    Accessories?

    Brand new to this. Just picked up a minelab go-find 66 and I was wondering what are some essentials you folks take with you on your journeys?

    I was thinking of getting a Hori Hori knife for digging, but after that...kind of lost. Any help?

    While waiting for member comments - you might browse Brands > Minelab. I found a few threads with others using the Minelab GO-FIND 66...

    I recommend a Lesche Sampson T-handle shovel and a pinpointer.

    I second that. The pinpointer makes recovery fairly quick and easy. And a good shovel doesn’t hurt.

    Any small shovel to start, a nail pouch to start, a cheap pinpointer like the gp pointer to start. If you plan on beach hunting get a long handled screen or hole type scoop- save your back, as for the hori hori- make sure the grip is comfy, i picked up a good cheap one off amazon. Once you decide you're in this for the long run go for the lesche, garret pro at pointer, etc..

    I carry a Hori knife and I think, especially when asking permissions or hunting parks,etc. it is much less intimidating to the public than carrying a shovel. In many people's minds, shovels equal big holes andproperty damage.
    Good luck and HH

    Thanks for the replies folks!!! I did pick up a cheap pinpointer, a Hori knife, and I foldable trench shovel. Of course the Minelab came with headphones.

    I guess I need a "find" bag? And probably a strap style canteen. Some of my medications cause dehydration, so I have to watch that.

    I didn't know if there was something that nobody ever thinks to carry that isnt a necessity, but comes in handy.

    I always carry a small, kitchen-sized towel to put extra dirt on. Makes it easier to put all the dirt you extract back into the hole.

    I cut a 14" circle out of an old tractor inner-tube. I can put dirt on it when dry so can tip it back into the hole and I don't leave a spot on the grass that looks "dead", and when wet I can kneel on it.

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    I use a sand bag to put the spoils on, even mud doesn't stick to it. Easy to dump back into hole. Knee pads or something soft to kneel on is a pain saver on the knees, especially for older guys.

    Depending on the time of day and temp, and where you're hunting...... backpack with spare batteries, headphones, first aid kit, hat, sunscreen, hiking boots, snake guards, and bug spray.

    This may sound wimpy but gloves. You will find glass and gloves helps reduces cuts.
