Wives and Female Friends.

June 08, 2020 06:49AM avatar
Wives, I've had two, and the first had no interest, then second gave it a try early-on in our marriage, but it just wasn't for her. However, she did a very good job of 'eye-baling' stuff when we walked around old sites.

Female Friends who detected, and I don't mean "girl friends" as such, just females I enjoyed detecting with, used to be more numerous. There also used to be a lot more females who were active in the hobby when metal detecting was in the hey-day from the later '70s to the early '90s. Back then I had a lot of friends, male and female, who enjoyed getting out hunting and of my 'Top Ten Hunting Buddies' the top 7 or 8 were females. Some single and some married, and in those latter cases some of them had husbands who also detected and some who didn't.

But times have changed and we see fewer people getting into the hobby these days and the percentage of females is also smaller in proportion to the number of males. Times have also changed because several of my favorite hunting buddies have passed away, or age and other factors have caused them to step away from this great sport. Today, there are only three females I know who I would pleasantly still enjoy getting out hunting with .... even if I knew they might possibly out-hunt me. It's their personalities and desire to keep trying and learning that impress me, and the fact that they are not so blasted 'competitive' like quite a few guys are.

Oh, and as a little added comment, all three had their start in 1981, 1986 or sometime in the latter '90s. All three prefer hunting old-use locations more than urban Coin Hunting. All have made some very nice finds, and all of them still use their original or another earlier production model from that manufacturer. And, all three of them use a White's and/or Tesoro detector with 7", 6½" or 5" Concentric coils the bulk of the time. None have made a switch to the modern digitally-designed detectors .... yet. .... because what they own and use, and how they have learned to use them, makes a difference and they are successful.
