Is American Diggers Hurting Metal Detecting?

Spike TV recently released a new series called American Diggers.  The show features competitive relic and treasure hunting with typical reality TV flare.  Ric Savage heads up American Savage, an artifact recovery company that hunts private lands for possible valuables.  It has been interesting to hear the banter on various metal detecting forums.

Most folks I seem to read think that this show does hurt the hobby.  I’m not sure.

What do you think?

    Just found your page and have spent the last 2 hours reading all you have posted . I was introduced into metal detecting about 5 yrs ago and ant looked back since. I started out with a bounty hunter tracker IV an then upgraded to the bounty hunter land ranger. Am now waiting for the fed ex truck to deliver my AT Pro this week. Thanks for your awesome unbiased review on the at pro it just solidifies my decision on that purchase. Wish you were close to me i believe I could learn massive amounts of knowledge from you ….happy hunting to ya may your batteries stay full and your digger stay sharp my friend
