MORE BOUNTY HUNTER FINDS
||One Happy Little
8 Year Old
have no hesitation giving recommendations to buy a Bounty
Hunter Fast Tracker as a first detector for a young
I just purchased a Fast Tracker for
my 8 year old daughter's birthday in February. It just
came in and I assembled it to see if it was working
okay and do have to say that it is very impressive.
I bought it from a friend, who is a dealer, and he was
surprised that Bounty Hunter products came with so many
features for the price.
We did a quick once over to make sure
all of the parts were there and assembled the unit.
It was a snap. The unit is so light that I don't think
that my daughter will have any problems handling it.
We then wanted to try out the discriminator.
I just finished putting on a new roof a couple of months
ago and found one of the nails in the yard. I then put
the detector in disc mode and went over the nail and
the unit was totally silent! This is impressive since
I own another detector that still gives me a broken
chatter in disc mode whenever I go over nails. The dual
tone discrimination will also make it easier for me
to teach her to pick out good targets. I would have
no hesitation at this point giving recommendations to
buy a Bounty Hunter Fast Tracker as a first detector
for a young child. I'm sure that my daughter will get
a lot of use out of hers.
Thanks for a great detector!

|"Thank you for a Quality
Product" - Fast Tracker
First, Thank You for a Quality Product (I own a Bounty
Hunter Fast Tracker). I own your competitors equipment
(priced comparatively) as well, although as I go out
the door, it’s your product that I find myself
reaching for. Attached is a photo of the secondary reason,
the primary being as my wife sums it up "going
out to play"? Need I say more.
||Stuart Rainford - Fast Tracker
Thought you might like to hear from one of your English
users. I have never owned a Bounty Hunter before, but
have known them around for a great many years. Recently
I decided to look for a light easy to use machine that
would not cost a great deal. Frankly I did not really
expect to find such a super detector - a Fast Tracker.
The detector was purchased for my wife who now accompanies
me on trips during the summer months. The key specifications
I needed for the machine were weight & price. I
looked at the models available in the £100-£150
price range. Time & again in looking the Fast Tracker
came out on top, there just wasn't anything else to
match. There were no other machines that offered the
following: Variable sensitivity & Discrimination
as well as tone ID. I was very impressed, even more
so when the unit actually arrived & I put it through
I have been a detector user since 1977 - continually
- & use some very sophisticated machines. But what
really takes me with the Tracker is its usability. No
weight to speak of, accurate discrimination, wonderful
tone ID. A great detector for younger folk, or those
needing a great backup machine. One of its excellent
features is the discrimination. This unit will cut iron
out - dead! It will not cut out desirable targets, its
tone is the key. By careful adjustment it becomes very
simple to ignore low tone silver paper without the loss
of small rings & other desirable items. A setting
of 10 o'clock on the disc is just right for me, at this
small rings still give high tone & silver paper
a low tone. Even if rings do give a low tone you can
still ID them by carefully listening & understanding
the audio response. This will put the operator in a
great position to identifying targets before they are
dug. Large positive signals like cans are easily identified
by raising the coil off the ground, coins etc quickly
disappear whilst cans etc. do not. Very useful in a
coinshooting area where large alloy junk abounds.
The first trip out was a site that we search on a regular
basis, its an industrial river foreshore. The whole
area is a mass of iron fragments and large pieces of
steel junk. It's the toughest site we have, but in amongst
this by very careful searching you can find coins from
the last couple of hundred years. My normal method with
my 'big' machine would be a six inch coil, you just
cannot use anything else. Your mind must pick through
the continuous rejected signals looking for those 'pips'
that might be non-ferrous. The Fast Tracker was in its
element, by the end of the two hour session I had recovered
25 coins from 1900 to present date, also a big pile
of fishing weights. This was a super example of just
how efficient the machine is, very, very impressive
on this hardest of all sites. And this was how things
were to continue on other places we visited.
Another area that I frequent is a local beach, and
many hours are spent there testing different units we
own. Straight out into the wet sand, no response to
the saturated salt conditions - excellent. After a couple
of hours the numbers of recovered coins was relatively
low, about 15, but this is quite normal using an expensive
machine not a budget example! My buddy was using such
a unit & there wasn't anything he detected that
I couldn't, & my discrimination was more accurate.
To operate on wet sand without any difficulty is something
rather special that other manufacturers should take
note of - especially on a machine that costs a fraction
of some of the others available that don't work there
Finally I took a deep breath & went to a field
that I have been searching constantly for many years.
In that time I have made some very good recoveries,
mostly coins from pre 1600. It is now very hard to get
much, but memories keep your patience on the field.
A section of the site has a very iron contaminated section
that's always hard to work, especially with the normal
large heads that we use for the rest of the site. I
reasoned that this might be the place to use the Fast
Tracker. Boy was I right! After three hours of intense
hard searching, a number of buttons, a fob seal &
small buckle, I found a hammered silver penny of Edward
I (1280's). It took me ages to find the coin in the
soil & grass, but the FT wouldn't let go. The small
coil is a super aid in this type of contaminated ground.
Right at the end of the day whilst idly walking back
to the vehicle, I got a rough but slightly positive
signal. Cutting a turf down to four inches, the signal
came much stronger & in the center of the hole was
a green point. Carefully digging around it out came
one of the best Roman brooches I've found pointing upwards!
chuffed - you bet!
I have really enjoyed using this machine & look
forward to my wife Caroline having as much fun as I
did, that's if she gets it back! I can only dream as
to what the more expensive models in the Bounty Hunter
range might be like, would sure like to try one. But
I can only say that it's impossible to be disappointed
with the Fast Tracker in any way at all. Its performance,
features & price are staggeringly brilliant...
A big congratulations to First Texas Products, you've
got a winner in the Fast Tracker!
||The best $100
I've ever spent. - Fast Tracker
Last May I purchased a Bounty Hunter
Fast Tracker metal detector because I always enjoyed
finding different old stuff just digging around in different
areas. I was immediately hooked! I was going out as
often as my schedule would allow me, and from then until
early November I found over 750 coins.
Most of them are clad, but I've gotten a couple indian
head pennies, about 40 or so wheat pennies, 1 silver
quarter, 2 mercury dimes, and a fair number of old nickels.
In addition to the coins, I've found numerous horseshoes,
a 1965 James Bond toy gun, one ring, and a few other
misc. pieces of jewelry.
Purchasing that detector was probably the best $100
I've ever spent. For Christmas I got a new Pioneer 202
(Quick Draw 2). I can't wait until the season's change
and I can get back out hopefully with even more success.
Anyone new to the hobby, DONT be shy to buy the Fast
Tracker, it's a great
machine for the money!! Thank you Bounty Hunter!
The find: a sterling silver opal
|Beginners Luck: A Great First
Day Find! - Land Star
The Land Star
is the first metal detector I've used and owned, and
as you can imagine, it was quite an experience to find
this ring on my very first day!
I purchased a Land Star for myself as a Christmas present.
On Monday, Jan 3rd, the temperature here in update NY
was in the sixties, so I decided to search a small park
where I live. Over the course of a couple of hours,
I found two quarters, three dimes, and 8 clad pennies,
all of relatively new dates. I finally decided to search
near the backstop of an old softball field in one corner
of the park. While searching in the "ALL METAL"
mode, I received a strong tone.
I was expecting to uncover a pulltab, but to my surprise
and delight, at a depth of about 4 inches, I found a
silver ring with a blue oval stone! The engraving inside
the ring says "Sterling Silver" and I've been
told that the stone is "Old Opal" although
at the time I believed that it was blue turquoise.
The Land Star is the first metal detector I've ever
used and owned, and as you can imagine, it was quite
an experience to find this ring on my very first day!
Thanks for making such a great product!
Sword waist plate
|Spring break fun with my Bounty
Hunter metal detector.
I had just found out about the site with an hour of
sunlight left to work with.
This sword waist plate was found at an old homesite
in North Texas with my Bounty Hunter metal detector.
It was found on the last day of a detecting trip I took
over spring break and I had just found out about the
site with an hour of sunlight left to work with. This
was the very first signal given off and I can't wait
to get back and see what else is out there!
Civil War reunion badge
|When you least expect it.
I was playing around looking for coins and such when
I found a Civil War reunion badge.
My name is J.R. Cheatham. I have a Bounty Hunter detector...I'm
kinda new to metal detecting. Mostly I've only found
coins and junk..nothing really exciting..but a couple
of days ago I was playing around looking for coins and
such when I found a Civil War reunion badge dated 1895.
It's a 29th reunion badge for the Grand Army of the
Republic. On the left side it says 1861, on the right
side it says 1866. Across the top it says 29.national.
In the middle, jumbled together are the letters GAR.
Around these letters it says encampment Louisville Ky.
I found it about 5 inches deep.
Proud owner of the Lone Star metal detector
|Bounty Hunter Lone Star
I bought my BH Lone Star with my own money!
I had a problem with my brand new coil. On Tuesday
January 18 my Dad took my coil and detector to Bounty
Hunter in El Paso. A man named Lupe helped him. My old
coil would not detect quarters for some reason. Lupe
fixed me up and gave me a brand new coil, and it works
great! I am 12 years old and I bought my BH Lone Star
with my own money. My Dad took me metal detecting a
few times and I found a lot of change and a gold earring.
I have only had it since Christmas. I mostly got money
for Christmas this year and I decided to buy my own
detector. I really like my Bounty Hunter especially
the tone ID. Thanks again and I really enjoy my new

