What a crock, if you don't own the land, you should
not say a thing about someone else who hunts there, or
how they turn in their finds. Sonny has been one of
the most successful meteorite hunters to appear in the
last few years, and he deserves nothing but credit,
not harrassment. I have avoided hunting anywhere NEAR
California due to the rotten attitudes and "better

groups. Perhaps it is time for me to start hunting
some dry lake beds.

"Guess I'm just jealous that Sonny gets to do
things his way, and I'm forced to abide by
"guidelines", sure as heck sounds like harrassment to
me. Especially since the NOMCOM has cleared it up and
Sonny can do it any way he see's fit, so Verish is
wrong on that issue, and has just been proven wrong by
the nomcom themselves.
