I have enjoyed fishing and hunting all of my life, but we all go through unpredictable "changes of preference" in our hobbies, and, if somebody had told me 30 years ago that I would rather metal-detect than fish, I'd have called them a liar. I live amongst decent Civil War hunting areas, and that seems to be my "mainstay" hobby. I am a dealer for the phenomenal Tesoro brand of detector, but I don't sell many due to my other time-consuming passtimes(like my real job). I just wondered how many of you have detected. Rheumatoid Arthritis keeps me from doing ANYTHING as much as I used to, however.......Except for taking a drink or two of good liquor. Any detectors out there?
