I hear those hunted out stories all the time as well and realize that the guy telling me is an octogenarian. Not that that's a bad thing and God Bless him, but, the machines they used to use back in the day really can't compare to the machines in the here and now. And besides, one of the older fellas told me once that a particular park was a SEA of silver. It still was, but far and few between I'm afraid! LOL!

Nice haul and keep up the good work! I used all my clad to GET MORE EQUIPMENT!

Similar experience a few years back. Local park that at one time was a ball park and an old national guard armory next door. My son and I were detecting the old armory property when a gentleman came by and told me that we were wasting our time as he had dug every coin out of those two properties. I had dug a lot of clad out of those two properties and we were just looking for stuff I had missed. A few minutes before the gentleman came by my son had just dug his first silver coin. I did not have the heart to tell the gentleman that he missed 14 silver coins in those two properties. I still go back occasionally to hunt that silver coin that I am sure that I missed.

When I'm detecting and people come over and start asking questions I point to my headphones and say in a loud voice "I Can't Hear You" specially if it's kids.

I had a guy stop and tell me he had been hunting a tear down lot not far from my house. Said I wasn't going to find much. That his Teknetics T2 was the bomb. I was using my 705 with the 6" Digger coil.
He got very quiet and somewhat angry when I told him over the last few days I had pulled over 300 wheats, Indians, war nickles and various silver dimes from the lot.
Either he had no idea how to use his equipment or it was a ploy to get me to leave the lot.
4 blocks away I had a gent show up with his detector, told me the same thing. I told him I had been there about 2 hours and pulled 52 wheats and 7 mercs out. People can sure be funny sometimes.

Use some reverse psychology--tell them " you're right", they're happy and you are too.
