    Be careful who you tell where your hunting spots are! My "friend" snaked mine...

    I have been hunting with this guy for years now. I even took him to the spot where I found my 2 CSA buckles. -The deal was that he only go with me and tell nobody else. I went back to my "secret" spot the other day, and BAM! -Holes EVERYWHERE! I quickly sent him a text hoping that it wasn't him...but it was. He acted like it was no big deal. Well, it is to me! Our relic hunting days are done, and I hope he falls and breaks his machine. LOL! Guess you never know who your friends are...

    This is forever going to be a problem.. If you have a secret spot keep it just that.. Sorry to hear your friend snaked you.

    Dang it TK in VA - you can't trust anyone. Now, when you find that next secret spot - let us know the location so we can make sure no one sneaks in and MD's

    Always sucks !!!! I took a "good friend" to an old hidden cabin, and the next week he went back with a friend. Snakes are everywhere !! This "friend" has never done any research,never found a place to go,nothing,,,, We are still friends and talk once in awhile,but whenever he brings up detecting,I change the subject ! I have learned my lesson for the last time.

    Not only pisses ya off, but it plain hurts to have a trusted friend betray your trust. I have had it happen in both metal detecting and even more so in deer hunting. A guy I hunt with now on property I have exclusive right to, still laughs about my initiation speech to him. I included threats to his person and even his gene pool if I ever caught him on the property without me. All brought on by people of low moral standards. They are truly a piece of to do that to a friend.

    Metal Detecting
    California, January 24, 1848. John Sutter had a Fort on the American River. He wanted a mill and hired a carpenter named James Marshall to build the main building. Marshall was scouting out a good spot for the construction and found some gold lying in the river. He went back to his buddies and said, "look. I found gold in the river!" That was it and the rush was on.

    I have similar deals with a couple of people, they are still trusted & have not been dumb enough to break our friendship. So my point is, do it but pick more carefully.

    Been there. I even had a couple so called 'good standing' members of a local club steal a few sites. It takes a lot of research to get good sites and then to have them stolen is a real bummer. I quit the club more than 20 years ago because of it. Now I keep my mouth shut about the sites and my finds too.

    It's amazing what greed will do to someone even when there's nothing guaranteed!
