Nathan Jaeger from Tesoro

Last Thursday I picked up the phone to call Tesoro to check on the status of my request to borrow the Tesoro Outlaw to do articles. It was the first time I spoke with Nathan. The conversation started out normal but things quickly changed when I started asking him about Tesoro metal detectors. Suddenly his whole tone changed and you could hear the passion pouring out of him. It was so exciting for me to hear a corporate guy talk so passionately about their products. An hour later I am asking him to be on our podcast, he instantly accepted…

My first youtube video (in a long time)

I went park hunting with the Tesoro Outlaw for the first time yesterday morning. Although I didn’t find much it was a great learning experience! I didn’t know what to think, being used to VDI metal detectors with depth gauge and multi-tones, I was concerned it would be to far out of my norm. Within minutes of metal detecting though I quickly learned that by turning the discrimination knob I had a general idea of what I might be digging. I even called a copper penny before I dug it! The next thing I noticed is how quickly I could…

I have a date in the morning!

I am ready! I received the Tesoro Outlaw two whole days ago and it’s been crazy around here! Tomorrow though, I will finally be getting out with this detector! I’ve used this awesome detector relic hunting (you can read about it here) but I haven’t had the chance to hunt with it at schools, parks and houses.  Stay tuned as I will be posting updates here and on the website regularly!

Metal Detecting Etiquette

I was a member of a Facebook group page up until a few weeks ago. This particular group page was a manufacture specific group. When Garrett announced the release of the AT Max I started seeing some posts in this particular group, people making fun of the AT Max. If you have ever met me you know I love to joke, laugh and have a good time but the laughs, in this case, I didn’t find funny at all. I believe there is a time and place for jokes and laughs but when you’re part of a group that is…

Tesoro Metal Detectors

If you follow me on Facebook or on our Facebook group “all metal mode” you probably seen my post on Friday how impressed I was with Nathan Jaeger at Tesoro. Bob and I will have him on the show soon and there are some things I want you to hear from him so I’m not going to go into why it was such a great conversation. All I will say for now is he told me things about Tesoro machines that have me excited! If you’ve been in the hobby for even a short time you’ve heard of Tesoro. In…

Meet the Author – Mike Haer

I always loved history even from an early age. My favorite class in school was Ohio history. My brother got me into metal detecting a little over 20 years ago. Our first metal detectors weren’t much and I think we would have done better with pin pointers taped to sticks! We both quickly moved up to better machines. I started a metal detecting forum called “buckeye treasure hunter” for Ohio metal detecting. It was great and a lot of good things came out of it. I watched many friendships develop and witnessed people finding hunting partners through the forum and…
