How feasible would it be to wind coils around the sole of your shoes.  I would drill through in front of the heel and wind around the front part.  That way you could be locating without advertising what you are doing.  You might look enebriated though.  Depends on how critical it is to keep the coil in a flat plane as to whether it would work well, I guess.

How does this detector compare to a bounty hunter detector?

You might try this circuit, May be a small pin-pointer or pocket pal. An old plastic flashlight housing might work as well.
Housing can be made with anything ya got handy!
