SURFACE HUNTING INDIAN ARTIFACTS
Is rescuing them from eventual destruction by
nature or man!!
...and even then, some can be tricky!!
It could be whole.....
Better dig it out....
LOOKING GOOD SO FAR.....
You can't win em' all........
At least the ear has been sharpened off anciently, and it's not a fresh break...
Cleanup shot. This pink point with white splotches matches my hand pretty good.
Surface hunting arrowheads is finding Indian artifacts that have been uncovered by natural or man-made erosion. Surface hunting is RESCUING arrowheads from certain destruction. If no one is there to pick up a recently uncovered artifact, it will be damaged and eventually destroyed.
Eroded artifacts will be moved by water currents, waves, weather, wildlife, tractors and bulldozers; eventually they will be broken to pieces. It's up to you to get out there and
SAVE AN INDIAN ARTIFACT TODAY!
The photos below contain an arrowhead in the picture.
Can you find it?
This delicate, crispy sharp arrow point was exposed by wave action. How long would it have lasted when the water came back up and moved it around in the rocks? GOOD SAVE!
This next one is for advanced level hunters- there is a side notch arrow point fully visible in the gravel below.
It's a tough one to spot, but this little bird point appears in the first photo. Look just right of center and down a little bit in the first pic.
That's some serious Where's Waldo!
I spotted the first arrowhead within a few minutes of looking..the tip was poking out.
Indian artifacts were sticking out all over the place.
This next one was just showing a piece of its base, and the brown flint matched the mud, making it difficult to spot.
It's a lot easier to spot the white ones!!
I Hunted right at the waterline, and flipped out this nice drill and a couple others, too. Six complete points is a great hunt!!
I had to learn what types of rock are most common in my area for artifacts to be made from, so I know what colors to look for....
