Metal Detecting Places

I got an early Christmas present from my wife. It's a Garrett Ace 300 metal detector and a pinpointer. I talked about getting one to find something that was dropped in the yard years ago. When I started scanning around the yard my 7yo was very intrigued by what I was doing. After I showed her a few times I finally let my daughter use our pinpointer to go through the dirt I dug up to find the treasures. Now That's all she talks about. She wants to do this all of the time even after dark. I was thinking about just her and I venturing out somewhere to do a little treasure hunting. Just wanted to share..

I know this is an old post but how is it going?

I've been into and out of the hobby over several years. I currently own 3 detectors that I use occasionally. My problem is having someone to go with. You seem to have a built in answer to that issue. That's great! I hope you are both enjoying the hobby.

Just bought a pointer to try and find a ring my wife lost along a fence line behind the house.
Pointer was $40, the ring was $20.
If I find it.................priceless.

You are right about that! I didn't get into this hobby to make a profit. I just like finding lost stuff.

I remember getting a detector when I was about 8 or 9. Took it out in the back yard the next day and started digging for that treasure.



Man was my dad mad when he got home and saw 20 fresh holes dug in the back yard.

Well I ran around the fence line with the wand (and it really works good) until my back couldn't take anymore.
Found a couple of small pieces of metal, but no ring.
Problem is darn thing alarms about 8-10 inches from the metal fence that runs around the area.

Unfortunately that is what they are supposed to do, detect metal. Sounds like it is doing it's job.

I've had one in the closet now for 10+ years. I would love to go hunting, just don't know where it's allowed now. I still watch youtube videos.

Take it out, dust it off, get some batteries and get back in it. Check the forums for others in your area that might give you some ideas on the laws, or better yet, let you tag along. A good place to start is in your own backyard and go from there.
