I was out the the CRP field the other day and picked up a lot of trash. Parts from tractors, cars, Old Shotgun casing..the metal part, Some fence line. I was out looking for some arrows with Bh's I wasn't able to recover after last seasons hunt. I actually found a piece of the Carbon shaft and did a circle out search with the metal detector...it's tough trying to detect in and around brush. I never did recover them after two searches. I have found coin in my own yard but it was modern coins. Today I went out to the side yard for some searching. I ended up finding an arrow I lost in the ground a good 4-5 years ago. I also found either a traditional head FP or a Crossbow point. I'm not sure though as I don't use wood arrow shafts or glue on points. I love metal detecting. I do need to upgrade the detector though. I really like the Garrett AT Pro.
I'm still praying for a lost gold Cache!.

I honestly need to get one and go scan the archery range at the state park ... I don't know if it was there or somewhere in my house that I ... "misplaced" my wedding band. Have another that we originally bought, but my wife decided to pick up another one for some reason before the wedding.

Make sure you check the laws out for your area. Some states have some crazy hardline laws against metal detecting. I am able to detect at some state parks but I have to fill out an registration form and when given approval i can stay in the area's for detecting only. I wanted to search the shoreline on Lake Roosevelt so i called up the NPS for more info. they told me I cannot and it's illegal. 10,000 dollar fine. just be safe and ask someone first.

I'd like to give it a try just don't wanna go to jail. What ever hapened to finders keepers and possession being 9/10ths? States,counties and cities just don't want us to have fun and take "their" money. BTW take a look @ a show called "Diggers" its about detecting, kind of cool.

I just got a metal detector out to my club the other day. My purpose was to find some arrows I lost several years ago. One was an ACC. As luck would have it I found 5 arrows---none of them mine. How come that always happens?

This detecting is getting addicting. Every time I hear a loud ping sound I'm down on the ground digging. Most of the time its trash...nails, brass from shotgun shells, metal parts from cars,farm equipments, barbwire. My son found some coins in the side yard but they were new probably change that fell out of my pockets. lol. I think my son found a new hobby. I do need to upgrade. I asked my wife to get me one of those droid tablets for Christmas but now I just asked her to about a Garrett AT Pro metal detector. This is is weather proof. I've chatted with the in emails late at night and seems to be a great guy. This machine will tell you if its a coin or not. my machine is old and won't do that.

For the same reason you always find things in the last place you look.

I lost another arrow today while shooting my recurve. I short stroked the shot and drove it into the grass about 20 yards in front of me. I even seen it go in but I kept on shooting. I should have stopped and went straight to it and dug it up. I pulled the detector out and couldn't get a ping on any metal. I was fooling around with the recurve shooting at 40 yards...I shouldn't even had attempted it. :)
