What Was The Name Of The Metal Detecting Tv Show . . .


Recommended Posts

. . . where two guys wandered around the USA detecting relics and coins? They used Garrett's AT detectors I think back. They would locate/research historical homes and other locations of interest, then ask for permission to hunt. There was a different story every week I think.

I always thought that historic wagon train trails would cough-up great finds. I would assume one could travel the same pathway, either by road or off-round, with proper research and planning.

I would like watch those shows again.

Hi Billy, was it “Diggers” by National Geographic?

I haven’t seen it, but it sounds interesting from the online description.

Wanted to watch Dig Fellas, but it's not available anywhere.  The detecting program from the UK was great, although it was fictional.

I'm sure some parts have been detected.  You still have all the typical difficulties of permissions, protections, destructive modernization,...

I do not think it's worthwhile to just wander any old "historic wagon train trail".   Instead, you want to hunt where they stopped at nights.   Eg.:  The recurring stopping spots (since each passing wagon/group would tend to re-use the same spots, over and over).   Eg.:  Like stage stops, springs, trading posts, etc......

There's several spots in Wyo where the old trail(s) are still very visible and not the touristy type spots.  Seen a few of these locations NE of Fontanelle Res. while working the oil patch.  Agree with Tom tho...long shot at best, look for the spots where they congregated along the way.......

Right. You must research and plan.
