Default New Hunter spot burning.

There is a hunter on our beaches who has just discovered a productive area. For those in the know it's been good area to hunt. And, for this guy, he's new to this particular beach. Hat's off to him on figuring some stuff out. Here's the problem: The guy is posting the exact location on this forum, including pictures.

Of course it against accepted metal detecting etiquette to knowingly disclose someone's else's hunting site and just plain stupid to disclose your own. This beach is the home beach for a small group of hunters. Who, if this continues, will be sharing the beach with a lot more people.

Of course this guy is free to hunt anywhere he'd like, but burning us? What do we do about that?

Well at least I know it is not me, as I don't pictures. HA HA, I would pull the person aside and tell them not to post the "location" because he is ruining for the group and especially himself (because he seems to be a little selfcentered)

I think my pics speak for themselves (lots of trash!) and I don't disclose the location, so I know it's not me either!

Hey guys, if you're not posting pix and descriptions of locations, relax, it's not you. The beach location is in the northeast.

Most of us here understand the rules, written and unwritten, and this guy has been warned on another forum about outing the locations of others. We don't care that he hunts only that he posts the locations.

Come on guys are you for real? It's a public beach open to all and there is enough for everyone. And yes if someone asks me where I find my stuff I tell them. Most won't do the work to find the goodS!

What are we supposed to do? We don't own these spots and if they wish to share where they are hunting sooner or later there will be nothing but mumbles all around... we see that now from beaches further south... my camera stays at home when I hunt...

There is a hunter here in CT that loves posting the beaches she hunts... I went to that beach and cleaned house so to speak

I'm taking Terry Soloman there because he told me he was bringing the Tereso bikini girls on the hunt

And I'm going to tell everyone we were at Sherwood Island beach when they ask! You know, the one with the big green signs on the heavily traveled I-95 corridor?

Really come on now, it's not like you have some Canadian film crew putting together a reality show about detecting on your beach. Oh wait, that would be here in Florida!

I'm with you Phill, these are public beaches and we all pay taxes it's not like you have a claim on a peice of beach!

This aggressive behavior coupled with warnings and threats or worst yet vandalism or assault is just the thing that will invite more regulation from city and state on when and where we hunt. Just a thought....

Until this thread I wondered if that photo was used simply to mislead people..........now I know it isn't.