George VI penny
|Who said school never pays off?
This was my first metal detector hunt,but it certainly
wont be my last!
I went to an old one room school with my uncle using
his Bounty Hunter metal detector and found my first
penny. It was very dry but the Bounty Hunter found the
large George VI penny at 3". This was my first
metal detector hunt, but it certainly wont be my last!!
Thanks for the great product,
Old money is still good money
|A little looking goes a long
Not bad for a couple hours of work.
I just thougt you should be the 1st to see what I dug
up yesterday with my Bounty hunter detector. On some
farm land across the street from where I live, my wifes
grandfather owned some land, where back in the 1800's
and early 1900's there was once an old train station.
Last year I tried hunting there and found 3 barber dimes,
(1897,1902 and 1907), and one 1936 quarter. I wanted
to go back for more, but the farmers had there bean
and wheat crops in and I didn't want to do any digging.
This past Monday a farmer friend of mine said the weather
took a toll on the crop so he was going to dig it all
up and I was welcome to give the detecting a shot. Yesterday
morning I walked across the street and started at 9am.
I quit at noon because of the hot weather, BUT this
is what I pulled out of the ground (2) standing liberty
quarters. The dates were worn off so I don't know what
year they were minted......(3) barber dimes, 1898 and
(2) 1899, (1) mercury dime 1940 and (2) V Nicholes 1900
and 1908. I also put the dimes and 1936 quarter I found
last year in there. Not bad for a few hours work.
||"My Wedding Band" -
I will be a recommender and customer for life!
To Whom It May Concern,
I wanted to thank you for putting a great product out
in the market. 3 weeks ago I was in my backyard doing
yard work with gloves on, I noticed after going inside
and taking off my gloves, my wedding band had fallen
off. Needless to say I was upset, and saw the disappointment
in my wife. I looked all over the yard with my hands,
and flashlight. Nothing after the first couple of days.
I started calling around to see if I could find metal
detectors, nobody seemed to sell them. I did some research
and saw that Target had one, I went purchased it, and
realized it was a "Kids version metal detector".
In any case I figured I'd give it a shot. After 1 week
and constantly going through the yard nothing came up,
and realized it was not that good. I returned it.
A week later I did some more research and noticed that
Dick's sporting goods actually sold the Bounty Hunter
metal detectors. I called up my local store and they
had 2 models, I chose the less expensive one. My wife
ended up picking it up. I used it in the front yard
and nothing came up, I started in the back and started
by doing my yard in sections. After I did half of the
back yard, still nothing, I was depressed and upset,
my wife had called me in for dinner. I said "I
be right there, give me 3 more minutes". I started
scanning towards the base of my deck and I got a beep,
I got quickly excited, I started putting it down off
to the side and then it beeped again. I check the first
area and nothing, but started digging around the second
area where it beeped and I saw something metal, I dug
a little more and it was my wedding band. I could not
believe it! I was ecstatic as you can imagine. I want
to say thanks for putting out a great product. Will
be a recommender and customer for life!

|Quite the attention grabber -
Sharp Shooter II
I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for such
a wonderful machine as a Sharp Shooter II. It has drawn
alot of attention at my local club. Especially last
week when I found a Charles the 1st shilling dating
back too the English Civil War. I intend to purchess
one of your ten inch coil's in the near future. Once
again may I thank you for a wonderful machine.
Hobo Valley treasure
|Held up a nice 1918 Canadian
Quarter - Discovery 3000
see the look of satisfaction on my face, she finally
realized why I loved detecting and my Bounty Hunter.
It was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon.
After a pleasantly filling meal my wife decided we should
go for a walk. I casually suggested we take a walk through
the bush trail at the end of our street called Hobo
Valley. I also mentioned that I would take my Discovery
3000 along to see what I could find.
My wife and 4 year old wandered along
ahead while I hunted in the bush along the path. I hit
a good signal and was preparing to cut the plug when
my wife came back to check on me. "Have you found
anything?" she asked. "Well there is definately
something here." I replied. After digging the plug
and waving a handfull of dirt in front of the coil and
hearing that sweet signal again I saw the gleam of silver.
I could see that she was anxious to see what it was
and I then held up a nice 1918 Canadian quarter.
To see the look of satisfaction on my
face she finally realized why I loved detecting and
my Bounty Hunter. The 1912 dime a couple of feet away
was the icing on the cake and the other silver quarter
a bonus. Thank you Bounty Hunter for a great product.

