    Since he is a Friend, You Have to decide How Close of a Friend.

    The Fact your Asking IF you should get it in Writing, Makes me Wonder IF you Don't Trust Him ?

    I personally, When Doing Friends Places, Show them Everything.

    IF they Want Something It's Theirs.

    IF I were to Find a Cache, I'd Trust them to allow me to keep Half.

    UNLESS of course He Isn't realy a Friend.

    Re: moral question

    Jeff said it straight. If he's a friend, you split if you find anything. Show him all of it and since He invited you to HIS property, what you find is legally his in most states anyway. An IT IS JUST THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

    Re: moral question

    Yes I agree, talk to your friend and explain all possibilities of things you could find. If he's a good friend, I don't think you should need anything in writing. As long as your both honest with each other. A split between you two would properly be the best. Maybe you can even get him or her interested in detecting. Good luck.

    Might as well jump on the bandwagon as it's going by. Jeff pretty much summed it up. HH!

    Re: moral question

    thanks for the advice. I was planning on spliting every thing with him anyway. The search was my idea he has some preconceived nothions that metal detectors are worthless....we will see. I plan on going over today (sunday) and search some of his property. I will hopefully post some pics of the great finds. thanks again.

    Re: moral question

    If it will fit in your pocket and go undetected, such as a gold coin, I would say keep it to yourself....the human element of greed always rears it's ugly head in circumstances like this.

    Show your friend some clad, broken toys, pull tabs and keep the good stuff a secret.

    This advise is written in the books...............

    Re: moral question

    well put jersey. But I have also been givin the same advise, "the nice finds in pocket, clad in your treasure bag to show owner." concept, although I have not used it,...yet.

    I really think it is a situational decision, you trust the guy, he let you detect, why not show him. HE DOESNT THINK DETECTORS WORK ANYWAYS, show em what we can do!!!! He will be asking how he can get his hands on one!!!!
