Bounty Hunter Lone Star Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
I have always loved the search for the unknown... coins and jewelry were the first to pop up and have seemed to be the most fun investigating. Metal detecting has been a wonderful hobby for me and an incredible tool in building my relationship with my father. The Bounty Hunter Lone Star sent us out on many searches that not only drew us closer to each other, but, closer to more and more small finds that kept us investigating together. The Bounty Hunter was always the easiest to use in pinpointing finds and telling what should be additionally searched. It included a carry bag and treasure pouch that came in very useful during trips. I have found the interchangeable coils to be very useful in different searches and the adjustable sensitivity has been a great time-saver. I am always utilizing the 3-tone audio discrimination. The grip handle is very comfortable and the overall weight under 5 pounds makes it easy to carry everywhere. We upgraded to headphones and other coils as we learned more and more about metal detecting through sites such as Kellyco Detectors and Lost Treasures Magazines online site. The use of pin pointers are the next step for my searches to become more productive.
After my dad passed away, and I moved back closer to home, I went out antique hunting in areas where our ancestors had lived in upstate South Carolina. During one of our searches of an old homestead of ours from the 1700s, I used my Bounty Hunter to locate change under the front doorway area of the house. I figured that people may have accidentally dropped change in that area putting hands in and out of pockets. I was able to locate several pennies from the mid 1700s. I kept one that is one of my most treasured finds. The fact that one of my relatives may have carried it around over 250 years ago is just incredible. A metal detector such as the Bounty Hunter has been and will always be a wonderful part of my life.
