    Night Detecting

    Was just wondering how many MD at night. During the summer months those day's here in Texas do get pretty warm. 8)

    Re: Night Detecting

    I did lots of night hunting back in the 80's but today I hunt only during the daylight hours.

    I see night hunting as far to dangerous for many areas in America today. Not far from our house a young man was shot and killed as he knocked on the door of some strangers house to let him know his car was being ravaged by kids. The guy told police that he thought the kids attacking his car were trying to break into his home. The second he heard the noise at the door he fired his shotgun through it. The boy lie outside dying as this man stood by him cussing him out.

    The case went to court and the shooter got off scott free.

    This nighttime Good Samaritan deed landed this boy 6 feet down.

    My point is, people are really jumpy today and it's not safe to prowl around at night THing.

    Most of my detecting is at night in the summer, due to the busy family schedule during the daylight hours. It's a lot cooler for detecting during the night. The places that I hunt have overhead lighting so it's not too dark. Gotta watch out for those skunks!! Came close a few times. Sometimes it's 2 or 3 am before getting home.

    It doesn't really get dark during my hunting season. I guess that makes up for the short season we have here in Alaska.

    I've lost track of time and hunted until 1am more often than I care to admit. I'm sure glad our midnight sun comes in the summer time.

    Re: Night Detecting

    When I was younger and more stupid I would sometimes hunt lawns at night at old homes in the area. I am ashamed to say I was to lazy to ask permission and just did it at night. I would use a large box around me and set it on the ground to hide my small light while I retreived the coin. The next day you couldn't tell anyone was there digging in the yard I was so neat.

    But it is a dumb idea now as homeowners are prone to shoot first and just bury you so they don't have to answer questions. At least in my town.

    Re: Night Detecting

    I hunt at night quite a bit...for the pure and simple reason that I have about 4 months of good hunting here in the summer,so I need to double my time that I hunt! I always night-hunt in an area that I am familiar with .Plus there are less people around,its cooler, the parks,schools and beaches are pretty well lit and I also have a headlamp.Usually by midnight all the creeps have called it a night and I have never run into any trouble.The local cops know me by now so I dont have problems there.
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow
