3 Essential Tools For Those Just Joining Us Hunting Relic & Treasure

In this post I thought I would put together 3 essential tool suggestions for those of you that are just wanting to join us hunting relic and treasure. There are a number of great places to purchase your gear, but I am going to suggest a really great shop that has won me over as a customer for life: New England Detectors

Essentials for those just wanting to join us on the hunt:

  1. Metal Detector- There are so many to choose from but if your just getting started I am going to suggest a really good low cost metal detector the Garrett Ace.  I started with a Bounty Hunter Quick Draw II and I still miss that metal detector.  But I think a good solid metal detector to begin with is the Garrett Ace.
    1. GARRETT ACE 150 $152.95 Garrett Ace 150
    2. GARRET ACE 250 WITH FREE LESCHE DIGGER $212.45 *Great BUY!Garret Ace 250 with FREE Lesche Digger
    3. GARRETT ACE 350- FREE LESCHE AND KNEE PADS $297.47 *Even a Better Buy!GARRETT ACE 350- FREE LESCHE AND KNEE PADS
  2. Digger-  Now you can start with any digger you can find but the best that is out there is the Lesche Digger.  If it is in your budget, get it, it will never let you down!
    1. WORLD FAMOUS LESCHE DIGGING KNIFE $34.5                                                           World Famous Lesche Digger

    2. Lesche Sampson Mini T handle Serrated 18″ $55.00 *This has really replaced my shovel it is wonderful!Lesche Sampson Mini T handle Serrated 18"

  3. Pin Pointer- Why a Pin Pointer you ask?  The pin pointer is a necessity as it saves you a great deal of time retrieving your target.  The more time saved means you can dig more targets in a day and find more great finds.  I really like the Garret Pin Pointer but there are some great alternatives now that just came on the scene.

    1. GARRETT PRO POINTER $127.45 *My FavoriteGARRETT PRO POINTER

    2. Minelab PRO FIND25 and FREE LESCHE $169.00 Special Promotion!Minelab PRO FIND25 and FREE LESCHE

These 3 essential tools will give you a more enjoyable hunt and you can add all the fun tools to your grizzly arsenal from there!  Let me know how you make out and join us in our Facebook Group and share your finds!
