For hunting for targets in grass, use a probe. A probe helps you pinpoint
your target BEFORE you start digging. A Probe is best for those shallow
targets. I use a carpenters AWL for a probe. Make sure that your probe is
not too sharp and pointy. It can damage a valuable coin if it is too sharp
on the point.
Dig Unlikely Targets:
Be sure to dig targets that come up as "trash". This is
especially important if the place you are hunting is one that you
frequent. If you clear the area, next time you will be able to find the
real targets. Also don't forget that some of those "trash
targets" might be good finds like rings and tokens.
