here is the spot for all WTHO Participants to report in on their experiences and results from our now-concluded Welcome-to-Hunt Outing. I just got home a short while ago and I'm quite exhausted, so I'll add my Outing Results and Experiences later. For those who made this Outing, please report your comments and photos under this thread.

If you would, perhaps i8nclude comments about the make and models used to make the different finds, or things you might have learned about your detector and coil selection for Relic Hunting the very dense iron contaminated debris.

'Thank You;' to all who devoted their time, effort and travels to help make this group get-together yet another pleasant experience.

Monte

Late in the morning, I was packed and on the road, a little later than hope for, but, on the road. Before long, Salt Flats and WWII Air Bases were whisking by the windows and I could see the Nevada state line ahead. Sage brush, desert mountain ranges with long valleys between. Beautiful horizons, even in the middle of the day.

Monte asked for a little rundown on detectors and coil choices. I'd brought along an EQ800 (800) with the EQ06 coil, a Nokta CoRe (Ol' Yeller) with 5" OOR coil and a Deus with the 9" x35 coil. (Deuce)

I do need to give a big thanks to OregonGregg. Despite the newer high-tech 800 and Deuce I was bringing along, Gregg wanted to make sure I brought Ol' Yeller and give it an opportunity to do its' thing. There's been a lot of chit chat about all the latest technology outshining 'once outstanding' detectors to the point they should be left home or at best, left in the truck in case of emergency. Gregg committed to show me some of his finer insider tips to using the CoRe. He didn't disappoint. If you get an opportunity to hunt with Gregg, put on your learning cap and pay attention. winking smiley

Day 1 - Half Day. I originally thought this was a cat button, but once home I brushed off the face and it looks more like a stylized dog. You decide. (detector - 800) And the 1904 IHC pierced by a square nail. (detector - Deuce) Always nice to find some sort of a keeper on day 1 to take the pressure off.

Day 2 - Detector Camp with Gregg and an 1854 Seated Dime. (detector - Ol' Yeller)

Day 3 - Lots and Lots and Lots and Lots of practice

Day 4 - Half Day. 1883 Seated Dime (detector - Deuce)

It was nice to say hello to everybody. So many nice people made long drives to be there. A big thanks for Monte for organizing invitations and encouraging participation and especially increasing my detector IQ by participating in the WTHO's these last four or so years.

Remember, whatever detector / coil combination you choose, you are making trade offs. Decide what's in your favor for wherever you are hunting.

800 - Deus - CoRe - XLT


It's YOU that makes the difference.
