Hi All,?

The new rules do seem pretty?balanced?and fair for those of us who do not sell their finds, however, those individuals who are operating from a more commercial point of view will be troubled more :(.?

The new rules do raise a few questions:

1) Are meteorites collected before the new rule also subject to the no sale / no barter restriction for 'casual' collectors?

2) Does hunting from a motor vehicle (pickup /motorcycle/quad) count as motorized collecting equipment?

3) I can see 10 pounds as a bag limit in your?possession, but it seems very hard to enforce for a per year limit.

4) What do you do if you find the big one? Is conversion to a commercial permit possible after you find the big one?

Best Regards,?
