"Dirt Fishing" in Idaho and out West

Brandon Neice ("Dr Tones") from Caldwell, Idaho (?) posted a comment on my text about reactions to the proposed "DigWars" TV show I made a while ago.  I was trying to see who he was, and among other things I came across his video channel on  "". These have to be among the most dynamic and exciting metal detecting videos ever made.... (yawn). Check them out, if you skip the boring bits, looking through all five current episodes of "Dirt Fishing America" will not take long:
1) Minelab CTX 3030 Finds BIG SILVER. Two Barber halves in one hole!
"Are you kidding me? Wow, 1896!!"
2) CTX 3030 Metal Detecting. GOLD & SILVER!
3) Minelab CTX 3030 finds deep old silver! Metal detecting.
4) Metal Detecting for treasure, coins and relics.
5) BIG SILVER coins and ghost town treasures!
"On this episode of Dirt Fishin America, Dr.Tones and Pickhead metal detect a historic property for big silver coins while Dirt Digler and wife scout some ghost towns and mining camps for an upcoming episode. The civil war relic they find will surprise you!"
 One would have thought, with all the bellyaching US coin collectors do about furriners not protecting sites, "ghost towns and mining camps out West"  in America would be protected from this kind of digging - even if the participants try to anorakise it by calling it "dirt fishing". Or is the fact that, as seems apparent from this video, they are not, part of the root of the problem?
