    Great find Larson...We got about an inch here in the Red River Valley too. One of fields I like to hunt isn't planted
    yet, so hopefully the rain "exposed" some artifacts and they are waiting to be found. Your finds continue to amaze me.

    I can't get a single sound out of any of the whistles I have found and I wish I could

    I have read that the traders were amazed by the amount of different sounds the little Indian kids could make with these

    they could imitate birds and all kinds of stuff

    I was going to ask if you could get any sound out of those. Really cool whistles.

    Now that is a very cool artifact. We find Bone Flutes here in my area, but nothing that looks like that. Ours are long and slender with 4 to 6 holes drilled into them. My buddy has one that he can play Mary Had A Little Lamb on. lol

    Here 's a picture of one.

    Wow Dorkfish, that is a nice flute, I have never seen one before

    perhaps the natives had more musical talent than the natives around the Dakotas

    how many flutes have you found?

    I have about a dozen whistles, but no flutes

    That is the only whole one I have, but I have numerous pieces of them.

    Fantastic find. I have never heard of anybody ever finding a whistle in south Georgia. What part of the country are you from?

    Americus, I am from the central Dakotas

    I have about ten whistles a couple with engraving on them
