Default Any stone tool/native American enthusiasts?

Anyone interested in seeing a few stone tools/arrowheads from the jersey trip? Or take my rocks somewhere else?

Heck yeah! I would use the category: Caches, Old Bottles, and other treasures. They certainly qualify as other treasures. We see 'em in the help ID section sometimes, but for show and tell, "other treasures" is my advice. Let's see 'em indeed!

So technically your detector beeped when you scanned over it? I don't think so.

People regularly post stuff they find WHILE metal detecting. I can understand why some people might be concerned about the forum losing focus, but that's why they have the "relics and other finds" section. No big deal. Nobody is going crazy that CoinStar and thirft store finds sometimes get posted in the general hobby discussion.

I would like to see your stone tool finds please. Hope to do that one of these days!
I had a collection of arrowheads I bought from a co worker long ago that his dad had picked up walking around the dez in Mexico. Nice points! Well I tucked them away somewhere 20 years ago and forgot where they were! I have not been able to find them, very frustrating. DOH!

there are plenty of posts on here about arrowheads, fossils, and rocks of all sort and I don't recall any complaints from anybody that matters about if it's detecting related. There are posts about found turkeys,apples, and candy bars an nobody is complaining. Were you waiting for a specific amount of replies before you graced us with your pics? Show them or go I don't care, but no one is being "unfriendly" to you. You asked for opinions and got them.

I was hunting a 1600s site and there was so much iron Iíd simply find a solid signal and use my pinpointer and hands to sift through the spot.

Thatís how I found this tiny bowl that appears to have been carved of bone

Thatís how I found my only arrowhead. I tend to follow the coil with my eyes and saw it just after I swung over it. Iíll have to try and find a picture of it. Also this while metal detecting

If you look in the upper right corner you can see my coil. Two antlers from two different bucks dropped about 5í apart. I love to see incidental finds

Awesome man, finding two shed antlers like that is about like finding a unicorn for the average hunter. Antlers are another treasure that I chase all over creation haha
