Hunts & Events

Organized hunts and treasure-hunting shows are a great way to pick up tips to make you a more successful hunter, meet fellow hobbyists and even check out that new piece of equipment you have had your eye on.  Listed below are some upcoming events across the United States.  If there is one planned for your area or in a location that you can combine a family vacation to attend, mark your calendar and start making plans . . . you will be glad you did and as many have found, attending hunts can be highly addictive!

NOTE: If you are involved in an upcoming event that you want to let FMDAC members and visitors to our website know about, let us know and we will get the information published on this page
