We each have a White’s XLT Spectrum-E series metal detector. Dennis also has a Garrett Sea Hunter Mark II and a CKG 6 X 9 Sand Scoop. Our first detector 36 years ago was a White’s 6000/Di series.
It is rare that we get to detect the beach. Since we are so far inland, old homesites are one of our favorite places to hunt. There is a lot of history wherever you live, and research is an important part of a successful outing. It is great fun to dig an old item and research to learn of it’s history. Each relic tells a story and ‘digging’ into the past to find answers is often as much fun as the find itself.
Of course we love to find jewelry! Lake beaches are a good source of jewelry as well as local parks.
Wherever we hunt we always obtain permission and leave no trace of our activity.
