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.
