist.

Streaks are random!

Had the same type of luck with the rings I've found. Nothing for 4 months and then 5 rings in a month. None were as nice as the wedding band you found, but it's still nice to see any ring when you dig.

Random, streaky. or whatever you want to call it, finds are all a bit of chance.
