    Best Detecting Channels on youtube?

    As someone who is new to the world of metal detecting, I have found a wealth of resources on youtube pertaining to this pursuit. By example, I am learning technique, the standard tool-kit, legality, etiquette, best practices and ethics.

    So far, my favourite American Channel is that of 'The Hoover Boys.' My favourite British Channel is West Country Clegg. What are your favourites or recomendations, if any?

    Best regards,

    Jacobgosling,

    HooverBoys is definitely one of my favorite US channels. Recommend also checking out Brad at Green Mountain Detecting, he has a great channel as well. I like Hans at TerraGermania for my favorite German site - it is in English. While I watch West Country Clegg on occasions, he is a tad bit over the top most of the time. I have a couple of favorite Brit channels that I watch to include IronHeartedGog (Gordon Heritage) and AddictedtoBleeps. Gordon Heritage is a Minelab tester and his videos always include little known tips for Minelab products. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    Thanks for the additional suggestions. They are all new to me except 'Brad at Green Mountain Detecting' whose channel I was watching just today. Some of those guys on youtube never find anything of interest. The Hoover Boys always deliver at least one interesting find. Clegg is 'very' enthusiastic and a little over-excitable. I guess I'd be pretty excited as well if I could dig up a viking hoard in my backyard...lol

    I live on a very old property in New Jersey that has seen several invasions by the British during the Revolutionary War. My family were burnt out twice. Part of my house was built in the 18th, and part in the early 19th centuries. There was an Inn, a General Merchandise Store and a Mill on the property. I'll start detecting my own land this Spring, and then move to the cousins, friends and neighbours. The Hoover Boys would love to dig my turf!

    Best regards,

    JG,

    Sounds like you have enough property to keep you busy for awhile. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    A lot of channels I love watching. As they said above, can’t get enough of Hoover Boys and Green Mountain Metal detecting. Also aquachigger, he gets up to various adventures these days. There also used to be a channel that doesn’t Post anymore called Relic Roundup with Cowboy, some Good vids on his channel with amazing finds. If you like civil war I’d check out Gonediggin, Dig’n Texas, Tag Team recoveries, the list goes on.
    Never stop hunting

    I recently watched a youtube video on the 'Green Mountain Metal detecting' channel. The guy found a Continental USA cuff button on the middle of the woods. This guy is almost psychic! Agreed. Great channels all.

    Having been approached to do a "reality show" on metal detecting, I am extremely suspicious of weekly Youtubers finding superior items on every hunt. Some of these folks start out innocently enough, with some fantastic and legitimate artifact, coin, and jewelry finds. Then the pressure for more "clicks" gets under their skin, and the need for more of that easy Google Adsense money infects their bloodstreams. Soon they are "finding" items that were purchased. Not all, but the VAST majority.

    IMPORTANT! - The above statement is MY Opinion. It may not be based on fact. Then again, it may be.

    Try out Stealth Diggers - where Digger Charlie records hunts that majority of stuff goes into local museum eventually. Colonial materials and historical features across landscape. And Exploring to FIND these sites, so they can be hunted....
    Not Thursday is another one of the same group...also hunting in New Hampshire.

    I am a born cynic and share your skeptical nature. I am sure many of these youtube treasure hunters are seeding the ground. However, there are tell-tale signs which indicate a legitimate discovery. I believe the Hoover Boys are one of the more credible channels on youtube. When a coin is dug and there is a well-impacted mineralized impression left in the soil where the coin is removed, that speaks something for the legitimacy of the find.

    And the excitement and emotion of their discoveries is something hard to fake. If they 'are' faking, some of those Hoover Boys deserve an Academy or People's Choice Award.

    I do find it curious that so many of their finds don't appear on camera until after they are dug and lying on the surface in the spoil or the hole.

    Nice to make you acquaintance and I love your hat!...lol

    Best regards,

    Thanks. I'll look up those 'Stealth Diggers.' They sound like an admirable group. And the others as well. Jeesh! Isn't anyone detecting here in South New Jersey?

    Suggestion: Go rent one of those tiny backhoes and after detecting, your lawn needed reseeding, right? Take off 6" detect, and put it all back and on and on and on. I did that in my front lawn for gold and did pretty well, but it got really messy! But it was a lot of fun. We dug down about 4' and then left the hole open, panned the dirt in a water trough, like they get for large animals and filled it back in by hand. The gold was there but small. Lotsa fun and messy!

    You have to look at Aquachigger’s older videos of his amazing and massive underwater coins find. Probably one of the most thrilling detecting videos I have watched.

    I have a lot of acres, and it's mostly wooded. Regrowth over old farm fields and pasture really. I guess I could dig up my own back yard, but I don't think my family and neighbours would appreciate it if I showed up with a back-hoe to excavate their property...lol I live in a small town that was invaded by the British during the Rev War. A privateering center. My detecting opportunities are jaw-dropping. I've enjoyed collecting, but I will doubly enjoy digging up treasure for myself. Rescuing history as the boys say.

    I'm most looking forward to detecting the bottom of the Mill pond adjacent to my property. I've gotten some great advice here on TN about what equipment I should buy.

    Best regards,

    Thanks Susan. I'll look him up. I am most interested in detecting the bottom of our Mill pond, so this would be of particular interest to me.

    I watch a lot of them and I guarantee you, having done video editing and cinematography on motion pictures, the kind you can BUY, a lot of what you are seeing is faked. I won't mention any specific channels of course, but my favorite was where the guy dug a shiny buffalo nickel about 6" down. I watch them for entertainment value. LMAO
