Crossbow fibula + getting used to Deus II

It looks better in real life lol. Someone looked it up and said it’s military brooch from 3rd century. Cool. Never thought I’d find something like this, cos i usually don’t even find the ordinary ones. Now I found an ordinary one just yesterday on a place that’s apparently also Roman, judging by the roof tiles and holes from other hunters.

Found some stuff lying next to the spot where you can park. I’ve been claiming they should put parking spots in the fields for us, because I hardly can ever park near a field and walking 10mins to do some tiresome hobby isn’t for me. So TADA, there it was: a concrete strip suitable for at least 2 vehicles. Coming back to the car, i saw a pigeon ring and huge flat coin lying which i took home. The coin turned out to be 2 sols of 150yr old from France. Almost totally gone, pity.

I have been wanting to scout new fields to get a bit more result in the silver/cool section. Yes, I know I had lots of gold and Roman and stuff around the NEw Year.. But then it slowed down big time. I got the new Deus II on top of it, and after 6 days I finally got rid of the feeling that it found near to nothing.

First, I turned it on and immediately installed my settings from my Deus I, based on Hot program. Way too much noise. After 2 days, I did some tests with silver/gold in polluted ground, slowed it down, turned the disc back to 7 instead of -6. Apparently the -6 disc isn’t helping, it’s masking the good target ! Although I didn’t feel like I was finding less with it on the old Deus lately from now on I won’t turn the disc to under zero.

Then I watched some British guy on youtube explaining all the settings in a 25-min long monologue, which took me DAYS to complete, because I just don’t have the attention span for it. So I started again, this time just with Program 1, trying to get the ground grab to work, which doesn’t work as usual, and there is no manual GB anymore :/ Still, the thing got quiet AND started finding deeper targets yesterday, FINALLY !! I was so depressed that I got my old deus out yesterday before I took the new one again. Maybe it’s because most fields are now so damn wet. THe air humidity is 93%. Everything is wet and cold. The last field I took on with the Deus II has been ploughed a while ago and seems a bit more manageable (flatter) and dryer, so maybe it really makes a lot of difference.

Still, I need to find more places to hang out because now we only have the green fields which are forbidden, and the roughly ploughed ones, where you can’t find much.
