    Hi Guys,
    This doens'nt apply to this thread, but seeing how you are in the Shasta area, Check it out. On our last trip through the area we came across a vietnam memorial on the road from klamath falls to shasta (Maybe Yreka? Can't remember)
    It is an all volunteer memorial and the art work is outstanding. Check it out if you are in the area.

    Big Frank, who says you can't detect at historic places in CA? I detect them all the time If you talked to some select archies, they might try to tell you that md'ing is outlawed EVERYWHERE, but the truth of the matter is, unless you're snooping around some obvious historic monument, or being a nuisance, sticking out, etc... you'll be ok. Yeah, I probably wouldn't whip out the detector for the Shasta area ruins that sit right off the heavily trafficked road, if there were an archie convention going on at that exact moment next door. But for an old foundation out in the back-country, or more innocuous ruins at discreet times, I've never ran into a problem.

    There also various levels of "government" land in CA. There's federally owned, state owned, county owned, and city owned. So it would depend on what level you're talking about. And even within those various levels, you sometimes have to dig real deep to try to find something that applies. And even when you think you've found something about "antiquities" or whatever, they would only apply to something older. Like, if you tell them you were only looking for modern change, or that "boyscout ring you just lost", those would be different matters. I guess it's kind of like picking your nose: If you ask someone if you can do it, they'll tell you "no".

    If you don't wander around sensitive ruins at wrong times, making a mess, you'll be ok. Also, there's lots of private property (ranches, cow pastures, fallow row crops, etc...) that had old sites on them (stage stops, 1-room schools, old picnic spots, etc..) so the list is endless of where you can research out to hunt.
    Metal detecting is my one worldy vice!

    When I was researching local ordinances, I ran across some state laws and one of them had to do with historical monuments. I think if it's on the state register, then it's not okay to do anything there that would remove anything. Additionally, there was some regulations on certain state and federal land, including forest land.

    And if you have to be "discrete" about going to sites, then you probably shouldn't be there. Just because it's not posted, doesn't mean it's okay to go there.

    Hello Jay, Welcome to the wonderful world of Metal detecting. My name is Terry and I live in Shasta Lake and I have been Metal Detecting for about 13 years and I have done really well but lately I have been busy with my job and lacking places to hunt, If you have any ideas of places to go just let me know and maybe we could go hit them sometime. Good Luck and Happy Hunting.

    Hello: Do not pay attention about people who say they can pay @ whiskeytown for a metal detector permit, NO metal detector USE on Whiskey Town Property! The Ranger swooped down on me last Summer when my son and I were walking on the side of the road, I had my metal detector in a case, I was warned metal detectors are not allowed in whiskey town, I happened to be Off Hwy 299 & Trinity Road Half way before entering French Gulch. I also has a "No parking day fee" warning ( thought I was in French Gulch and the area was NOT marked "Day use fee required".) Tip: There is a lot of (BLM), Breau of land management areas which do allow metal detecting! Also check for "private property" posted signs. I would never try Brandy Creek, Whiskey Town Lake(s) on map. The Fish & Game and the forest rangers Dress in Camo! and I saw them pull cars over and issue speeding Tickets on Eureka/Hwy 299 WhiskeyTown. Watch out!

    I'm sure you couldn't detect in Old Shasta as it's a historical site, and as I understand it, you can't detect in any historical site in California.
    Swazey Road has a park in shasta and dry gulch off Hwy 99 are in Shasta and Metal Detecting is allowed in the parks also all BML land.

    Your friend was lucky, not just for what he found, but because he wasn't arrested. I worked at the Old Shasta park and town...and it is illegal to use a metal dectector there. Anything found belongs to the park. I'm a treasure hunter in Tehema county, not just metal detecting.

    Really ? A buddy of mine found a large cent around the ruins of the old Shasta foundations. Those ruins visible right off the road. I guess he didn't ask enough questions. Ouch. Ok, where does he turn it in to ??
