    love hate relationship 1817 house!

    This site just refuses to give anything up much,ive hunted it a 100 hours or more and ive got 2 flat buttons,a 1902 barber quarter,and a small eagle cuff button that was found while trenching. The problem is the trash the house was lived in up until the 1990s and there is a 50 yard perimeter of it around the house it sounds like a machine gun going off everytime you move the coil. I know something good has to be here there are way to many non ferrous targets in the ground for it to have been hunted much but those targets are just modern trash and old pieces of copper and such.Anyone had a site like this before? I am a trash hunter but this place takes the cake any suggestions?Click image for larger version.

    What size coil are you using? You may have to use the smallest coil available if it's that trashy. Or else be prepared to dig trash so you can see what it's masking.

    If it were me I'd install my 5" DD coil on the F75 or maybe even my 6.5" eliptical concentric coil.

    I have given up on some sites since there are so many out there that are better when it comes to the trash-to-target ratio or due to diminishing returns. Even though a site is truly never hunted out, sometimes it's just best to move onto another location.

    Since the Deus is wireless, set the control unit on the ground under the porch and then take your lower shaft with the coil attached and crawl under the porch to see if you can find any goodies there with less trash signals.

    I have a couple of sites that are covered in trash, and yield good targets occasionally. It has not been easy!

    One idea is to pick a likely looking 10' x 10' square, and try to dig ALL of the targets out of it. This might take a little time, but MIGHT be worth it. I have found silver coins with the pinpointer, whilst picking nails out of the dirt! The other boys laugh at me, but when I find something, they laugh a good bit less heartily!

    After you do three 10' x 10' areas, in random likely spots, you ought to have good idea of what is in the ground.

    It can take me up to 2 hours to "clean" a 10' x 10' section.

    You could take up a section of grass (Maybe 4' square), and screen the dirt underneath, catching non-metallic objects too. I want to see anything promising come out of the ground, so that I KNOW good targets are really down there.

    If you need help, I am only 3.5 hours away!

    Best of luck to you sir.

    one of the flat buttons came from under the porch, and we have cut some spots out and looked through the dirt , the right kind of dish is there and thats how the eagle cuff button was found so there are relics there . I will try the 10 x 10 and clean it out and see what happens. Im no sissy when it comes to tough hunting but this is one them spots thats really really tough. Ive took a couple of people their who have been hunting a long time and they dont wont nothing to do with it.let me know when your coming down this way tom.

    Take your time and go slow but only when you don't have anything else pressing to do. If you can keep this as an occasional then I would hunt when time permitted. Good Luck and Happy Hunting.....Also take hunting buddies to this one so they don't steal the good ones....

    I'd grid and peck away at the perimeter of the house each hunt ...till crazy or digging too many targets (easy on the turf)then work shade trees farther out(despite the covered porches offering shade) ,the area where mailbox was back when(it may have been across the road or near it's later current site) .
    Clothesline area of the past , well or barn area where horses were watered saddled, worked, ect.
    Around the coal door if it has one. Near any thresholds.
    Back to pecking away on the grid the next visit.

    We have a place that started out just like yours. First few times we went we said,"This place is nothing but junk". The only reason we were going back was we knew the history was good and it is very close to home. After a few trips we began to get some good stuff. Still a lot of junk there but there is still good stuff to. After I slowed down and started to focus on small areas (Like stated above) I began to do better. Now I love that site because it's close to home and loaded with targets. Some trips there are very productive and some aren't but I know good stuff is there so I'll keep going back.

    Hi; Here there is a park that is "saturated" with trash. Thing is that when I started taking my time and digging only the good and deep signals I began to find the good coins underneath the trash literally. I'd start digging pullout a pull tab, bottle cap or some other trash and when I recheck the hole I'd find coins ad other goodies. ow every time I go there I pop silver. Last dig there netted me 2 Mercs and a Rosey. So go slow and try digging only the deep signals. Good Luck. PEACE:RONB
