Default New to the addiction

Just a quick hello from Colorado. New to the hobby and already love it!

Hunted a State Park for my first time off my property and found 19 aluminum arrows and 27 cents clad.

Turned the arrows in to the park ranger and it turns out they belong to a summer kids program. Needless to say I know have unlimited access to the grounds!!

Good hunting!!!

Welcome from Winnsboro, South Carolina !!!!

Congrats on making a positive impression on the park ranger !

You seem like you should already realize this, but always refill your plugs and take any trash with you. (The detectorists out there who do leave unfilled holes and trash can ruin permissions for the rest of us)
