yep agree there.. just did it too!

I took my AT Pro and went Pro zero, iron audio on iron at 28. Gb showed minerals at 84. I put the large factory coil on. i went to a concrete and plaster structure by the closed down private lake i have access to. Its rebar and buried pipes and wires . i have hunted around it zillion times. i have exclusive access here 20 yrs. a flood buried things really deep in spots of settled mud in 94. generally cant get too close to the structure but i started using slight wiggles like a Tesoro unit without pinpoint and listened to my audio good and looked at the numbers. i was seeing and hearing the bad stuff but got the short high blip and saw the magic 85 number. the clevis area of the big coil gives the best and most accurate signal. i wiggled over it and got the repeater signal and number. a deep mercury dime below the flood debris.aint much but its silver. was not the 42/1 over strike but was a 42. close. gave the heart a thump. kind of feel like a Archeo guy reading the dirt layers. lots of patience. i will soon loose this place due to decline of owner due to age. it went from a public place years ago to a private kiddie church camp in summer. when she passes its gone for good. this year they did not lower the lake to clean swimming area and the better places can never be lowered anyway due to structure of lake and dam. and a muck bottom. only land hunt this year. so targets are fewer and lower values having dug a lot of goodies over years. i can still eak out an occasional silver or Indian, buff or wheat. a few tiny charms etc. all older stuff in the old dirt pre flood. changing up machines and settings and remember to settle down and hunt according to WHAT THAT MACHINE CAN DO is an often forgot secret to success. i was used to faster hunting with a quick recovery unit. now i am older, wiser, again older...lol... and more patient. and not a company cheer leader as i once was becoming. Yea i root for MADE IN USA. still, and prefer them even though the parts are made overseas. basically at this point in life cant run out and buy a new machine, and i fear hunting will be less with wifes illness and mine. eye surgery for me next week and heart cath for her failing health November. my job also took me out of historic Macon and put me in other two counties we work with less public land for lunch hunts. but i do what i can. my guru i call him would wax me with a simple Sabre and me with a higher end machine. showed me learning the machine is the key, or like Monte understanding how the machine works and its capabilities overall. yea he could not go as deep with the sabre but still all the stuff i missed and he found... operator is the key for me. i now think or believe i am a sufficient operator of my machines, and have realized that they can be changed up some to re open an area.

May the last hole i dig be my own, and will a fellow detectorist cover me up. And you can have the pulltab!
