Lets Talk About Treasure Hunting Tips
« on: August 02, 2010, 05:32:07 PM »

What’s your tips for searching for small or large, land or sea, treasures?  What detector/s or methods you use, and their results?
Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't but he wouldn't be one
Who'd say so until he had tried.

Thats a tough one Larry! I have never found any treasure to speak of, although, I metal detected in a field that used to have a house on it back in the early 1900s. I found an old beat up Dollar watch and a large number of old bullets. Other then that, I haven't found any treasure to speak of

I often go detecting for nuggets and after hours of digging .22 shell caseings and bits of lead bullets I turn off the discrimating function and go for treasure or as my wife and daughters call it JUNK but I think treasure is in the eyes of the beholder. Ive found civil war era bullets rusty old bayonette old brass paddle lock old tin beer cans, miners picks crow bars and tons of stuff that I ponder what it is then daydream about who might of used these unknown treasures. Then I bring them home call my wife and daughters and grandaughters over to show them. They listen to me explain what they might be, all the while they smile and listen to my stories. That is the biggest treasure of all.
