    Senate Bill SB432:

    BumLuck Please chime in.

    I was reading the bill on metal detecting on state land and don't see much of a ban in the bill.
    Here is what I am reading. Allot of dues and don't s size of digging tool, open hunting season,
    Historical and state camp grounds. What am I missing about banning metal detectors on DNR managed land.

    2009 - 2010 LEGISLATURE

    2009 Senate BILL 432
    December 21, 2009 - Introduced by Senators Kreitlow, Holperin, Schultz, Taylor
    and Hansen, cosponsored by Representatives Hixson, Suder, Townsend, Van
    Akkeren, Ballweg
    and Hilgenberg. Referred to Committee on
    Transportation, Tourism, Forestry, and Natural Resources.

    1An Act to amend 44.47 (2); and to create 23.21 of the statutes; relating to: the
    2use of metal detectors on certain land and in lakes and the removal of items
    3found on that land or in those lakes.

    Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
    This bill prohibits the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) from
    preventing a person from using a metal detector in areas of lakes that are less than
    six feet deep (shallow water), on most land under DNR's jurisdiction, and on land
    acquired with funding from the Warren Knowles-Gaylord Nelson Stewardship 2000
    Program or its predecessor program and that is open to public access. It also
    prohibits DNR from requiring a person who uses a metal detector on that land or in
    shallow water to hold a license, permit, or other approval authorizing the use of a
    metal detector on the land or in the shallow water. The bill provides an exception to
    these prohibitions so that the prohibitions do not apply to land that is historically
    significant or to state campgrounds. The bill defines historically significant land to
    include land that the State Historical Society determines is historic property, land
    that is included on a map of archaeological resources prepared by the State Historical
    Society, and land that is listed on the state register of historic places. The bill also
    allows DNR to prohibit the use of metal detectors on land when that land is open to
    deer hunting.
    This bill also authorizes a person who is allowed to use a metal detector under
    the bill to use a tool to dig for and remove found items. The bill provides that a tool
    used for digging may not be more than eight inches wide, any soil that is disturbed

    or removed by digging must be replaced, and the digging may not occur on a lake bed
    unless the lake bed is beneath shallow water.

    The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
    enact as follows:
    1Section 1. 23.21 of the statutes is created to read:
    223.21 Use of metal detectors. (1) In this section:

    I dont think this bill means anything as it is pretty much dead. The one we were working on with the Wisconsin wild life federation. Was to allow us to detect on state land and in the water.
    But with all this recall crap going on nobody has time or effort to push it through.
