Keep us posted Sam!
by: Frank

Sam, now that you hooked us with your wonderful story, you gotta keep us up to date on what you find when you go back. I also thank you for reminding others about illegal sites, and covering up their holes. We in this hobby have too many against us who want to shut us down. So please be professional everyone.

Thanks again Sam!

Research Pays!
by: Mike Powers

This story reminds me of when I was given permission to detect on private property.

I did some research and found that the Native Idians used to roam and live on this property. I did hours and hours of research and found that they would set up camp down by this river that ran through the property.

So I got permission and WOW! I found things I never dreamed about. Of course I had to turn them in because of the state laws that I wasn't aware of, ut I had a great time.
