The other club, who can’t be named, were on a permission of mine a Few weeks back, closest one to home I’ve got tbh and good for an hour or two if I want out, big field half was ploughed and sewn other half in stubble, anyway I jumped in after they’d been hoping they’d cleared some junk for me and come across a piece of iron three times this size, big plate of it that had been removed from its hole and just sat in the sewn field just waiting for the combine next year, pissed me right off and could have well lost me a permission but as Jim said what’s the point in even saying anything  :-X >:(

The other thing that I noticed on Sunday was the number of filled in holes where the findings of the original signal were just re-buried. Pure idleness and not in the spirit of the hobby?

I came across a couple of the refilled holes too, I can understand if the iron etc is really deep and too large to pull out and therefore its not an issue to livestock or ploughs hitting it and getting damaged but outwith that its a poor respect for the club and the kind farmer who gave you permission to be there and I hope whoever is doing it becomes even lazier and gives up the hobby altogether soon!!

I agree, sadly :(
This has gone on in metal detecting since time immemorial & I’ve been on a lot of digs on and off over the years. Newbies need to be continually reminded of the “ettiquette” - I don’t understand why they don’t research this for themselves. Maybe cos we seem to be living in a “spoon feeding” society where folks think others are responsible for their actions. Lately, I’ve noticed some not using headphones & the noise on the field has been driving me nuts  :o

A very good point Bruno as I have found lots of wee bits of scrap lying on the surface that have clearly been dug up and thrown away  >:(  Should be a rule no bag no dig

Agree with this. I too came across of few holes like the photo. The Doric Diggers outings used to have boxes so people could drop their scrap finds into the boxes at lunchtime and the end of the day. From memory there was one box for scrap metal and the other for lead that could have some scrap value, with any proceeds going to charity. Apologies my son and I did not have headphones last week. I've sorted this and all three of us will have headphones tomorrow. O0
