From the looks of it it's seen some use, they kept it on that arrow as long as they could. I said arrow because that's what that one actually is. Most arrow heads run between a 1/4 to 3/8 ths inch between the notches. AtlatL points run anywhere from 1/2 inch to 1 inch between notches.

I believe that's an Elko corner notch, very common to this area.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

We found hundreds in Missouri mostly in one field. They were 1/2 " to 1" long. We called them bird points.

Reworked Palmer would be my guess. Neat point...regardless.

Having that on an arrow would seem awfully tough to kill much.

I don’t know how they survived

^^^^

Not really. The points I used to hunt with (while larger) were quite effective at taking deer, javelina and hogs. It doesn't take much of a point to cause the damage necessary for a bilateral pneumothorax. You just need to get it through both lungs. Lungs collapse (or fill with blood), animal dies.

In Texas...a hunting point (Broadhead) is required to be 7/8" minimum width to be legal, otherwise I would opt for something narrower. But it doesn't take a large projectile point to deliver a fatal wound. Plenty of deer die each year from being gored by a relatively dull antler.

20 years ago, I found a bird point. I bought some leather shoestring and attached it to the back of my cowboy hat. Still have that hat and point hanging in my office.

The small, fine points are actually the most difficult to make and don't survive well.

It's really unique to find one fully intact and one that was purpose made and not reworked until it became small.

I'd much rather knap a large point than a small one.
