Turn It On And Go Treasure Hunting:

Bounty Hunter engineers started with a blank slate when they introduced the Bounty Hunter Gold. The Bounty Hunter Gold model is feature-packed yet offers turn on and go simplicity. This model features a discriminate mode. At the push of a button, you can adjust the sensitivity and volume of the detector. This metal detector sets a new standard for ease of use and value. Feature for feature, this model goes far beyond the competition. The Bounty Hunter Gold is lightweight, well constructed and deep seeking. This detector is easy to use and features intuitive, easy to understand controls. The Bounty Hunter Gold metal detector is great for both kids and adults alike.

Discrimination Mode - This mode is the default mode and is the mode most commonly used for continuous searching. Like most modern metal detectors, it requires the searchcoil to be in motion in order to detect and identify targets. In this mode, targets are identified with distinct tones, and are classified in categories at the bottom of the display. All menu items can be selected, customized or changed in this mode. The discrimination mode is a cumulative elimination system. Targets can be eliminated from left to right on the scale.

Notch Discimination Mode - In this mode, the user can selectively eliminate individual targets. While the Discrimination Mode eliminates all categories sequentially from detection; the Notch control allows you to selectively include or exclude individual target categories from detection.

Bounty Hunter Gold Adjustments:

Sensitivity Control - Increase or decrease the sensitivity of the detector at the touch of a button. Sensitivty on a metal detector is also known as depth. The sensitivity control helps you to fine tune the detector for the best operation.

Volume Control - Change the detector speaker volume at the touch of a button.

Deep Seeking Concentric Coil Design

The Bounty Hunter Gold detector features a cutting edge concentric search coil design. The triple spoke design punches down deep and cuts through iron and aluminum trash. The concentric coil winding produces smooth operation for all types of treasure hunting. The search coil is waterproof and features an 8" diameter... a perfect balance between depth and sensitivity. Experience powerful, deep target detection and easy pinpointing.

About the Bounty Hunter Gold Concentric Search Coil Design:

The Bounty Hunter Gold concentric search coil is engineered with both an inner circle and an outer circle wire winding. The search pattern produced is cone shaped and is excellent for accurately pinpointing targets with ease. This Bounty Hunter search coil includes the latest technology and is waterproof and electro statically shielded. In general, larger search coils will give better depth on larger targets and also more ground coverage. However, sensitivity to smaller objects may be sacrificed. Smaller search coils will offer greater sensitivity to smaller objects and improved target separation in trashy soil. This coil offers the perfect balance of depth and sensitivity.

Three Tone Audio Target Identification System:

While the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen is very accurate in identifying buried objects, the user in the field does not always maintain the display screen in their field of vision. Therefore, an audio tone system is included to alert the user to the nature of buried objects. This audio tone system first alerts the user to the presence and classification of objects, whose nature and location can be confirmed using the LCD display. The detector can sound three different tones, depending on the object detected.

A Full Featured Detector:

The Bounty Hunter Gold metal detector includes a numerical category target id system. The unit has a 3 tone audio target identification and 6 levels of discrimination. Targets are identified by category. A single discrimination notch is selectable by category. You can adjust the sensitivity to reduce interface from power lines and enhance your target depth. This model includes a battery life indicator, an intuitive menu system and numerical depth readout. You can hunt in either the discrimination mode or use the all metals motion mode. The ground balance for this unit is preset. This unit is excellent for coin and relic hunting but not designed for beach hunting. The design of this model includes an adjustable stem, a rubber-button control interface locking ring coil connector, an optional arm strap (not included), and a padded arm rest with a comfort hand-grip.

Good buy found property marker quickly. Review by MikeL54
The Good, this unit has very nice display with good clues to depth and metal type. Uses a single 9V battery, something I like. The not so good, it's almost too sensitive I use it at minimum level, which is good for my environment. The ugly, the sound starts out at max. a bit startling in a quiet setting. Over all this is a very good unit for the price, and works with earphones (hanging loose) if you need quieter sound! (Posted on August 12, 2017)

Love my Bounty Hunter Gold! Review by Janice P.
I spent quite a bit of time researching the different options before pulling the trigger on this purchase. I am sure glad that I did as this unit is very easy to use and has discovered several targets that were much deeper than I expected. My first time out I located a silver standing liberty quarter at about 8 inches deep. The shopping experience was easy and the folks at sure know their stuff. The free bonus pack was a pleasant surprise. Nice to purchase from a family run business as well. If you are on the fence like I was, this one is a keeper! (Posted on November 26, 2016)
