    Not metal, but still salvage rights discussion

    A friend posted this article on Facebook. The gist is that people are being prosecuted for diving and "harvesting" lost disc golf frisbees. I feel this could set a precedent against finding lost jewelry and other items. I think that any good detectorist would return something that so blatantly had a name and phone number on it. Thoughts?

    Never heard of golf disk before. When did they stop calling them Frisbees.

    Interesting. I know of a guy who has a rake attached to a string that picks them out of a lake calls the numbers on them for a "reward". Seems like a good racket as some of those things are not cheap. I don't know about that being illegal. Just don't do it in FL.

    I guess the point I was getting at is that they are making it illegal to find things that the owners were never going to recover.
