I have been viewing this forum for the last couple of months along with many other websites with an interest in getting into the "art" of finding arrowheads. My girlfriend and I have been out looking several times in creek beds and river banks with no luck. Although there is no set in stone (no pun intended) way of finding these artifacts, I feel that I have been following the general advise pretty thoroughly. I have even found what looks like an old campsite in the dirt with many rocks yet no finds.
Now to the point. My girlfriend and I have a great site in central Austin to find fossil shark teeth. I would be more than happy to show you the location and how to get to them in exchange for an onsite demonstration of what to look for when arrowhead hunting. Maybe a little onsight explanation will help us both out in our search. Let me know if any one is interested. I'm currently going to UT so good times for me are usually on the weekends. Thanks,

Wonderul storys behind them all!! I hear that epopel find them in the dry creek area in south austin area I quess that would be called .. There is a area off N. Lamar? By that big park that they do fake fighting with all that old swords and all that mideven stuff...
I don't know the park.. But, hear there are some nice teeth there too!
I will check out the STAA website, thanks. I did see the shark teeth on the homepage. The place that I go to isn't at either of the places that you mentioned but I think it might be close to the second one you mentioned Michelle.
