Bounty Hunter VLF Treasure and Gold Metal Detector
- Product Review (submitted on March 20, 2008):
- Howdy, just wanted to share one of my favorite hobbies with you all, it's treasure hunting. I have a Bounty Hunter Pioneer 505 I bought from a local department store in town, it does a good job targeting in on coins, jewelry and metal relics. I found a civil war button, couple of musket balls,1944 fifty cent piece, lots of quarters, dimes, nickels, pennies, a silver and turquoise ring, silver cross with two white beads and Indian head pennies. I've got a handful of them now. The best one I have is an 1897 in great condition. I found a thin gold chain although it was broken I still keep it, the weight nowadays is soaring up $$$$ so I save all the stuff. When I was a teen I used a detector, I don't recall the name but it was a heavy one that took a bunch of batteries and had a gauge with a needle that moved over if you crossed over something. I did not have much luck then, but nowadays there is so much modern mechanics it can tell you exactly where an object is, even what it is and how far down to dig. That's amazing. Makes it so easy you know when you go out there's no doubt you will bring something home every time, unless the weather prohibits you. I just love going out to the wilderness and finding where cabins once stood and checking around the grounds, or going to public places after a big fair, just anywhere is fun to check you never know what's there till you check it out. I really enjoy having a Bounty Hunter, it's lightweight and has a curved handle to hold it easier. It also came with a coil to find gold that's a nice bonus, plus a video how to use it ,and a bag to wear on your waist with a shovel too. I have been a happy hunter for the last 2 years and hope to be for many more. - Karen in wild and wonderful West Virginia.
