    Let's see your favorite arrowhead

    How many of the very nice artifacts posted in this thread do you think were actual points for the bow and arrow?

    South Fork and digginthedirt. Those two small points are the best candidates.

    A favorite because of how I found it. Walking a corn row, daydreaming. Comes a voice. Out loud, in my right ear: "Arrowhead!!". I spin around. Nobody! What the hey!? I look at the ground all around me. No arrowhead. I take two steps to continue the hunt. "No", says I. "I never heard a voice before, gotta be a reason!" There's a big bright oak leaf lying by my left foot. I stoop down and lift it up. Arrowhead!!

    Another "how did I do that?!" favorite. Lying on my back, eyes closed, sunbathing on a beach towel. Right arm extended out, scooping up sand with right hand, making fist, letting the sand run out like an hourglass. At some point, there's a small rock left in my clenched fist. I feel it's shape with my fingers. Suddenly, a light bulb goes off. I sit bolt upright, open my eyes, open my fist. It's a point!

    Which points go with which weapon will always be a debate. I personally believe that the arrow points were 1.5" max. Today's arrows are loaded with + or - 100 grain tips. But modern have much more power. 25 to 30 pound traditional bows would have had the smaller points that were extremely sharp. It's not necessarily the power, but the penetration capability.

    Let's see your favorite arrowhead

    It’s hard to pick a favorite, as they are all so hard to come by.

    But here’s one of my most prized finds:

    In 2008, I searched a corner of a low lying soggy area of a farm pasture that had been left dormant for decades. I spied the plow parked in that area a couple weeks prior and thought the timing was good to go back and have a look.

    Directly across the road was a swamp from which a culvert fed the entire field via a ditch, which ran the length of the area. All said, freshly plowed, it was about 4 acres.

    I found the condition of the field was left in wave after wave of long large tufted rolls of grass matting and mud. I walked on the crest of the rolls and meticulously searched the long alleys between them.

    I searched for several hours, but found nothing.

    It dawned on me that the field needed rain. So I waited for the rain. After a week(or so) I went back again. Oddly, the field had not been worked by the farmers at all. So, I went back in a found out why.

    No Other Footprints!!! My hope grew to excitement!

    But,...It was a soup sandwich. What a slog! But, I was determined to search every inch. And, (after several hours) and a soar neck, I had indeed left no stone unturned. Walking back to the truck, I (in my mind) removed that field from my “places to check out list”, and vowed to never return.

    Dejected, I stepped out of the mucky rim of the field. ...And wouldn’t you know, right there by the edge of the road (next to my truck) in a mound flipped by the plow, THAT little gem lay there exposed (white and sparkling on the top of the mud).

    It’s a perfect G10 example of a SNAPPIT Point. (Doucette 2003), Gem Quality Quartz Triangle. Thin and Well Made. Finely Serrated. Needle Tip Present. Turned-in and Rounded Basal Ears. Visible grinding on the Base. Mid to Late Archaic Period, 6000-7000 years BP (Before Present)

    BTW: I went back many times. And, never found as much as a flake. Even the farmer gave up and never planted a thing there.
