  1. As much as I prefer to hunt alone....that area sounds like it might be wise to definitely start using the (armed) Buddy System...????
  2. No doubt the wifey has to pay rental on that tector with greater portion of gold she finds per hunt....?????
  3. I added an SDC last season and glad I did so now I always pack 2 detectors as long as I'm not too far from the quad. If I have to pack straight up the mtn on foot then maybe only take one depending on the site and and/or how much trash? What's important to me is how I can best manage my time per hunt. Sometimes I use the Monster in an area and follow up with the SDC and sometimes vice-versa. When I use the SDC I "usually" find a target first and flag it until I've flagged approximately 10 targets, then I'll grab the Monster and work the 10 targets. It's a real time saver imo. Always
  4. Take this advice to heart...especially if you also hunt turf.
  5. Not sure if an SD is the same as an SDC? If it is, so far I've had no trouble finding gold while wearing these boots alongside the SDC as long as I keep the coil out front?
  6. I also started a magnificent quest for a different kind of gold in Dayton NV at age 18...... namely the Kit Kat ranch, Starlight & Moonlight Ranch....lol😇
  7. Not sure if these would be considered "detecting boots" but I'm partial to my Whites Smokejumpers. https://whitesboots.com/firefighter/the-original-smokejumper/
  8. I somewhat agree. When I must use headphones I currently use Sennhauser 280 pro (I think that's the one) for my Etrac and they'll also fit the Goldmonster with the adaptor that comes standard with the phones. They'll fit both 1/4 and 1/8" plug. I also use the long corded, noise canceling, audiophile phones for my drum practice. Phones are about $100 if I remember right, and have been using the one pair for at least 11 yrs now. Never had a pair of Minelab equipted Koss phones I liked?
  9. Hmmmm? I guess the two I currently use for gold as I quit coin shooting...but still can't seem to part with my beloved coin shooter the Etrac. Swung a Tesoro Golden Sabre for coins for 22yrs and I was very happy with it. The old coins were starting to disappear after the 22yr run so I bought a Tesoro Tejon that had better depth. The Tejon had good depth but no real info and I noticed real quick I was digging a lot of deep trash, I NEEDED INFO. Sold the Tejon and bought the Etrac and trash/ treasure ratio did a total 180. Good bye Tesoro and Hello MINELAB!!!!! Got tired of old coins and
  10. Ditto Lunk...!!!! It's ALL GOOD and you just gotta take whatever kind of gold you have to work with? Be glad you have access to any gold areas as many don't. Keep on em!!!!!!
  11. Love the Monster and have learned to adjust to most of it's short comings. With that said....the improvement I'd really enjoy is a two tone machine so I don't have to spend as much time watching the screen. jmo
  12. Quit watching it along with all the other "treasure" shows years ago... Oak Island just kept on repeating "Could it be...????" over and over again....lol
  13. Nice pics and writeup.... that hog nugget and it's friends are impressive...good job!!!! Keep the pics coming to help us northern boys get thru winter....
  14. Is this intended to be used or a wall hanger? Either way...only thing I can think of is to firmly smack head down on cement to force head on handle as best you can then soak in a light oil like hydraulic oil to expand what little the old shot handle has left? Doubt it'll be usable but who knows? Soaking in oil it won't dry out and shrink back as fast as water does and any petroleum product eventually rots out wood but the handle is toast anyways? My falling axe handle has shrunk and the head has been loose for years now. Being I'm cheap, no longer fall timber for a living, and only fi
  15. Last week I was looking at 14" of the white crap and below zero temps. This week snow all gone, sun shinning, and 60+ degrees so I headed out for more cleanup work on some gold. Anyways...had fun, got some sun, and outta the shack!!!! The big 6 had a whopping weight of .270g...!!! Big or small...I love em all.
  16. Me thinks you are SOL on that "just bling detector". Due to different sizes, weight, gold or silver, depth, purity, etc. etc., your "bling" is gonna be all over the map from low to high. I believe you'll just have to stick with what all "bling" detectors unfortunately have to do and that is dig it all..... jmo
  17. Suprisingly enough they are VERY tasty...!!!! Imo best description I can give is a cross between venison and pork, a white meat, and about the same texture as a porkchop...? They are not really that big, usually 100-125lb range, big cat 150lbs+ Here's some good pics from a few winters ago off one of my trail cams. If you want more cat pics I got tons, just not sure if Steve wants the stuff on this forum....
  18. Gonna call it for the season. These are the last little bits I could work out on a location cleanup before the rain came today. Already driven through a dusting of snow and it's getting cold with short days....that time of year. Ended up with 8ozt. and count was 484 pieces for the season. Had a blast. Thanks to everybody for the comments and likes, etc.!!!!!
  19. Forgot to mention that I've also somehow managed to lose a rake over near Helena and have been back a couple times since hunting and also trying to find that rake.... GONE....lol Couple weeks ago I'd found a 12 grammer and a couple tiddlers. I decided it was about lunch time and also time to admire the big 12 grammer. So while I'm eating a sandwich and looking into my vile at the 12'er I notice a small piece of wood or brush along with my gold in the vile so I blow out the debris, finish my sandwich and proceed to hunt some more. 10-15 min later I find another tiddler and reach for the
  20. Phrunt... You own every detector ever made?...lol Gotcha...(couldn't resist a poke...lol)
  21. I'm loving my new-to-me ill handling boat anchor with cardboard in between the batteries SDC so it'll be with me for a long time....lol Like to learn the one(s) I use to the best of my abilities before any switch ups.....jmo
  22. Weather here has just been too damn nice to call the season over just yet. Managed to get out this week on Tues. and Wed. and scrounged up 2 pieces on Tues. and 15 on Wed. Supposed to be another nice week ahead after rain this weekend? Hopefully a few more hunts before I call it....
  23. LMAO.... yeah, I've lost a few falling axes when I was falling. Tried florescent paint and that's good for about 2 days...lol
