-I live in Stanley North Carolina (20 miles north of Charlotte).
-Recently, I have done most of my hunting in Richmond County but normally, I stay within 15 miles of home.
-My favorite point is the Guilford concave base. To me, this point represents the 30-06 of the ancient Americans. A well made Guilford even looks like a modern bullet.
I have been collecting for 21 years.
21 years ago, when I moved to Williston SC, I immediately took up the sport of hunting, just like I was used to in Illinois. As I would be out in the sandy fields around Williston, waiting for doves to fly over, I would be viewing the ground and seeing pieces of pottery and the occasional arrowhead. Doves would be flying over my head in flocks but I would be bent over picking up artifacts. I then hung up my guns and picked up a "flipping stick". Now I hunt for "facts". To me, every artifact is a "fact".
|Tremendous find. This thin Morrow Mountain type I was found Feb 7, 1998 in a tobacco field that has been in cultivation for decades. Yet, this fellow survived unbroken and is now a secure "fact" safe in my cabinet.|
|Another great find. I found this Kirk Corner
Notch sitting atop a pile of dirt an earth mover had pushed up. Within weeks the area was
Another artifact saved for the future.
|Believe it or not, this was my very first find. I found it when I was 16 and living in Elliot Lake, Ontario Canada. An area was being cleared for picnic tables and a road was being cleared for access. This Celt was pushed up against the base of a tree. For years I called it a "tomahawk" until I read about what Celts were. Kind of took the "excitement" out of it.|
|This little beauty was found April 24, 1999 near the Pee Dee River in a small area that had been cleared of trees months before. One of the best preserved Palmers I have ever found.|
