Lately I’ve been running my Fisher F2 with no Discrimination, and listening to the higher tones mixed in with the low tones. That type of hunting is more noisy, but by listening to the variations in tones, I’ve been able to pluck some goodies out of the trash.
On my first hunt of the new year, January 1st, 2014, I detected at a park that I have hunted many times before. I was detecting in an open field area when I got a dime signal. The ID jumped from Quarter to Dime, but the high pitch was enough to peak my interest, so I dug the target.
It was a shallow target, and about 2 inches down, I first saw the side ‘diamonds’ in the plug. I immediately got an adrenaline rush, until I realized that it was just costume jewelry. Oh well, the adrenaline rush was worth it and I almost had a heart attack for a second! lol
When I first pulled the ring out of the hole, the stone was missing. Luckily, I was able to find the stone in the hole as well, and eventually glued it back in it’s place for display purposes.
In 2013, I actually found my first ring at that park. Later in the year, I found a Triton Steel Wedding Band there also. Then, just before years end, I found a .925 Silver Bracelet at that park. So that makes 3 rings, and a .925 Bracelet from the same park.
So far, that park has produced some jewelry, and hopefully it will reveal a nice gold ring soon! Time will tell, but for now, it’s been a fun place to detect and I look forward to a promising 2014!
I have some REALLY cool surprises coming up this season, and can not wait to get rockin! 2014 looks to be an exciting year, and soon I’ll have some exciting news to share with you!
Good luck out there everyone, and remember, ALWAYS FILL YOUR HOLES back in when digging a plug.
I saw a guy digging at this park where I hunt, and he was using a three prong garden rake! “Cringe”
