    Racine/Milwaukee Bottle digging/detecting

    Moving down to Racine after 24 years in the USAF. Been doing my research on the area. Hope to share some good sites with other detectorists. If you are interested when the weather gets better, let me know. Here are a few finds from Ghetto Milwaukee. Lots still in the ground. Also looking to dig bottles, strong back ready to roll.

    Born and raised in Racine, WI. Love metal detecting (had Ace250 that I sold but plan to upgrade by February 2015 and get back at it when the ground thaws) and bottle digging. If I had to choose one I'd choose digging when I get the chance, love the stuff, can't get enough . I discovered buried bottles while metal detecting which led me to bottle digging. Have only dug really early 1900 pits but will be on the hunt for 18's early this year. I'd love to have a partner for larger digs that may come up and if anyone is in southeast Wisconsin and needs a partner I'd love the opportunity. Best of hope to you all.

    I'm in Kenosha and am always looking for swinging my MD around. It's just hard to get out the house with a 3 yr old and wife. Want to hunt? Let me know.

    Hi, I am in Racine. I have been to the beach in Racine, but that is about it. Where can we MD, seems I bought a MD'er and then read all the regulations and it's kind of daunting. It looks like everything is off limit's. Parks, waterways. Where have people been detecting ?

    Just can MD on public land like schools and parks. You can MD on private land but must first get permission from the land owner. Not State parks.

    I'm in Kenosha, lived here 3 years this November. Don't own a MD yet, had a Viper Trident a few years ago, and a cheap radio shack model. The radio shack model broke during the winter when I stored it in my shed and I just never got the hang of the viper trident.... but honestly I don't think I really gave it a chance. Ended up selling it when we were buying our house. I've got my eye on a Garrett AT Pro, looking to purchase that in the next few months so I'll be ready to start when summer comes. And hopefully I can find some interesting sites for my other hobby - photography!

    Where in Racine have you been digging? I've been trying so hard to find old sites to dig! I just started digging and collecting old bottles, have found a bunch of grafs and a bunch of older bottles without embossing, but would love to find older stuff!! Let me know where I can do it! Thanks for posting ������
