    Possible hunt at 110+ y/o mansion in 200 y/o town! (Southern Illinois)

    I live near a small riverside town in southernmost Illinois that has been a community for 200 years. My friends in town have given me permission to detect the yard of their house, a mansion built in the 1890s. The house is also a bed and breakfast with a lounge (food, wine, beer) on the weekend. I am thinking of asking them if they would like to host a metal detecting hunt at their house and in my town. My question to everyone is would anyone be interested? There's a courtyard and a park that is an old railroad depot where I hunt often in town. There's also plenty of government owned forest we could hunt on foot. I would definitely ask my local officials first about hunting the places I haven't hunted before to make sure we have no problems though. This could be any weekend of year really, just not the middle of summer or winter I would think. Let me know please if anyone is interested. Thanks for reading; have a good day!

    Sounds good , I wish that I lived near you.

    Just a note I believe All Govt, land like Nat. Parks, Nat. Forrest & even in my St,Ga, State Parks , State Forrest's (Any Thing Govt,) is not legal to be hunted without a permit for Swimming areas or Campsites.
    So i,d def, check that out before hunting any govt, land.
    IMO It's a stupid law that is mainly there to protect Native American Sites.

    Tho it,s off subject
    If I recall correctly many archaeologists were complaining about early "Cultural Sites" may be 'found/ disturbed by us Regular type people while cleaning up the Gulf Oil spill.
    Cause this had happened in Alaska during the Exon Valdez Oil Spill Clean up.

    Good Luck with your hunt.
