My name is Randy Leonard

My daughter and I live in Central Michigan. I have been metal detecting for roughly 6 years. I currently use a Whites DFX.
I chose Whites machines because I like the metal construction, and the balance feels right me. The adjustability of the DFX allows me to go places some other machines can't. Like many other die hard detectorists, I don't get out as often as I'd like, but I do manage 20 or so hours a week when the weather permits.
My primary hunt sites are local parks and schools. I also like hunting the yards of older homes in the area. When I'm not hunting, I enjoy reading sites and forums dedicated to this hobby.

I will always check federal, state, county and local laws before searching. It is my responsibility to know the law.

I will respect private property and will not enter private property without the owners permission. Where possible, such permission will be in writing.

I will take care to refill any holes and try not to leave any damage.

I will remove and dispose of any and all trash and litter that I find.

I will appreciate and protect our inheritance of natural resources, wildlife, and private property.

I will, as an ambassador for the hobby, use thoughtfulness, consideration and courtesy at all times.

I will work to help bring unity to our hobby by working with any organization of any geographic area that may have problems that will limit their ability to peacefully pursue the hobby.

I will leave gates as found.

I will build fires in designated or safe places only.

I will report to the proper authorities any individuals who enter and/or remove artifacts from federal parks or state preserves.
