    Can people go into mountains, forrests, parks and metal detect or do you have to get permission from city and forrest ranger?

    A good entry level detector would be a whites m6, fisher f4, Those are around $400.00 $600.00 Most people start off with a ace 150 cost around $150.00 then move on up to something better.

    What about ghost towns, do you have to get a permit?

    Watch "The Dectorists" on Nextflix.

    Truly a lot of fun and you learn some cool things about the craft.

    The way our crazy laws are. I would definitely get permission. I hunt parks, schools, and private property. Those areas are pretty much a go.

    I haven't seen any "no metal detectors allowed signs" at any of the parks I've been to; however, some park officials may get upset if you start digging holes looking for stuff.

    They usually chase metal detectors off of civil war battlefields

    You will have to find private land
