I know my contribution!
Anyone in here curious about the hobby of metal detecting??
I own three of them; two VLF machines, and a waterproof pulse machine.
Along with digging gear, pin pointer, etc.
( If anyone understands that jargon )
I can bring them along and show people the basics if ya'll want
We wouldn't be leaving any holes, so you won't be able to tell I was even there.
I've seen some nice find's in campground lakes from people spilling over in kayaks n such.
AW crap...never mind.....
Except for sites that occur in major recreation areas, the Forest Service does not publish the exact locations of its heritage resource sites. This measure is meant to prevent the intentional vandalism and looting of these resources. The use of metal detectors is strictly prohibited on the Ocala National Forest.
It is illegal to “dig, remove, injure or destroy any historic or prehistoric objects, ruins or sites” on federal land. “Violators subject to arrest, a maximum fine of $20,000.00, and or imprisonment.”
The Antiquities Act of 1906 and Archeological Resources Protection Act of 1979.
