3 Silver day!

I've gotten a number of silvers from this park and have covered all but the real trashy and high iron areas, just usually passing through them on my way to elsewhere. Today I decided that I have to take on the beast and FOCUS, if I had any chance of finding anything among the null and repetitive high tones. The grass was pretty high in spots so I upped it to 28 sense with the SE Pro and 11" coil. And yeah, call me nuts for the 11" coil on those settings, but for some reason it works, noise, null and high tones. That's one of the things I like about the 11" Pro coil.

About a half hour in I get this really good high tone. I mean really good. VDI, VID, shows at times a 6-31, at others a 1-28, sometimes a 27 and a 24. I dance around the spot for a good four or five minutes trying to determine, via IM off, IM on, sensitivity adjustment, etc.... what this is and if it's a digger. I find a nominal centerpoint after bouncing the coil and doing the dance and decide to dig. Have a pinpoint target with the carrot at the 4 O'clock of the hole that's really strong and after pulling bits of aluminum foil out of the dig prior, dig that target and it's a 53 D Rosie! Check the hole and at exactly the same position have exactly the same carrot reaction. Put that Hori, Hori in higher and deeper into the same area and afer a good pull out pops a 56 Washington! At this point I am flabbergasted! Have run into many old timers who said the park was hunted out.

Continue on the quest and low and slow, checking out every high tone and digging a few nails and some beer bottle caps, cause ya never know, I come up on a 1-29 that will not go away no matter how I dance round and round. Dig a 6" diameter plug in some of the worst gravel and shale mix in dry ground I have ever done, and at the bottom of the dig sits a 44 Merc. Now I'm beyond flabbergasted, I'm stunned. I've walked through this area a dozen times on my way to somewhere else. Shows ya how much I know.

Low, slow, HOT AS HELL on settings, and let the frequencies of the SE PRO do the work.

GL & HH out there!


And I'm doing some serious research on the NOX 800. I'll be in the market for one here probably during the Winter. It looks like it can solve some of the ground problems I have that can't be well defeated by the SE Pro or the DEUS.
