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

Event Description:    To Benefit the Handicap Children of Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, TX and help supply needs for those Children and the Camp. We are very proud to have a chance to fulfill those needs and bring smiles on the Children faces. We were proud to make our annual visit to the Camp 2018 and work with many of the kids so to teach them how to enjoy the hobby of treasure hunting with a metal detector finding the foreign coins that so many of you donate every year for those kids. Showing them how to enjoy the hobby even with their disabilities helps them get out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors that many of us take for granted. We invite all to come and experience this great time with the children that we have enjoyed for over 20 years and have felt the change it has made in our own daily life's. Please remember those in-expensive foreign coins donations, for you would never believe the big smiles on those children faces when they have found/dug one for the very first time. Hope to see many of you there!
