"I think I'm done with this place ...." moody smiley

Most all of us can mutter something like that now-and-then, especially when we've made a couple of trips to a site we have hunted a lot, and come up short on a 'keeper' or two. Especially when the weed growth makes it a little more of a struggle, and the sun is climbing in the morning sky and we know it's going to get hot, ... soon.

In my case I know my hunt-time is usually limited and I'm dealing with some other issues that keep me from wandering too far from where I park. But as I search an area of the old townsite I am hearing enough good-sounding targets that are smaller-size and non-ferrous, and "coin-like" or "token-like" signals ... but they aren't. I get my hopes up, but end up recovering a small zinc bottle cap, rivet or similar higher-conductive, good-indications object.

Knowing that much of the particular area has been hunted before, from my experience, the past 8 years by me and OregonGregg, and periodically by Remfire, Kickindirt, Zincoln, Goondock and others who hang out here on the Forums, it still amazes me of how many dig-worthy targets just haven't been dug! Not just un-dug by others, but even un-dug by myself from previous hunts in this area.

It serves as a constant reminder that we might get a lot of good targets from a frequently-hunted site .... but we never get it all. You have to put the coil over the targets in order to hear them, and if we zig instead of zag, we can easily miss a 'keeper.' And then there are times when we get down in the dumps and claim there isn't much left and we're wasting our time ... things happen. Sometimes, the proof that good targets are still around can be right there before our very eyes!eye popping smiley

Ever have one of those days? You know, when you can surprise yourself and prove yourself wrong? It happens.
