    Found Something Really Cool!

    Found this eroding out of an arroyo washout due to all the rain we are getting. At first I just thought that it was a regular vertebra but after cleaning it off I could not believe what I was seeing. I told my wife that I think that we have something pretty special, don't you think. After doing a little research I am pretty sure it's a ''Stott's Point. From what I gather Stott's point are associated with the buffalo hunters from the Alberta Canada area down into Montana and the Dakota's.

    No it's not. I have only dreamed of finding a point stuck in a bone. I have tried to get on property with a known buffalo jump, but there are just that many ranch owners that let you. The property that this was found is on a cattle ranch and there is a lot of sage brush. It's a semi-arid area that when it rains it can erode quite a bit depending on how much it rains.

    That's unbelievable! What are the odds? W.A.G. 62 trillion to .0001. I thought my buddies dredged buffalo scull was cool but that's just wild.

    That's an amazing find! One in a million! I'm voting banner.

    That’s more than awesome, shows how sharp and strong the points were! Do you think it is from a spear or arrow? Glad you can put that one in your case, I wonder if you should try to preserve the bone somehow. Too cool for sure!! Banner!

    Right in the thoracic vertebrae. Def a kill shot wonder why they did not retrieve it? Very nice find.

    I believe it is a younger buffalo.

    Great job, that would be a dream com true for me. Since I have been hunting I have always thought the coolest thing would be to find a artifact that was placed somewhere by the maker. I would say more than likely the maker would have done just that with that one.
