Hi, I recently got into sharktooth hunting in Florida and wanted to try to do it in Virginia but unfortunately there are not any where I am. Because of this I though looking for arowheads might be similar and fun to do!
I was wondering if anyone had any tips or sites for a newbie! :)

Politely introduce yourself to farm owners in your area who still plow fields and see if they might allow you to surface hunt (AFTER harvests). You're in a good area. Good luck.

Just got done telling the story on another thread but if you have access to wooded areas check fallen trees that have thrown up dirt. This has lead me to a handful of sites I’d probably have never found.
I also like to look in spots that have natural beauty if it’s a draw for people now it probably drew people in the past too

I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard silverslash64! You might want to take a look at Forum: Virginia for information (i.e., clubs, etc.) directly related to your state.
