Sometimes Metal Detectorists get a bad rap because of a few bad apples that sneak onto federally protected land to metal detect. There will always be those that press their luck, but any true metal detectorist that I know of follows a Code Of Ethics.
If you’re a veteran of the hobby, or a New detectorist, we can all benefit from knowing and practicing the metal detecting code of ethics.
•Always fill in your holes, including plowed fields, sand pits, beaches and in water.
•Study, learn, appreciate and protect our heritage of natural resources, wildlife, and private property.
•Be thoughtful, considerate, courteous and respectful of others at all times.
•Protect the metal detecting hobby by being a good will ambassador at all times.
Together we can all make a difference in how the community views metal detectorists as a whole by following a few common sense rules.
