    You will be rewarded! I have been keeping all the old style of pulltabs this year to get a count of how many I dig before I pull some Gold. It's already in the 400+ range and no Gold yet.

    Yes, many people are litterbugs and all we can hope for is the next time they throw some trash on the ground, they also throw a ring!

    Yeah, but just think, next time you won't have to squat for those targets and they might have shielded some real goodies!

    I make myself dig at least 25 low conductors, pulltabs and can slaw usually, before I disc out nickels and anything below 40-50. Then I shoot for coins to reward myself.

    You had a busy day!

    Judging by how much junk was in this area, and the fact that I probably won't hit it again for at least a year, there will be a whole new crop of crap for me to find next time!

    Hey, all in a day's work in our business.
    Keep in mind it can always be worse.

    Here is what I dug in a couple of short hours in my local park the very first time I ever used a DD coil.
    They say to learn ya gotta dig everything so I did...I just happened to hunt in the exact wrong place to use a full sized DD coil first time out with no experience using that coil.

    After this I vowed to learn my detectors, coils and the behavior of trash targets so well I could confidently avoid most of this useless digging...and I eventually did.

    I get the idea that most are still trying to cull out the trash ahead of time, but you help yourself by digging some things that by all hints is probably trash. I know coin shooters are more interested in the coins...
    After clearing the area you just hunted, the time to go would be asap. Right back over the area you cleaned. Relics are just as important to find as coins to me. Think of how many relics fall into the signal range as the trash. Think about those signals that range around the pull tabs...gold is hard to distinguish. I set up to knock out some iron and hate to do that. What makes me dig every time is the "ROUND" signals...
    I know some of you know what I'm saying. There is a noticeably different sound to a round target regardless of material.

    That's a lot of hard digging but the type that reveals the golden metal when it is present in those low conducting targets.
    Back in 1985 it was considered to be that if you dug 2,000 pull-tabs that one of those signals would be a gold ring on average. Fast forward 34 years, how many more pull-tabs have entered the ground compared to gold rings?
    I hope your reward isn't far away and I know from experience that lots of nice goodies that resonate like trash await the patient digger.

    I hunt in all metal and didn't leave any non-ferrous targets behind. That's why I dug so much junk. It's a hiking trail that's been "improved" over the last 100+ years. Lot's of fill dirt and gravel with very little virgin ground. I did get a 1909 wheatie though. . Probably an S-VDB, since it's too crusty on the reverse to see the VDB, and it took a small hit where the mint mark would be on the obverse.

    "I hunt in all metal and didn't leave any non-ferrous targets behind. That's why I dug so much junk." cudamark

    I can tell! I laugh at myself when I take off walking, thinking I'm going to do 2, 3 ,4 hours of hunting. Sometimes my pouch is so full of crap I dig that I can't lug it anymore and I end the hunt because I'm gonna have to carry it back as far as I walked.
