Hello from across the pond!

Post by trichmond3256 » Thu Apr 04, 2019 5:42 pm

I live in Memphis, Tennessee (home of The Blues and birthplace of Rock and Roll). I will be coming to Europe (France, Belgium and Germany) in June. I will be looking for places to hunt while I'm there.

Any tips/advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers!

Hi.
Not sure I am going to be much direct help, but would suggest that individual countries may well have individual laws and protocols in relation to permissions and public access.

I suspect that you will have to research each country/area individually to establish what is required to allow you on which land.

Possibly the easiest way may be to contact directly local (to exactly where you are staying) clubs and impose on their good-will.

Any way you wish to do it, it would probably need to be written in French/German/etc to elicit proper responses.

Good Luck
Regards from The Slapster, Cornwall, UK

Hi, If you know where you are going to be in the UK can I suggest you look in the menu l;/ clubs. Contact the nearest ones and see if they would extend a courtesy to one of our cousins on one of their organised digs. Good luck.

Hey Trichmond & welcome to the forum. ::g

I live in France and you can detect over here but you will need the permission of the land owner (farmer) etc and an oral agreement is fine no need for official papers or a contract. (simply put just go and ask around in farms etc until you get a yes). Farmers are usually friendly and permissions are easily got.

IMPORTANT NOTE: there are a few provances(departemants)in France that you are not allowed to detect in due to the 1st and 2nd World war and are actually quite dangerous places to detect so best too stay away from them. (it is also considered as pillaging historic battle sites and can lead to a hefty fine).But dont worry there is still the 3 quaters of france left to dig up... :D Good luck and happy hunting.

Just wondering what detector will you be using. For tips i think that detecting techniques are the same as stateside maybe the soil is different in france and you might have to tweak a little for optimal penetration and reactivity. (ground settings). best tip i can give is use the time over here and profit from Europes 3000 yrs history and get some realy realy good finds. :D ::g

Below is a PDF link to the prohibited Departemants in France.

Thank you so much! I am using a Garrett AT Pro. Ground balancing shouldn't be a problem. I really appreciate the information regarding permitted zones for detecting!!!!
