    I'd start at the building and spiral out from there. Good Luck!

    Also the line from the main building to that outbuilding under the trees in the background might be good.

    I would start at the front porch, and in a grid pattern, work my way down to the pine trees by the person's head. Then move to the back yard starting at the house working out. Then go and do each of the side yards. Add fresh batteries (just being funny) and repeat all grids from the opposite direction you worked them from the first time ! That looks like a great place to be, and you don't want to miss anything.

    Any day of hunting, whether good or bad is better than not hunting at all

    As tempting as it is to run up by the house and start, I always like to start away and work my way towards the house. Personally, it gets me tuned into the ground conditions for a particular site and I think its easier to pick out the good targets once you get close to the house where there is a lot of iron/trash in the mix. I'll usually start at about 75 yards from the house and work towards it, sometimes I'll even go 100-125 yards or further, just depends on how things are going and what I'm finding. I've located many outbuilding sites, fence lines, horse/wagon trails with this approach. I'd say that 9 out of my top 10 best finds were in the 40-70 yard range from an old stone foundation. People didn't sit around the house back then, they were out on their property homesteading/getting dinner/surviving, etc...

    However, I'm still human so sometimes I'll run up to an old stone foundation more excited than a fly on a turd and start swinging and zigzagging like its my first time out. I might pull a button or musket ball, but then I'll gather myself and put a plan together. I'd hit every inch in the picture you posted.

    I would start at the pine trees at the front of the house. (94 acres a year or two? ) not if you invite a few us from treasurenet.
