That is true,
It is illegal, I have read the thread in the link. Tough many times we go out for metal detecting, we encoutered the law inforcements, and most of the time they had more interest in what we were doeing than to see if its ilegal or not.
Many place we go hunt is private area, like forest in the town I live. We know owners and they dont seem to be bothered with it.
I would like to give more information about the locations, but in some way I like to keep it to myself, before I return and see that someone else went over the same area...
