When it comes to public land; The experience has been a dispiriting 
succession of all too frequently broken promises that all too often 
translated into loss of habitat for a vanishing species – the 
recreational Rock Hound and Meteorite Hunter!

For all practical purposes; Meteorite hunting on public land is now an 
extinct avocation here in the U.S. You pick up or sell a single rock, 
you are most likely breaking federal law unless your searches are 
limited to private land.  Online sells of meteorites found on public 
land can be tracked forever and will be used for political purposes, 
especially when it comes to protecting the often abused and twisted 1906 
Antiquities Act.
