    T2 settings for civil war relic hunting in wooded areas

    After ground balancing the detector, how would you set it up for this kind of hunt? How many times?
    Thanks everyone.

    Depends on the area...farm land...river bed....plains...rocky terrain...sandy....etc etc.... There are so many ways and methods to dig a relic site no two answer will be alike. Some guys will All Metal it to death and do perfect grid patterns...others will try to cherry pick it never to return. Some will go dig top layer trash first then go for the deep stuff after that.

    You can set disc to 10-20 to get rid of most nails but still get larger iron....40 to get rid of all iron. Not that "all" iron is ever eliminated. You will get round iron and washers that ring up like silver. Just have to deal with it for the most part.

    I would dig anything above 40 myself at any relic site. I prefer 3 tones myself...but many prefer 2+.

    I'll assume not much EMI if any....so 80-90 sens should be attainable unless in nasty soil or a hot rock infested area. Best of luck at it.

    Relic Hunting
    I have a T2 Classic and concentrate on relic hunting. I'll usually keep my disc at around 10-20 and dig everything. Even though I pick up the iron, Colonial , Rev War and Civil War era sites can yield some pretty cool finds. One of my favorite areas to hunt I did dial it up above 40. It was an old railroad road bed and I was just worn out from digging old railroad spikes all day!

    Because the areas I detect have a pretty good variety of soil types I have to adjust my Sens up or down some depending on the area. I usually can't go above 90 without getting some false targets, especially in our red clay areas. Usually I keep it at around 80-85. I'd strongly recommend rechecking your ground balance if you you notice you're digging in a different soil type then where you originally set it. I average 40-50 range on GB in most areas but have run into some places that it finally balanced as high as low 70's. I also run 2+ tones.

    I'll freely admit I haven't been running any all metal modes yet in the field due to my inexperience with the machine. I'm still getting that side of it figured out, playing around with it around the yard. If anyone responds to your request with tips/info on that mode..I'm all ears too!

    I'm new to my T2, actually on the way to me, but I don't understand when you guys mention "I run it 2+"
    I will never, EVER, broadcast about all the gold I have found.

    2+... or bent nails, pull tabs, bottle caps. I run 2+ as well but your still going to dig junk but take the junk with you so you or the next person doesn't have to dig it again. I dig junky areas though, I would love to have a place to hunt that I don't get a signal every inch.

    If littered with iron I'd do 2 tone. If a little cleaner all metal mode.

    Thanks everyone.
    I personally set it at Disc-5, Sensitivity-80+, BP mode for the extra depth. Depending on the soil conditions you may want to run your sensitivity lower 60 and up. This is a great machine and I would suggest not canceling any iron as the good stuff is IN with the iron.
