Hunting for Metal
If you wish to hunt for metal using a metal detector, it is recommended to start in your local area since you know it well. This will help you be more comfortable while practicing with your new device. When it comes time to look for land, be sure to ask permission from property owners before entering onto any premises. With the same respect, be sure to notify the landowners of any valuable or historic findings, or make some sort of arrangement before starting your hunt.
The best part of the day to metal detect is at dawn or right before. This is when the ground is still soft from overnight and morning dew, so digging and retrieving is much easier. Also, there is very little foot traffic and road traffic at this time so you won’t be bothered by sounds of cars or people interfering with your search space.
It is wise to check with your county for laws pertaining to metal detecting on public property like parks and beaches. There may be some minor paperwork, registering, or rule sot follow, all of which may vary from county to county.
