First River hunt of the season

It finally got hot enough to chase me from the land to the water in search of Civil War lead. This spot has been pretty well picked over but it is still good for a handful or so of bullets. My first find wasn't a bullet at all, however. It was an eagle-I coat button! I scored some more lead and a brass valve stem to an old Model T and them my Garrett ProPointer AT decided to die. Luckily, it was still under warranty by a few months and the good folks at Garrett made it all better after a few weeks. This is the second time I have had a Garrett pointer die just before the warranty period ended. I am really happy they have the 2-year warranty on their pointers!

I was bummed that my hunt was cut short but with the weather in Mid-MO being slightly cooler than a bear hug from the devil himself, I'll be back soon.

Nice finds! A quick question if you don't mind...does your state require a permit to metal detect in rivers? They do here, in Virginia. Lakes and beaches no problem. I was thinking about trying some river hunting. Thanks.

Thanks! No, Missouri does not require a permit to hunt streams or rivers. Army Corps of Engineers lakes may be detected but a lot of restrictions apply. State park swim beaches may be detected if you have a free permit from the Department of Natural Resources. City/County lakes may be detected so long as there is no local ordinance to the contrary.

Thanks for the reply. I just found out recently about the permit requirements here. I guess the state doesn't get enough money for it's coffers thru all the taxes they have in place now. :ranting: Good luck hunting!

Thanks, you too! Sorry to hear that VA is becoming fee-and-tax-happy.
