    Hey Great Idea...I have a better idea..How bout you stick that Bottle Cap with a memorial penny up YOUR hole.

    The tags arent made to fool people in thinking there is something Awesome in the ground. I know the tag I found rang up like a zinc penny. so i dont know what you would be expecting digging it up. I was much happier it WAS a tag and not a Zinc Penny....Some people have a Sense of Humor...
    Maybe you Can look online and Find one....HH ...GL...Best Wishes...Cheers mate!!

    That's the problem with sarcasm in a written post. It often fails to come through as such and just makes you seem like an idiot. Not, calling YOU an idiot, just in general of anyone who doesn't specifically state "this is sarcasm". I didn't get the sarcasm in your post when I read it, it just seemed like you were joining the hater crowd.

    I never would have dreamed in the beginning my little tags would ever cause such an uproar and cause such a great divide in the hobby. But as like in any group you have arrogance. Im glad that iam a man and not a kid, if I were a kid planting these tags and saw the hatred toward me I would prob have hurt feelings. But Iam not bothered by it and will keep planting the tags. Chances are you will never find one anyway unless you hunt my area. If you do Congrats and if you dont like it oh well. I dont like alot of things but cant help it. Planting a small tag in the ground is not threatening to the hobby. Not covering you holes, leaving trash on the ground. tresspassing, and having a bad attitude is threatening to our hobby. You know having a nasty attitude is far worse than slipping a little copper or brass tag in the ground. Attitude can get you kicked off a site or turned down. As for private property "Old Ironsides" if the property owner let you dig a hole in his yard he could prob gives two big ol F***s less if I stuck a little piece of copper in his yard after I removed a bunch of trash to begin with.

    So you can have your opinions thats what makes this country free but as for me Im planting more and will continue to do so. Thanks to everybody who agrees with me and stands by me!

    now seriously? why would anyone in thier right mind put something in every hole they dig? and hiding them under roots no less? you actually thought I was serious? I was only laughing at the fact of how everyone thinks he`s flooding all thier parks with his tags..., I truly do not think any fellow detectorists goal is to make it harder for the next guy. It seems he only places a selective few here and there, which is perfectly fine by me. yes, it is a shame for some that feel its such a hardship to bend down and dig a friggin tag out of the ground, but youll have that. If thats what makes them enjoy thier hobby more, then let em. from all the replies on this topic I cant find one person that dug one up and it totally ruined thier day, there was nothing in the news where a guy dug a tag and went home and shot himself. I live in the northeast and will more then likely never dig one. and as for hater crowd? yes, i strongly agree it exists, in more ways then one.

    The degrading language reveals the "aluminum" among us. Follow the golden rule. It's good karma.

    I think both sides of this have valid thoughts. We can easily see that tags ≠ tabs or foil ... because of RARITY. If everyone does it, then tags = trash.

    Suppose people only tagged by park signs or other obvious location markers (e.g., corner of ye ol' schoolhouse)? Like a bar code, you go scan there to see whose trail you're following. You only claim the right to remove the tag (or replace it with your own) if you find something sweet at the sight? As I mentioned earlier, I'd love to see someone post "I found THIS after I found your tag." What do you say to a little friendly one-upmanship?

    But please don't toss down the tabs ... my old Lone Star can't even tell the difference between iron and silver!

    Thought I'd do my part to help this thread hit 100 replies. I've liked the idea of the tags since I first saw them on JackSquat's videos, and I'd love to find one. I can understand why some people wouldn't, but don't understand why those folks would allow themselves to get so worked up about it. Anger and frustration do a whole lot more damage to the person feeling them than the one's they are directed to, so give yourselvesf a break and let it go. At least console yourself with the fact that, more likely than not, Jack will end up digging one of his own tags some day (which will no doubt trigger some time-warp, end-of-the-world, parallel universe event that will wipe out mankind).

    Jack: Keep the vids coming, they're great. And let me know if you want me to send you some grown-up dip. That minty stuff you chew is just breath-freshener.

    Well this is going to upset some beach hunters out there. I know a guy who lives down at the Jersey shore and he told me that he was tired of seeing all these guys sweeping their detectors in front of his house. He told me the had a couple hundred ball barrings and a jug of bb's. He tossed them all about the beach.

    Tejas Digger...

    For the record, I've dug SEVERAL pieces of foil that ring like Silver with both my Garrett and my Explorer SE. It's called ALUMINUM FOIL, which rings very high on your machine, unlike what is known as TINFOIL...which rings much lower. Just some food for thought. This Aluminum Foil is much more prevalent at older sites that I've searched.

    As for this topic, I think its kind of funny and neat at the same time what Jack Squat does. Never seen his videos, but kind of interesting.

    Also, as far as leaving "TRASH" behind, its all in the eyes of the beholder I guess. I wouldn't see that as trash personally. At least its made of copper. In all honesty though...I'm sure Mr. Jack Squat digs FAR FAR FAR more trash than he leaves behind.

    Just my 2 cents.

    There is no such thing as "tin" foil. It's all aluminum. Has been for a VERY long time, since WW2.

    For the record the aluminum foil that's up in my pantry right now will not ring up high on my detector. Mr. Cranky mentioned the kind of foil that rolls up into a ball. That type will not read silver on my machine.