A $7,500 twenty old 1 Ct. center stone ring!!!
On March 9th. 2002, I purchased a Bounty Hunter 'Pioneer
101', (Tracker IV) metal detector, while attending a
local electronics show here in Charlotte, NC. A bit
of history about my metal detecting experience. Over
the years I have owned several metal detectors, including
top of the line 'White's', 'Compass' and 'Garrett' detectors.
I've panned, suctioned dredged and dry sluiced the desert.
I recently had several heart attacks and knew I should
be exercising more (as the doctor had said), but procrastinating,
as I will do, I pushed it to the back of my mind. As
I walked the isles of the show, I noticed a rather shop
worn box containing a Pioneer 101 metal detector and
since the price was right, I purchased it.
I figured what the heck, possibly I'll get out and
try it again. Over my years of metal detecting I did
recover several nice objects, but nothing of any consequence
that I would really get excited about. The detectors
were always difficult to tune, hard to adjust the discrimination
switches (they really never worked quite right) and
took a considerable amount of time to acquaint one's
self to each detectors particular adjustments. Now I'll
get to the point.
I assembled the Pioneer 101 and didn't actually expect
too much from an 'inexpensive detector' after years
of $1,000 devices which worked marginally at best. I
drove to a nearby park and started my old sweeping technique.
To my surprise after only a few feet of sweeping, I
got a positive reading and retrieved a fairly current
dime (about 4" down), a few more feet and it was
a quarter (6" down). Now remember, this was the
first time I had used this detector.
My next stop was at the base of a huge old oak tree
(there are plenty of those in the Carolinas), sweeping
the base of the tree, with the settings specified in
the little 15 page booklet for 'jewelry hunting', I
got a fairly strong signal. I've always used my trusty
screwdriver method of probing, so 'a-probing' I went.
I use a 12" screwdriver and had probed the coil
center down to the full 12" depth but felt nothing
and was about to give up and attribute the signal to
the old false reading, which I knew only too well.
OK, a couple of more tries and I would continue elsewhere.
Bingo, I hit something and broke out the mini trowel.
I had dug down about 6" when I saw a glint of metal
and realized it was a ring with what looked like three
diamond like stones. I always carry a digital camera
in the car now (accidents do happen). Enclosed is a
photo of what I recovered, the ring was appraised at
$7,500, it contains a 1 Ct. center stone and two side
stones, each ¾ Ct. set in 14kt. Gold (photo attached).
The jeweler said the ring was no more than twenty years
old (judging by the setting) and how it got down to
a 6" depth level is anyone's guess. My wife now
has a beautiful new ring and says I can visit electronic
shows and do all the metal detecting I desire. I want
to thank you for building a fantastic piece of detecting
equipment, which surprised the heck out of me. Just
as soon as I can afford to upgrade to one of your detectors
that is easier for me read (display) you can bet I'll
be out there purchasing one. Thanks again.
1 1/2 Carat Marquise Diamond Ring
|Detecting after 4th of July Celebration
- Sharpshooter II
"I Quickly Found What They Were Looking For...."
You are not going to believe this story...........I
was metal detecting on July 5 th ..the day after the
4th of July Celebrations....The place I detect was going
to have a fireworks spectacular. I new from last year
that the day after the celebrations the finds would
be nice. So I scheduled one of my weeks vacation for
that week. I did pretty good in the morning on the 5th
and netted about 20 bucks in coins...no jewelry though....I
went back in the later afternoon and as I walked westerly
I found some neat things but no jewelry. As I approached
the lifeguards chair an employee asked to talked to
me. He said that the couple over there lost a ring last
night and are looking for it. If you are interested
in a reward go on over there. I said ok and proceeded
to walk on over. I said, hello, I hear you lost something
and could use some help. Yes, the husband said, my wife
shook her pants out last night and her ring fell out
of the pocket.He was using a borrowed metal detector
and I could see he was not familiar with it at all.
I asked, approximately where were you and when you shook
your pants and she stood at the same place and did a
shaking motion with her hands. I quickly ran my Sharp
Shooter 2 under the area but no signal. I did a sweep
of the area and found some coins but no ring. I found
I was getting interference from his detector and told
him what was happening and he backed off a short distance
away. The interference disappeared and I continued to
sweep the area finding coins but no ring. I figured
the wife had shook the pants with some force and the
ring must have sailed a good distance away , so I swept
a large diameter around her but still no ring. I again
asked how she shook the pants and was told that she
had just gently shook the jeans and I figured the ring
must be within a few feet of where she stood. With the
husbands detector not causing any interference I quickly
found what they were looking for ...an engagement ring
that was a 1 1/2 carat marquise diamond worth 10,000
dollars. I was totally floored and could not believe
my eyes. Had I found that in the morning it would have
been mine but with them there searching for it I was
only helping in there search and could not keep the
ring for myself. I was offered a reward but declined
at first but later I changed my mind and asked what
kind of a reward are we talking? The husband said, Here
take this," and hands me a handful of cash. He
says its 300 dollars, is it enough? I said :"Sure
", and thank you very much. I wasn't going to take
anything but that night my wife and I were to go on
a mini vacation and we could use the extra cash. We
left for Atlantic City, NJ at about 1:00 am to use some
of the coins I had found during the year and figuring
I was on a winning streak because of finding this ring
and the other gents 5 diamond ring I had written to
you about previously. I did not come home a winner from
Atlantic City but I knew I was no loser having helped
out that couple on the beach. I took a pic of the ring
and have added it to this email.It was a huge stone
...I don't know how I could ever top this find..Thanks
for rebuilding my detector ..it works great and could
not be happier with it. P.S. I brought the detector
with us to Jersey so I could detect in the morning while
my wife slept. I found a lot of coins and had a lot
of fun at the slots AND on the beach with my Sharp Shooter,.....where
I knew I would not lose.

