    Curb Hunting?

    Hey Hey,

    I've read a few threads about people hunting the grassy area between the sidewalk and the curb.

    Who do you ask for permission to hunt these areas?

    Thanks and HH!!

    That area is city owned, as far as I know. (albeit maintained/mowed by the homeowner). So if it's city-owned, then no permission needed. A bit of frickin discretion perhaps though, as ... well ..... you can't stop "connotations" from ensuing. I mean, go at low traffic times, don't stick out like a sore thumb, etc.... But as for "permission", technically none needed.

    I would at least knock on the home owners door and let them know what you will be doing as a courtesy and inform them that it is city owned property but you just wanted to let them know you will detecting there and will clean your mess and fill your holes.

    Who knows may even get you permission to hunt the rest of the property since you took the time to notify them of your intentions even though you did not have to.

    OR they might tell you that they do not want you digging in front of their house. Since that strip is city owned but (in most cases) maintained by the home owner, it is better to detect early in the day when no one will be out and about. Less chance of having an encounter with the home owner. I have seen homeowners out doing yard work and asked if they would mind if i detected the grassy area in front of their house, but I have never knocked on a door to ask permission to hunt the city owned area. What ever you feel comfortable with is up to you.

    I would just do it. Probably nobody will even ask you about it.

    I can tell you that the majority of people think they own they area. They also maintain it, some quite well thank you.

    I always ask, except when there is curb work being done and it's a mess anyway.

    The problem with asking is that you will get more no's than yes'es. If you just hunt without asking (since in most places you legally can) most homeowners won't bother to confront you to tell you no. The ones that do, just smile, tell them to have a good day, and move on to the next block. Most of the well maintained parking strips don't have anything good in them anyway, from my experience. They've been resodded and/or completely relandscaped where all the good stuff has either been hauled away or buried deeper than you can reach.

    Another option to consider is to hunt those strips adjacent to public schools, parks and sport fields....they'd be less of an issue with nearby residents.
