Metal Detector fun. You don't need a beach to have fun with one, although I must admit during this time of year I would certainly love being in the southern states with a metal detector on the beach.
While it is cold outside, why not get on the computer and do some investigation on historic places where you live. Every area has history. Once you have done that stop on over to Bass Pro Shop and take a look at the metal detectors we have and which one sounds like it would be a good fit for you. It is never too early to get involved with metal detection. Running the events here at Bass we have had a metal detector box where the kids find arrowheads. They absolutely love it. What better way to get a child outside than to have a grandparent or parent search for items with a metal detector?
The Bounty Hunter Junior Metal Detector can detect coin sized objects up to 5 inches deep and large objects up to 3 feet deep. The speaker sound increases as your object get closer. Nice and light for the young enthusiast. The Bounty Hunter Junior also has a discrimination mode, and sensitivity control.
Now that the young one in your life is taken care of , perhaps you should consider the Bounty Hunter Camo LS Metal Detector. This is great for the novice or expert. Take a look at this unit with its 4 mode operation, and touchpad selection . This detector is built for all seasons and conditions. Easy to use and easy to learn on, you will not be disappointed.
The Teknetics Delta Metal Detector discriminates between different metal. Using only a 9V battery, this detector is user friendly. Check out the 3 Tones and a adjustable sensitivity with 3 operation modes.
Stop on by and ask for Bill in our Camping Department. He can answer just about any question you may have about getting started on your history hunt. I think you will surprised just how much fun you can have by yourself or with your family.
