If tons of meteorite hunters go there every year, find one of them who is experienced and often finds them, go with that guy to learn the ropes.
Like many things, you can probably learn it best by working with somebody who knows what he's doing.
Yeah; as far as I know, the main skills that you need to pick up are observational and knowing what to look for. You can't really get that from text, you have to see and feel to really get the information.
Which is all good advice, except the guys down here are territorial as f*ck and won't even show you their finds, let alone allow you join in on their hunts. -_-; Meteorites are worth money, so it's not like tagging along with the local rockhounds on a Saturday morning hike to find agates. That's kinda why I'm hoping someone here (who hunts on a whole different continent and therefore doesn't have a stake in the desert) might give me tips.
They have a show about meteor hunters. They give a lot of information about how and where to look. Only thing I can say is the main tool I see them use is a magnet on a stick. Most have iron in them and will be attracted.
Search on Youtube. You are bound to find something.
