In this series, we have selected 100 metal detecting finds that were extremely difficult to detect and recover, and provide details on the circumstances and techniques that contributed to their successful recovery.
KEEPER: A salad I made from some finds after a short late afternoon one hour hunt near my house. A salad? Yeah a salad. My wife is a professional photographer and decided to have some fun with it.
SITE: Small civil war campsite on a creek
SITE EVALUATION: 6 of 10 One of those little honey holes I can go to occasionally and usually pull out something good.
One hour hunt: If you have a full-time job and struggle with finding time to detect, try to fit in at least one regularly scheduled one hour hunt every week.
The important thing here is to develop some “honey holes” that you can go to – sites with potential that you can hunt anytime without having to get permission. And don’t hunt those sites on your regular hunts. Save them for one hour hunts and for emergency backup.
You will be surprised at how productive these one hour hunts can be.
Photograph Your Finds: Cleaning, researching, preserving and photographing my finds are at least as fun as finding them. Have fun with it.
