George Hicks's Bio

"Well respected treasure hunter in Orange County, with a lot of experience hunting for relics, valuables, coins, rings and anything really! Hunting Beaches, Farms, Backyards, huge fields, parks, lakes, rivers, inside homes and businesses. 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 several detectors which all have their specialties. The New Minelab Equinox 800 is my Go-To machine, but also the Garrett AT-MAX, Garrett AT-PRO, Whites Surf-PI Pro and all with a variety of coils from 5" to 15" diameter.

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