George Hicks's Bio

Well respected treasure hunter in Orange County, with a lot of experience hunting for relics, valuables, coins and anything really! I am a standing member of the Riverside Treasure Hunters Club in Riverside, CA where I lived for many years until recently moving back to the OC. I know many other treasure hunters and we gather often to hunt and have fun. I have returned many items, including jewelry and even a 1910 Shriner's Club Badge!

I use the Garrett AT-Pro with several search coils and the Whites Surf PI-Pro for beach hunting. 55 years old, married with two daughters.

I am still working and hunt evenings and weekends primarily, but can expedite a hunt if needed and time sensitive.
