    Was having a lackluster couple of hours today hunting an older school (lots of clad and canslaw). I noticed behind the school it sloped down into a creek bed with some erosion. Figured what the heck, I would try that area thinking some targets might have washed down there over the years.

    Was not expecting to see an arrowhead. I always wanted to find one! A friend thinks it dates back into the 1500-2000 years ago range.

    Oddly, it started pouring rain right as I found it and had to get to the car. I plan to go back there and scour for more.

    A very nice point.

    Texas is in the The Central States Archaeological Societies, check them out for information and a collecting society of Indian relics. As is Oklahoma since your in north Texas.

    There are many relic shows in your part of the country.

    Great find!

    I'd love to find a point like that some day!
    I'm always looking down when I detect, but all I seem to find is my feet!
