Also, I had several 5gal buckets of brokes I finally had to dump out. It just got too much to lug around.
It's the Callaghan ranch 100,000+ acres lowfence heaven. My buddy has a spot on it and I go down with him. If I had a spot on it I would live there for 4 months out of the year!🙈 This is his 2nd ur on it. Like I said we hunt in the morning and evening so I only look for a 1hr or 2 mid day😪

Those are neat. i am not familiar with types from up there. They are quite similar to Archaic types from Texas though and likely the same age. 3-6,000 years old.

Was wondering if anyone could identify these. I'm not sure if they're anything but I'm thinking maybe some kind of axe and then 2 beginner points made by a Indian kid in training?

After following Garguy and Johnny's digs it has motivated me to do some looking. I found this today in a creek by the house, it looks like the bottom half of a broken one to me what do y'all think? It's tough hunting here in NE Montgomery county thanks

Ok, I have been interested in arrowheads for awhile and decided to do a search and came across this thread.
My lease is in Mason County and we have a couple creek beds and a big canyon I call it.
Where do I even start to look???

I have had a frame of broke arrowheads in my office for a long time. Not many folks ever have a comment about them. I decided to bring a grind bowl to the office for display. For whatever reason everybody comments and wants to know about it. I was even asked if I made it to look that way lol. I thought I would post pics for the masses.

Went to Edwards County this weekend. Hiked up the mountain to the 'Indian Cave' as we call it. Must have been a cave they sheltered in during bad weather, absolutely tons of flint up in there. Really need to do some digging in there.


However, I did find a nutting stone. Has the little craters on both sides of the rock.

And the cave (which reeks of aoudad ram)

Awesome find! That cave is just itching for a wiggle pick and a shovel. Keep us updated if you do any digging.

Yep maybe he found it in a gas station at Johnson city. If he persists in sticking to the story that he found it, maybe someone set him up and planted it where he'd find it. looks modern to me also. That cave looks awesome!

Man I thought so too.. But when he told me he found it on the ranch road, I thought authentic. After seeing how you phrased your comment asking for more pics, I pretty much knew. You guys have the true trained eye that I'm still working on.

I'm going to grill him on it and see if he is pulling a fast one or really did find it.

I know the cave has been dug before, as my uncle did some digging and found a cola can about 1ft down. There is also an old sifter up there and two shovel heads, (not my uncles- from previous owners 12+ years ago).

However I don't think it has been truly 'excavated' and all points/artifacts found. The nutting stone was found amongst a pile of other similar sized rocks, so it has certainly been looked over a time or two.

More pictures of the cave. In picture 1, you can see there is a space that looks like it was carved into. The reason I think that is it is not full of holes and cavernous like the rest of the cave, but much smoother. That little nook is also the spot that would be most shielded from the N wind. Perhaps an old warrior and his woman would hole up in there.

Picture 4 shows what the walls of the cave are like, very porous limestone loaded with fossils. I'm hoping one of the higher holes has a cache of Clovis points in it that hasn't been found

Edit: I looked at all the larger rocks in the cave; but **** it, is that something dished out in bottom left of pic 2!? I need to go back...

My folks bought us a place in SW Edwards County and I found our first point on the surface in a dry creek bed. Although I have hunted arrowheads some since I was a kid, I'm a novice so wondered if there is anything noteworthy about this one. Thanks!

The General...yes, that does look like something that is dished out. Go back, get that sucker and get pics!

Sporting Stan, that is a worn out point so hard to tell exactly what it was...maybe a possible Ensor. Great find none the less! That area is loaded with old camps along the creeks n river (Nueces) out that way.
