Great Entry Level Machine

Review by Greg on December 10, 2017

My first detector Quick Draw II, I bought second hand over 20 years ago. Not much in depth, maybe 6 inches but great signals in recognizing clad coins. I have used this machine while stationed in Japan, while in the Navy. The 500 yen pieces were easy targets, back then 500 yen was about equivalent to $4, eventually saved enough money to buy an Excalibur 1000, which was then $1000 at Kellyco! I still have and use both machines. My Minelab is over 17 years old and is going into retirement mode like myself but the Quick Draw II is still on the top of its game. I have found clad, silver and gold with this machine and I am happy that I have purchased it long ago for only $60. Thank you, Bounty Hunter!

First of all, Kellyco is a great company to deal with and they should not sell detectors like Bounty Hunters! First Texas is about as bad as it gets to deal with when you have a problem with your detector. I am a White's user and always will be, you can't beat the customer service and professionalism of White's, but I was tempted with the price and features of this BH. This thing is unstable and beeps at dirt! Tried to resolve the issue with BH and they told me this detector has issues with disc mode and to run it in notch. I won't sell this thing used because it really isn't even worth the shipping cost to someone. Maybe I can salvage the parts and make a stand or something.

This is a good entry level detector. I have a much older one than this Quick Draw II. The one I have and still use on occasion, came out before this one, it had no pin pointing, no depth finder, but had three tones, I learned on that detector, bought it some time in the 1980's. It is a turn on and go detector, at the time I was just hunting coins, then I just went on weekends and after work. I knew my area as I am a 3rd generation to it. I never found Indian heads pennies or v nickels but found a lot of buffalo, wheaties, merc silver quarters, a few half dollars, one standing lib. and some of the new dollar coins. I learned to find my depth by lifting the coil off the ground and swinging it pin pointed by crossing the coil. I am going to buy another one for my wife. It will be easy for her to use. I have three other detectors including two White's and an older Garrett. I detect everyday as I am retired and I live in a gold area. My White's both have that capability. I have a lot of good memories of my Bounty Hunter Quick Draw. It has been a lot of fun. For that reason I give it a good review, for the money you can't go wrong.

Fools Gold

Review by Mike S on December 18, 2012

I just bought me and my dad a Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II about a week ago. We took them out to try to tune them and we ended up picking up what appeared to be coins on the display, but 9 times outta 10 we would dig up pull tabs or aluminum. Mind you we tuned them with coins, a gold ring and a silver quarter before we left the house and notched out iron, aluminum and pull tabs. But for some reason I even scanned across an aluminum can that was buried and it was showing continuously each time I scanned over it. It was a quarter so I tried notching it out and did nothing, auto notch did nothing, nor discriminate. It was still saying the aluminum can was a quarter. Plus another downfall is if you wanted to try finding gold you would have to dig up every piece of trash because gold shows up under the foil / iron, pull tabs, caps or zinc. So have fun trying to find gold near buried trash. As for Kellyco's accessories there's no way they're worth that much. What I had included in the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II that said it was a $95.20 value free, but the most I could see was maybe a $25.00 value. Headphones are about as cheap as they get. Well that about narrows it down, hopefully this review is helpful. I'm gonna be getting a hold of Kellyco to see about a refund, I already have a cheap $75.00 metal detector that can find trash, why spend over $200.00 on one.

I bought this detector 5 years ago and used it mainly on summer beach vacations once a year. Recently, I have been taking it out locally in parks and school yards and have had much success. While I still haven't found any gold jewelry, I find lots of clad coins every time I go out.
This spring I had my best find yet - an 1862 Civil War token! I find this machine easy to use and with more practice you get familiar with the tones. I usually have a pretty good idea of what target I'm on by the tone alone. The battery life is very good too. I recommend this detector to anyone new to the hobby for the price and performance. Do yourself a favor though, with the money you save on the detector get yourself a Garret Pro-Pointer pin-pointer it will save you tons of time digging.

