    Hey fellow Enthusiasts!
    Wanted to introduce myself...I live in Minneota and have been m/d there on private family property for a while now with a garrett ACE 250 ( having so much fun) , however, I have been in the Maryland area for about a month now and will be here another month. I got antsy to m/d and went and bought a white's DFX 300. I am very anxious to use it. From the quick research I have done it sounds like here in Maryland the only places you can metal detect is on public beaches in the a.m. So frustrating as there is so much rich history here, and its Civil War week on the history channel! Does anyone know if you still need to get a permit to detect on Maryland beaches in the a.m.? Thanks, and I look forward to getting more involved with this forum.

    Welcome to Treasure Quest from Pennsylvania.

    I am not familiar with Maryland laws concerning metal detecting.

    Thanks guys!

    Thanks everyone for all the warm greetings.

    Mikey I take it you do underwater metal detecting? I am very interested in that aspect. I may have to talk to you at some point about the specifics of it all. I am sure that requires entirely different equipment and I have already spent quite a sum of money on what I have. I suppose I should master what I have first. Thanks again.

    Glen What do the metal detecting laws look like in PA? I just may have to head up that way and do my detecting. I'm getting discouraged with the laws here in Maryland. Thanks for the welcome.

    Welcome to TQ! I would simply look for a place that you want to dig and then ask permission. If the property is privately-owned, you can dig it with permission. Or, call Town Hall for munincipal properties. Good Luck!.....Rick

    Pretty fair. Most municipal parks permit detecting, but check a list of the park rules first. Most all parks post a list.

    State parks by permit only, but the permits are easy to obtain.

    Gettysburg National Military Park, don't get caught with a detector on GNMP property. They will arrest and confiscate your machine. Detecting there is a huge no-no.

    Private property is still the way to go. That's where the best finds are. All you need is permission.
