Forrest buried a handful of Cast items 4' down

RE: Forrest buried a handful of Cast items 4' down
What kind of metal detector do you have that can detect the TC at 8 feet depth? Have you actually tested this?

I'm not trying to argue - I'm genuinely curious because I believe I need something like this - if true, is it affordable?

My $700 metal detector has trouble detecting my truck when I wave it more than 2-3 feet away. Do I need a different coil?

he could not have did that in one afternoon,drive to spot make two trips then dig 6 feet,at 79 or 80,do you have a better explanation on how

At one time I thought it was 8' deep in an Indian burial cyst. I now actively seek out and exorcise my guesses.
JB, would a bronze box be detected in a cyst with a metal detector that deep?

There are lots of different metal detectors. I'm not sure you could detect a steel plate that was 100' across in both directions but only 6" deep with most/all metal detectors. But yeah. My metal detector is supposed to be able to pick up something like the chest at 8'. But I rather doubt he's done anything like this.
Thanks JB, I'm kind of ignorant on metal detectors. I know you have a lot of experience with them. I probably will never use one...Back problems.

I too am ignorant. I don't have a lot of experience with them. Take anything I say on the subject with a grain of salt. When I bought one nearly 4 years ago I did some research and talked to my pal who knows the laws of electricity and magnetism way better than me. I am no expert and barely knowledgeable on them. When I bought mine I gave it a bit of thought but it was kind of the minimum required.

With my back, I'll have to get my wife to do all the dirty work... Including how to use it. Thanks 5 girls, never thought of utubing it.
