Well, as we got to looking at her rig and getting it GB'd and all that, we got to talking about things...She told me her Husband just died a few months ago, left her with a massive fortune and no other heirs, and She needed to find something to do to fill in her lonely days...so she got a metal detector which she always wanted since she was a little girl growing up on a Kansas farm...

So yeah, I consoled her, offered her a non filtered smoke which she gladly accepted and totally enjoyed....then, as we relaxed in our company, I recited some poetry, a few lines from "The Highwayman" by Alfred Noyes, which showed her I was not a completely ignorant drunkin tosspot booboo and had a modicum of class...that set her at ease..chicks dig poetry...We dropped her Sens 3 clicks on the Pro and went Pro Zero mode..

We talked about Music and travel and how Life is one big adventure best experienced out of doors and how big this Planet is etc, how most people suck etc..We talked about the Perseid meteor shower and how it would be cool to view it from Greenland...drinking Coors Light Beer and smoking at night and then having unprotected sects beneath the shooting stars, running around buck wild nakid on top of an ancient glacier?

Did I mention she was a Victorias Secret Model? Also featured on the cover of SI's Swimsuit body paint edition a few years back? So......Even though I dont like hunting buddies, I have made an exception here...We have hunted the Globe as 'Hunting Buddies' for the past few years...flying into Fiji on Her G5 to work the sand, Globe Hopping to the Seychelles in season, theres no way we can ever spend off her inheritance, but we are sure trying! She likes my company on account of I have a very big 'personality' lets just say...

So yeah...dont paint yourself into a corner regarding dismissing the need for a Hunting Buddy...Not all hunting buddies are the same...Did I mention Mine has also been medically diagnosed as a "stage 10 Nymphomaniac with a One Lover obsession"? Yeah, theres some drawbacks, but WTH? She has a helicopter, calls me all the time, lands the damn thing right out here in the parking lot at my Olde Folks Sleepy Tyme neighborhood, and I gotta grab my gear and go!......My Wife of 50yrs dont give a Tinkers Cuss!...WTH is that noise? I just say thats my dmaned old Metal Detecting Buddy wanting to pick me up and go finds some pennies! She says, "tell that damned guy not to make so much noise!" I'm like Yeah, poor old bastard...well, thats a 1996 Mercury Marquis station wagon for you......

You think I'm, bullshiddinya? Well, YOU Started it!
You must have been hunting in Chester County!

Well, thats the secret for getting some attention here...keep the primary post a bit vague, stick with the basic concerns of Mankind, and let the Forum Roll!

Its like asking, "Whats the best digger or headphones, detecting car, waders, hat, back brace, hemmerhoid ointment or divorce attorney?" The Friggin' place will absolutely blow up!

Or it is because it is a relevant subject for many? Either positive or negative.

Somehow.... hemrhoid treatment and divorce attorney just seem to go together don't they?

My hunting buddy passed away a few years ago and I sure do miss being able to spend time with him. We hunted together for the better part of 30 years.
We never had any issues, we just both loved to detect. If I got skunked and he made a good find I was always happy for him and shared in his excitement and he would do the same for me. Even today when I find something good I will look up and say "Thanks buddy" and I feel him with me.
No, you don't need a detecting buddy but if you find the right one it will enrich your life more than any bucket list find.

RIP Dewey

I use to have a fishing and hunting buddy like that, and then something changed. We use to throw our catches in a pile and clean until we were done, then he started only cleaning "his fish". He stopped helping with the boat, just wanted to show up and fish. The same way when we hunted squirrels and rabbits. Eventually, we stopped getting together. It has been almost 2 years since we have spoken. Sad.

I do not need or want a hunting buddy or do I want to join a club!
I'm like you, and yet, here we are that the Friendly Metal Detecting Forum Club! LOL

I see my online family as my "club members" I never have to worry about them horking my areas, and if they were to show up in town, I'd be more than happy to take them to a productive area for a day. Because I know they're leaving. LOL

Why post anything at all in a “find a hunting buddy” thread if you don’t want to find one? Just keep it to yourself like the rest of the people that prefer to hunt alone.