Review by Garrett on March 17, 2010

It's real fun but when I dig up a target I can't find anything, and it says it can pinpoint but it can't. So, all in all, I give it 3 stars.

I traded my drywall skills for my metal detector. I found wheat and Indian head pennies. I have found a 24k gold coin still not identified. Yesterday I found a 1930’s brass lone ranger badge. I have found several matchbox cars. The only drawback I have is aluminum foil. I love this detector.

About the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II: Starting out, the weight is minimal, somewhere around 3lb, very light if your swing it for few hours or all day. My wife and I both like it for that same reason. Now the Quick Draw goes together real easy from putting the (2) 9 volt alkaline batteries in and how the coil shaft goes together. There are 8" coils and a 4" Gold Bug coil, the 4" coil is great in high trashy areas and when in the mountains looking for gold nuggets in the streams. 8" coils are good for relic and deep cache hunting large open areas.

Looking at the face plate is what my wife likes most. It has the nine dictate target ID and the three different tone solutions. They are high, medium and low. A person hears a tone and then looks at the target read out to see what could be there. Then looks at the depth read out to see how much digging will have to be done for the target. This is all given in inches very easy to follow. The next is the discriminating modes that the Quick Draw II has. Those modes are Disc/All-Metal, Notch, and Auto-Notch now these are all located along with Power on high sensitive nob and low to high Discrimination knob. What it boils down to is the Bounty Hunter" Quick Draw II" is and does everything the manual says. It is real easy to use and handle.

Last year I found some 600 pennies 200 quarters 300 dimes 200 nickels. I also found a lot toy cars, rings some 9.25, and others just as neat. All in all, the Quick Draw II is good metal detector easy to use, easy to read the digital face plate.

Review by Jonathan R on April 12, 2008

I enjoy detecting old farmsteads and freshwater beaches with my Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II. On the beaches, I have found lots of coins, no coins that were very old but I found two old World War Two tent stakes that had been used for the army in military training on this particular beach.
On an old farmstead I have found some really cool stuff, one of which is copper molding with some really artistic design that must have been the trim around a piece of furniture or possibly around a doorway. I found it at ten inches deep in hard packed soil outside the old doorway. I shined it up good and now I have it in my den. To think that the person who hung that copper trim up did so 100 to 150 years ago, is so gratifying to me. I am touching this piece of history. To wonder what that man might have dropped in his yard that I haven't found yet will keep me going back.

The Quick Draw is easy to tune and it’s basically a turn on and start searching. Its default is in the all metal mode so I leave it there most of the time. Sometimes I do use the Auto-Notch button on the beach which blocks out lots of trash. It shows a depth gauge from 0 to 10 inches which most of my finds have been in the 4 to 6 inch range. I would recommend this metal detector to everyone from novice to pro and for the money you can’t go wrong. I am happy with it and haven't had any problems at all with it. The Quick Draw II is a great metal detector for the money.

Around two years ago, I got my Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II with the intended use of amusement which has turned into a profitable passion for coin hunting, relic hunting, even uses that most people would not use it! This machine is easy to use and understand with features that I feel fit in with the pros. The meter display is easy to read and accurate. The controls give you the ability to adapt to all kinds of aspects and terrain. I have found two hundred plus dollars in coins. A one hundred five year old token and countless items of use; like nuts, bolts, washers and screws, including metals of Brass, Copper, Aluminum etc, that also can be turned in for cash. The depth of finds is excellent - up to two feet in some conditions. The discrimination control gives the ability to phase out metals of choice in conditions that would drive other detectors crazy. The headphone jack is also a plus for this machine. It comes with an eight and a half inch coil that is waterproof, and can be changed to a smaller coil. Other accessories can be adapted as well. The sensitivity control is one of the best on the market. I have been able to pinpoint items that others did not. I would highly recommend this machine to anyone with an interest in metal detecting.

