Learning about 'Iron' can be very helpful.

Considering the more common problem targets, Iron Nails. Also learning how to deal with multiple Nails or other ferrous debris we are likely to encounter.

Naturally, a lot will depend on where we hunt, the particular location and former activity, and also on what makes and models detectors we choose to use. The coil choice, the operating frequency and the various settings we have at-hand, and sweep speed used.

The more learned a hobbyists gets they tend to become more of an avid detectorist and start to concentrate on more Iron Nail infested sites, actually listening FOR Iron Nails and similar debris. Then slowly and patiently working around the discarded junk while hoping to hear a good, positive response from a partially-masked keeper. After a while, hunting in Iron can often be 'fun' .... if you let it be.

Heck, my Tesoro Outlaw would ace those tests especially with my small coil.
