in some way i think it may deserve public attention. if that pays or not i don't know. there are stories that could connect if a fellow wanted them too. i don't know all the details . im not a treasure hunter per say. im a gold prospector doing some research that stumbled onto something . i don't know the story behind it for sure . just know that i need an educated next step. not in Wisconsin though. that's where i reside permanent. i get out and about pretty good

I’ve dealt with archeologists when trying to protect a petroglyph. After ten years, they sent somebody to look at it but no suggestions or effort to protect it. You live in Wisconsin, so I would suggest getting in touch with a tribal historian from the Ho Chunk Nation for advice. If it’s ancient but not Native American, they might be able to tell you how to move forward.

I really hate to say this but thinking out of the box might work. You could contact one of the T.V. shows that we see here on TNet. Sale the wrights to them to record it. . If they pay for all the cost for you to recover said find. You might want to talk to some one on TN. that have done that type of show I know that there are a some. I don"t think they would pass-up a story that has not been covered before with the same results. You will never know unless you try.

I'd just call Josh Gates from "Expedition Unknown", get whatever they'll offer for the story and then see what happens. If it's on state property, I don't think they'll be giving any of it up, but maybe you can get something out of it and cement your position as "the finder", even if it is on public land.
