Anyone ever find any old war guns or arrowheads in their property that they'd like to share? I'd love to see some pictures!

Awesome collection Nic!
My son looks over maps and satellite imagery to locate possible sites, then finds owner of property and asks permission to walk their fields. Hardly ever denied access.
Generally any high point near a natural wet area he’ll find points. We’ll have Saturday’s and after work walks once the farmers get to harrowing fields.

Here is what I consider to be my best 5 projectile points...1. clovis 2. lost lake 3. quad 4. taylor/big sandy 5. decatur. All from the same place , n.w. ga.

That nearly "Mustache Simpson" is nice. So is the Clovis. What counties did they come from?

That's awesome. Keep it up! You have a great collection

I am looking for points, no matter what I`m doing. Just habit. I seldom go just looking for points anymore though. Ironically, I find more points while I`m turkey hunting than any other time.

wow!! that is so cool!! Are they usually just sitting there on top of the dirt in plain sight? Or you actually dig around for them? I've never seen how it works

If you can see dirt, look. If that dirt has been disturbed in any way, plowed, washout from rain, or any way at all, look extra hard. Artifacts can turn up in the most surprising places. A plowed field after a good rain is a great place to look. If it`s on high ground close to a water source, even better.

Another place to look is in the root ball of a big tree when it has been blown over in a storm. Let it rain on it a time or two and you can sometimes find points in the dirt on them. And they won`t usually be broken either. Some pristine stuff has been found this way.

Sweet! Hope you keep finding lots more! Great piece of history you have there (y)
