Metal Detecting Hazzards
Metal detecting hazzards are all around. Most treasure hunters agree that compared to a lot of other hobbies and sports, metal detecting is probably one of the safest activities around. Nevertheless, a smart metal detectorist knows the importance of observing the following cautions:
- DO NOT hunt in areas where electric lines, gas/water pipelines, bombs or other explosives may be buried.
- NEVER trespass or hunt on private property without permission.
- NATIONAL and STATE parks, monuments, military sites, etc., are absolutely “off limits.”
- BE CAREFUL when digging toward a target where the underground conditions are unknown.
