Just got started in metal detecting(Garrett Ace 350 , and Pro-Pointer) for hobby. Live in Asheville, NC ,and own a farm in Bristol VA.Thanks for all of the great posts-a lot of great info from knowledgable folks.
Spent a week at the beach and now have the MD bug real bad! Found a lot of pocket change, a silver earring, 2 toys, and of course.....trash. Most importantly found out how fun metal detecting can be. I'm hooked!
Questions.....Any interesting sites to hunt in Western NC? Any clubs?

How about you, any luck locally?
I did hunt a neighbors family farm, and found an old spade (along with a million shotgun shells, and a million bullet casings). Unfortunately, that little farm didn't bear any fruit. With so much history around us, there has to be some great finds out there. I've been getting a little frustrated.

I know that Biltmore and the downtown area of Asheville would be the hottest places right off the top of my head.
I have heard that the equivalent of Fort Know was once right on the French Broad river below the Woodfin area. I will have to
dig into this a bit more. Also, there are a lot of old churches, ball fields, and the like which might make decent targets if permission is
I have only used my older White's a few times and am still getting the hang of it. Once I find my first pieces, I know I will be hooked.
BTW, I am towards Leicester.
