Default Texas knapping rock?

Anyone near Llano Texas that would allow me to stop by and gather a 5 gallon bucket of rock for knapping arrowheads? I won't be coming thru until the end of February but I want to get some things lined up. I am traveling to San Antonio to visit a Marine buddy that took a head shot in Viet Nam that paralized him.

You can answer me VIA a PM if you like and thanks.

TTT No invites yet. I will be driving from El Paso so any spots between there and San Antonio would be OK as I am not in a hurry.

I live in Sonora. If you are going from El Paso to SA on I-10, you go right thru here. I have a ton of rock, but I donít think any of it is flint. You would be welcome to look to see if any of it would work though!!!

If your dates line up with mine I can take you to a spot I call the flint quarry. It is one hour each way from I-10. Pandale road exit.

The Texas knapping rock is "Chert".

Bisch, I bet you have at least some on your place.

There's tons of it on Carl's place.
Billy Berger hauls a bunch of it out of every time he is there .
I watched Billy & Thad knapping with it last time I was down. Pretty cool.

Check the "cut-through"hillsides between Ft. Stockton to Ozona especially those from Live Oak draw into Ozona lot of rocks in those areas just laying around up on the hills most baseball to softball sized, sometimes you'll find one up to basketball sized. Can't give you exact locations, it's been 10-12 years since I've been down there pokin' around.

Bisch: Been reading your archery posts for a few years. Would be nice to meet you regardless if you have rock or not.

tex4k: appreciate the tip. I would think all the property is private and respect that and their fences.

You've got about 25' between the fence and the shoulder of the road!

I looked up some pictures last night. It looks like the stuff that we have. In fact, I believe that there are several truckloads of it that was bladed out of the caliche hauled in to touch up the road. I have a line of it a half mile long.

I hate it when the dirt guys get into a bunch of it when they're road building, they bust up sometimes some really nice chert and that stuff will go through a tire in a blink.

I'm in southeast Coke County: 4601 FM 2662 Bronte, TX 76933

It may be too far out of the way for you, but keep it in mind. My cell phone is 325 812-3254. I have the entire west side of the lane rip-rapped with rocks ranging from fist size on up to volleyball size and also a small ridge where the hill slopes quickly where a lot of smaller stuff is laying everywhere.

I know. Not sure where you are around Sonora. I asked Louis Huckaby where your place is but he didn't really know.
