    Low and slow still misses targets as some targets only appear when you approach them from a different direction. I hit my high yielding areas from every angle to get as many goodies as i can. =)

    a great spot should be gridded correctly to get the most out of it and you still will miss something

    I need to stop what I did today. Was digging with a few folks, and was making some remarks like, go slower, don't raise the coil at the end of a swing, that's not a straight line, you're digging in circles, that takes too much time, have you tried triangulating between three points to keep your bearings, why are you digging a 6" hole for a 2" deep target, here, have some of these orange flags to mark your finds and on and on.

    I gotta stop doing this. They are getting better!

    but it is hard not to try to help. it is when they start listening to you that they begin giving you a run for the money

    It is about experience in detecting and experience with your detector. Heck, I spent most of 2018 learning my Nox 800. Been detecting since 1989. I can't imagine how much total newbies to the hobby pass over when they go out and buy the more advanced detectors. Best examples is seeing people hunting the beach using the banana swing or golf swings. Won't find much treasure in the air.

    dirtlooter,...….. I'm detecting 30 years now and still learning and the experience only helps me more... Metal detecting is like fishing.....

    10 percent of the fishermen, catch 90 percent of the fish...… just because you own 5 poles, doesn't mean, you know how to fish....

    maybe 25 % of the people with a metal detector, find 75 % of the good finds..... I know dozens and dozens of people who say they own a machine, and never use them... basssmann

    Amateur detectorist Terry Herbert unearthed the Staffordshire Hoard in 2009 using a metal detector bought at a car boot sale for £2.50 and hunting a field that had been hunted hundreds of times by experienced detectorists.

    Moral... its not always the detector your using... could be timing and luck of the draw... and just because you did not find something... does not mean something isn't there.

    The "factor" that most likely changed that field was the farmer plowed the field a little deeper than normal that day.

    Other factors always are at play every time you turn your detector on... ground conditions at that moment you pass play most IMO.

    Both men... land owner and Terry became millionaires that day.

    Charles Garrett made a statement years and years ago to the effect of. You could go out with an army of detectorists and search the bejeebers out of an area and still not get it all. You know? after 40 plus years I'm finally convinced he was 100.1% right.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I too am 100% convinced of that.

    I've pulled too many good targets out of "hunted out" locations to think otherwise.

    No such thing as hunted out. Hunted down, yes. I have one spot I have been to about 6 times this past month. My truck is getting tired of going there. I didn't realize how much STUFF I had brought home, until I started looking for a few "missing" items today. I did find them.

    Site was hunted since the CW centennial in the 60's. Some folks still go there. The last three weeks I have used the machine to find nails and such and have resorted to a shovel. I have at least a month of relic cleaning and sorting to do. I have a gallon jar full of CW relics. Now, some is broken glass and a lot of nails. I mailed Creskol a thick envelope of ration can pieces for restoration, they aren't here anymore. Some of the glass can be identified. I have parts of a Baltimore Glassworks flask, another flask, a Millville fruit jar and others. But I have a lot of very nice stuff in the jar. I have taken a few items out, like eagle buttons, but not many. Sometimes you have to use the machines as a compass, and resort to a shovel!

    The stuff is still out there.
