Getting out during the winter

Great tips everyone, but I for one plan on doing some detecting this winter. The ground will be frozen and there will be snow but with my new shovels I got I will really be able to penetrate the frozen ground. I will probably be hunting farm fields this year, because when NEL comes out with a Storm 13x14 for the simplex (my main detector) I will need a place to use it. That way I will still get good depth through the snow. I am too addicted to the sport I could never stop for a whole season!

Coinboy,

That's great that you have some probable locations to keep you occupied as winters' grip firms up in the next couple months. Over the years I've been able to find similar areas that to the casual observer would appear frozen, but aren't. I've also spent time trying to gain the upper hand on frozen ground with various implements. Lots of effort, so hopefully the target is worthwhile. And there are some targets that due to location and lack of progress vs the frozen ground I have to make note and come back when the ground isn't frozen.

The key for me is to continue to make exploratory trips and test the ground. I keep an old screwdriver in the car just for this. Spending time driving through urban and rural areas and looking through books and old magazines can generate ideas on where to explore with your detector.

Enjoy the Simplex and the coming winter.
