When to dig...

Many people wonder if they should use discriminate and when they should be digging if they hear iffy signals. While there are times to use discriminate and times where I don't dig iffy signals in general you should be doing the following until you know your area and detector very well:

Iron = Don't dig
Not Iron = Dig

Iffy signal - if its repeatable and not iron = Dig
Faint/Deep signal - check to see if iron. If not, dig. If iron tone, clear a few inches of sand/dirt and check if its iron again to confirm. The deeper the target the more trouble machines have at telling what kind of metal is beneath the coil.
