agree with slow down

October 01, 2019 07:19AM
i have been pounding a closed lake park picnic area for years. with surgeries and time change looming, i only had a 45 minute window to hunt yesterday after work.. take advantage of it. going to be layed up soon and time change stinks for me. i have a smaller area i know every bush hog skinned root in, where i have been gleaning silver coins lately with the AT PRO. i have been changing coils and trying all the settings, including the dreaded bell tones in standard mode last nite. i have hearing issues and do not prefer the bell tones. first thing a silver Rosie. well that aint nothing.. except why have i missed it dozens of times? big factory coil, not my trusty 5x8, different settings and mode. it was measured to the length of half the Whites TRX pinpointer in depth. but sweep speed and wide open setting found it. a wheat and a few clads rusty and cruddy and to the house. again its operator.. no reason except a slower sweep. no reason the smaller coil with a proper setting and knowledge of machine would not find it. this place was covered up in silt from a flood in 94. but i just missed it due to hurry up hunting. getting old slows you down, and this place is secured for me only to hunt, and has been for years now. getting older and slower has let me smell a few more roses. i agree that coins dont just sink they get more put on top like dirt and pine needle debris in this case. in dollars and cents its cheaper for me to simply change setting and coils and slow down than buy the newest latest and greatest unit, although my appetite is wet for one, i have yet to master my versatile machine. i may not get to be old enough to do sogrinning smiley
