    Citrus County Hunting

    Anyone have any tips or direction for this area? My wife and I are fairly new to MDing and have done a ton of research on our county. The biggest problem we find is everything seems to either be protected(state land) or private. Not much for just going out in the woods and lookin...which I suspect is a big dilemma everywhere else too....
    Is "getting permission" to hunt private land the majority of areas MD'ers tend to go towards or is there something I've missed I have looked at aerial and "historically significant" maps and just seem to hit dead ends. Any suggestions are appreciated,Thanks.

    Go to your county seat in Inverness to tax office and ask for the old Gov't Survey plats of the 1800's. Have a notebook to jot down Range/Township/Section of old pioneer homesteads and/or settlements, river crossings, Indian towns and anything that smells like treasure. The tax people can cross reference for you if you need permission on private land. Go to the library and request the History of Citrus and Hernando county. That Battle of Bayport was a Civil War naval engagement against a Confederate port guarded by a cannon battery. That book will have a CW map of the layout. A boat ramp sits on the fort site but the rifle pits may still be there. I tracked down the owner about 20 years ago and he weren't real friendly but maybe there are new owners now. Coins are the only thing to look for, buy a good spring steel bottle probe and learn to probe for trash pits and privy holes for old bottles. Some are worth their =weight in gold.
    9 books authored: Forts, Camps & Batteries of Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Pennsylvania next to be released, Ohio rereleased April and Virginia, New, released in April. Next book series will be North & South Carolina.

    Where to Metal Detect in Central Florida and South Florida. All books formerly available at Kellyco are out of print. They will be available as they are redone and made available on Victoria Rhine Facebook page. Watch that for the releases. Currently working on researching Kentucky. Thank you.

    Get a copy of "FLORIDA AT WAR"-Donald D Spencer,published 2011 Schiffer Publishing,Ltd.
    E-Mail: info@schifferbooks.com if you can't find it locally.
    The book contains all the forts,battles,etc and locations from the Spanish era to WWII.There is a lot of Seminole War and some Civil War history in Citrus County.
    Also take a short trip to the village of Pineola south of Floral City on 39.There was quite a train wreck there in the days of yesteryear.
