I can`t stress this enough, when your out Metal Detecting Keep your eyes peel you never know what you may see laying right on top of the ground. Be looking for thing that are out of place such as shapes, colores. How many times have you been to wal-mart and got out of your truck or car and found a penny laying on the payment.

Let try ( Tactics ) for Metal Detecting

Let say you swinging your coil along and  you get a signal that sound half way good well stop for a moment and think how much time do i have to hunt today  and if the answer is plenty then go ahead dig that signal. If you have very little time and you can remember where the signal is the by all meant come back another day. I personally have dug signal that didn`t not sound all good at first until i got down a little and the signal got better. You might try changes in to difference mode setting. Every detector is different so know you machine.

Cleaning silver

This is if you really won`t your coins and jewelry to shine ! Here what you do, take some baking soda  and water until there a paste and then put some on your coins and jewelry, it your decision if you won`t to rubb or not. I wouldn`t do this if it a key date coin, it would surely lower the value of the coin. I myself i am going to try it on some of my coins and i have seen from other that it does work.           This tip is from 219erman.

Tip for filling in your hole after you recover your target.

When you put your plug back in the hole and step on it with your foot is good , but also use your digger and make hole in the top of the plug so moisture can get in. If you don`t do this all the moisture will be around the outside of the plug, creating an island and the grass will look yelllow in color from being dead.

Metal Detecting tips for hunting yards.

First thing you need to hunt the walk that go up to the front porch, hunt on both sides . Something that is most of the time over look is hunting in the back yard one area for sure is where the clothes line was. Years ago people didn`t have washer and dryers so when they dry their clothes was outside on a clothes line. These are easy to reconize by the big iron pipe coming up out of the ground and at the top it look like a big iron T. My Mom had a clothes lines year ago and my grandparents did too. Most clothes lines were in the back yard. If you think a yard is hunted out,but you still want to hunt it. Check on the outer edges of the property. Check around the base of big trees, Was there a trail leading to a outhouse or other building. Also year ago folks would mail letter straight from the mailbox. Checkout the trail that lead from the house to the mailbox. What about a little trail that lead from the porch to the Garage. Check the shady area of the yard where kids played, Maybe a low spot.This little tip is for older hobbist do you remember the cast iron wash pot. My Grandmother had some. They would rinse the clothes out in them.check where these may have been if your hunting on family owned property.
