Hunting with a protocol

12 Feb

I have a standard protocol I hunt with:

1) Dig all coin signals at any depth.

2) Dig all signals that are four inches deep or deeper, unless I am convinced the signal is iron.

3) If I am finding a lot of the new square pulltabs at  four inches then I adjust the must-dig depth on step two by one inch.

4) Always re-scan the hole after I remove a target. Masking is everywhere!

This protocol works for me.  It may seem like an obvious protocol but I didn’t always hunt with a protocol in mind. I think having a protocol and sticking to it makes for a more interesting hunt.

The protocol is a living thing. I will adjust it as I learn more about metal detecting in general and as I learn more about my detectors specifically.

Thank you for looking!
