Glad you found your hubbies keys WD... but then again, who knows what you might've found if you had to detect all 40 acres.Thursday night, MR WD was on the tractor moving rocks and leveling dirt. Friday morning he goes to leave for work and realizes he lost his keys. He searched the house and came to the conclusion that he lost them while on the tractor. He told me to go look for them as soon as it was daylight. Now for you that don’t know, we have 40 acres!
My son found out, and shot me a pm. Here’s that conversation:

I found the keys on the floor in the bedroom. So glad I didn’t have to hunt for them all day!
Thanks for the advice about making him a nice display box of interesting things I found on his property Whadi. I've given him a few things over the years, but I like your idea of staying in touch with him as a friend.In this litigious world we find ourselves living, I've found that giving someone Something with all that legalese on it, just puts them off.
A simple, written, signed letter stating that you assume all responsibility for anything that happens to you and that you will hold the owner completely blameless. Just has a better chance of working.
This farmer is a lost cause and I'd push no more. But do attempt to keep as a friend, with no hooks!
Maybe make him a nice display box of interesting things you found on his property. Give it to him as a Christmas gift. Then, let the chips fall where they may. You might even get invited back sometime.
Oh! And also? This farmer got talked into his action by a neighbor or something? Tell him, "Oh! By the way? I saw your neighbor on your property when I was passing by late one night. He was digging massive holes!"
Well, I do detect it, when I am desperate to dig. Lol. Between the electrical lines, the hot rocks and rusty fence pieces, it is quite challenging. Maybe frustrating is a better description. It’s a lot of ground for just me to cover.Glad you found your hubbies keys WD... but then again, who knows what you might've found if you had to detect all 40 acres.
