New to the hobby need a buddy


Feb 26, 2011
Hey everyone I live in the south Denver area and I have been hunting on and off for about 3 months , I have a Bounty Hunter Quick Draw 2 , I know it's not a big boy machine but I still find things with it .

Anyone want to go hunt some parks ? Or mountains , I hope someone else knows where the good finds are , the oldest thing I have found is a 1925 s Wheatie , I found a junk ring the other day it was my first ring .

If anyone wants to hunt you can Email me directly or just reply to my post .

Take care, see ya'll later !

I'm even newer to detecting than you are! I don't have a detector yet... but will be picking one up soon. I live in Castle Rock, so I would guess that we aren't too far apart. If you'd be open, I'd like to come along with you sometime soon and watch/help you on a hunt...

Reply back here or drop me a PM...

Xdigger, I'm in the southwest denver area. Looking for places to go and it is always nice to go with someone. You want to hit up a park some Sunday let me know as that is about my only free day.

Finding places to go is a lot more difficult than finding someone to go with. That said this hobby is also about the people you meet and the friendships you develop. I live in South Colorado Springs and would be happy to meet up with others, and yes I would be willing to pick someone up.

Find a 1925 wheatie is not too bad. It is getting more difficult to find the older coins in most parks. As to the ring that is also a plus as rings can be challenging as a lot of new detectorists tend to turn their discrimination too high. So good going!

I don't get up to Denver too often, usually I head South or West. But if you tempt me with a good location I would be more than willing to drive up there!!! For anyone interested I do have a couple of spare detectors I would be willing to lend to someone wanting to learn but doesn't have a good detector.

I'm also new to the hobby. Still researching for my first detector. I'm 56 yrs, live in Falcon, near Peyton, about 10 miles east of Colorado Springs. Interested in coin, relics, and, of course, gold. Thanks, Mark
