clay

man, that tn clay is some tenacious stuff, if not vicious.  there is good action of all kinds in the creeks and rivers, and there was a lot of public access last time i was there in 2011.  most of the activity was always around the water, and there is gold, ducktown, coker creek....b

A word of wisdom If you have good places to hunt ,inviting many more only decreases your own finds and  and the outcome may not be so  good  things usally get out of control .A few with more beats many with little

Metal Detecting

I live in Tullahoma and was wondering if you still had permision to hunt the Hoover's Gap area and if they would allow metal detecting.

Memphis Treasure Hunters

The Memphis Metal Detecting Club has new leadership and we're looking for new recruits and new ideas. Glad you brought this up. I'll pass it along to the other hunters in the club. We're renewing our Buddy Hunting program and are planning to go out on club hunts at least once a month this year for the members and publishing more information and photos of the member's finds. Keep an eye on memphistreasure dot com in the future for news and pictures. The club has withered over the past few years but the new leadership and existing members want to build up the club again.Layn Huffman - VP MMDC

treasure story

Well for 2 days now me and T-H buddy have been hitting hard we did manage to find some good stuff 5 confederate flat buttons 6 mini pistol balls and a nice piece of cannon ball. And lots of square nails i used my new whites but i dont like it.It may be good for coin hunting. So i had to breakout the trusty TESORO CIBOLA and as all ways it works great. I did receive the new T-4000 but it was missing the upper shaft so i did not get to use it today. And we went and scouted out the creek with the treasure the young man told me about we will have to do some more investigating on that one.

i used to go to the one out of memphis, it was a good hunt held in missisippi at sardis lake. the one i'm talking about may be held by the same club but all the buried targets were relics and civil era coins. the info was posted last year either on thetreasuredepot.com or findmall.com. you could do a search there for old posts. hope this helps.

treasure story

I recently ran into a young fellow and we got to talking about metal detecting and he said something to me that really got my attention. He said he found in a creek a sword with a gold hilt and coins from the 1800s. And the only thing in my area that was lost would be the union payroll that was buried and lost before the battle of parkers cross roads. So im going to do a little digging and get him to take me where he found this stuff.

Ive watched all of the div videos and they look like they have lots of fun.I like CC Digger he seems to know where to hunt and he knows the DIV people to get one together.Me and my hunt buddy go around the parkerscross roads area and still find stuff left over from the civil war. there was a small skirmish that i have been trying to locate in my area with no luck so far but it goes with the battle of lexington,tenn. With Col.Ingersoll and General forrest. I have it narrowed down to a mile radius but most of the dirt back then is under 4 feet of sand and river debree. But im not giving up.

Good luck on that. I live in south central tenn. and have wondered the same thing. Almost have to be a member of a club to get in on the information. I know my little club out of lynchburg does not do much except get together and eat.Would love to go to a good outing and do some hunting.
