Welcome to GT's Digs!

"Dig your own artifacts, and keep what you find!"


Dig with us!

We operate most weekends and sometimes during the week (Fridays) as well if we can fill enough spots or if a decent sized group is interested. Possibly even some night digs if enough people are interested in those.  Prices vary with season & soil conditions. Full-Day Hand Digging/Surface Hunting IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE SEVEN DAYS A WEEK FOR ONLY $60!

Full day Screen Digs are available. Click on the Book A Dig Today button for more details!! Children under 12 are free to dig with just one paid adult entry!! Digs generally run 8am to 5pm with an hour lunch break at noon.

You’ll want a canopy to keep the sun or rain off your back. Gloves for sure. The rubber palm knitted gloves work best and they are cheap. Bring any drinks or food you want. Any tools you may want for moving the dirt across the table. A lot of people use shrimp rakes or trowels or garden tools. Hat sunglasses camera sun screen.

We are always looking for new land lease opportunities and are always expected to check out possible Camp sites all around Texas so if you or anyone you know have land with any natural water resources on them there is a pretty good chance you are sitting one a camp site as old as 13 THOUSAND YEARS OLD! OR OLDER! CONTACT US NOW FOR A FREE LAND CONSULTATION!
