    Newbie Arrowhead Hunter from Texas

    Good evening,

    I have been fascinated with finding arrowheads since I was a little kid only to have never found anything. My family owns a small piece of property outside of Camp Wood, TX which resides on the Edwards Plateau. I’ve read about Indian history of the area and knew I could potentially find some hidden artifacts. Well I’m excited to say that I have finally found what I believe to be my first arrowhead and then some. A total of five broken pieces all within 10-15 feet from each other. I’m absolutely thrilled with what I have found and I’m hooked. I want to learn more so I can hopefully find more. Everything I have read or people I’ve talked too has said for each piece to be so close together a potential campsite could be close by. I don’t know this for sure but at this particular location where these pieces were found it looks like a dried creek bed or use to be a natural spring. I’ve always thought it to be a place where water would collect or runoff when it would rain and that maybe true but my mind keeps going back to it as a possibility. So after saying all of this I am looking for any tips and advice to help me figure this area out. Thanks.

    UPDATE...

    So this past weekend my family and I went to our property in the hill country. After doing some work around the property I was able to go do some investigating. I do believe what I use to think to be a water runoff is in fact an old creek or spring. I was also able to find two broke tips. One I think could’ve been a knife ( the brown one ) and the other a spear tip or something similar ( the white one ) I’m hoping some of y’all can share what ya think they may be. I also have been looking for info on midden’s and examples of fire popped rock. I think may have found one but not sure, it was close to where I found the white tipped point but it’s just a random dirt mound so I’m curious if that is something. I have attached some pictures of the new points. Thanks.

    That's a very encouraging set of brokes. Keep looking and you'll find a whole one. Easy to agree with others that warn you of addiction, especially if you are the kind to want to read and understand what you've discovered.
    Happy hunting.

    Welcome! Sweet finds, the white rock is either a knife blade or scraper. And your arrowheads are pretty awesome too! Thanks for sharing!!

    If I get sometime tonight I may take better pictures of each piece and post them. It takes a little bit longer since I have to resize the pictures and I can’t just upload them from my phone.

    Thank you for the link. I have also ordered a book called Stone Artifacts of Texas Indians from Amazon that should be arriving today.

    At the bottom of the hill is where I found these. Slightly higher than the spot of what I believe held water at one time.

    You can put a date on some of your finds Bulldog. I believe you're hooked - nothing to do now but feed your addiction..

    Most of my finds are on the sides and towards the bottom of the hill, I rarely find worked pieces on top.
