Be honest, be kind, and be respectful In the hobby of metal detection, just as in any area or profession, there are rules that need to be followed that establish certain limitations. But the most important rule and code should come from the one doing the metal detecting. Basic ground rules such as: thou shall not cheat; or thou shall conduct one's self with integrity, are a necessity.
Respect for already existing rules is groundwork for future success in metal detecting. Plus, it is also important to help your peers and friends follow the same ground rules as you do. Remember that it is just as important to take care of your buddy as it is to take care of yourself.
Remember everyone's right
Just as you have the right to conduct metal detection on a particular property, it is appropriate that you also acknowledge and respect the rights of an individual to protect their personal and private property. Remember, the higher the coil is above the surface the more depth you will lose. If they've got a old coin that is 6 in. below the surface, and your detector can detect 8 in., and the coil is 3 in. above the ground, you will miss that target. If the coil had been directly upon the ground you would be able to detect that target.
