    Is is best to metal detect when the soil is wet?

    Due to our heavy rain this past week in Northeast Ohio is it a good idea to metal detect?

    Its debatable, but I think in all my years doing it, when we lived on our farm growing up hunting Civil War relics during the summer wed get times where wed get very little, and as soon as it rained we went over the same spots, and those crappy signals were now seemingly amplified and sounded so much better. People think its crazy, but the rain almost seems to put a halo effect on ferrous, non ferrous targets. Id say its not a bad idea not unless that rain caused your area to be extremely hot and muggy. Which if youre in Ohio it should be fairly nice outside. As far as water goes, it cant hurt, the only time youll have to worry about your detector is if you drop the control box/screen into water.
    Digging up relics one day at a time. Always looking for fellow detectorist to go out with and enjoy this hobby. Been swinging a coil going on 24 years now this year and loving every minute of it. Looking for members to join our group in Arkansas. PM me if interested.

    Everyone is just one swing away from finding that one target to change your whole life

    Also I want to thank all my great friends on here for keeping me going through all these years. Couldn't do it without yall.
