    It hurt to find a toy

    My first time seriously hunting with my Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505. I have had it for months and played around out in the driveway. Last night after work decided to take it to the next level. Got a sound about 4 inches and found this toy. The pic is blurry but the back says Disney. It was made for Mcdonalds. It is plastic and the only reason I found it because that metal spring looking thing was right beside it. I was not wearing gloves and wore this big blister on my hand, man does it ever sting. I will be hunting again tonight. The yard I am hunting, the house was built in 1890.

    Re: It hurt to find a toy

    sorry to hear about the blister wireless. This hobby is all about alot of sweat and yes some blood at times....not too often on the blood I hope. Keep cracking at it and I'm sure we will be seeing some really nice things from you. Try and do some research of old maps for your area and maybe you can find a field or section of woods that once had a house there. See if you local library has a local history dept. or old maps that you can look at to help in your research.

    Good luck.

    It does pay to wear strong but thin gloves while digging treasures. I sometimes carry a plastic towel like those sold at Wal-Mart for working a hole I dug with the metal trowel. Plastic won't scratch metal very easily and it saves on the hand. I just pop the plug and loosen the soil with the metal trowel (Mighty AP Digger), and then remove the soil onto a cloth with the plastic trowel.

    Best to you and that 1890's site should produce some great finds!

    Ouch Wireless. I certainly feel your pain.

    I found some gloves in wal-mart at the fishing department that seemed to be great. They have the name Lakers on them. The inside of your hand part of these gloves are blue. They were I think under $3 for the pair. They aren't those super strong rugged leather gloves, however they have some durability. What I love about em, is they have the feel of isotoners. They fit your hand very snug and allow you to still feel with some sensitivity.

    I use them for all work now. Love the way they feel.

    Re: It hurt to find a toy

    What the heck are you digging with that would wear a blister into your hand like that? You need a better digging tool and not press down so hard with the palm of your hand. My hands and nails are basically cut up all the time from digging,and I should wear gloves more often,but hate to unless I am in a dump or glassy area. I have a pair of doeskin work gloves that are lightweight and tough for those areas. ...
    I go a great distance,while some are considering whether they will start today or tomorrow

    Re: It hurt to find a toy

    I was using a hand trowel. It was hot and I was sweating, by the time I knew it was a blister was when it started stinging and the blister was open.
