Prospecting at Coker Creek
« on: June 17, 2015, 10:17:51 PM »
Hi everybody. My wife and I are new to the GPAA. We can't make the festival but we're going to come up on Sunday. If anyone with more experience than us, that would be anyone, anyone at all, all tips on where to prospect would be greatly appreciated.

There will be a lot of chapter members there on Sunday to help you out.
I would suggest as a new member you try out the Doc Rogers area of Coker Creek.

Do we need to go to the ranger station to get a permit for Doc Rogers field and if so where is the ranger station located at.

No permit is needed to hand prospect (Class 1) at Doc Rogers. The Rangers no longer issue the permits.
Just read the rules here on the forum.
Be aware that after July 1st, the rules will be changing. We will post them when we get them.
Good luck,
Chuck
