Ruminations 5

A FALSE DICHOTOMY

Relic Hunter vs CoinShooter. Beach Hunter vs DryLander. Minelab vs Garrett. I have touched on this topic before. There is no difference! Whether you are ‘searchin for history’ (many people use this phrase) or simply looking for coins, we are the same animal. Let’s concentrate on the fundamentals instead of nitpicking.
1) Always cover your holes.
2) Dig plugs responsibly.
3) Respect public and private property.
4) Be courteous to the general public – no matter what.

I ran into this kind of thing when I used to fish. I remember going into a fly-fishing outfit to buy some neoprene gloves and being treated like dirt by the fly-fishermen at the store because I was a lure fisher. Come on. At the end of the day, we were all killing fish (and don’t kid yourself, catch and release doesn’t work, only 4% of the fish released survive the day).

IT’S HOT!!!!

Another day above 100 (104-106 expected). I’ve noticed even the biting fly population is down! Still, I was born in one of the hottest places on earth (the Great Sonoran Desert) and lived there until I was 15. So my body has some kind of built-in resistance to this and I hunt no matter what the temps are. The only drawback is the concrete-like soil!

SHARING SITES

This one is controversial. I want to be a good pal and include as many people as possible whenever I find a good site. However, there is only a handful of guys who will include me when they find a good site. I think I want to reward the guys who regularly include me.

GIRL HUNTERS

Why aren’t there more girl hunters out there? I’ve met one in the whole 14 months I’ve been doing this. I know of another one but I never met her. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy hanging out with the guys but sometimes it is nice to talk to a girl.

Thank you for looking!

    I’m a girl hunter! I wish there were more also. All of the guy hunters I have met have been really cool and nice, especially all of the ones I met through my club. I am pretty active in the club now, and whenever there is a new girl that comes to one of the meetings, especially one on the younger side, I try to talk to her and make her feel welcome, hoping she’ll come back and come to the hunts! It doesn’t work very often, but I will keep trying.
