    Quartz Arrowhead found in OK

    After searching Post Oak Creek off and on for years, I was losing hope on ever finding an arrowhead there before finding this one sticking out of a sand bar. My beloved Grandmother passed away a few days before and she knew how I loved to hunt for artifacts and minerals. Thanks Grandma, .

    Pretty cool. Have you ever checked out the area on the west side of Lake Lawtonka?

    Thanks for the replies. I was told that it would be hard to find any in the area I was searching, but the creek runs south from the Wichita Mountains so I am assuming that it washed down from there.

    I haven't checked out the area but I am always looking for new places to hunt. Is there potential there and if so, is it on public land RGINN?

    Lots of potential there walnuthead. About a thousand years ago a Plains Village was on the eastern slope of Mt. Scott and ran all the way down to where the lake is now. It's all public land, part federal and part I guess belongs to either the state or the city of Lawton. The bad thing is you probably can't legally pick up and keep artifacts found there. Still a great place to look around. Since you're down in the Lawton area and interested in history, I would recommend you get a copy of Wilbur S. Nye's book 'Carbine and Lance', which you can probably find at the Museum of the Great Plains there in Lawton. Gives you a lot of info on historic Indian and military activity in your area.

    Awesome information RGINN, thanks so much! I will get the book ASAP. Do you happen to know anything about The American Girl mine that is in this area?

    Hey RGINN. I finally got around to start reading Carbine and Lance and I just wanted to say thanks again for recommending it. I had no idea so many potential hunting sites were all around me, especially on Cache Creek. The sites around Devil's Canyon are mouth watering but I hear the landowners are pretty stern about letting people on their land. I have yet to find the part about the village on the east side of Mt. Scott, but I am sure I will come across it soon as this book is so interesting, it is hard to put down. I am truly looking forward to trying to traverse the sleep slopes of Cache Creek and do some bank hunting. Thanks again and I will keep you informed if I hit a nice find.

    Nice find , your grandma guided you to that one , I have a similar story my dad passed a away 2/29/16 very unexpected it was a tough loss ,about a week after I really need to get out and clear my head so went on a hike more than a hunt but I was walking the beach and found my first axe head after looking for 25 years I truly felt my dad had something to do with it his way of saying all was gonna be ok. The beach and the spot I found the axe I have walked that same path atleast 500 times before and had never found any artifacts on that stretch ...... crazy

    I would rather see an authentic broken scraper posted than a G-10 Artifake!
