Reasonable use of Metal Detectors in Wisconsins water's

729 Signatures Goal: 1,000

The WI DNR has imposed a form of martial law in that they ignore the Wisconsin Public Trust Doctrine and by doing so, violates protected reasonable recreational use of the over 1 Million acres of waterway in Wisconsin without any representation from the community. Our sister states have very clear defined policies for metal detecting in state parks. We respectfully ask that you submit an injunction on the rule change by the DNR archaeologist prohibiting responsible use of metal detectors and return to the permit system that has worked for years. Mr Frank, we are asking that you please revisit this important Rule change so to help safeguard the freedoms of the people of Wisconsin to use the parks in any form of responsible recreation.

This is being promoted by the 1000's of responsible Metal Detectors in Wisconsin and other States. Also included are the many businesses who rely on the sales of Metal detectors and their accessories. This is also supported by the many citizens who have had their personal items returned to them.

    I would like to continue to use the parks the way it was. It was working fine. This I feel ...is a infringement of my rights and I will fight for this all the way. I pay taxes for these parks and the people running them are public servants who should be protecting my rights. Not taking them away... I am upset about this.

    I have used my metal detector at Devils Lake around 20 years ago , I got permission from one of the Rangers , He checked my Equipment to see that I had a core remover and not a shovel ,I found a couple nickles and did not leave a trace of disturbed soil , I( can just imagine the mess some people would leave with out a core remover , at the same time I feel metal detecting should be allowed providing the the person has the right equipment to remove and replace a soil plug without doing damage to the area , after all we have to pay for a park sticker and most of us do less damage then your everyday visitor or camper
