The day of 2 Ts
Quote this message in a reply
I had the whole day to myself yesterday.  That doesn't happen often.  I got out early.  Took the TDI to my favorite old stomping grounds.  I ran this thing in dig all mode for a while.  That is fun.  You pretty much have no idea what you are digging.  After a while I went into a little wooded area that I have not touched before.  Went into cherry pick mode and wham.  I dug wheatie, silver, wheatie all in a row in about a three foot area.  I was thinking WOW this could be virgin ground.  I hunted around there a little more,but not finding much and I was being eaten alive by the mageeta.  I had to get out of there.  Went back to swingin in the grass a little then went home to soak myself in off and grab a bite and the old T2.  I figured I would get right back to that trashy woods spot with the laser beam coil.  By this time I was pretty tired and wasn't in much of a dig it all mood.  I was even ignoring most of the pulltab hits.  Nothing great this time.  This was the first I got to use the new TRX also.  I should have said 3 Ts.  My rarest find of the day was the silver Rosie.  That is only the second of those I have dug.  I've dug more mercs and more Washingtons than rosies.   I think the TDI may be winning favorites over the T2.  I'm starting to hate looking at all the jumpy crap on the screen.  Here's a couple pics of the days digs.  The one with the silver is TDI finds.  The other is T2 finds.  Any guesses on what the big toothy looking iron piece is?

I missed this, Will! You're kicking ass with the TDI!!! I think it fits your personality like a glove, as you're more of a 'dig it all' kinda guy. In the long run, you'll find a LOT more than us cherry pickers Wink

Yeah Joe.  I really like this machine.  Even when it's set to hear everything, I'm starting to hear differences in the tones.  Sometimes I can guess what it is.  More time and I will get even better at it.  I do like diggin junk.

Congrats on the rosie Will. And a whole bunch of other interesting stuff as well. I'm a "Picker" too. I just don't have time to dig every tone. Only the real questionable ones. Bugs are great aren't they? Last Sunday after about 3 hours of rain, and doing the Deep Woods bath as you did, I still had to don my mosquito head net so I could breathe without inhaling a bug. And I still got bit about 3 times in all the little places I missed.

I really like doing the woods. Just me and the trees. Find a lot of shotgun brass. I have a link to shotgun shell Mfg. history if you ever need it.

After the first bug attack the other day I took 2 Benadryl that I had in my pocket.  That helped with the itch.  All the bullets and the shot shell I dug in the grassy area.  I always find bullets there.  That shell was shallow too.  It was a screaming high tone on the TDI.  High tone is low conductor, low tone is high conductor.  Opposite of vlf detectors.  I didn't even clean that shell yet to see what it says.  Maybe I'll do that tonight.

I'm going to try that Benadryl approach. On my SE I have it set now so that high conductive sounds like falling shattered glass. It's the only way I can distinguish the difference between all the sounds with my hearing.

I cleaned that shell up a little.  I can tell it says Peters.  Looks like it might say 14?  And it looks like it's filled with iron.

Can't read it this end. It's Hi Brass. If it's a Peters there are a lot of them. Check page 2 as well. I've found so many over the short time I've hunted the woods. Here's that reference:
http://members.shaw.ca/cartridge-corner/shotgun.htm

All I've ever found have been the paper or rather cardboard case, which, like yours, has rotted away to leave the brass base. I await the day that I find the old reloadable full brass cases. That would be something. I know that when I did weekend skeet in PA years ago, we scrounged the ground for our empties so we could reload them. Now there all hi impact plastic cases. Found a few of those as well.
