Here are 6 reasons why you might want to hunt with a detecting partner:
You will find more targets when hunting with good partners for a lot of reasons, including:
1: It’s Easier to get metal detecting permissions. We all have connections through friends, family and co-workers, and when detecting with a partner our network of potential detecting permissions doubles.
