Code Of Ethics

Based the Code of Ethics as written by the "Federation of Metal Detecting & Archaeology Clubs"

I will always check federal, state, county and local laws before searching.  It is my responsibility to "know the law".

I will respect private property and will not enter private property without the owner's permission, where possible, such permission will be in writing.

I will take care to refill all holes and try not to leave any damage.

I will remove and dispose of any and all trash and litter that I find.

I will appreciate and protect our inheritance of natural resources, wildlife and private property.

I will, as an ambassador of the hobby, use thoughtfulness, consideration and courtesy at all times.

I will work to help bring unity to our hobby by working with any organization of geographic area that may have problems that will limit their ability to peacefully pursue the hobby.

I will leave gates as found.

I will build fires in designated or safe places only

I will report to the proper authorities any individuals who enter and or remove artifacts from federal parks or state preserves.
