    Really nice display case of your finds. I read back through this thread again. Simply amazing. To think you held in your hand something painstakingly fashioned that long ago is incredible. Gives me chills.

Great story and so fortunate to be with your dad and take his advice to look a little further! As my dad and I were two of the three finders of the "Bat Wing" Cache, I speak from experience. Our cache like yours was pure luck with no expectations at all on our find. Please ignore any disbelievers on your cache, it is a compliment on the artifacts themselves to have the doubt from people who have nothing to do with their finding. It is pure greed that makes doubters, plain and simple. I remember the first time we displayed our "Bat Wing" cache and all the doubters....even to this day there doubters at every turn. It was the first time my wife had been around the naysayers of the artifact world and it was all I could do that day to keep her in check...rotfl! I even got a friend from that experience, in the form of the editor of the popular "IAM" magazine. He had some buddies with him and their display was right behind ours, within earshot of the wife. They were the first wave of doubters she encountered. Gary (Fogelman), the editor and I get a laugh from that experience when ever I see him since then.
    You need to write your experiences down, as family history....and honor to your dad.
    You are completely right in your words about the sad state of affairs our state is in on artifacts. We need new faces with some common sense for sure.....our country to for that matter!!
    There is no one in power in this state that cares one thing about any Archaic site, much less any type of Archaic artifact. There is no money or advancement to be made in studying something they know all they are ever going to know about it....or care to know. Archaeology is a dying profession and the new waves in power now only want to try and keep their livelihood in place. The sad bottom line is: History is interesting for sure, but no one pays any attention to it. People are like the hula hoop, we keep circling the same mountain time and time again.

    It matters none where your artifacts came from as far as the masses are concerned. Many will try and shame you into telling them what they need not know. Most folks only want that information so when they tell the story about the find it makes them feel they are part of it. Rumors will fly, be sure of it, and most will be so funny and unbelievable. I wish I had wrote down every rumor and swearing of the truth about the "Bat Wing" cache, it would be a small journal. Even now 30 years prior I see things said that are not true....even in a post on this web site where one individual said our cache was 3 separate caches? I think since it took us 3 days to find all our cache that this is where this versions of 3 separate caches has come from?? This is a good time to plug the journal we had printed 30 years ago to honor the find and to also share with the world history that could/would have been lost forever. It tells the story of the find, the point types, diagrams of the depths found, locations of each point in relation to each other and personal comments. It also show a color actual size picture of each point and in the order they were found. If anyone reads this journal and then relays any information, they will be telling the story as it happened.
    It's the story of the find that is what hunting artifacts is about and who/what was with you and happened. The artifacts are all playing second fiddle. There are many more great treasures to find and many will be bigger and better than anything that has been found to date.
    Again Kudos on a great find!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....Gomer

    Well said!!!
    Thanks for the comments.

    The rumor mill has already started for sure!!! I already had to defend myself on here, because it was claimed that I had sold them, and didn't appreciate them! That couldn't be further from the truth!!!

    I understand that there is a "Citizen's Archaeology Permit" similar to the Fossil Permit, that is being considered....Wouldn't it be nice if everyone showed their support for this, and wiped out the chance of accidentally committing a felony by picking up a wheat penny from the river??

    Thanks again for posting, and setting the record straight on your fantastic find!

    I agree...I couldn't have asked for a better reception! Much less drama than I anticipated!

    I figured the find would be doubted...as I was having a hard time believing it was true...and I was there!
