Hi Everyone......I'm about to purchase a Tesoro Tejon and have read that it doesn't do well in bad soil or soil with heavy mineralization. I live in Northwest Arkanasas. How would I know if the soil is good soil or falls into the "bad soil" category here? Any AR hunters out there that could tell me if the conditions here would be adverse for the Tejon? If so, I've heard the Vaquero might fare better.....or maybe the Fisher 1270 would be a better option? Please help! ???

So who told you that?
Sounds like something my local shop would say to get me to buy a 1500$ Detector.
I would ask on the Tesoro forum here so you can get a unbiased opinion.

I would look in the Fisher gold bug pro or Teknetics G2. Both made specifically to hunt in highly mineralized soils. hey are quiet running machines and very easy to use.
