  1. All yours video are great, but watched this yesterday and had to save it. Thank you Sir!
  2. Congratulations Mr. Hurd. I was just on your YouTube page yesterday and watching & learning from your video on panning cons.
  3. Watched the instruction video and used the tables today. Thank you for posting this.
  4. Ya, nothing ruins a day out prospecting more then the natural views and the wildlife sightings. Just spoils a prospectors day!
  5. I sure hope not. I have lurked around here for about 5 years. I really enjoy this forum and I have learned much here. I am not an active poster/contributor, but I visit very regularly. I will make an effort to give more. Like most have already said, it is very important to keep prospecting healthy, and this day & age, forums like this are one of the best ways to do this IMHO. Happy Hunting, -Joe
  6. Alwaysdirty - Yes, I do find the birdshot, boot tacks, slivers of metal shaved off the pick and blessed with a piece of gold on occasion, some, amazingly small. I don't have the confidence to skip the signals of the hot rocks. Some are obvious to me and others not. I do carry a small piece of gold that I toss down from time to time to remind myself of that distinct "zip - zip". I do know from burying my test nugget, that I don't have to go more then a couple inches and the signal is lost. This piece may weigh a couple tenths, if that. My concern is that if I don't rake the dirt out in the location I am detecting that I will miss these pieces due to the lack of depth for the GB. A lot of the areas I detect are not right on bedrock.
  7. BD - care to share the settings you use? Yes, it is a significant amount to spend, which is why I am asking what it will do that my GB won't. I do find the GB frustrating with those little red/black hot rocks. I don't have the experience though to know if that is something one lives with in any detector. Also, I find that I do a lot of digging, raking, scanning and then repeat, due to the shallow depth of the GB.
  8. Thank you DOC...that is the information I was looking for - a direct comparison between the two. Ahorton10 - why you thinking of selling yours?
  9. Thanks for the reply garimpo. We may have a 2300 in the arsenal Monday...then again maybe we won't...wife pending.
  10. Thank you for the replies. I think its time to start negotiations with the wife.
  11. I have a Gold Bug II and I run it with the 6 ½ in coil. I do all of my prospecting here in AZ. I have been looking at the Minelab SDC 2300. What will the 2300 do for me that the GB won’t? I have looked on the net and have not been able to find any comparisons. Thank you, -Joe ​
  12. Thanks again, it looks like it may work great as a motorized pack mule on narrow trails.
  13. Thread-jack Warning... azblackbird, How does the ROKON work out for you? Never heard of one until you posted your question. Are you able to carry much gear with it in rugged canyon country (I only have foot trails). I am just looking to replace the pack frame and hiking boots. If I am making the same number of trips, but have the weight on the vehicle and not me, I would be happy. I am looking at the Yamaha Grizzly quad, but the ROKON looks like an interesting option. Thanks, -Joe
  14. I was going to pack the truck tonight for a couple days of drywashing...will wait and see what we get for rain now. Perfect drywashing weather this weekend, as long as things stay dry.
  15. Tragic, tragic news. All of our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fire fighters and with the people of Yarnell.