|"What A Gift" - Tracker
My wife, Janet gave me a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV metal
detector for my birthday about four years ago
My wife, Janet gave me a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV metal
detector for my birthday, about four years ago. Now,
Janet just loves it when I say, "I'm going metal
detecting I may find another "goodie" for
her”. The enclosed photos are some of the rings,
and religious pieces that I’ve found. Many of
the rings are, Sterling Silver, two are Black hills
Gold, while, two others, are 14K gold. One 14K gold
ring has a 1/3rd Caret diamond, which was appraised
at $1,000. I’ve also found many, many coins. Quite
a few Wheat Pennies, Silver dimes, quarters, and even
one Silver half dollar.
I am totally satisfied with both of my Tracker IV Machines.
I have two of them one for each car. That way I'm never
out and about without having a machine with me. I would
suggest to anyone who wants to get into the metal detecting
fun, that they buy a Bounty Hunter Tracker IV!!!!
Of course, I'm sure that all models of Bounty Hunter
are of the same quality that is installed in the Tracker
IV's that I have. I'm just a little amazed because of
the great success I have had with my Tracker IV machines.
Thank you Bounty Hunter.
Canadian fifty cent pieces
|A great traveling companion.
- Land Star
I bought my Land Star this past spring. It went with
me across Canada from Ontario to the Yukon and the North
Attached is a photo of two fifty cent pieces, a 1942
and a 1943. The '42, I found in the yard of an old school
about four inches deep in clay and was in perfect condition
under a thick tree root. The '43, was recovered about
six inches deep near the beach in a park that dates
back to the last century. It was so encrusted with sand
that it was a couple of days before I could determine
the date. Some of it still remains as it is extremely
difficult to remove and I don't want to damage the coin.
Thank you Bounty Hunter!
10K Gold Ring with a Black Onyx Stone
The Dependability of the Tracker IV
I spent the entire past Winter of 2007 and 2008 in
Arizona. I returned to Colorado on April13th, 2008.
My Tracker IV sat idle for over five months. I had the
opportunity to go detecting for about 30 Minutes on
the first Wednesday after I returned to Colorado. I
put in a set of new batteries and my Tracker IV was
up and running like it always does. It is a very dependable
I went to a sandy playground that is in a large park.
I had only been detecting for about 10 minutes when
the “gold” tone sound on my machine alerted
me to something positive. I dug about seven inches in
the sand and much to my delight, out came this 10K gold
mans ring with a black onyx stone in it.
As I age, ( I am now 74 years old ) I realize how lucky
I was that my wife bougth the Tracker IV for me. It
has been a very productive machine over the years. Thank
you once again Bounty Hunter for the great machines
you produce. Thanks to my wife too......
||Hunt and ye shall find... - Land
I wonder how many times I had stepped over the coin
while cutting the grass during my youth.
I am writing to thank you for making possible a most
interesting experience. Upon learning that we have had
a Civil War campground close to my childhood home I
had the desire to check it out.
A little over a week ago I recieved my Land Ranger
after ordering it from Cabelas magazine. I got to try
it out for a few minutes while waiting to pick up my
daughter from our church's Christmas Eve service practice.
I checked the clothes line behind the exsisting church
parsonage, where incidently, I lived while my father
was the minister several years ago. My first find was
an old drinking cup. A few minutes later I had a solid
coin signal. I was expecting to find a coin from my
youth. Instead I unearthed an 1865 German coin that
had been lying there the whole time I lived there in
the 1970's. I wonder how many times I had stepped over
it cutting the grass during my youth.
All this took place during my first ten minutes of
searching. Unfortunately, I had to stop to get home
to help my wife get ready for evening guests. Even my
daughters pleading could not get us to stay longer.
I fear I may have used up all my beginners luck in the
first ten minutes. As you can imagine I can hardly wait
to get back this Christmas weekend to see what else
may be waiting to be discovered. Mabey nothing, mabey
I just found the beginning. Only time will tell.
I hope my luck hasn't run out. Thanks for the great
product. My daughter and I will get many years of enjoyment
from it, if the first ten minutes is any indication.
I still haven't had a chance to get to the civil war

|Out Treasure Hunting! Tracker
My husband's birthday.
Hello Bounty Hunter Metal Detectors,
I purchased the Tracker IV for my husband’s birthday,
even though I thought he would not find anything but
old nails and junk. Our home sets where an old barn
used to be years ago. The very first day he, and our
son had it out treasure hunting in the woods near our
home, they found an antique gun. This gun was discontinued
prior to 1942. Even though the gun is not valuable on
any market, it is their treasure.
The cannonball Peter found
Only half of the rings Peter found.
|Irish Battle of Kilsdale - Quick
All of these were found with my Bounty Hunter Quick
Draw II. These machines will not pass a coin at any
depth! Some of my friends are amazed at what I found.
This is a cannon ball that was used in 1690, in the
battle of Zac, which is a very beautiful seaside resort
20 miles outside Cork City where I live. I was searching
a field just at the back of a place called Fort Charles
which was being held by a Catholic British regiment
and was being shelled by a French Armada, so I guess
this cannon ball must have missed the fort and landed
in a field behind the fort. The 4 little balls are musket
balls fired from a handgun.
The next photo is of very old coins dating from the
year 1500 to the present. This is only 1/2 of the rings
that I found as my relations took some of them every
time we had a visit. I also found a good few watches.
Some were under water and still in working order.

|I WAS GOING TO GO FISHING
My Tracker IV has been a very dependable machine ever
since I bought it.
I WAS GOING TO GO FISHING
I was going to go brown trout fishing on Tuesday, October
18, 2005. Then I remembered I had a meeting at 7:00
o'clock that evening and didn’t trust myself to
get back home in time, so, I went metal detecting instead.
I decided to go to a park, in which I hadn’t detected
for quite sometime. I have total confidence in my Tracker
IV. It has been a very dependable machine ever since
I bought it. It has paid for itself several times over
with all the coins and other items I have found. That
particular Tuesday was no different. I was at the park
for about two and a half hours and in addition to the
$7.39 I found in change, I found this sterling silver
ring with a tanzanite like stone in it. Considering
the cold winters we have in Colorado, coupled with the
nice warm Summer days, heavy items such as this ring
settle into the ground quite quickly, because of the
freezing and thawing effect. I believe Bounty Hunter
takes this fact into consideration when they engineer
their machines. This ring was over three inches below
the surface, and my Tracker IV located it with no problem.
I cannot thank Bounty Hunter enough for the wonderful
products they produce. My Tracker IV has given me many,
many hours of "happy hunting". All the rings
I have found have also kept me in good graces with my
wife. She, of course, was happy to get this one too.
I remain a dedicated Bounty Hunter Tracker IV user.

