Metal detectorists Mike, Scott, Brian, Tim and Barry from South Carolina have been metal detecting for many years.  Although locals of the Myrtle Beach Grand Strand area, they hunt all over the Carolinas, Virginia, and have been known to detect on the Florida coast line as well. White's, Fisher, Minelab and Garrett are the choice detectors, and the guys are always crossing each other's paths with friendly wagers on anything and just about everything!  Interested in catching-up with them on a hunt? No problem, check the calendar and find their next scheduled hunt. Seasoned pro or just a beginner with an inexpensive detector… they'll welcome you to the group. It all equals great fun!

LMS Metal Detecting

Name: Mike Hile

YouTube Channel: LMS Metal Detecting  Having a great time making the videos!

Online Column: In The Weeds

Location: Murrells Inlet South Carolina USA (near the well known Myrtle Beach Grand Strand area) I also hunt in Georgetown, South Carolina and areas throughout North Carolina as well.

Experience: Well, I really started in 2010 when my wife and kids surprised me on my birthday with a Bounty Hunter metal detector. I was really shocked, because I never mentioned any interest in the hobby... I suppose after 25 years with her by my side the girl just knows me or, I was getting fat and she wanted my ass out of the house. I ended-up just loving the sport!  My business LMS Web Design was really taking off at that time, adding new clients monthly with very large projects kept me hunkered down in front of a computer...  Finding time for the "hunt" was almost impossible!

Early Spring of 2013 I finally stopped taking new clients and made time for the finer things in life like metal detecting.
