We've already started issuing permits for the Boise Parks! Come to the Wampum Hut Friday, Saturday, Sunday, noon to six, for your Boise Parks metal detecting permit. If you're a beginner, come prepared to take a ten dollar test, with your metal detector in hand. Or, if you've been here before, swing by most any time between noon and six, for a three-dollar renewal of your permit. Looking forward to hearing about the new season!

Boise Schools Closed To Metal Detecting!
Sorry, friends, but it's offical: The Boise Schools are not interested in being part of the metal detecting permit system and have been quite adamant about NOT having treasure hunters on any school grounds.
The Wampum Hut is in the process of redesigning our metal detecting permit which is still good for Boise Parks. The removal is due to safety and legal concerns by the schools in having non-school personal metal detecting school grounds and property. Legally, you are NOT to metal detect on any Boise school grounds or property, posted or not, at any time. Any permits previously issued are null and void for metal detecting on Boise school grounds, and new permits will only be for Boise Parks and recreational areas. Please tell your friends and other treasure hunters in the area. Weather permitting, Conn's Wampum Hut will begin issuing and renewing metal detecting permits, starting April 18th. Please be patient. And DO get your permits, spring is almost sprung, the ground is nearly thawed, and YOU need to Keep On Beepin'!

Parks Permits To Be Issued Starting April 18th
Remembering a happy hunt last year at Expo Idaho! Club member Alice spent several happy hours with her son, finding goodies after the Western Idaho State Fair. Remember, if you'd like to hunt the fairgrounds, be sure to check in at the main office to ask permission. Sometimes they prefer you not metal detect certain areas if they are setting up for a big outdoor event. During, and right after, the Fair, the grounds are closed to metal detecting until the Fair Office lets us know when they are open again. Be sure to keep an eye on our website for that kind of information.
