Wow! What a nice looking group of arrow heads.  Do you find those just by walking around or do you have a way of detecting for them?

I found them in a plowed field by tha Buffalo River
after a rain.

Tha rain washes away enough dirt to expose many
flakes. Turn over tha flakes, and ever so often one
will be an arrowhead.

If you are in a good place, that is.

I lOOk for diamonds like that too.

Never found a diamond though.... Sad

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog

Nice little collection!! My father used to have to work in a field and he had found many in the field.  He had found an axe as well, and I believe a rock that was used to crush food up or so it seems.  The rock fits right into your hand, so that's how we saw it. 

But, yes I just usually walk along the field if a good rain comes along.  Or, you can also look at the bottom of small creeks and find them as well.

tabdog, and anyone interested;

There are a few simple rules in "looking" for this stuff:
A) find a spot that might have been open and useful as a 'lookout spot;'
B) look for lots of flakes;
C) you can often find imperfect and/or unfinished pieces;
D) dry locations are good.

This follows for stuff in the last 5000 years, I'm not sure if the same rules hold for older stuff like that nice Clovis type point.

Up here, when I was a teen, at my uncle's ranch, on the Peace river, I found literally hundreds of locations, along the river side of the flats, which were never covered with timber. The knapper could sit, work and watch for game and any river traffic (human.)

I used to have a nice collection but a trailer, which I was living in, got totally trashed by teens... lost most of everything, including a nice ladies 'purse gun.' However... I will live.

This all happened a few years ago, so I guess I survived.

Stone age stuff is like gold, its where you find it, hmmmm that sounds weird, but I have found pieces in the middle of nowhere, fixing a mechanical problem, or a flat tire.

Its for sure metal locators won't work but ground radar could, if it had good enough definition for small articles, anyone want to toss about some designs?

By flakes do you mean the little pieces of rock that are chipped off when the arrowhead was being made? Wouldn't these be so small and thus nearly impossible to find in the soil? Thanks, I hope to do some arrowhead hunting for the first time real soon.

I just thought about it a little more and think I figured it out   :Smiley   Just any little rock poking through is what I'm guessing is what was meant.

Yes. That is it Farm Digger.

Sometimes it will just be the little bit
that sticks out is the whole thing, but
more often there is more under the
ground. Some are pieces knocked off
a larger stone, others occure naturally.

I can not tell the difference until it has
some shape that looks man made.

Then it is an artifact.

But, Tabdog doo not know much other
than that.

Tabdog just knows that it was a true
stroke of luck that led me to that
Dalton point.

It is just one of those wonderful
suprises in life.

Happy Huntin,

Tabdog
