Laws, Don't Break Them!
There are laws that pertain to digging artifacts on State or Federal lands. Be sure you are not breaking any of these laws.
If you're digging on private property you only need the permission from the property owner.
Metal detecting in city, town or village parks is ok as long as you see no signs that tell you not to dig or metal detect.
Thanks for visiting!
