    Portland, OR detctorists out there?

    Hi Everyone.

    Anybody on here from Portland, OR. I need some friends and or clubs to join for a few hunts. Not much fun doing it alone and I'm not always sure of where I am allowed to hunt.

    Thanks Oscar

    Hey Oscar -

    Here's a list of parks

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...rtland,_Oregon

    Last I heard you can detect parks, No shovels - of course use ground cloth, cut a nice plug, fill hole, take trash.

    I've been gone for a few years so double check.

    To get the exact stipulations/conditions for metal detecting in Portland Parks I recommend that you call the Portland Parks & Recreation at 503-823-7529 Happy Hunting!

    If Oscar is to do this, I recommend that he simply asks "Where can the public view the list of any rules/regulations of park usage?". "Eg.: dogs on leash, no fireworks, etc...". If they say "what is it you wanted to know?", you repeat the question : To know where the rules are available for public viewing.

    They will direct you to where it exists in print form somewhere . Eg.: a link or in binder form somewhere. If you don't see md'ing listed as prohibited, then presto: It's not prohibited.

    Do NOT call asking "Hi can I metal detect ?" Lest you risk being the latest victim of "no one cared till you asked" and "safe answer" routine.

    I concur with Tom in CA, the internet is your friend, all towns and cities have websites even county parks commissions, sometimes you just need a good google query to get the info you desire without getting persons involved. I enjoy to hunt with others, especially those I met here on Tnet, but do hunt "lone wolf" style most of the time.
