I live in Connecticut and have been waiting for Jan 1 2024 to apply for a NY State Metal Detecting Permit online. It will be rough driving 2 hrs but Id sincerely like to try some of the parks and beaches. Do I just need to one permit from the NY state site or are there individual permits required for each county? If Lou or Merrill or anyone else could give me the short answer on this, Id appreciate it greatly! I just joined not one but two detectorist clubs here in CT but they seem more like social clubs than anything and there is no talk of actual live digs just seeded hunts which can be fun but I need more... thanks everyone.
