The Best Way to Pinpoint a Target

May 3rd, 2011

What is the best way to sweep your metal detector to pinpoint a target?

When the detector detects a buried target, continue sweeping the search coil over the target in a narrowing side-to-side motion. Make a visual note of the exact spot on the ground where the detector beeps.

Stop the search coil directly over this spot on the ground. Then move the search coil straight forward away from you and straight back toward you a couple of times. Make a visual note of the exact spot on the ground where the detector beeps.

Repeat Steps 1-2 at a right angle to the original search line, making an “X” pattern. The target should be directly below the “X” at the point of the loudest response.

Where Can I Hunt?

May 2nd, 2011

We have had a lot of customers ask us … Where can I hunt?

 Spending some time doing a bit of research can turn up places that may have never been hunted.  However even if the area has been hunted before does not mean there are not still good items to be found.  Beaches are always good areas to hunt, especially after seasonal changes, such as storms. 

Here are a few things to remember when hunting:

  • Always ask for permission before using someone’s land.
  • Follow all county and state codes/regulations.   Remember to respect private property.
  • Never destroy historical or archaeological treasures. If you are not sure about an object you have found, contact a museum or historical society in your area.
  • Be courteous to land owners.  Leave the land and vegetation as it was.  Fill in any holes you dig.  Just practice common sense and please keep the surroundings clean!
