Hello to all,

Thanks for any comments you might have.
I found what I think is a fossilized animal bone or antler that maybe was used as some type of tool? You can see where part of it was chipped away. I found this nearby an old sitting area what believe was a small place to make a fire or cool on the rocks? The area where I found the fire site was secluded and protected from line of sight.
I will attach pictures.

Again, thanks for anyone’s knowledge or attempts at what it could be. I share the appreciation for the history of our land and the way the Native Americans used the land for survival. This was found in Junction, TX. Historically, a highly populated area of where Comanches roamed.

That looks like a sweet area to hunt for things. What you have is a concretion. I found one here in Florida and thought it was some kind of bone also before I was told what it was. Good luck to you and keep looking!
