For hunting for targets in grass, use a probe. A probe helps you pinpoint your target BEFORE you start digging. A Probe is best for those shallow targets. I use a carpenters AWL for a probe. Make sure that your probe is not too sharp and pointy. It can damage a valuable coin if it is too sharp on the point.

Dig Unlikely Targets: 

Be sure to dig targets that come up as "trash". This is especially important if the place you are hunting is one that you frequent. If you clear the area, next time you will be able to find the real targets. Also don't forget that some of those "trash targets" might be good finds like rings and tokens.
