As the popularity of this hobby grows, more and more people get involved in treasure hunting activities of all sorts such as Colonial, Rev War, 1812 War and Civil War relic hunting, cache hunting and coin shooting. At the same time, urban developments are taking over the "hot spots" for metal detecting thus compelling treasure hunters to put more effort into their research for new potential sites. Plus, unlike any European country, America is fairly young - its history does not go back far. These are the reasons why successful metal detecting in the USA is so challenging.
Fortunately, the technology of metal detecting equipment is improving constantly thus giving treasure hunters an opportunity to unearth more good finds at the thought-to-be-searched-out metal detecting sites. At the same time, advanced technology requires a more educated approach on part of metaldetectorist in order to understand new Know-How's. For example, in European countries with thousands of years of history and civilization, many metaldetectorists use just pre-set factory programs and/or hunt without headphones to make remarkable finds. In the US, treasure hunters have to be more patient, creative, industrious, and persistent in developing optimum search programs to get satisfactory results!
