Moist Soil And Gridding Produces Barber

We finally received about 3 inches of rain in the last week,so I took the F75 to a n 1872 church that I hunted in February. When I hunted it in February, I was only able to find one green Indian that gave very low mid 50's numbers. This time around I gridded off the side yard while hunting in ALL Metal with the Nel 12 X 13 Tornado coil. The Wheats all gave high 50 to low 60's numbers and were soft hits in the 8-9 inch range. The Indian Head read a constant 57-58 VDI and I felt that it was going to be an Indian before I dug it. The Buffalo Nickels both were reading 27-34 and though they were not loud hits, they hit well enough that the numbers didn't bounce much. The Barber Dime was about 8" and gave me a "wide" reading that was not very loud. I thought it was going to be a deep piece of scrap copper when I was digging it. I feel the gridding of the wet soil made the difference today...Thanks for looking.

You are absolutely right on the wetter soil helping. I usually grid search when hitting an open area as well. I can make pretty good time with the 11”DD or now the SEF 12x10 Butterfly on the F75 and then slow way down once targets start getting more numerous.

Hunting like that shows you really know your machine. Nice work!

Ronstar, yes the bigger coils are nice for covering more area. I try to overlap the edges of the grid and sometimes I use the small flags that are used to mark utility lines. Thanks for the reply.
