    [Video] Plz help me figure out why I cannot find this target! ty!

    So I was three hours into digging around and I got pretty sweaty and exhausted from the heat (90s and humid) so maybe I didn't try hard enough.

    Maybe the target is just crap?

    I swing the detector one way and it picks up 90s beep at about 8". The other way it picks up hardly anything. Maybe a coin on its ridge?

    The hole is over 8" deep and my pinpointer is getting nothing at all. Maybe I didn't dig deep enough . . . I kinda ran out of steam.

    It seems weird, like the beep is moving. Should I go back and dig it up? Or is it just crap? Or do I just suck at finding targets??

    Any advice on technique? I was trying to use the tip of the coil to pinpoint the location of the target. Pinpoint mode wasn't happening.

    Big iron has a tendency to be off from where the metal detector says it is, I would say its deeper and off to the one side, the depth meter is not accurate because the size of the object is throwing it off...

    Could be a belt plate maybe a buried jar of gold coins, maybe a sewer pipe...

    Turn your iron audio on and you will see that the target is a very large target and you are catching a high cherp off the end of a long signal. When you hit your pinpoint and the tone kept on going as you swept to the right (you south paw!) if you would have kept sweeping to the right eventually the tone would have fallen off.

    Interesting. I wasn't expecting it to be a large target at all. But that makes sense. I found a very old pipe sticking up out of the ground and the old map showed a homestead here. So I think it will be a good place to hunt. ty!

    When it gives you a depth, its a coin sized target. When you dig 10" and it says its less than that. Its something big down there.

    Swing the coil 6"-12" above the hole to see if it still rings out. if it does, it's something deep. If you want to dig it, fill the hole full of water and come back after it soaks in.

    And let us know what you find! I imagine an iron box full of gold eagle coins.

    Also.. maybe not the case with garret but with my mxt you can get hot rocks when having mixed signals... for future reference.. glad you found your pipe this time
    God grant me the serenity

    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.

    I completely get the "ran out of steam" bit. :P Might I recommend a detecting shovel, if it's appropriate for your location. It makes all the difference, especially in hot dry conditions.
