    I said "Never!" for 2 reasons. The ground never freezes solid here, heck it's summer that turns the ground to stone. IF the ground did freeze solid here (or anywhere I lived for that matter!) I would freaking move! How do you guys handle the long cold winters up there? Oh that's right, silver litters the ground up there! Tough situation, silver fever and the cold... Brrrrrrrrr!

    Officially hung it up today, was keeping my Ace in the truck but put it away for the winter.
    Temps in the low 30's and dropping for the foreseeable future, too cold for me !

    Been going out in this cold-er snap for short hunts. I just cut it down to when my hands have no feeling then throw in the towel.

    My remaining hunt spots are such a brutal challenge to dig about anything, I simply bail out from swinging a coil when my "shiver" instantly hits after just a step outside.

    It happened just today. I needed a few supplies at home, the day had maybe 1.5 hours to hunt before sundown, I got all stokes to detect and swing back by the Walmarts afterwards. Those goose bumps from the instant that I stepped out to the car told me "it just ain't worth the misery."

    I am no wuss but I detect for relaxation and excitement. I can't get that here in overworked hunt spots when the chill is in the air and the day is short. Ain't worth it.

    Yep, target probability plays a big part of "when is it too cold". 2 years ago I was hammering a ghost town field. IHs by the dozen, silver, relics, jewelry everywhere. It was rare to find coins in the 1900s. I was out there even when it was in the 20's as long as the ground was thawed. I second guess 40's for a new ground prospecting hunt today!

    Living in Australia means it's never to cold to be out detecting.
