Metal Detecting Code of Ethics

Metal Detecting is a fantastic hobby that we must protect by always following this simple code of ethics.  Not only should you yourself follow these code of ethics but you should stand to enforce them as well.  If you see other detectorists behaving badly say something, one bad apple can spoil the bunch in this case and the last thing we want to do is limit ourselves to where we can hunt by acting without respect for others property.
