Bounty Hunter Tracker IV Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 17, 2008):
The Bounty Hunter Tracker IV was the first and only metal detector that I have owned since I became interested in the field of treasure hunting 2 years ago. Since that time I have had the opportunity to go out treasure hunting with my detector 8 to 15 times a year, which isn't a lot but is always fun.
Even though I don't go out a lot with my detector I have to say that it was very easy to set up and read. The buttons are easy to understand and the different selections are just a click of the button and turn of the dial away. I have even been able to teach my 6 year old the basics to use the metal detector and he even enjoys it.
I have tried to, typically, go to local parks or areas that surround old schools that are now closed down. The parks are a great place to go to with the Tracker IV because of the relative ease in changing your search criteria and it seems to penetrate into the ground fairly deep. It also helps that the weight of the metal detector is light enough to not hurt your arm, elbow or shoulder after long duration scanning. While scanning old school grounds I have found it nice to tune out metals that seem to show up all the time, like those old coke can pull tabs. Since starting my metal detecting career I still have not focused on any particular type of searching, other than when in a park I try to search for coins or jewelry and at the school sites, trying to search for old coins or maybe something that a student would have used either for lunches or a toy of some sort.