Review by Andrew M on April 08, 2008

I am fairly new to metal detecting and drawn by the prospect of finding coins and relics. I wanted to start with a cost effective model and after finding treasure eventually upgrade. I researched a few models and talked to a few seasoned vets and most said this was a great model to start with. The price range was great and the learning curve was very easy to adjust to. After a few quick trips out to heavily visited river edges and beaches, I felt like I was a seasoned pro with my Quick Draw II. I learned the distinguishing beeps and sounds and could easily adjust the discrimination levels of detection depending on "trash" areas, old work sites, homesteads, iron ore beds and more. I liked that the sounds were much different and easy to decipher what I may be hovering over.

It seemed so easy and fun. Soon my Dad joined me with a much pricier model for some quality time. While his $1300 model may have the digital display and fine tuning mechanisms to hone in and really detect what type of metal we are coming across, we always utilize my $200 Quick Draw II to pinpoint the location and bring in our find field much closer to the target. It’s quite amazing. On our trips our typical finds with this detector are coins and trash items, such as cans, bottle tops, tabs, and the like. But we have found quite a few coins, and recently found (2) 1854 dimes, and an 1853 quarter in an area that had been scoured by many detectors before. I enjoy this detector and its learning qualities for the hobby so much that we bought my brother the same model to learn with. Metal Detecting is a great family hobby that is rewarding!

Review by Robin B on April 08, 2008

I enjoyed using this Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II metal detector and did use it on the Oregon Trail in parts of Nebraska. I found square nails, old animal traps, metal straps and other odd hardware. All of this was stuff that had fallen off of the wagons which were on their way to Oregon in the mid 1840s. I was even able to locate the site of a settler's home which had been attacked and burned to the ground. From a historical perspective, I can say that nothing beats a good metal detector. A good detector is easy to use, and provides a lot of fun for the whole family. In terms of finding anything really valuable, I can only say that I have on occasion found silver coins in beach and playground areas. A silver dime is worth a lot more than ten cents these days, and is well worth keeping. However, for me the real joy is finding something that is very old and bears testimony to what life must have been like in 19th century America. In one area in northwestern Missouri, some acquaintances of mine found round lead balls which had been used in "cap and ball" revolvers during the 19th century. Amazingly, they also found small arrowheads which had been used with bows and arrows. Finding these lead bullets, many of them deformed because they had been fired, and in association with the arrowheads is difficult to explain. However, it is our belief that this must have been the site of an encounter and battle between early settlers in the area, and Native Americans who were protecting their territory. What a story these relics could tell us if they could only speak!

I own the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II. So let’s face it, everyone isn't cut out to swing a metal detector all day long. Even though these new generations of detectors are light, well balanced, and easy to use; if the sight of an old shiny silver coin you found buried in the ground doesn't excite you, then you probably won't enjoy metal detecting. When I started detecting, you first had to read a ten page, confusing, start up manual. This was before you could just turn the machine on! A lot of the machines today are made so that even a newbie can turn their machines on. You can start hunting after familiarizing yourselves with an easy to understand and short manual. From the old six or seven pound detector I started out with, they're down to two to three pounds today.

Some of the machines made years ago didn't have a meter, which made it hard for a lot of people to use them. Listening to the audio was the only way you knew when your detector was over metal. As your experience with your machine grew, you would start to hear different tone pitches for all the different types of metal in the ground. By burying different coins, I learned the sound they make. Silver coin machines today all have meters that tell you what you're digging and even how deep it is. When I first started detecting I couldn't believe how much junk metal there was in my backyard. Sometime in the past everyone in town must have drank beer in my yard. I found at least three pounds of pull tabs, but after I had them dug up I started finding coins. Whenever a new generation of detectors comes out, I try to buy one. My wife isn't real happy about me buying a new one every year, but she doesn't mind wearing the jewelry I have found. I found a large silver brooch on her family’s old homestead; I bet you can guess who has it now.

