  1. I have been nugget detecting in the AZ. deserts for 45 years and have never been threatened by a coyote, bobcat or even bigfoot. As for snakes, if you can't jump out of the way faster than you can get your digger or 357 out and aim & shoot then u should stay home in your rocking chair. mho
  2. Sucking the juice out of it. Hey you only live once right.🤣 Don't swaller the yeller part.
  3. This is akin to the first m.d. contest I attended back around 196? put on by D Tex detectors and Bill Mahan. Only D Tex won .
  4. I bought my first detector in 1961, a Detectron and started hunting parks and old mining camps in Colo. and really enjoyed it. Started nugget hunting with a Garrett in 1983 in Az. I am slowing way down but I will probably die still owning a detector.
  5. My nemesis is the Sonoran desert, but I'm winning a few battle's
  6. I think the DD 11" coil handles the hot gnd better
  7. The Ax comes with 2 great coils and 2 more at a very reasonable price. The unique DD is special. Love mine.
  8. Do use any, tried em once. Have callouses instead. They are a pain the arse imo.
  9. Years ago before they started making coil covers we used a large rubber band cut from a car tire inner tube stretched around the coil