of Hurricane Gordon with 20 to 50 mile hour winds and
detecting on a seeded coined beach in ankle deep water.
I was asked what kind of metal detector I was going
to use and I told them Bounty Hunter. The reactions
i got were comments like "I'm using a childs toy!"
and "I will only find lots of trash like pull tabs
and not very many coins & relics, unless I go out
and get a better detector!" But I was not discouraged
at what was said. After the 1hr hunt was over, I went
home with lots of silver(9 mercury dimes,6 Roosevelt
dimes,3 Washington Quarters, and 3 Franklin 1/2 dollars!)
I also found a low prize token to bring home my very
1st Silver Round! Some of the people that made those
comments came back to tell me that they saw how fast
I was finding coins and that impressed them. One even
told me how I was killing him on how fast my detector
was finding the coins. That gave me a big ego!!

|It's so light I can swing it
for hours - Tracker IV
Dear Bounty Hunter,
Being a former police officer from the New England
area, I recently received a call from a buddy of mine
who had gone into the security business. Knowing fully
well that I was an avid treasure hunter he offered me
a chance to fly up for the job of a life time. Basically
outside of Boston there were some previously undisturbed
colonial sights that were now going to be flattened
for the construction condos. It was a two week assignment,
where I would work from 12PM to 6AM and had complete
runoff the area. It was very well lit and extremely
My two assignments were to keep people out and treasure
hunt all that I wanted to. There was a small dwelling
on the edge of the property that was constructed in
the 1700's, aside from that there were a couple of barns
and an old mill. I detected 6 hours a night with my
Tracker IV in the tone mode, all I cared about was coins
and for two weeks straight found nothing. I own several
machines but when I fly I have developed a way of fitting
my Tracker IV in my overhead bag and it's so light I
can swing it for hours. I had several low tones and
dug one relic after another. The only problem was I
didn't care about relics, All I wanted to do was get
one colonial coin and I would be happy.
One morning a bulldozer showed up to flatten the dwelling.
I grabbed my detector and followed it around for 2 hours
as it demolished the building and turned it's remains
into dust. All of a sudden I got a loud and clear high
pitched tone!!! I began to dig the ground up with my
bare hands and guess what? I got one! This one coin
and two weeks salary made the trip an incredible event.
I have since sent the coin to an independent grader/slobber.
Before I did so I took a picture so that people can
see what is possible with a $150.00 machine.

Howdy there to all, Terry Bloomfield here from Silverton
Western NSW AUSTRALIA. Well what can I say… I
have just purchased a Tracker 4 and the goodies started
turning up straight away… I used to use a Garrett
Gold Scorpion, which, I still have but because of the
high mineralisation out here in the desert the Garrett
wont play the game. Enter the Tracker 4 and what an
impressive machine for the bucks. I have found some
very old coins… (1920 pennies) one of which is
worth quite a few dollars. Also, a gold religious medallion
and some very old tokens. So if there is anyone out
there wondering which detector to purchase for the first
time or as your main detector ...give the Tracker 4
a trial and you wont be disappointed. The headphones
are a must and the tone search mode makes life easy
as you wont be digging trash all the time...I have been

I was pleased when we got a nice break in the weather,
and I was off and running with my Trusty Tracker IV.
Having been in the doldrums because the weather has
been too cold to metal detect here in Colorado, I was
pleased when we got a nice break in the weather, and
I was off and running with my trusty Tracker IV. All
the snow had melted, and I had several places I thought
might be good hunting. I decided to go to an off- the-
beaten- path park. It turned out to be a good decision.
I got many good solid positive tones that day. I not
only found $6.78, but under some leaves, I found this
very pretty Cubic Zirconia .925 Silver ring. I feel
certain that my Tracker IV has MANY more good finds
in it. Thank you again Bounty Hunter.

I just had to write you to tell you how pleased I am
with my Quick Draw II. It was given to me as a birthday
gift and I must admit that it is possibly the best gift
I've ever received! It is really easy to use and has
given me hours and hours of pleasure.
I've found hundreds of silver coins, over sixty silver
rings, more than a dozen gold rings and quite a large
assortment of other types of jewelry. I can honestly
say that I've never come home empty handed.
This week was the best ever! On Sunday I hunted a local
park and after only an hour I found a 24K - 5.4 gram
solid gold ring! I'd never found anything 24K before
so you can imagine how excited I was.
This evening, I thought I'd get out for a quick hunt
before dinner and went back to the same park. Forty-five
minutes later, I could hardly believe my eyes as I held
in my hand another 24K gold ring. This one was even
heavier than the first at 8.0 grams!

