    Not sure how you'd gauge a block at a beach but I'd give a berth of about 25 ft to avoid any interference issues and would also avoid his trajectory if it is discernible, other than that its every man for himself. I've had guys give me the bad eye just for being in sight, have had guys refuse to say hi or chit chat after me saying hi to them, making very clear they resent my intrusion. Doesn't bother me, I make no further efforts to be friendly and get on with my business.

    These days I hunt alone but don’t mind some conversation with others as long as they aren’t doggin me.

    I detect behind them... and sweep my coil under their steps... if they stop... I begin detecting between their legs for the target that stopped them.

    :P

    I turn my machine off and walk up to talk to folks but I am amazed how many guys run away! You'd think i was on fire lol. Of course I want to hunt but five minutes talking won't hurt. I have had guys run past me. I was plodding along slowly and these two guys came up fast and got ahead of me, then slowed down. Right then I found an 8g white gold mens ring in their wake and made sure they knew all about it, showed them and everything. They did end up beating me because the beach narrowed down to nothing except a ten foot wide stretch of their holes and a 4 ft cut on one side and the waves pounding in on the other side. I was too new to know what to do.
