    Thanks but not all the time and all the ones I do walk are on privately owned property with owners permission. There is still 1 I can hunt but they have Angus bulls on it so Im saving it on the back burner as Im sure you know why.

    Louise22 The 1st one even though is a neat rock its a piece of natural Limestone which you find in most creeks. Limestone is one of the best foolers for shapes when you are out looking for something nice. Its comes in small to very large pieces but you will know its natural by the feel it should feel like a piece of sand paper when dry or wet. Indians did like it due to sometimes flint will grow on it inside and out but Ive never found a piece of it worked not saying it is impossible but yours looks natural to me. The others look worked except for a couple on the end pics. Believe it or not even a creek can chip an edge on a piece of flint if the flint is laying flat on the bottom and the current is rolling small cobbles over it. As the cobbles hit the flint it will chip an edge on the flint and make it looked worked but sometimes its a natural edge. But most of the others look worked. rock
