    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, 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.

    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.
