Metal detecting tips & tricks

Treasure hunting is a whole lot of fun for all age groups, and like anything, you'll get better at it the more you do it. However, there are a few tips and tricks that can start you off in the right direction and help you become a successful prospector right away. Here's some helpful tips to get you started:

Get help on your first hunt

The best way to hone a new skill is by learning from someone else. So if you can, it's a great idea to take someone who knows what they're doing along with you on your first trip. If you don't know anyone, read the instruction manual carefully and watch some instructional videos instead. Then start off in an area that's familiar to you, as this can help you to get a feel for your new detector.

Bury your own treasures

Place different items like coins, bottle caps and other metal objects around your own yard. Bury some at different depths and then practice finding them. Learn to differentiate between the different signals, as this will help you to identify treasures out in the field.

Don't ignore uncertain signals

Digging signals that aren't necessarily a sure thing can pay dividends. Sometimes those uncertain signals can lead you to the best finds, so if you have the time, it's always worth investigating.