I purchased my bounty hunter (Pioneer 202) for a very
unique problem, you see I own a self-storage facility
and last fall one of my tenants who is roofing contractor
spilled some copper nails around my gravel driveway.
This created a problem because my magnet that I usually
walk around with would not pick these items up and since
several weeks had passed before I saw these nails most
had worked their way into the gravel and you couldn't
see them. This is were my pioneer 202 came in handy
to detect them in all metals mode and in the process
I found several dollars in clad coins and these two
rings one was all bent and deformed from being run over
by a car but the other one has a stamp on inside that
reads 925 SC, I hope that means its 92.5 % silver but
am not sure. I purchased my detector to solve a problem
at my business and no have found a fun new hobby.

|Looking for whatever I can find!!
- Quick Draw II
"I ran to my mother with great excitement to show
her the coolest item I've found so far"
In the last week of August in 2002, my family and me
went to the Utah Flaming Gorge Lake Mustang Ridge campground.
There is a small bay to park your boat and to swim with
a big sandy beach.
In between meals I would spend hours detecting with
my Quick Draw II looking for whatever I can find. The
first day in the afternoon I found some crusted pennies,
pull tabs, and a black color steel toe ring or child’s
ring with a hearts design on it. The second day I found
a silver toe ring with ocean waves design and a silver
ring along with some change.
The third day was the biggest day for me detecting.
My detector sounded off that a 1 cent or dime is in
the ground, so I dug and saw a copper looking circle
popped out and immediately I knew it was a ring, so
I started wiping the damp sand off it and I saw a black
jewel on it, I started thinking it was a child’s
play ring with a plastic jewel on it. I went to the
water to finish cleaning it off and my heart skipped
a beat and I found out it was a high school ring. I
ran to my mother with great excitement to show her the
coolest item I've found so far. So during that day I
pulled up a modern Navaho ring with turquoise triangles
and a copper ring that had a gold plating on it with
a few scratches of gold left on it, also with me more
change. Most of the time I spent pulling up old pop
and beer cans along with pull tabs and fishing lures.
The water was 35 feet down. My dad said that I should
be detecting up were the water used to be, but by the
water I found great treasures.
My batteries died and I could not continue detecting
so I went home with over $4 in change a Hot wheels Jeep,
and six wonderful rings. THANK YOU BOUNTY HUNTER FOR
A GREAT DETECTOR!

I found this Rouge Compact on Jan 3 in an old road
bed in my back yard. The road use was discontinued about
60 years ago. I located it with my Bounty Hunter Quick
Draw II that my wife gave me for Christmas. It indicated
the object as a half dollar, 8 inches deep, which was
where it was and about the same size. On the back it
stated, 'Plough's Black and White Beauty Creations,
Made in USA', the inside had the remaining fragments
of a mirror and what appeared to be gold plated copper.
This was only the secound time I had used the Quick

me proud and my uncle green with envy because he had
not found anything like it with his "other brand"
detector that he has used for several years.

|Bounty Hunter Has Made History
Come To Life For Me - Pioneer 202
Now It's Your Turn To Find Your Own Piece Of History!
In the early part of April of this year I purchased
a Pioneer 202. Having never detected before, I was very
unsure of what to do, where to go and what the Pioneer
would do. The manual that came with the Pioneer was
very easy to understand for someone that had never done
this before. I like the Pioneer because it can be a
turn on and go or you can fine-tune your Pioneer to
discriminate between trash or treasure very easily.
It really is a turn on and go machine for a rookie or
a veteran detectorist. The quality and ease of operation
and of course the price cannot be beat anywhere, plus
the 5-year warranty is great also. As I stated earlier,
I have just started to detect this spring and my luck
has been out of this world, I would never had expected
this many great finds in such a short of time. Locations
of my hunts, such as ghost towns from the mid 1850’s
have really helped in the quality and quantity of my
finds. Research is the first step in good places to
hunt, then getting permission to hunt. Then you can
do the easy part of putting coins and relics in your
pockets. My Clad total for 3 months is about $ 60.00
that may not seem like much but this total is from trying
to learn my Pioneer very early in the spring in preparation
for the older spots that I had planned to hunt this
summer. So far my silver finds have been, (3) V nickels,
(2) Indian head nickels, (10) Barber Dimes, (1) 1906
Canadian Dime, (2) Seated Dimes, (5) Mercury Dimes,
(4) Barber Quarters, (1) Seated Quarter, (1) Barber
Half, (1) Franklin Half, (2) Morgan Dollars, (1) Mexican
Peso, (13) Pre 1970 Quarters, (30) Pre 1970 Dimes, (11)
Indian head pennies, (1) 1952 Canadian penny, and (53)
Wheat pennies. I also have found a bag of sugar that
was hidden in a metal lid box in the ceiling of my GGG
uncles' house. The date on the 10 lb. bag says that
it was made in 1836 in San Francisco, CA by Sea Island.
I have also found 4 rings for my wife, which makes her
as happy to get them from me as it was for me to find
them. This is only a partial listing of my finds but
you will get a good idea how exciting and rewarding
this hobby really is. If you try this hobby once I think
that you will be hooked for life. Bounty Hunter has
made history come to life for me, now it is your turn
to find your own piece of history.

