Can some of you more experienced folks help me with what kind of long handled sand scoop I should buy for beach hunting? Going to be for mostly hunting ocean beaches in/out of water. Thanks in advance! I really enjoy having you seasoned vets sharing what you’ve learned!

This is another one where I had to dive under and retrieve - no scooping here - very hard bottom and once again - with out a mask
you might be SOL . Bottom was clear and I could see far underwater so i just dropped my scoop in 6ft of water and dropped and fanned for my targets
and grabbed it later on the way out - could not do that if it was foamed - it was deep enough no one was gonna step on it and not being foamed did not have to worry
about anyone screwing with it or swimming into it.

The disadvantage to using a shovel ...... is targets move. Even in a scoop sand can push lighter targets out of the bucket. The deeper the target the wetter the sand .... the more targets you will chase. I cant imagine using a shovel (without holes) in the oat meal (sand at the surf edge). StarvR...... when you going to make a scoop sort of like the sunspot with a sharper tip? hard pan is getting tuff to dig neck deep with a shovel nose scoop. BUT.... i like my StarvR scoop especially the SIZE.
