RECENT FINDS MARCH 2019:
Spring has sprung! March 31st- Birds are chirping and bugs are already flying. Lots of rain has water levels up high, but that means lots of erosion on fields that are already getting plowed.. My advice is to find some open dirt and hunt it after the rain! Willy B.

Graham Cave point dates back 8,000 years before present, also a salvage dig find from Springfield, Mo.
Couple of brokes found with the Dalton. The white one is a Smith point that was probably 4-5 inches long before broken!

Above: Calf Creek arrowhead that shows an impact fracture from use as a spear point!!!
ABOVE: This is a piece of red pipestone from Minnesota found near the Missouri/Arkansas border after recent floods. This cylinder is a drill core produced while drilling pipe stems. A hollow river cane is rotated in quartz sand and water slurry to drill the hole. A cylindrical column is produced from drilling, and then snapped off when complete, leaving the draw hole in place. This piece of red pipestone is proof that raw material was traded over long distances, and that pipes were then carved by local artists. AWESOME FIND!!!!
