Start Kids Early with the Bounty Hunter Junior!

One of the real joys of metal detecting is enjoying the hobby with the ones you love.  What better way to bond with your children outdoors, while exercising and learning about history then metal detecting?  When it comes down to it, you’ll be hard pressed to find an easier to use kids metal detector that won't break the bank and allow your children to enjoy the hobby you love. 

And of course, the Bounty Hunter Junior’s small size makes it the perfect metal detector to keep in your car as a backup just in case you find yourself at a promising location without your main detector.  Or if you have lost a valuable item, such as a wedding ring, and are not interested in the hobby of metal detecting but need a cheap metal detector to find that ring, then the Junior is for you! 

Is the Bounty Hunter Junior a Kids Metal Detector Only?

Learning the Bounty Hunter JuniorNo! Just because the Bounty Hunter Junior is small, light and compact doesn’t meant that it doesn’t also pack a metal-detecting wallop. While it’s obviously not going to be as powerful as large, top-of-the-line models, the Junior still holds its own with most mid-range detectors.

You’ll still be able to detect coins and smaller treasures up to 5’’ deep, and larger objects can be detected up to 3 feet down. Your Bounty Hunter Junior will still be able to discriminate against undesirable metals, it will still offer variable sensitivity, and it will still approximate the depth of the objects you have found. With these features even adults will easily be able to find quality finds with the Bounty Hunter Junior.
