Ok I may have slipped off to do a little detecting for a couple of hours. I decided to take a different approach today. Rather than hunting a spot that I haven't been to, I decided to swing by an older 2 story brick home that I scored 3 Silver dimes at a couple years back. I have hunted this yard with both My CTX, and Equinox 800.
I decided to set the Deus2 up in Deep HC with the notches set to only accept Nickels, Wheats, and up. I didn't want to bother with the Indian range and the trash that goes with them due to My time restraint.
I started in the main front yard. About 5 minutes in I had pulled 3 copper Lincolns. I was trying to learn the way it hit on high conductors, and digging scratchy ones as long as I could get them to come in back and forth, faint ones as well. I had the target volume at 4; Reactivity 1.5; Sensitivity 98.
I started hitting deep Wheats. 6-10". This really surprised Me. I just kept going. By the time I made it to the outer curb strip I had already found 8 Wheats.😳
By the time I made It to the second pass I got a faint but solid 91-92. Out pops a Merc!! By this time I'm , well , you knowπŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™‚οΈ
So anyway by the time I finished up the front, including curb strips, I ended up with 11 Wheats and 2 Mercs. I don't know what to say. I'm sure I had My other 2 machines dialed in. I just don't know, but very happy with this hunt!!! Silver#15fty!

Well done and some impressive results that your other machines missed.
So is the next choice of sites, another old or an unknown?
Thinking of checking out some more old productive sites that I've already been to.
As time allows.
