Default Targeting silver

The sports field I've been hunting is not being worked on presently , so it's locked up for awhile .I will be let back in once they resume . They did do a partial scrape on the grass outside the field so I hit that for three hours today

Today I used the Nox600 with the stock coil .My coin count was $1.75 .
I also got two wheats a 40D and a 44S . The highlight of the hunt was a 44S Merc which is my first silver with the Nox .and my first Merc since over a year ago .

On my next trip there (possibly tomorrow ) I'm going to hit the same dirt I hit today with my trusty M6 with the 6x8 Detech coil .That detector has always done right by me and I'm curious to see if it will grab some "leftovers" there .


I left at noon as the heat was getting a bit unpleasant .
Like Harry Callahan says " a man has got to know his limitations " .


Happy Hunting All !
