While filling deer feeders last week I noticed a piece of flint on the ground. It seems to be a broken arrow or spear head. About two inches in length. I drew what I think the complete piece would look like. An early inhabitant of the land I hunt also used a bow!

Found a spear point (estimated 1/4 of the tip is broken off) about 10 yards from the feeder. Sorry no picture. It was made of the white "flint".

I'd love to hear the story that flint could tell.

You can always tell when you have a great hunting spot when you find indian artifacts around it. Tells the area has always had game.

More likely from an Atlatl than a Bow. Nice find. This will be a good year to look for them for most of us with all the bare ground from the drought. When it does rain, they should wash out. I caught myself looking for them over the weekend on my lease when I should have been in the stand bowhunting.

That's cool. They say they've been finding a bunch at Cedar Creek Lake, now that there's no water...
