That is correct all metro parks off limits. Start finding permissions or travel outside the city. State parks are off limits also.

I visit your area every couple weeks.
Bud of mine owns a plot of land bordering park area. He feeds the deer corn.
I go along for the ride and help him.

I'm right across the state line, in Lafayette,TN and work 5 days a week at the Petco in Bowling Green.

I've had the privilege to meet a few fellow detectorists, working in KY.

Might have to try the Paducah area, the wife claims she needs to go the national quilting museum...i will not be attending . So I might try swinging down there.

Looks like the CW activity in that area(After a brief limited search) looks to be repurposed.

Quilting, huh talk about nerdy hobbies. lol

CTX, Anfibio, V3i, Tejon----Most days I'm not sure if I'm a Metal Detectorist, or a Scrap Metal Relocation Engineer.

Hello from Frankfort. Been on hiatus from swinging the coil for several years and getting back into it. I have two permissions lined up when it gets cooler.

I'm new to detecting. Just got an AT Pro ordered and will be ready to get after it in the next couple weeks. I live in Crestwood which is right outside Louisville. If there are any in the area that want to get out sometime or maybe a local club that meets up give me a shout!
