    Anyone metal detect at night?

    Wondering if anyone here metal detects at night, and if you have a specific strategy. I dont know anyone else who is interested in detecting so its hard to find a partner, im in southern NH.

    I got lights, self defence and the like, but im still afraid to go out haha idk

    a beach is one thing, but wooded areas worry me greatly.

    Oh yeah, hunting in the woods at night with headphones on is a GREAT idea!! Step on a pit viper, no fun!! Lots of guys down south hunt at night to avoid the heat, and those who trespass to hunt often do so at night. I have hunted schools and lawns at night to avoid the heat but don't think I'd go into the deep woods at night due to bears and those pesky pit vipers (copperheads and rattlers). Many modern machines have back lighting to make it easier to hunt in the dark, just choose your places to do so wisely.
    Ya won't find nuthin' if ya don't hunt

    I hunt at night alot, mostly tot lots and random fields, maybe a street tearout when able. Don't think I'd try the woods for fear of biting insects and the like.

    Because of my experiences, hunting for shark teeth at night with UV light a few years back...I recommend the beach or the park for night work. Uneven terrain, obstacles, and holes! I had three painful, but could have been worse, injuries night hunting. You just can't see hazards. Good luck to you!

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Went to the beach, found nothing, but later on after sunrise hit a spot I went to with my dad about 15 years ago, crazy thing is all the stuff we found and put aside was still there untouched! Crazy. Found tons of 1800s pottery and glass and a ton of iron.

    Also a bunch of weird iron shoe bottoms I think? Different sizes from child up to what i imagine would be a man, however I cant find anything online about iron soles, or iron shoe bottoms.

    I like to hunt tot lots at night. All gold rings come to the surface to play at night.
    You can remove my words but you can't remove my THOUGHTS

    If you remove the words without a direct conversation with me, you will be deemed a lowly COWARD

    You may remove the ones who challenge your views, but you are the one thats LOSES in the end.
