Re: New to Detecting

The Middle Tennessee Treasure Hunters Club was founded in 1971 by a small group of metal-detector enthusiasts. In 1983 the club changed its name to the Middle Tennessee Historical Research Association (MTHRA) in order to reflect the broader historical interests of many club members. We have now come full circle and in October of 1999 we changed our name to Middle Tennessee Metal Detecting Club. We realized that although many of our members do have historical research interests the name often confused folks who couldn't understand our primary purpose. Our club now has well over 100 members and is growing monthly in members who share our interests.

Meeting location: Charlotte Pike, Nashville, Tennessee
Meeting Time: First Friday of every month 7:00 PM

New to Detecting

Hi everyone, brand new to metal detecting and looking for hints and suggestions on where to go in the Middle Tennessee (West Nashville, Dickson, Cheatham, Williamson County areas). My brother and I were each given a White's 6000/Di PRO SL with the Blue Max DeepScan 950 back in 1994, by my father, and it went straight to the closet. It's been used a few times since then to find lost jewelry in the yard for friends, etc. but no serious treasure hunting. Today marks the 1 year anniversary of my father's fatal stroke and I thought it appropriate to break out the detector he gave me. It's like brand new with the original manuals, extra battery and the extra Blue Max 600 coil.

Now that I have this thing and a charged battery, I don't know where to go or where to look. I do know of an old house site on some property I own ( I found it by locating an apple tree that is easily 100 years old and a field full of butter cups). I'm going to snoop around there with the detector today and see what I find, but am really into historic sites and exploring history with my kids. Are there areas that are agreeable to artifact hunters and where a novice such as myself has a reasonable chance of locating something?
