Hi, I live in Cooke County near the Red River. Can anyone help me figure out where to hunt? I do have family land in Montague County that has a live creek through it. I have sifted and dug in the creek with no success. I know there was a good Indian population in the area, maybe I just haven't hit the right part of the creek. I found a few tiny flint chips but most of the rock looks like limestone here. My uncle tells me he has run people off before that were hunting points. Any ideas? Any places on the Red that are good?
Howdy Rog, You certainly described you location correctly..
Cant get much further North than the Red and still be in TX
Thats all well known prehistoric occupation country so all you have to do is
refine your techniques and search area.
All I can offer is the same word as I suggested to Eric. Enter some key words in the "SEARCH" block
an see what might show up from past
postings (like SURFACE HUNTING & CREEK FINDS )ETC
Hey Roger, I am from Wichita Falls about (15 miles south of the Red). My inlaws have a place in Montague co. on the lake in Bowie. I know of a place just north of the red river that I have surfaced hunted. Maybe we can meet up some time. Here's my email. I'll give you some ideas about arrowhead hunting around the area. email@example.com
Thanks guys. I'm going to keep on plugging. The creek I have been digging in has sand bars and gravel bars. The gravel hasnt yielded anything yet, should I try the sand? This creek is a pretty big one and it is just west of the Muenster Arch, a big geological ridge. I have plowed fields there to hunt to, but the wheat is coming in now so I may have to wait till next year for that.
