    Metal detecting laws in Oklahoma?

    Anyone know how to find out the state and federal laws in Oklahoma on metal detecting? Specifically on Corps of Engineers land around Kaw Lake and the Arkansas river system.

    I heard (Rumor) that all Federal land was off limits. But I called Tulsa Corps of Engineers office and they said it was allowed.

    Dont want to spend many hours detecting only to get a ticket, or worse case senerio, find a cache and the governmant take it.

    Thanks for any help,

    Nuggets you can keep unless THEY find out about it and classify it as treasure trove then it is up for grabs.

    The Corps has a pamplet on "all" rules and regs at the lake site office . Metal Detecting is covered in this. Mainly, you can only hunt in "disturbed" areas, ie: camp sites, swimming areas and beaches and such. You must report to the site office all finds of value of $50 or more, can not use a "bladed" (knife) tool or one that requires more than one hand to operate. Some sites are very strict, some don't bother. You can not pack out any "relic" (arrow heads, fossels, natural artafacts, even shed antlers). Been there, done that. I hunt Oologah Lake quite often.
    Good hunting.
