    All Types Of Treasure Hunting

    Hey! I'm working here!

    So I'm at the beach before Sun up the other day working the towel line at a surfing contest. As the sun comes up I noticed there are at least two other guys out detecting. A bit later, I see an 80 something year old guy swinging some type of White's metal detector coming in quick from my right hand side. Next thing I know, he cuts me off and starts working the towel line I have been working all morning, going in the same direction I am. Now, I understand I don't own the beach and he is free to detect anywhere he likes, but come on, really? You are going to jump in front of me by only a few feet and start working the same line? Wow. Just wow.

    I've got to be honest, this is probably the first time I've ever been mad while detecting at an another detectorists for any reason.

    Are there people out there that actually think this is okay? The whole cutting somebody off and taking their line thing I mean?

    I would have asked him nicely.

    Then i would have him to F*** O**....if i wanted some intimacy, I would have stayed home with the wife, so again, F*** O** and tell your story walking!!

    LOL.

    That must have been the same guy that did that same thing to me a few years ago on a July 5th morning there at Hunt Bch. He could see the line I was working at the water line, stepped right in front of me and about 10 feet later hit a gold ring. p*****d me off. NO, that is NOT acceptable behavior.

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    It has happened to me twice that I remember:

    First time was on Virginia Beach. The guy that I did not know, pick up a Rolex right in front of me. I have never been back to the beach since then, the early 1980's. Some how I do not remember being upset with him for finding the watch, it was a beauty and he did let me hold it. I have yet to find a real Rolex. I keep searching, maybe some day.

    Second time in fresh water during the mid 1990's I moved over and kept on detecting. No more than 20 feet later I found my best ever necklace, a 24K, two ounce beautiful piece that I still wear today.

    Which ever way, "luck" as it may be, is part of our hobby, enjoy it. Every find by each of us is "special" something someone else did not find. There is plenty of items yet to be found, go get one.

    Happen to me last summer on Tybee beach. I was working a cut where I dug a silver ring. Out of nowhere some lady walks right in front of me and starts swinging. Pissed me off at first until I saw she didn't have the proper machine for the wet sand and she did the pendulum swing. She didn't dig anything in front of me. I was plucking targets behind her. Some folks have no courtesy or common sense not sure which one it is sometimes.

    You could walk around them and then jump in front of them to see what happens, but you hate to stoop to doing what they did. Might be interesting to see if they say anything though...

    Yeah , I just had this happen. I’m like 3rd in line for groceries and they have lots of items compared to my two. A new checker arrives and says “ok next in line..” The guy next in line doesnt move so I move towards the new cashier but wait for the other side’s customer that DID decide to move over. She sees I have two items and says I can go first. Then the guy that was in front of me shows up and says something like “sir I was in front of you, didn’t you see me?” So he goes in front of both of us, late to the game. I’m still residually pissed. Why did the ahole have to piss off me and probably the lady when he was next anyway.
    In your case the guy may be one of those that just walks a straight line. He’s in his mode oblivious to others. If he doesnt say much of anything to you he’s one of those on a mission - just let him be. Any attempt at making things right will leave both of you worse off.

    That old dude was definitely on a mission. And I'm sure he probably was oblivious to everybody but me has he came at me on a diagonal from the parking area straight across the beach in a straight line to get in front of me and then work the line I was on, no doubt at all was intentional in my mind. you know it wasn't that long ago my mother was pounding into my head do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Now the saying I think has changed too, "me first screw everybody else."

    A younger me would have wanted to run up and either trip him ,or drop him from behind with a boot to the back of the knee.
    Cutting ahead of him would be fair turn about ,but I'd probably just let him go today after shouting a couple insults ....

    Luckily I don't have to deal with this stuff, but I see no reason just to walk around him and cut in front of him. You said he was just a few feet away when he cut in front of you so I'm sure he could not hear much, for your running a Sea Hunter PI if I remember correct.

    Effort is Important, But knowing where, can make all the difference!

    Ive got a local guy who likes to wave to you ...... then step in front of you. He seems oblivious...... i just step a foot or so to the right and keep on going just like i do when hunting behind my hunting buddy. Lot of water and beach no need to let it affect your day because even if you point it out .... most dont care.

    I wouldn’t cut off anyone detecting in front of me, that’s bad form... not a good look for a 47 year old.
    But when I’m 80? .... hell yeah, what are you gonna do about it sonnyboy?

    Exactly! If I pass someone hunting down the beach, I try to stay out of their line. It's obvious when you're following someone the lane they're working. I'll cross it, but definitely try to stay out of it. Usually working different speeds anyway, so rarely an issue. That being said, if someone comes out and sets up directly next to me when Im out wading, we're gonna have an issue...
