    I don't understand why we can't use a screwdriver on the sgls like in the state parks to detect. They pgc rarely change things and still operate a lot like its 1940. I had a friend years ago move to north Carolina and showed me a combo fishing and hunting license you buy for one fee with all the extras. Then if you shoot a deer you call 1-800-I got one. If things were only that easy and simple here.

    too Long a story , But I was told by a state game land ranger

    Technically you can detect, you can dig, you can photograph what you find.
    but after you must Rebury or set it in clear view for others to see as they walk by.
    But you can't remove from SGL.

    and Being what they know will really happen they would politely
    request you pack up and leave if they catch you.

    of course this was a ranger doing PR

    I'm sure some rangers would not be so polite

    luck of the draw

    It all comes down to revenue. The state may not own the land but the amount of money generated by sales tax collected through sales of ammunition, weapons, clothing, camping supplies, etc DOES sway politicians' opinions in the matter.

    technically I suppose if this goes through yes.

    However I would hope they would have to post it so well, even a 9 year old would not be able to say
    they missed the signs
