A permit? I'll have to do this. I'm just wanting to know so I won't get into allot of trouble. I didn't know it was like this and I dug around a school built in 1886.... I didn't even ask.... It's seems more strict in Michigan. I'm now knowing more about it.
im wanting to look through parks and the beaches. Not to much construction sites.
I won't ever look through private property. Lol
Okay thank you. I'm just wanting to know more about what I'm doing and know what I'm doing.
Yes I know that. I just don't want to get in trouble cause I don't know what I'm doing...
I wasn't thinking about detecting anyone's home. To shy to ask if u can search around there home. Might get someone not having a good day.
Around my place most of the small country homes have fishing ponds. My son is an avid fisherman. He will knock on a persons door and offer to trim the shrubs or cut their grass for the opportunity to fish their pond. I don't believe he has ever been turned down.... Now I'm not saying you have to offer labor in return for access to prime detecting ground. But I think you will be surprised what a little grace and a warm smile will get you. Just be gracious when you knock on a person's door. Most folks welcome a kind face.
In my area we can search city property but need a permit to search state property.
I was ask to leave a school yard once. I knew I was legal but did not care to argue the point. In todays times, the police will ask you to leave school grounds on school days. I fully understand why they do this.
So....I guess I will have to put to rest my old childhood saying....
"Finders, keepers, losers, weepers".........
When it comes to metal detecting, yes.
Nebraska? Not s'much.
I love all NY Beaches!
No foreman will risk a law suit if you get hurt by their equipment. Rarely do they say anything even if they know you are searching their site as long as you do it on days where they don't operate or before and after they are working. I've followed that simple rule of thumb since 1958 with no problems. Private property without ongoing construction is another matter and should never be searched without permission in writing. To avoid complications stay off federal or state lands.
Just remember when in doubt don't.
A lot of people will happily grant you permission if you’re respectful of their property and just ask. A lot of old houses around me and old foundations are great too
You are correct in your statement. I usually sign a paper I made up stating the construction company will not be liable for any injuries I may receive and that I have permission to be there. We each get a copy. These are for fenced off areas. I don't hunt when crews are working. As far as other sites, I've had more problems with nosey neighbors than property owners. Keep your coil to the soil.
