    Metal detecting in Washington becoming extinct?

    I have only seen two people on the forum post their finds from Washington State so far in the past month. I know JuJu's not doing it anymore as I know of. I think hes too busy working, and I have no idea when we will see him posting finds. As for me, I kinda lost interest in it (I will gain back interest once JuJu or Washingtonian wants to go with me) Washingtonian is currently going to the same college as I am and we are very busy with homework. But! Whats the rest of your guys excuses for not posting your finds on the forum? I think Washington state will eventually become heavily populated with cement roads, bustling cities, and cars that we won't even get to find a grass area to detect at.

    Metal detecting will eventually kick the bucket in Washington state, because you can make more money at work than you can mding.

    Good Point. I know Tom and I still go out as much buts its so Frustrating. we find old houses old farms and nothing but clad, except for the occasional; good finds US belt Buckle, old bottles and things, it seems unless you are finding 20 standing libertys everyday its not worth posting yea any silver in this state is rare I was even thinking about starting our own page just for washington state! I want to go up to Camp Parsons, I think you said you went there before asd much as Tom and I have gone this year we should have piles of old Silver and Goodies... not the case thanks for this post good point come washington!

    Hey DF, we're trying just not finding much. Anytime you want to get together and hunt let me know. I'm not afraid of driving. This is actually my favorite time of the year to hunt with the rain and cooler temps. Parks and other places are easier to hunt with less people being out and about also with the summer growth dieing away. Anyway, don't worry I'll try and get something posted soon.

    When I get the the time, I will give you guys a buzz. I have been so busy with school myself. Family is also getting ready to move out of this house and into either Issaquah or Redmond. I hate moving, but oh well. When I feel like going, I will give ya a call.

    it might be because washington state archies are well known to troll websites looking for folks posting about their finding stuff * the archies then hunt them down to "see" what they got in their "collections" -- makes folks leery of posting finds sadly --some states have very aggressive archies that hate detectorist and surface artifact gathers with a passion.

    Archies can't hound you for what you find. If you find clad, silver and pull tabs then go ahead and post it.

    I find wheaties and silver so seldom that it would be a waste of their time to come here and tell me what to do with it. My profile shows ninety five percent of my finds and archies will not be able to find out what I did with the items.

    Archies: Archeologist, people who dig up treasure for museums and are usually paid a nominal fee for turning the treasures over to the museums.

    People that metal detect like we do look for coins, rings, pull tabs, or relics such as old bottles, marbles, belt buckles...archies look for ancient villages, dinosaur bones and historical items.

    Re: Metal detecting in Washington becoming extinct?

    I'd love to see an "Archie" knock on my door and tell me to turn over my finds. I can just see some old man wearing coke bottle glasses threatening me. I don't know if I'd laugh in his face or grab him by the collar and kick his ass off my property. Give me a break, that is hillarious. The Archie Police are watching you.

    Hey I just regestered on this site...I have been detecting for a long time...pretty much just got back into it...bought me a whites mxt...went to my favorite old coin spot...that I thought I hunted out with my old trusty CZ-5 and found more goodies about a week ago....first coin dug there was a 1891 silver dollar that is the 3rd silver dollar I have found there...since i very first started hunting the 16 acre park....oldest coin i found there is a 1876 quarter...best coin was the 1890 cc silver dollar.... If you guys would like to join me at this place, let me know...this place was a popular resort back in 1910 to around the 40s I believe??...my last trip there was a few days ago and i found a buffalo nickel unreadable date...2 wheat backs...1942 nickel and a 1903 indian head....this place has lots of potential!....years ago...I found lots of mercs.....and even 2 or 3 V-nickels....the location is in Lacey

    You need to get out more. I see detectorist all over the state. Of course I'm seeing them outdoors.

    I did not get a detector to be an extinct person or on the extinction list. If you a Washingtonian, then get out with your outdoor equipment and look alive.

    The days are getting a little longer and warmer then last year. I'm getting out once in a while when the rain slows down. Anybody with me.
    I'm looking for nuggets, wheaties, silver and jewelry. Not exactly in that order.
