We will be moving to Wichita Falls in Oct...
Will be MD with my grandkids & looking for good spots such as Lake Wichita & city parks...
Not sure of the rules or laws in these places...
Maybe we can get together for a hunt...

I hunted Sheppard AFB around 1989. Used to be a small park across from the Airman's club that was very rewarding. I was back in the area around 2011, old club is long gone as is the park.

I found a few silvers and a host of other stuff under this jet. Untold class pictures and was a prime meeting spot in the early 1980's. Targets were very deep, grass was very thick. The median across the street was even more rewarding. I would suggest a weekend, early Sunday during the holidays when most folks are on holiday.

Default New to MD. Looking for an adventure near by.

Me and my husband have very recently started MD. We're trying to find any places around that would be good besides our front yards. We can't seem to be able to find out what parks or areas we can or cannot MD at.

Have you checked the city park's dept. website, for their park rules ? In today's world, there's hardly a city around anymore that doesn't have a website, and their municipal code, park rules, etc.... on-line. And the key-word search works great; Just type in "metal" and/or "detector", etc.... If you look it up, and don't see anything that says "no metal detecting", then presto: It's not prohibited.

There need not be express "allowance". Anymore so than you'd think there has to be an express "frisbee flying allowed here" law.

Naturally use due discretion, pick low-traffic times, avoid busy-body lookie-lou gripers, etc... Because detecting has connotations afterall. Ie.: don't go waltzing over beach blankets, or carrying shovels around bored archies or gardeners, etc....
