Rock Hunting

I work cattle today at the farm.
Since I was out there I walk some hot spots for arrowheads
Here is what I found today

2 mint arrowheads 2 broken points
The red one is a broken drill point

My brother and I search for arrowheads, moss rocks, and nice pieces of lighter knot in the woods and creek beds when we get a chance. We hardly ever find pieces like you did. Looks like that's a hotspot. I'd go back there numerous times.

I have a Camp site on the farm . Where Indians made camp
The game they killed they would clean them along the creek and they never reused the arrowheads if it killed something

Yes they lay around in creeks or bottom ground around there camp sites .
If know where there camps are you will find points/crop Tools/knives/Tomahawk/Waraxe/spear points

I think in my creek on the farm I pulled out 50 mint arrowheads 200 broken points 5 mint knife blades

Its a hobby they worth good money but I will never sell them
Best one I have is worth $800-$900 to a collector I had guy offer me $600 for it, I said Nope!!!
I know guys make good money on points.
