Hello Fellow Coin shooters,

We have been trying to get permission to coin hunt a piece of property for years now. At the end of January this year we finally got it! These pictures was taken at the end of January 23rd after we got home....at that time we had only taken out 474 coins or so and a few rings, the two best I am holding. We just got home today Feb 4th, have only hunted 6 more times for a couple of hours each time, and now we're up to 1181 coins taken from the same ground. Good news is we have removed most of the shallow coins and relics, and the good coins are starting to surface. I have been hunting since 1969, my wife has been coin shooting ever since we met. I started out with an old relco in '69 but as soon as I had found enough change I bought me an Alaskan tr, then the fun really started. My wife has the DFX 300, an we have the first DFX as a backup. I along with many others still cling to the old style with the meters. I even bought another broke down 6000 Di pro to fix so i would have a backup for my old faithful Di Pro.....Sorry, just don't like buttons and digital readouts! If we hit the big one we'll let you know.
