There's a detectorist in my area who's favorite game is to spot you hunting, chat you up, telling you he's already hunted the spot to death. He's hoping you'll give up and leave. If you do, he and his hunting buddy will pound the place.

Here in Utah I even had it happening by the early-to-mid '90s. One thing I did on occasion, knowing the individuals or encountering them showing up at a site I was already searching, was to:

1.. Not share much info I might have about a site, site history from my research, or how long I have been working it.

2.. Possibly irritate some a little by stopping the search pattern I was using and moving over to follow where they just hunted, at a safe, reasonable distance, and then utter something exciting=sounding every time I recovered a good target from where they just hunted. Quite often they would question their abilities or blame the issue on their detector and, surprisingly, many seemed to leave 'my' spot sooner than they intended. Then it was back to what I was doing when they arrived.
