The hunters before us

We took our six month old Boykin, Cap'n Pablo (From Robert Earl Keen"s Gringo Honeymoon song) out to the family farm today for a run and ran in to this tiny treasure. It is interesting that some areas in the Delta have large size arrowheads and some have small size arrowheads. This particular cotton field has yielded small points before.  One mile away they are about two inches long. I've always wondered why they were left there. We are about fifty miles as the crow flys to any rocks so they probably were not careless with them. Pretty cool anyway!


  1. Great find. Just found your blog thanks to OBN. Look forward to reading more about your adventures. Nothing like watching bird dogs work.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. REK - nice!

    Nice find and remember that all over North America, areas were populated by folks, vacated, and repopulated from at least 17,000 years ago, on forward.