Edward I, penny from the 1300's
|"I had a Winner in the Land
The deepest coin sized item I found wan as Edward I
penny from the 1300's at 8" in old grassland.
Its a little over a year since I bought the Landranger
detector, I made this decision because I was so totally
impressed with the Fast Tracker that I purchased for
my wife. I was not disappointed in any way with the
Landranger either. One of the most frequent places that
I detect on is a river that has seen much use over the
last couple of hundred years, the only problem with
this site is that the ampount of iron is absolutely
unbeleiveable. With this in mind I also received the
4" coil as well as the 10" & 8" ones.
Its almost impossible to use anything bigger than 6"
in this type of ground. I did have good sucess with
the FT in this area in the past so it was time to take
out the Landranger for a real showdown. Its a huge area
to work, but you are resricted by the tides and also
any areas that have been scoured off to the stony iron
layer. I ran the LR with half sens and as little iron
disc that I could get away with. I was surprised that
I could run the sens much higher, the little coil was
doing its job, and very well. By seacrhing slowly and
methodically I began to find some non-ferrous items,
mostly small bits of lead & some brass screws. Within
15 minutes I was on some coins at last, a couple of
small cupro nickel sixpences from the 1950's. These
are very hard targets to find in this sort of ground.
From that point on I knew that I had a winner in the
LR. After slowly searching for a further two hours &
hunting very slowly I had managed about 15 coins. One
was a silver sixpence from 1910, the rest copper and
mostly small ones, this is because all the big stuff
has been lifted in the past & even the tide cannot
help. After a few more trips down to the river with
the little 'killer' coil I was doubly impressed, it
just kept finding! Using the 10" in fields was
also a joy. The audio discrim was excellent and the
numerical ID very accurate. The deepest coin sized item
I found was an Edward I penny from the 1300's at 8"
in old grassland. Thanks to First Texas for producing
a first rate machine. I would not hesitate to recommend
their units to beginner or advanced user alike.

Land Star Find - Thanks Bounty
A large 14K gold ring with a 1 to 11/2
carat diamond set in the center.
I was swinging my 4" coil on my
Land Star (Power at 3/4 full, notch mode, disc/notch
set to the 10 O'clock position). I got a strong reading
that jumped from the iron nickle range to the penny
quarter range and decided to dig. About an inch down
I felt metal touch the end of my screwdriver and gave
the dirt a flip. I could see in the hole a gold band
and my heart gave a leap. I did not want to get my hopes
up as so many beer screw lids look the same color in
the dirt. But much to my satisfaction I found a large
14K gold ring with a 1 to 1 1/2 carat diamond set in
the center. I brushed the dirt from the inside of the
band to look for any initials or a name to show who
the owner might be, and there was not one. I let out
a small yelp of joy! Its MINE! I could not contain the
grins as I continued to load up coins in my pouch. The
funny thing about this find was a neighbor hood boy
walked over and asked if I ever find anything good.
I showed him the ring and his jaw just dropped. He said
that another guy was just here yesterday and he was
using a larger coil on what he described as a White's
unit. Ha ha ha Bounty Hunter takes the prize again.

Metal Detecting - Tracker IV
Thank you again Bounty Hunter for your very reliable
On September 23, 2006, my wife left for a semi-annual
vacation to visit her daughter and grandson. She wasn’t
gone an hour when I left with my Tracker IV to see what
I could find. It was a very cool day with off and on
rain showers. I decided to go to an area where there
are generally quite a few people. Because of the weather,
I didn’t think there would be too many people
out and about. I was not disappointed. When I arrived
in the area, I was the only person there. I detected
for about an hour and found a little over $5.00 in change.
I was ready to leave when I noticed a sandy volley ball
court. I went to the left side of the net and found
several more coins. On the right side of the net, I
took about 6 swings with my trusty Tracker IV and heard
that “ Gold Sounding Tone ” the Tracker
IV makes. I was pleasantly surprised when I uncovered
this 14K Gold ring with three small diamonds in it.
I then surprised my wife by mailing the ring to her
at her daughter’s house. It fit her just right.
Once again the Bounty Hunter Tracker IV has proven
it’s worth to me.

I recently got my Land Star after looking at a lot
of different detectors and after the weather cooperated
finally got to try it out. We stopped at a small area
where spelunkers park is located to access a local cave,
I thought it would be a good place to check the discrimination
due to the high concentration of pull tabs. After digging
a few tabs to check the readout, I got a strong high
tone and quarter readout. I found the necklace just
under the grass (0 to2 depth).The clasp was open but
the pendants were still on the chain.

I had my Tracker IV out for the first time and
to the pool I went, and I didn't have really no hope
I was going to find my class ring. So my son & I
hadn't searched an area no longer than 25' by 10' until
we had already found 2 quarters & 3 dimes, and then
it beeped and low and behold 6" or maybe a little
further under the groundI cut the grass layer off and
began to layer away the dirt checking every little bit
to make sure the beeper was still below where I was
scraping,then it rolled over, my class ring. I was,
well I couldn't explain it to you, except I was one
happy fellow that day thanks to the Bounty Hunter Tracker
