Thread: Where to detect?

    Where to detect?

    My moto is you can find anything, anywhere, anytime, just dig it. I have been over the same ground 10 times and will find something I swear wasn't there the last time and I mean not just on the surface. I think when temp and moisture levels change
    , land or water, the halo changes and that when things perk up. I also sincerely believe you find what you are ment to and do not find what you are NOT supposed to. It gets all Zen like out there for me. I never resist the "hunches". They always pay off. How about you?

    I like to hit pounded sites after a good rain....I really hear the difference... also after a 1/2 inch of snow, when you can really hit every inch as you can see where you've been....not the 31-degree heavy wet stuff that sticks to your coil, the 25-degree light variety.

    That's the one good thing about the snow is seeing where you have been. But I will state it puts a damper on swinging. You don't know where every tree branch is at under the snow.
