Sounds like you've either got a large object such as a pipe or can (in that case it's probably best to move on), or your pinpointer is falsing due to the soil mineralisation (I've had that happen to me before). To prevent this, grab a handful of the dirt inside the hole, stick your pinpointer into the handful of dirt and turn it on. Then put the pinpointer back in the hole and see if the signal is still there. Good luck

The impending Yellowstone Caldera eruption is giving us all fits right now...that and the long overdue Polar Geomagnetic shift...nothing to worry about...
