Default Hunting Civil War Relics in a creek question

I have got a good permission to hunt along a creek near Pickets Mill battle field (not in the park) area. The creek is good size about 30 feet across, high banks about 15-20 feet and sandy, gravel and some bedrock bottom areas.

I will be using my nox 800 and have stock, 6" and 15" coils. Any strategy you could suggest about hunting this creek. I am pretty much limited to the creek area.

thanks for any help.

Hunt slow...is a permit required down there to hunt rivers and creeks? It's required here in Virginia. Good luck!

You may be ok on private property. With the temps in the 90's this week, creek hunting sounds like the ticket to beat the heat! Don't forget to post up those finds. Good luck!

If you’ve got permission by gosh hunt . You start worrying about everything and you’ll end up only detecting in your backyard. Good luck.
