First hunt with Tejon today

January 12, 2021 12:40AM
Hello everybody
Trying to keep things interesting on the Tesoro forum and get you folks inspired to fire up the old Tesoro's and get out there and find some cool stuff! I recently picked up a never used Black Tejon with the 11x8 coil on it. It’s one of the coolest machines I’ve ever seen! I know the Tejon is a relic machine but I’ve always wanted to coin hunt with one just to test my skills. Set the GB, set disc one to just where a 5c just starts to break up at times (Not as easy at it seems) I then set disc 2 to just knock out zincolns. I was detecting a fairly junky older park loaded with pull tabs, crown caps and coins. I had one hour and my goal was $1.00 and just one nickel. Sounds simple, right? I found finding a nickel to be the hardest of the 2 goals. I at first dig some can slaw then a few tabs. I pushed on going very slow and listening to every target. It took some time but I eventually heard what I called “forced” nickel sound. I was pretty happy when a nickel popped out! After my hour with the Tejon I dug 98c, 2 wheats and 2 nickels. Not a great day but it was for me! Sometimes it not what you find as much as it’s how to test your skills detecting. I love this hobby and it keeps me going even through the toughest of times and I hope that it does for all of you too!

I'm always inspired to "fire-up" a Tesoro.
