I do not believe there would be any digs allowed at Krause Springs as it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places because of the undisturbed midden located on the property. The parking lots around the swimming pool and the road leading up to the springs area will turn up broken and occasionally complete points after a hard rain. In fact the entire area was probably a camp for thousands of years judging by what I have seen show up after a rain. It is a really beautiful place.
Joe T's input is 100% correct. The Chief Pecker confirmed that to me this morn. NO digging but
surface hunting is permitted. Yes, it was a very
active ancient peoples local, even they apreciated
I did see lots of info on the web, just nothing on any digging. I guess I know why now. It looks like an awesome place.
Thanks for checking, Hal.
BTW, I did find some points at randy's but no big blades. I left yesterday at 3am and sifted 8 loads and dug 15 sq feet and came back with a nap arrived in Mineral Wells at 645am.
I found a LaJita, 2 gowers a Nolan and base broken Kinney blade, broken covington knife and a couple other pieces of big blades and one hell of a heartbreaker perd base. I'll see if David will post a pic for me. I'm loading the wagon for Port A. See y'all Sunday.
I'm back with no spoils from PortA. Didn't do much but play with my three boys in the surf and sand, drank some beer ate some seafood and relaxed for once on a "vacation". We fished a little and caught a few but really enjoyed the trip.
I forgot to metion on my post before that Randy is a good guy and host. Showed me the ins and outs of officially digging for artifacts like that and shared a lot of cool info about the place. Thanks, Randy.