Review by Jim S on March 18, 2008

I am involved with both coin hunting and gold nugget hunting. Although I am new to the fields of hunting, I feel that there are many brands on the market that are better suited for both fields. The Bounty Hunter (Quick Draw II) I have is quite cumbersome and awkward to handle and to use. The detector is economical to buy, but there are other brands better I think for the same or for a little more money. I have used the Gold Bug II that a friend has, and it is a very good machine, both easy to use and easy to handle. The price of this detector a quite a bit higher but the rewards are greater with it.

I have researched some into buying the Garrett Ace 250 and also the Garrett 2500. The 250 is a lower end, less expensive unit. I think for the money it is a very good machine, and it has some very good features that make it easy to use. The Garrett 2500 is quite a bit more expensive, but it has a lot more features to go along with it. The thing I would like to have is a unit that will be waterproof on the search coil for shallow water work (probably no more than 12" to 18".) This would be great for stream-bed hunting along with shallow beaches. The second thing would be that the unit is rugged enough for transporting on four wheelers. A person tries to be careful with the units, but accidents happen. Along with the units being dust proof. I will continue to check out detectors until I find the one that I feel is the best for me.

Review by Brian B on March 18, 2008

The Quick Draw II is great for a beginner, but lacks the option to place the coil over the target to pinpoint. You have to keep swinging left and right and forward and back to pinpoint the target. It seems too good for targets 6 to 8 inches down. It's easy to fine-tune the discrimination. The I.D. meter jumps around on targets so its hard to guess if the target is a pull tab or a dime.

Review by Adam H.

Review by Adam H on March 18, 2008

The Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II was my first ever metal detector. I had done a lot of research on features, cost, reliability and listened to what seasoned metal detecting enthusiasts had to say about this metal detector before I purchased it. In my opinion, this detector is the greatest bang for the buck, when it comes to a metal detector that you can just turn on and start detecting, but has features that make detecting a fun as well as rewarding experience. My experience in using the Quick Draw II (QDII) has been nothing but pleasurable. It's simple enough to learn rather quickly, but has the features that make this hobby fun and rewarding. The QDII will accept 3 different sizes of coils, (comes standard with an 8" coil). The manual is pretty straightforward and gives the user enough information to use the detector effectively. I've found lots of clad (modern day coinage), and a number of rings, tokens, toys etc. with the QDII.

The Target ID is quite accurate and the Depth Gauge is usually "right on the money". As you will learn about metal detecting, no detector will be 100% accurate, there are too many variables. Target ID is based on "probable" target characteristics and Depth Indication is based on the target being a coin sized object, so as these variables change, so will the indications. The Discrimination Feature works very well and is easy to set to accommodate various conditions. The QDII has some very nice features. It has a Sensitivity Control, Discrimination Control, Discrimination Mode, Notch Mode and an Auto-Notch Mode.The LCD Display has a Target Identification Indicator, accurate Depth Indicator and Low Battery Indicator. I love this metal detector because it is easy to use, very consistent and reliable and will find lots and lots of targets. As the title to this review indicates, the QDII is a real workhorse, it's a detector that I grab on the way out the door, head for a likely area and start detecting.

I have been using my Bounty Hunter for approximately three years and I enjoy it a lot. I bought it from Kellyco through the mail, and received great service from them. The person I talked to on the phone was very courteous and helpful in selecting my metal detector. My new Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II arrived with clear instructions on how to set it up and how to use it. I like the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II for its ease of use and simple operating procedures. The Quick Draw has simple to read indicators, it will tell you what size of coin you have found before you dig it up. It will also tell you if it is a pull tab or other metal object. I usually dig up every thing that I detect just to be safe. I have found coins and other metal objects up to a depth of nine inches. I have found that the readings have always been very accurate.

