All parks in San Antonio are now off limits.....for now. Word is, someone with a metal detector was poking around and found something "of historic significance" in Conception Park....where it was off-limits to begin with. I don't know what the guy found, but they sure hushed it up in a hurry. (probably to discourage further metal detecting there). I imagine you could find all kind of cool stuff in the older, historic parks...especially around the missions, but they will lock you up and throw away the key if caught.

Any one have a used/ good starter model for sale/rent?

My friend has a huntin lease up in the utopia area...deep in the brush, we discovered a VERY old rock wall about a quarter mile long...then there is an area where there are several pilars of similar design about 8 feet tall, and then there is what looks like the rock walls of a small house and there are trees 50-100 years old growing in the middle of the house...so it is all very old. I am sure there has to be some very old relics in the area. This area is very hidden back in the hills and there is no roads or newer structures anywhere near these ruins. We heard from a neighboring rancher that he property was once own by a group of nuns.


So if you have a decent used model for sale or rent please let me know.

I called the parks police dept last Friday and they said with a permit you could use the metal detector, however - now we've gotta call each time before going out. Hmm. Why issue permits if we need to call each time? Isn't that pretty much a verbal permit?
Anyways - Primo, are you interested in a metal detector operator as well?! Sounds like an adventure!

Probably not.....I have several of those myself. They are fairly common to find around here. Nice sized one though!

Default metal detecting

Received a dector as a gift- downloaded permit for parks.

Where would be a good place to start? also-can they be used at the beaches-say Mustang Island and areas?
What club would be recomended to join?

Thanks
