Bounty Hunter Gold Digger Metal Detector

About the Bounty Hunter Gold Digger Metal Detector

Our Bounty Hunter Gold Digger Metal Detector review takes you through the features of this excellent, low-cost, American made VLF metal detector with a weatherproof 7″ search coil and headphones.

The Gold Digger is one of Bounty Hunter’s most popular entry-level models. If you have a bit more budget to spend on your metal detector and want something you use in at least shallow water, then you might want to check out the Bounty Hunter Lone Star or Bounty Hunter Land Ranger Pro.

If you’re looking for a great starter metal detector with all the features you started but without a big budget, the Bounty Hunter Gold Digger is worth considering.

It can detect coin-sized objects in soil up to six inches deep and larger items up to two feet deep.


We love that this detector comes with headphones. These will help you to tune out ambient sounds and help you focus on finding your treasure without annoying people around you, if you’re in a crowded place like a beach or park.

It features an all-metal mode and has a trash elimination control to help you target only the objects you want.

The arm is easy to adjust, so it can be used by the kids as well.

    I actually emailed the bounty hunter company asking about using it in water. They said that as long as the control box doesn’t get wet you’re good. The coil and everything else is fine to use in the water.

      Hi Erik,
      Thank you so much for letting us know. That is really good information about using our metal detectors in water. I think at the beach it would be good to wash it off in fresh water to remove the salt and wipe over the controls. But great news, as we can now use our Bounty at the beach.
