Hey I've been looking through the metal detecting section and it looks like a lot of fun. Only problem is that I live in a bigger city(Omaha,NE) and have no idea where I would look. There are fields and such I'd like looking in but wouldn't want to dig up the nice grass. I also don't know what I would need to start detecting. I'm looking to spend $200 or less to get started and any advice is welcome.

Hi Glyth From a fellow cornhusker !!

I was born In Grand Island but have not lived in NE for many years now,, I do however have relation all over the state !!

If I lived in Omaha,, and wanted to get in the learning curve of my detector,, while I reseached the area for better places meaning older coins !! I would probly try and get on the University football field, city parks, and some of the swimming holes along the river .

about 40 miles north of you is a little town called Herman,, I had some relation that lived there, He found V nickels , walkers and Indian Head cents in his yard after the rains,, so I know that there is good hunting there .

Take a look at some local historical maps,, seewhat you can come up with, If you need help just holler !!

So is it ok to dig in city parks or at a school soccer field or something? I just don't want anyone on my case if they see me. I suppose digging tools for metal detecting might make it easy to replace what you dig up?

Hi Glyth

Metal Detecting is allowed in many public areas,, but its always a good Idea to check Regs first,, the College field I would ask permission !!

Swimming holes seldom have any restrictions since they are a public activity area.as are many local parks .

always fill the holes and leave minimal traces is the best polocy no matter where you detect !!

No problem Glyth !!

I hope you get your detector soon and that you find some really good stuff!!

If you do your research I'm sure that you will !! I have always wanted to detect NE but so far have not had the opportunity,, If you get the chance check out some of the stuff up around Stafford,, I know for a fact that there were many homesteads up in that area !! Its where my family Homesteaded !!
