Not only have I never found one, I only know of one "Milwaukee area" guy who has, and I know about 50-60 detectorists in this area.
Considering the fact that I dig about 90% of all repeatable, iffy signals, I really do hope to find one someday.

But you do admit the whistling method DOES work. It just isn't as efficient rock throwing method.
