    If that property owner watched the show Diggers he would surely know that there were no great valuable items on his property. They monetary value of their finds are quite small for two guys hunting a week on the off limits type of sites they hunt. You should tell him to watch the show and he would probably apologize and tell you to have at it.

    Your lucky, if they hadn't seen the show he would have told his son to stay away from that strange guy scratching for pennies.

    They do there antics and speculation for time filler and to entertain children. Like it or not, you have to admit it's not fun watching someone dig pull tabs and trash. That would be the other option.
    I wouldn't say pre teen but its definitely liked by the younger crowd...I figured that out a long time ago.

    Lots of shows like this. Storage wars, American pickers, auction wars, barter kings. Pick your flavor. I like then all actually.

    I do not think Diggers hurts our hobby/sport, passion at all!
    If anything, it changes people's (people who don't detect) outdated attitude about metal detecting in general! It also opens up the possibility for the average person to get a chance to dig on some unique properties...
    Thanks for the compliment, by the way, I haven't been called a preteen boy in 52 years!

    I think 99% of those who watch either Detect or Know someone in their Family or close friend Circles
    who detects & is Interested/curious

    the other 1% happen by while searching for something to watch Hear one of them Yelling,
    or see them Climbing a tree & think "What The ? " and stop channel surfing
    long enough to watch.

    or are big on Natgeo, that they never change it
    except maybe to watch the news

    All I know is if I'm ever in an AWESOME nectar sector and dig 5 colognes out of one juice hole with great roundness I'm highly likely to do a few flips and bounce off of trees. If the didn't have the crazy antics would the show be more successful? Probably not but I guess we'll never know. I admit after thumbing through the other options on TV like duck dynasty reruns, honey booboo, etc, it is a welcomed show even though I believe it hurts our hobby overall. I see Terry's point about newbs, but the funny thing is I've seen a lot of older hunters (I'm 44 going on 17) using poor recovery techniques than newbs. I live in a small town and have only seen 3 other people hunting, 2 with Aces and one with an ATP, and am pretty sure judging on their swinging technique, they are copying Ringy and KG.

    Metal Detecting
    Here we go again. I can't believe the storm of controversy the subject of the " Diggers " brings up every time. Its not like they are tying you to a chair and making you watch the show. I may not have even gotten into metal detecting if the hobby of metal detecting wasn't approached in this show. I know these guys personally and live in the same town and believe me they don't act that way when here at home with no camera crews. Oh I almost forgot we don't want anymore new people getting into metal detecting anyway because that will be less for the rest of us to find.

    Some people think these shows puts a bad light on our hobby..

    Shows are not produced for people already in the hobby
