Peter Schichtel and Joe Jorgensen were scheduled to be on the show last night but unfortunately they had to re-schedule and will be on this next week. We have some people we want to get on the show and Peter gave me plenty of notice but Bob and I thought it would be a good time to take a break from having a guest and take calls.
Josh Kimmel was our first caller and it was nice to have him on as always and he remained on the whole time. Josh has been instrumental in our success and without him we wouldn’t have a podcast. Josh has spent countless hours helping me troubleshoot issues and helping me get the show up and running, Bob and I appreciate him so much and all that he has done for us!
We discussed Tesoro metal detectors and how great they have been to Bob and I. Bob has the Tesoro Mojave and he just got it the other day. He has only had time to run out in his yard and run it over a few buried targets but he was really impressed. Why was he so impressed? A few of the targets are deeper and the Mojave hit on them good, some better than his Minelab CTX which was very surprising to him considering it is a 250 dollar metal detector! Bob will be out using it in the field soon and I am sure there will be some good articles/Reviews on the Tesoro Mojave soon.
I talked about the Outlaw that I have. Tesoro sent me one about 3 years ago in early spring to borrow and I quickly fell in love with it! Over the years I had tried to find a better relic metal detector that my Minelab E-trac. I had tried several well-known relic detectors but always went back to my Minelab E-trac UNTIL the Tesoro Outlaw. I found the Tesoro Outlaw able to handle the iron better than any other metal detector I’ve used and it will go deep! The Outlaw is also very light weight and simple. A lot of killer finds were made with the Tesoro Outlaw when I was relic hunting the month I was able to borrow it.
This time around I am in Texas and its summer with everything planted or grown up. I’ve been hunting with the Outlaw in parks and I am completely blown away how I can quickly have a good idea what the target is by turning the discrimination knob and tell the depth from how loud the tone is. I never contemplated using such a simple, one tone metal detector any other way than relic hunting and every time I get out with the Tesoro Outlaw I am just more impressed.
Brian Walsh from the First Capital Diggers Facebook group had a question about hunting an old wagon road through a piece of property. I asked him to call in and we had a discussion about metal detecting fields where things once were. It was great to hear from him and discuss field hunting which is what I did when I still lived in Ohio. I am going to add links to a few articles at the bottom here about how to find field sites and how to overlay.
Paul Vento asked in the chat “Are analog machine deeper than digital machines? Like Blisstool vs Minelab?” Well foolish me did tell people to ask any questions they may have but unfortunately we couldn’t answer this one but it is a question that is curious. I don’t know if it could really ever be answered because there are too many variables like coil size, KHz and I’m sure a number of different things.
That was pretty much everything. Was nice to have a short show being that Bob had a rough day and I am still sick!
