I hunted a yard that dated to the late 1800's with my new Etrac and came up with 6 wheats, 1923, 193? D (can't read the last number), 1940 S, 1945, 1945 D, and a 1946. The Merc is 1916, unfortunately no D mint mark.

Great first hunt Mark! Did you use the factory settings or a custom setup?

Keith, I tried to set it up as close to the XS as possible. I know there are some major differences between the two machines. I kind of started out with Andy Sabisch's coin pattern and tweaked the settings a bit. All of the wheats were at least 6" deep and the dime was about 8-9". What I liked about the XS was when you pinpointed a coin, it would make a sound that let me know it was a coin. Kind of a stutter sound. So far with the Etrac, even the dime was loud on pinpoint. Anyway to get it sound like an XS? Thanks!

I know what you are talking about on the XS. I haven't tried to get the eTrac to do that. I like the loud signal then I look at the depth meter if I'm hunting a yard or a park. In the fields I dig it all. :whistle:
