"I am too addicted to the sport I could never stop for a whole season!"

November 19, 2020 05:15AM avatar
And that, 'Coinboy', is exactly how I have felt from my start in this wonderful outdoor sport.thumbs up It was the first week in March when I started, many years ago, and when winter arrived, at that time, I was fortunate to be living the the outskirts of Portland, Oregon. That meant we had a lot of rain, some colder days mixed in, but over there I was able to get out hunting every month of the year. In '68, three years later, I was 'back home' in Ogden Utah and that meant I would have colder wintry weather and a lot of white on the ground to deal with. I used that season to get a lot of research done at a few libraries, but I also worked in as much time as I could with a detector.

They have since ruined one city park are, but back then it had a couple of pretty good sledding hills. It was also in the days when most younger folks were involved with school and not out sluffing or the number of drop-outs we see today. So I usually had any weekday available to hunt because most use was on the weekends or late afternoons. The ground was frozen in most spots, but I could always find some place to get out at least now and then. I sure wish we would have had some of the detectors available like we enjoy today. It would have made it much better to winter hunt.

The Simplex + is a really great detector to be using, especially if you're in a wet environment. I wish you all the best of success in the next few months to come.
