New Guy From Southwest Georgia

Recommended Posts

Hi all my name is Jeff from Southwest Georgia. I’m new to metal detecting and have a Garrett Ace Apex on the way. Hopefully I’ll be able to learn a lot from all the more experienced members here.

Glad to have you here, and I know there are plenty of people to help you learn not only your new machine, but to help you along the way. There are many good people on here that I am sure you will enjoy talking to because of their experience.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Welcome, Jeff!  Are you close enough to the Gulf Coast to be able to do some beach/surf detecting?  Regardless, there is every kind of detecting (and then some) represented here and sharing knowledge and experiences is a big part of this site.

Howdy Jeff,

  Glad you found the forum! Lots of information, and great people! I've been detecting around the Moultre area a few times, when I go up that way for hunting season! Also detected in Albany and Sylvester! Much better historic finds than here in S. Florida! I hope you find a bunch with the new detector! Let us know how it goes!👍👍

      G'day from lovely downunder. I thought I'd introduced myself but evidently not, apologies.
      I had a GP3000 and 3500 many years ago. Had to sell up due to divorce but kept my Sovereign GT for the beach and parks.
      Back on the hunt now so will be picking up a GM soon when they come back up on special, and something a bit better down the road when I'm a better off financially.
      Just thought I'd say hi,,,and yes I have an old banjo LOL.

       I'm a old (age over 50) detectorist from Italy. I used a lot of m.d. in 26 years (various model of Minelab, Whites, Tesoro, XP, Fisher, Garrett and the latest Rutus), but i love so much the Whites Spectrum XLT. This is for me the best detector of all time. I hope to know news and interesting contents about the magic m.d. world!
      Greetings from Italy

      I have some unexpected extra time on my hands and am going to give metal detecting another try after quite a few years.  I was on a couple of forums that might not exist anymore.  I took the detectors out of the closet and brushed off the cobwebs and dust.  I have a Troy Shadow X2, Tesoro Bandido II, and a Whites GMT.  I mainly used the Shadow for hunting for relics and found a few. I recently sold a Tesoro Eldorado to a friend and hopefully he'll get the detecting bug and we can go out and find something interesting.    I'd like to resume the hobby and search for relics, gold, and meteorites out here in the desert.  This is a great forum with expert reviews on detectors and many informative posts.  I hope to learn quite a bit and enjoy the hobby.

      I am retiring at the end of August.  I will be pulling my 5th wheel around the US hunting nuggets and relics.  I have been mostly vacation detecting for a couple of years now.  I am really looking forward to doing A LOT more of it with way better equipment.  I have met a lot of other detectorists out there and what I'm looking most forward to is making friends with more of you.  I get a lot of enjoyment from sitting around the campfire swapping stories, getting to know people and absorbing some of the vast knowledge of how and where to hunt.  I hope to see y'all down the road!

      Joined this forum and wanted to say hi. Started detecting in January when I purchased an Equinox. Have only been detecting on the beach areas around Fort Myers so far and love it.
