    Wink First land hunt in awhile

    first land hunt in awhile - in water you use different muscles than land hunting
    I use a long handled scoop in the water - but on land I use a knife and kneel down for almost every target - lots of ups and downs
    I got a large relic hunt coming up and have to get in shape for long hours on land
    went to a small field that gets pounded - but over the last few yrs Ive still been able to get smalls
    after about an hour I had a few small pieces of slaw and tiny pieces of lead and other metals - heart breaker was signal
    that went off as an 81 on XLT which is in silver dime range but have had a few coppers ring off round that too
    - dug down 7 ins. - saw a disc and thought I had a coin or a dandy - saw edge was silvery - got excited
    wah wah - aluminum weights and measures disc
    I went to an area of field where ive gotten seated half dimes and 3c pieces - a friend has also gotten small silver here
    including a 3 pence tree coin - I got a 64 on XLT which is usually a penny - dug down and had it out of the hole - soil was
    little muddy in this area so pulled pinpointer out - got signal and push soil around and saw small rim of a coin -
    definitely not a penny - thought I might have another seated 1/2 dime - plucked it up and gave a rub - it was silver but mud had
    dried on it and I could not make out anything - pushed crude off one side with gloved thumb nail and saw shield crest and
    pillars - YES! 1/2 real - happy I went out - couple of buttons I think are 1600s - couple 1800s...spoon handle piece
    I believe is late 1600s early 1700s - musket balls I believe are older ones
    Guys I believe that hammer here - fly and try covering too much ground at once - plus they crank discrim. and I believe that is
    why they miss the smalls (ive gotten more 1/2 reales from this field over 20 yrs than any other spot plus some cut silvers)
    - Im just glad they leave something good for me

    Pounded!?...wow...coulda fooled me! I get it tho, low and slow. I've got a detecting buddy who's in his second year, and we'll unload, gear up and start swinging. I look up 5 minutes later, and he's 50 yards from me! And he wonders why I pull good stuff basically in his footprints. Great digs, Casper...that is a NICE pile of awesome, old relics and coins. Ddf.

    Nice Haul Casper! I too have been guilty of running thru an area, for the last month I have been forcing myself to slow down, and even turn my discrimination down, and have
    been pulling stuff out of lawns I had covered 3-4 times already.

    there are times - especially when you travel far to a spot - that your time is limited and you have to cover as much area as possible
    you hoping to hit a honey spot that you can then work - but this spot is not a huge field - maybe 3 acres - guys have been telling
    me that theres nothing left for the last 4-5 yrs - I slow down and run low discrim. -which you can tell by the small pieces of slaw
    most of us pull the trash out so not as much there anyways - I tell a lot of new water hunters - if spot(s) are near you - take the
    time to cover it all and try to get it all - take bad with the good so you know you left nothing behind except for the fresh drops
    I all can say is - if you are not or never getting small silver - in spots where you get everything else - then you are probably
    going too fast
