Unfortunately, no. But he's coming down sometime this summer and I'm sure we'll be hittin' it again.
Hey Kev,, real sorry to hear about your disappointment. I learned a long time ago that,, "No" is a complete sentence. I didn't like it then and I like it even less today.
I don't know what I will do if someone were to ask me for permission to hunt.
I'm very interested in an 8 acre property in Pennsylvania. It has a well maintained farmhouse on it that was built in 1900.
The property borders a shallow river and I'm already fantasizing about buying a dredge. lol
Maybe a return visit to that landowner with those pictures of the schoolhouse along with a gift of an Indian Head Penny might soften him up. Can't hurt.
Just make sure to check out State laws and dredges. A lot of states now are making them illigal. Not all but out here they are.
They allow recreational panning and dredging in most state parks in Pennsylvania. If a stream or riverbed abuts your property, it shouldn't be a problem. When you purchase property , you have to know whether or not "Mineral Rights Convey." If they don't, , then you may have a problem
Give it 6 months then approach him again.
Suggest he take up Metal detecting as a hobby and offer to teach him the basics.
Then take a couple of machines along and viola, your in.
Yeah, getting permission from this guy is going to be a pretty "TALL order"
Yeah, I had thought about that Windman. My wife and I have the pic. In a book here. The property owner stated that he had never seen this pic, but I believe that it would still be a worthless try, but if nothing else, he could see what he's saying No to.
Yup, we are all criminals and desperado's......simply put, the very Worst of the Worst. So it seems.
......Ohhhh....I get it. You slid one in on me Sojo. Goodern'.
That was a great idea to ask the landowner to join in the fun. I 'll have to try that. When I'm denied permission, I leave my card and tell them that if they ever change their mind, this respectful hobbyist would appreciate a call. Nothing's happened yet, but you never know.
Well ya never know, the owner may have a change of heart, especially if they were to get to know you.
