    Ever forgot/lost your metal detector ?

    I wonder if someone ever forgot/lost his metal detector after metal detecting ? Losing a pinpoiner happens sometimes but does this also happens with metal detectors ?

    I've never lost my detector while hunting, but I've been so excited about going that I have left it at the house and not known I had left it until I arrived at my spot many, many miles away!

    Once, I got to an area but had to hump a couple miles through swamp, woods etc., finally arrived to the spot I wanted to hunt, and realized I had not brought my shovel.... live and learn I guess!

    We'll sort of. Have gone to the lake a couple of times only to realize I had thrown my land machine in the car instead of the Tiger Shark. I learned that the land detector needed to be tucked away in a back closet so I only have one to grab. When I have finished hunting my detector doesn't come off my arm until I am setting it in the trunk. I have read a number of posts on this board over the years of hunters who have either left their detector behind or worse, leaned it against the car and then drove over it as they were backing out.

    I've forgotten fresh batteries when I know my MD is getting low and had to cut a trip short but I've never forgot the whole MD before.

    I did lose my Pinpointer once and had to retrace my steps a ways down a beach to find it. I haddent had a hit in a while and made it about a quarter mile before I realized it was gone. I either dropped it of forgot it but in the end I found it.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I have forgotten at home after arriving at spot
    but have friends that have left behind car and back over them - left on roof and had them fly off on highway to be run over by others
    and a few that left on a bench at beach after having a great day - so excited to get treasures home they left behind
    some went back and got it - others were missing when they got back

    I went out and noticed that the battery cover fell off in the car, after walking 15 minutes out in the woods. Two or three of my batteries fell out on the way there, and I found them along the trail on the way back to the car to get the battery cover.

    That question made me think back to basic training when we had to tie boot strings to our weapons and then to ourselves, wrists, belts or whatever. They were called dummy-cords..lol.

    I have not left a detector or pinpointer yet but fresh batteries is familiar, I have done that a couple of times and now have a fresh pack sitting on top of my pouch in the second bedroom with the detectors. I like the others, have heard of others leaving them against the car and running over them or knocking them off and getting down the road before realizing that it was not in the car. After a long day, it is a very good possibility that it could happen.
