Lots here in Australia are lucky that the Police / Heritage people etc are not active...

I see and hear of stuff that makes me cringe...  But so many just seem to think that any thing goes...

Does not matter where you are, Permission First if at all possible is the best Get Out Of Jail option there is...

Guys being arrested on National Battlefields has been going on for many years now. If you even drive just with a detector in your car on National Battlefield Park land there is a good chance you will be arrested and vehicle plus detector is gone.  The park rangers use NVG's to find detectorists at night.

As I read it, no amount of permission seeking would ever have got them onto that ground legally.

I've read hundreds of articles on the topic of seeking permission and the consensus of opinion is that it is a particularly unwise thing to do in any situation except when dealing with individual land owners.

Permission seeking has probably resulted in more areas being denied to detecting than areas denied through the leaving of open holes, rubbish left behind etc.

I'm a great believer in begging for forgiveness if a problem arises.
