  1. GoPro in the field

    I'm fairly new to action cameras like the GoPro series. I did finally buy the GoPro Hero 8 Black. I'm wondering how folks are using theirs on hunts. Chest mount? Tripod? Another person along to just shoot video/pics? Are you recording the entire time, then just editing later?
  2. Found something, not sure what though

    This came out of an old canal entrance area from the local river. There's a stone railroad bridge, and this was between 2 of the large stones around the base. Pretty sure it's lead. It's solid, and looks like it's been there for a while. Any thoughts as to what it is, or was used for? I...
  3. Equinox 800 - Not feeling it so far

    Am I the only one that HATES thing thing? Yes, it's still a new unit to me. And I'm sure it's all user error. But nothing about this unit is "jiving" with me. I'm finding at every hunt I'm wishing I brought my Makro instead. I think I'm going to just do the factory reset, and run it "out of...
  4. Treasure or trash?

    Not sure on this one. Came up this morning in an older park, in the next town over. Average bracelet size. Doesn't stick to a magnet, and has some weight to it. But there's nothing on the inside at all. Not sure how much cleaner it'll get. I'm leaning towards trash, but wouldn't be the...
  5. Finally hit the 1800s

    Pretty bad shape, but it's the oldest I've found so far. I could barely make out the date of 1886 on it. Detecting an old housing spot in my town that was long ago demolished. Found it next to what I think is either a root cellar or cistern (still not sure what they are - Stone lined holes...
  6. Unexpected Find Today (4-17-19)

    Checked a local area today, quite a bit of trash. Former rail line, with the usual junk as expected. Once I walked that area, I decided to hike up the deer path to the top of the hill the line ran between. Nice view from the top. That's the Delaware River and PA across it. Not a lot of...
  7. Anyone have an idea of what this is?

    The back side is gone, there isn't anything to help identify it as a button, or whatever. This turned up in NW NJ by the Delaware River a bit north of Easton, PA.
  8. First trip out. New Tracker IV

    So I finally go out a bit today. First time out, ever. Picked up the Tracker IV last week, but it's been too cold till the past few days. While I didn't find much, I did hit a few items. A 38 special case, 357mag case, the remains of a 12 gauge shell, and what looked like a hand forged nail...
  9. Anyone in the NW NJ - Warren County area?

    Just back from my first time out. Didn't really find anything, except on the first throw. Came back with a rock stuck to my magnet. I know there's iron in my area, so I'm guessing that's what it is. And one spot kept filling the magnet with what looked like black sand or silt. I'd swear I...
  10. Hey everyone

    Just checking in, saying hi from NW NJ. Very new to all this, reading as much as I can. Haven't even decided what brand/model I'm going to end up going with. My only experience so far has been an older Whites underwater model I used to mess around with at work when I was still working at...
