    I don't think any state issues licenses for detecting, I imagine it's on a city level.
    Why do they call it "Taking a dump" when you're actually leaving one?

    Re: Metal Detecting Law ?

    No state permits required, only a couple cities require one, can't tell you which, and some county parks require one, ask at the entrance. Best advice is if there isn't a sign telling you no detecting, then hunt it with proper digging etiquette..... Once you start asking permission when there are no signs telling you not to detect, you open it up to someone's interpretation of what is legal and they may not even have the right to tell you....

    State Parks are off limits, some state parks on the beach do allow it on the beach, with the ranger's permission, ask before yoyu hunt there...All National parks are off limits..

    You do know that we already answered this for you in your other post right?
    Sometime in the future...people will look back at our time and realize that the main two contributors to our demise were participation trophies, and tenured professors.

    Re: Metal Detecting Law ?

    I found this on the U.S. Forest Service website. I have this laminated and keep it with me. The one time I was stopped, the forest ranger told me after reading it, that he was unaware of these rules. And off detecting I went. Chris

    Thanks for the link, that could be a very good thing to carry with you, glad it stated the codes by number. Makes it easier to verify.

    But the link at the bottom www.passportintime.com really got my attention. Have you, or anyone else followed up on this and went on one of these runs? I see several in my area for this summer all looking for experience with a metal detector. Sounds like a lot of fun. And benifical to the history of the area.

    Re: Metal Detecting Law ?

    grover, thanx for the link. The CA BLM land (which is federal) also has similar wording, which effectively oks detecting, so long as you're not snooping in obvious historic monuments.

    Too many times, we read on forums that all federal land is off-limits, but as you can see, this is not the case. And heck, we never find anything over 50 yrs. old anyhow, RIGHT? (my math never was too good, shucks )

    I never find anything over 50 years old. Do you Tom? Heck, I only have an SE Pro, and as we all know, it does not find anything of value. Chris

    Re: Metal Detecting Law ?

    Absolutely right Chris. I'm only finding modern clad. How about you? Or heck, I'm just looking for the boyscout ring my dad lost here when he was a kid. But archaeological artifacts? Nah

    I called our US Forestry service in Texas this morning and they told me it is illegal to metal detect. I asked if I could e-mail this to them three times before they would give me an e-mail address. I did not want to get in an argument so I will contact some higher ups later about it.

    Re: Metal Detecting Law ?

    Hogman, I'm a little confused: If you already knew it was ok to detect national forest service land (per the link which you already had), then why did you call to ask if you could? Why not just print this out, and go? If someone had a question, you merely show it to them (I highly doubt anyone would even pay second mind to you though). Your situation is just one more case of "no one cares, till you ask". Heck, if I had a "yes", I wouldn't keep pushing the issue, and looking for even more sanctions. So I'm not sure why you would ask more?
