Beginner Metal Detecting Tips


So… you just bought your first metal detector and you’re looking for any help you can find. You came to the right place! First, we would suggest that you join a metal detecting or treasure hunting club. You will learn a lot more, a lot quicker, from other club members then you would by yourself! You will also find new friends, share your finds, and get support for the hobby. For some people, it’s easier to hunt with a group than by yourself. If your looking for a partner you’ll find one there. Most clubs will let you come as a guest. Visit several to find the right one for you. You can even join more than one if you want to.

Trash and Treasure

Great finds make this hobby exciting and interesting! If every time you go out, all you find is a few pennies or just rubbish, more than likely, your detector is going to wind up in a closet gathering dust! You will find treasures if you’re really looking. But don’t expect to find good stuff only, you will find lots of RUBBISH! There’s just no way to get around it. When we come back from a day of detecting, probably 60 to 80% of what we have found goes right back into the trash can. However, a lot of what you find depends on where you go and how much you know about your detector.
