    Strangest encounter you've ever had while metal detecting?

    Metal detecting gets you out and it allows you to witness a lot, but what's the strangest thing you've ever encountered while metal detecting? (Situation, scene, event, or even a strange find.)

    Re: Strangest encounter you've ever had while metal detecting?

    This is a true story, even though my buddy Baldingboy says Im making it up.

    I was hunting at the Beach at Lake of the Ozarks a few summers ago. I had a permit to do this as it is a state park. Anyway I was hunting very early in the morning and I noticed two young women on the beach. They got up and went into the water. A short time later I heard screaming and one of the women had taken the other woman's top. The woman missing her top was in the water and her friend had run out of the water holding her top. The woman sans top came up to the beach, not even trying to cover herself and I thought there was about to be a fight when they started going at it right there on the beach. Not fighting mind you. I excused myself, got in my car and drove over to the other beach that the permit allows you to detect at. Nothing happened there and I was the only person there that morning.

    Metal Detecting

    Re: Strangest encounter you've ever had while metal detecting?

    While water hunting a lake reservoir in Northern California I was approached by 5 Spanish speaking male adults. All 5 of these guys were extremely angry and they ordered me off the beach or they would "kill" me. They said: "This is Mexico and we don't want you here". They had pure hate in their eyes, so I just left. Sad at what is happening in my home state.

    I think I would have counted down from 4750 and if they hadn't stopped I would have done the same

    mastereagle22, I hate to say I agree with your friend, this story is like playing urban legend I would have made myself comfortable, got out my snacks and a drink and relaxed for a while. Unlike Shaun, I won't be leaving until I see they are near crescendo, then I will give a standing ovation

    Shaun7 & I were detecting near a Windmill, when 3 lovely young ladies started taking pictures of each other. To our surprise & slight distraction they started stripping off. One of our better hunts (it wasn't even a warm day, we had coats on )

    And we made sure they had left safely with all their belongings before we left the field

    Re: Strangest encounter you've ever had while metal detecting?

    Another encounter


    I was hunting a local "community garden" near dark when I was approached by three young men who thought they would take my detector. I had a little eagle and my lesche at the time. I looked the three over figured out which one was the "leader" by him running his mouth the whole time and when he said "Watcha gonna do there are three of us and only one of you" I said "well I don't know about three of you but I will take one of you out and it will be YOU!" Needless to say they walked off without the detector......

    I'm not so good with a camera

    I vote my own story - BANNER - always brings out what every field should have as well as gold, but it does effect my find rate

    I have not been detecting long but this just happened. (so far nothing truly extraordinary has happened or no great weird finds)

    the other day on vacation at the beach, bent over to dig a find and when I came up not 1 foot in front of me was a man and his 2 kids.....scared the daylights out of me, heck I jumped straight up...lol....how I didn't see their feet in front of me I will never know

    when I detect I got into a zone. I truly don't know what is happening right in front of me...not a good thing actually

    Metal detecting is Like A Marathon, Your Running fast then start Slowing A Bit The You Find Something Interesting And You Pick Up the Pace!!! The Only Difference is If You Are Addicted to this Hobby there Is NO FINISH LINE HH Chug And Red
