just started my new hobby not to long ago.
looking for input, places to go, and maybe hunting together.

I've been out a few times and chased away from a few parks. need to know where to go that's OK.

I had one given to me as a gift a few years back, haven't really been out to use it yet

I would bet that a few of the state parks would be good places to go, especially in the spring before people starting flooding them with the warmer weather.

can't dig in most state parks. and My county park rules are "No digging,cutting of the grass allowed" you can metal detect all you want ...you just can't dig

I tried the hobby for a summer. There was a group located near the Rochester area. They had monthly meetings and cool gatherings. I know they hunted a couple smaller parks around the area. I never met up with them though.

I liked to hit Durand beach for pocket dumps, and the occasional chain left behind by the thugs...Also playgrounds are good... Both of these are great to get used to things.

Whenever I tried less beaten areas I got skunked...although I did find a small time capsule someone left behind. It wasn't sealed well and was overly water damaged.

Didn't take long to tire of the digging up gum wrappers and other junk though.

There was a good forum, that's where I found that group.
