Ever been Metal Detecting?


I went with my uncle a couple of times, over thirty years ago. We went around the Port Hudson area and found a few things. The coolest was a civil war sword. Have any of you been?....found anything cool?

Just started. The coolest thing I've found thus far is the tab from a beer can.

I'm thinking about getting one.

I saw one model that is also good for shallow water detecting for $300 or so comes with $200 of extra stuff..

Meh. I've never been bored enough to spend hours looking for shiny but mostly worthless objects.

I also did it with an uncle before, looked around Daytona Beach before I think we found someone's nose or tongue ring before. We looked during bike week so it didn't surprise him when we found it.

Baton Rouge is a great place for electronic archeology. There is a lot of history downtown and there is a very active metal detecting crowd in BR. If you drive around downtown on a weekend morning, you'll probably see guys with their sticks playing cat and mouse with the police.

If you want to get into treasure hunting, go to a local dealer and buy a used detector from one of the better companies like White's or Fisher. Don't buy from Kellyco. Go visit the online forums and join a club and learn from the veterans.
