wow! thanks guys. there are a lot of old buildings around here in Brazil indiana and 3 parks as well as a 4h park and highway 40 cut's right through the center of town. which is also historic. i have been doing a lot of reading on detecting and learned creek beds can also be a good place to detect and ball parks and the like. oh and my detecter is a garret ace 300. thanks for the welcome and the advice i'll keep everybody updated
i am brand new to metal detecting. used my detector once at a small park in the town i live in. had a couple of targets one was a pulltab the other i couldn't get out of the ground. i realy want to get into the detecting bug but not sure how to find out who owns property that looks promising and asr realy old. any help would be awsome.
