    Back in the Saddle - Silver and a Buff

    Hey folks,

    Hope youíre doing well! Iíve been doing more lurking than hunting lately. Itís been a busy season at work for me lately and I havenít been hitting the dirt at my regular pace.

    My brother and I decided to meet up today. I scoped out one site early this morning which was a bust. Itís where an old school was demolished but the site has been too significantly altered since it was taken down.

    My brother and I then met up at one of our old, faithful spots. Itís a permission which has produced well in the past but doesnít put out too much anymore. Within the first 20 minutes he came running up to me to show me he had found some silver (Iíll let him post the details). I couldnít believe it, there arenít too many decent signals left here.

    I altered my CTX today to discriminate less and I bumped the sensitivity way up looking for deep, oldies. It worked out. After finding a few wheats I had previously missed, I got a wispy, deep signal. Probably at 7Ē-8Ē. It wasnít even consistently repeatable. I was in a dig it all kind of mood so I went for it. Man was I shocked when I saw a silver dime flip out of the hole and onto my drop cloth. It mustíve been deep and on edge. Pretty awesome!

    Toward the end of the hunt I was trying an area that produced well in the past. I got a mixed mid-tone at around 7Ē. Well, about 4Ē down while digging I saw a nickel flip out of the hole and onto my drop cloth. Huh? Thatís not what I was expecting! Turns out it was a buff. That mid tone? Turns out it was just a nail several inches deeper than the buff after all.

    Anyways, just wanted to encourage you all the sometimes those well-worked sites are worth revisiting, especially with some revamped settings.

    Nice finds brother!! I love the “hunted out spots” I recently started running my Nox wide open, no descrim and full sensitivity with the small coil. I get great depth but you have to go slow and listen to all the iron but it pays off once you get used to it. Keep it up kid!! Did your brother beat you? Again?? We shall see I guess

    Great advice to play with the settings on pounded sites, congrats on your silver Rosie find!
    On sites with heavy iron I run my Deus in '0' discrimination, the sensitivity at '95' and I lower the frequency to '12'.

    This makes for a very noisy hunt, but when you swing over something non-ferrous or pure iron it really jumps out at you.

    Nice hunting. Bryce messed with our settings a little bit last weekend. I still didn't find any coins, but I had fun. I got spoiled with a silver my first two hunts, and haven't found one since.
