My New VX3 Finds the 2nd Time Out

Well after a mild winter so far in NY and warm weather showing up, I got out for a real hunt the second time. Not long after starting my hunt I got a nice mid tone (I use Tone ID most times) read 44 and 5” down.

White's hits a home run with the VX3!
I received my new VX3 today and decided to take it out in my backyard for a quick spin. I know there was a house from the late 17-early 1800s, but had never been able to find its exact location. Although I plan on covering every square inch of the ground, I wasn't looking to put in a lot of time with the new VX3 today....
