2.    Use the Proper Swing - When you see someone using a metal detector, you're likely to notice that they swing the apparatus left and right while they walk forward through an area. What many don't know is that there's actually a science to the swing, and not just any motion will be good enough to get the best results. If you swing your metal detector too fast, it might not be able to detect metal objects that are hidden in the ground. Another thing to remember is that swinging your metal detector too far from the surface of the ground also limits its ability to pick up on metal objects that you might want to retrieve.

3.    Do Your Research - It's one thing to know how to use a metal detector and another thing to know where to use one. The fact is, not all the locations that pop in your head are viable places for detecting metal objects. There are lots of areas that won't give you a single treasure, and others that are much more likely to reward you for your effort. Before you head out to use your metal detector, do a little research and find out where the best places are to detect metal objects. Take a look at this link for more information.
