New Record Hunt

Got permission to hunt an old school yard that has been private property a number of years now. The owner said "poke around all ya want but a couple other guys been through it and said they didn't find much".

Said thanks thinking to myself they probably didn't have an E-TRAC or my patience. Was only there between 2- 2 1/2 hours and pulled 7 silver dimes, silver quarter, silver 4-H pin, buffalo nickel, and 24 wheats!! All coins were fairly deep in the 6-9" range E-TRAC hit hard every time but one, which was a strong nickel but the conductivity number jumped quite a bit.

Found the buffalo at 6" then rescanned and got a strong 12-46. About 2 inches deeper and just to the side came the '38 quarter. I was running deep off but think next time on this spot I should try deep on.

I know there is more waiting to be found and am welcome back, owner stopped by after I had made 15 or so plugs and couldn't find one of them!! Be sure and respect the owner and they will treat you right.

Loving my E-TRAC. Two months now and it is an amazing machine!!!
