Default Wow, look what popped out..

I was digging one of my spots today and got a decent signal. Made a big plug and a rock rolled out and I noticed it was oddly shaped. Cleared some dirt off of it and seen the groves and knew exactly what it was. An Indian Axe Head !!! Now how rare is it to have one of these roll out of your hole. The target was junk but I couldn't care less. My first Axe head I've ever found. I couldn't believe I found it like that on pure mistake and luck...be sure to check your rocks..

Something I haven't tried. Arrow-head hunting.
I have an intrest, & many good areas in my area,
other friends have found a few either by chance or actually hunting them.

Great find !

Very cool find!

Have you researched what Native Americans were settled in the region? Susquehannock or Shawnee?

WOW That is FANTASTIC!!!
I always check out rocks in my plugs, I love looking for Indian artifact so it just comes naturally ever dig I do. This happened to me only once, I found a 'core' (which is a rock that the natives would use to chip off from when making their tools.) Later I looked around and found many pieces of the rock chip debris. cool!
You should look real closely at the area, you may (should) find other remnants of artifacts. Finding artifacts takes a keen eye that takes years to get good at. Someday You may want to bring someone there if you are not familiar how to spot the subtle signs of a prehistoric village! I bet there is much more stuff there! than you could ever imagine! Good Luck!

Oh we already know that this place was a Indian camp site. I'm always looking on the surface for stuff and usually just find chips. There's more in there but all under ground

I'm jealous right now! We have several spots in my area where Indians made camp and I have yet to find any goodies! My grandfather had a nose for arrow and spear heads but I have no luck! Congrats on a big find!
