    Well it is if you don't have permission. You can't just go 'someplace and use it' without knowing the laws. It is pretty easy to find out, just call or visit the city hall parks department and ask. Not sure what NC public land rules are, but here in MO all the state parks are off limits to detecting. There is a big fine and confiscation of all your equipment if your caught. Private land should be ok if you have the owners permission.

    Re: Detecting in North Carolina

    Hey guys, I'm in NC too. I just joined the board and am just getting into detecting. I live in Johnston County about 20 miles from Bentonville. My wife's family was from that area but they don't have any battlefield land. If anyone gets a hunt up, I would sure like to join in. Right now I'm hitting the playgrounds and old home sites. Lots of clads but no silver yet.

    Re: Detecting in North Carolina

    Go to your county courthouse and ask for the old Government Survey Plats. Sometimes they have old maps already printed out for sale. These maps will show old roads, settlements, pioneer homesteads, Indian villages, river crossings, fort sites and crossroads. Should be enough sites to keep any TH'er busy for years. Remember in the old days, banks were scarce and not trusted so old pioneer homesteaders would cache their money in post hole banks. Good luck and post photos of finds.

    Re: Detecting in North Carolina

    I live in Charlotte, N C and have a friend in Greenville, N C .She said her brother used to find alot of C. W Relic's in this area.She has no idea if he detected Fayetteville, Wilmington or where ever. I went to Bentonville with about 6 club members ( forgot how to spell ) about 25 years ago and paid the land owner to detect,. Every week he would take the money and buy more bullets and put them in the field ( I guess ) and this help paid for the amusement I guess.
