    Where do you detect?

    my favorite is beach detecting. but I don't live near the beach. closest is 5 hr drive for us.

    so at home I don't detect as much as I would like to because that draw is not there. tot lots are ok. kinda hard to dig. the woods is alright.

    we have a creek on our farm so I am going to go out today and try my luck along the creekbed. there are some very old stone wall/bridge or something out there I want to detect. Plus hubbys daddy who grew up on that land said there was an old road that went into the main town that everyone used. didn't know that so will try the horse/buggy road and see what might pop up.

    if I lived on the beach I would detecting everyday but the 'regular old land' around me is not as fun to detect.


    so what kind of area do you live and what type of areas do you detect?

    Water hunting is pretty much out here DNR thinks they are GOD. Do a lot of parks, some are very old. Farm fields, always the ones with that one tree in the middle. any place we see with a old drive way, school yards, Churchs, drag strip parking areas, boat landings, major road and sidewalk tear outs.

    sounds like you got a great list of hunting spots.

    I need to find more hunting spots in my local area.

    farm creek a bust

    I left my pinpointer in the camper. took out the detector but left the pinpointer. honestly I was lost without it I was so disappointed about not having my pinpointer it ruined me. Camper won't be back cause repair time is like 3 weeks. stupid place is about 1 hr away UGH UGH

    ROOTS the root systems in the woods is just insane hard to dig. I can't. I can't even hack thru it the creek got me nothing but some pull tabs and obviously hubby drank a ton while working the farm there cause I found beer cans like crazy...which sucked

    the old homestead was hard. plain hard. I tried to discriminate and all that but the endless beeps of just piles of junk around the caved old house was annoying. I have to learn to weed out trash more or something


    and buggy. bugs all over. note to self, spray up before hitting the woods/creek again

    BUT I HAD a hell of a good time just hearing the beeps was fun enough right now. got me back in the mood to detect.

    Beach and Shallow Water Hunting
    Ask about "the old swimm'n hole!" (If the creek is large enough?)
    Down steam side of the little bridge. (People use to toss coins for good luck.)

    Me...on the beach or in the water....and a few out of the way places.

    Anywhere there is nothing interesting or valuable or pretty around. I have a sixth sense for these areas. Usually drive a long distance and come home tired and dejected. Love it!

    Living in a small town has created many opportunities to get access to places others only can dream about. I live in walking distance of a large ballpark and playground. There are several of these in our town as well as other kiddie parks, schools and fields where the carnivals set up from year to year. And also I live near a racetrack which has many thousands of people coming in four or five times a year. There are also many historical homes and two streets have homes that date back to before the civil war. Our town was burned during the civil war, as was all the small towns in this area. One town 20 miles away had a cannon ball inbeded in one of its log building on main street for years. They have now removed it and put it in their library. I suppose they inspected it too make sure it was safe and determine why it didn't explode. Many relics and older coins have been found arounf here and not many people metal detect, which makes it great for those who do. Good Luck. rockhound

    Usually where there isn't anything good.
    "A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything." Friedrich Nietzsche

    "You ask where I live. I cannot tell you. I am a Voyageur, a Chicot, sir. I live everywhere. My grandfather was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."
