THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Nice one Chris, thats a good reward for a "nature walk"
As far as "unfinished", MANY points show one edge damage when the original owner used it for a knife while
still hafted on the dart shaft. Many times the flaking will show resharpening so that its still a nicely worked piece just out of symetry.
Interesting the different damage left on complete points, some ugly chips look like the same effect you would get on your Buck hunting knife if you tried to loosen the screws on a rusty lawn mower.
You surface hunters are going to be very busy shortly !
For the first time in many months, big rains are forecast for most of Texas [ Except at far south as where Te hunts !] Might be elbow to elbow crowds in the better drainages, a bit like the Christmas shopping activity !
chris that point is very nice , just the size alone is awsome , you guys down south dont realize how lucky you are , be it surface or creek or the digging , the size alone leaves me in awe , here in west tx most of the surface hunting has been played out so much were lucky to find bird points and scrapers or partail knifes , good job and nice point !
We got like a 70-80% chance of rain for the next three days. The idiot weathermen said we should get at least a good 1/2" of rain. Yeah, right. 72 hours divided by 1/2" of rain. I doubt that would even get the dust settled. A good toad floater is what we need to get the dust washed off the points.
Well the WX forecasters really got it right [ so far ] for Texas. After many months of arid conditions, there is plenty of rain water for crops & wildflowers, livestock and restocking the aquafiers but MOST IMPORTANTLY, churning up even the smallest of creeks and rinseing off that light dusting of dirt that just hides the outline of gorgeous worked flint..
A surface hunters Paradise !
One small exception though is that little itty bitty triangle of land a bit south of San Antone...
Down around Te's local they just had a bit higher than usual humidity. The local emergency rescue teams have already put the Toad life preserver jackets back into storeage !
Thanks for the replies. I'm hoping to hit some Conroe creeks on the 17th. We'll see what came outta this rain.
Don't look like we're going to get much more of this flooding rain. Ended up with 2" of thunder and 4/10" rain. Toads didn't even put their raincoats on. Rattlebugs were out in force before this cool front hit. Talked to one of the local farmers and he killed three small ones (5'-6') rattlers in his yard before Monday. Life gones on in the brush patch.
nice pedernales. Finding that makes it worth stomping around in the mud and cold.
