“I have bad shoulders, so I really like the light weight of the machine.  Here on Minnesota’s Iron Range we often encounter minerals, hot rocks and slag mixed in with trash.  The super fast recovery speed of the Deus is able to pick out the goods stuff from the bad stuff making for making for a more successful hunt.”


















Tami and I have been married 35 years.  We have 4 children and 14 grandchildren.  Our entire family is very active and involved in outdoor activities – hunting, fishing, camping, metal detecting and much more.  Living in northern Minnesota surrounded with lakes and woods is perfect for us.

I use to fish every day in the summer until I started metal detecting.  I’m still at the lake almost every day, but now it’s to water detect.  I’ve been metal detecting 18 years and the last 4 years I’ve been water detecting.  “There’s nothing like it when you hear a big clunk in the bottom of your scoop and it’s bright shiny yellow.”