It uses batteries very sparingly and is very durable. I have left it in the trunk of my car for long periods of time with no adverse effects. It is a tough, durable and simple to use detector. It is simple to use, thus it would be a good pick for the first time detector to purchase. The Quick Draw II is very reasonably priced considering all the good qualities that have been built into the detector. I would give the Quick Draw II a four star rating based on its initial cost and the quality of the machine, also for its ease of use. I would definitely recommend this detector to anyone especially a newbie purchasing a first detector.

I will never use no other for coin shooting. The Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II is so accurate that when you have it set correctly you will stop wasting time on junk and maximize your time and effort. If you don't want to dig zinc pennies, don't. If it tells you that it is a zinc, it is a zinc. One tip, If you get a signal bouncing from nickel to pull tab, dig it, it may be a gold item. Get a good set of headphones and you will find more. You will be able to distinguish between tones better and there is something different about the tones.

I know that there are only three but it seems with headphones when you pass over a coin or something of value the tone sounds more intense. I don't know if that is true but try it and you will see. If you turn it on and press the Notch button, turn the sensitivity all the way up and the Disc/Notch knob to the 2:30 position you will have awesome success. If you are getting some trash items turn the Notch knob to the 3:00 position. First Texas builds the most user friendly detectors. In no time you will be finding treasure, and anyway what other hobby can you think of that gives you a return on your investment right away? The cost of the detector will be returned eventually, mine was paid for in two weeks after my first 18k gold ring with a small diamond ($750.00), and with the extra money I bought one that I could hunt in the water with.

The Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II was my first metal detector. My wife told me to pick one out online and she would buy it for my birthday. So I talked to several people about where to buy, and what brand to buy. Most people said to go to Kellyco.com. I did and I was so confused with so many brands. I read every thing I could about each brand and model. I then decided that a Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II would be what I needed since I had little or no experience. I ordered it and received it within a weeks time. I took it out the first weekend I had it. My brother had an older one so we went together. We went to a boat ramp at a local lake.

Within a few minutes it started to beep and on the screen it said it was a nickel. I took the knife that came with the unit and dug up a 1972 quarter. I was so excited I must have looked like I found a million dollars. About ten minutes later I found a 2001 dime. That day I found $1.46 in change, a small gold charm that was shaped like a fish that said Jesus on it, and several pull tabs. Every time I found a pull tab it said "pull tab" on the screen. Since then I have found several coins, four gold rings, one silver plated bracelet, and lots of other iron stuff, some of it is old iron tools. My brother was so impressed with the Bounty Hunter that he bought one just like it, also from Kellyco.com. We both go together and compete to see who finds the most "treasure". I have the ear phones and a carrying case that came with it also.

The Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II is really easy to use and is light enough that I don't get worn out. I wanted to start finding coins, relics and possibly gold such as rings, watches, bracelets and stuff like that. I purchased my Bounty Hunter about 7 1/2 years ago and have been fairly satisfied with it. I have found quite a few coins and a lot of old beer and soda pull tabs on forty acres that I own and also some old rifle cartridges. I have not found any gold yet, but I'm still looking.

I like the three tone feature that tells me what kind of target I pass over and also how it relates the depth of the item so when I start digging for it I have an idea how far I have to go. It also has an auto discrimination button which saves time and when I know there are a lot of s-tabs in the area that I am searching in that really comes in handy. My Bounty Hunter also lets me know what is in the ground as far as the coins, whether it's a zinc penny, dime, nickel, quarter, half dollar or dollar. If you're just starting out in metal detecting don't want to spend an arm and a leg, the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II is a good unit to start to learn the basics and still get results.

Review by Dave A on March 17, 2008

I was introduced to metal detecting about three years ago by a friend of mine. He loaned me one of his detectors (an older model White's). I found many coins with that detector. It did not have all the bells and whistles of the newer models with just a beeper, but it worked well. Subsequently, I purchased two Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II metal detectors last year for my wife and myself. I have been unsatisfied with them from the start. This is a very difficult machine to use. The discrimination is hard to adjust and frankly for me it is impossible. I can't find anything with this machine, and I have given up. I want to buy a new detector, but do not want to make another $500 mistake. I would not recommend the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II to anyone.

Review by Patrick S on March 17, 2008

While recovering from a serious neck surgery over 6 years ago, I had lots of time on my hands to watch tv. I saw an ad for metal detectors late one night and thought that would be lots of fun. I started researching detectors the next day. I had a budget that was not very big and found the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II to be the best for my money at the time. I received my detector before I could actually go and start hunting, I decided to start small around the house as the DVD had suggested. I made a "garden" of items of different materials and depths and started to figure out how to use my Quick Draw II.

The controls were just a little confusing at first but after detecting in my garden it all became clear. I started to hunt at places like school yards and the local park. I live in a Civil War "Hot Spot" in Northern Virginia; my first find was a cast iron skillet, that's right a skillet, and it was almost 18 inches down. My first thought was "WOW" then after getting it out of the ground almost 20 minutes later I was just a little disappointed. I have a friend that works for the National Archives in Washington D.C. and he took one look and got so excited and asked me where I had found it? I told him and he commenced to explain to me that it was from the early 1800's and was almost positive that it was from a Confederate soldier. I have found the only draw back to the Quick Draw II was the lack of a "Pinpoint" mode. I have had to dig more than most of my fellow hunters.

In closing I would give the Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II a 3 out of 5 rating only because the lack of pinpointing. The meter and ID feature work great and are very accurate.

The Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II is very easy to use and has a loud enough beep to be able to distinguish the different sound tones. I enjoy detecting in soft sand / dirt, and this metal detector has given me and my girlfriend many hours of fun and excitement. We did have two of the same models but one was stolen so now I am the digger and she is the hunter. We have found keys, lot of coins, jewelry and bullets. I would recommend this detector to anyone.

The instructions are user friendly and has enabled me to coin shoot with some success. I have already found coins with little effort and frankly at minimal cost (for the detector). The coins I detected were found by following specific instructions outlined in the Bounty Hunter owner manual. It was simple, turn on the detector, push the DISC / ALL METAL touch pad, and turn the sensitivity knob 3/4 of a turn to the right. Now that I have experienced basic metal detecting, I am looking forward to expanding my searches by utilizing all the features of my new Bounty Hunter II. The other modes will allow me to further discriminate unwanted metals. These additional modes are as easy to understand and use as coin shooting was.

I think it is important to research possible hunting sites to ensure you are not trespassing on private property or breaking any local laws. I also think it is good idea to join a local metal detecting club. Some of the members have a tremendous amount of experience, and being new to the detecting hobby you cannot put a price on their knowledge. Finally, as a new metal detectorist, I know I have only scratched the surface. But, I also know that my new Quick Draw II will allow me to expand my dreams. If there are people out there who are also dreaming of treasure I would strongly recommend they consider the Quick Draw II. For the money its a metal detector that will most likely pay for itself in no time. Good hunting!

Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II is awesome for coin shooting. Press the Notch button and turn the disc knob to the 2:30 and the sens to full.

I have been hunting for nearly 8 years and found that you get what you pay for. The Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II machine is a great little machine for the very beginner, even consider getting it for small children. I started out with this machine, and believe it or not did fairly well at local parks. I could find a pocket full of clad in no time... but the machine just couldn't get the depth I thought I'd need to make some older finds. I personally think the machine is priced really well for the power, and if someone's looking to maybe try their hand at the hobby. This is an easy and inexpensive way to get in fast. It's also a less expensive way to give your children a fun filled day at the park hunting money.

The detector is a turn on and go machine with a few adjustments like the trash setting so you're not out there digging pop tops all day, and it runs on a single 9 volt battery pretty much all day, no stop use. It's also really lightweight so your arm is not so fatigued at the end of the day. This machine will make plenty of kids really happy, and who knows, might even start them in a hobby they will use for a life time. Great machine, great price, easy to use and simply a starter machine for anyone of all ages that wants to get outdoors for a little adventure. Fun with the whole family.
