I dont know if Hal will be washing it up. That cardboard flint reacts funny when you wash it off.
That is such a rare and large find why take a chance on damaging it!! haha
Hal, it looks like you will not be needing the goggles for a while... well maybe just to keep the dust out of your eyes!
Returned to work today,Doug called me to tell me to pull up site, I was not going to believe what you found. I almost fell out of my chair. My co-workers thought I was crazy because all day long I was telling them ... I should have dug ten more minutes. Just 10 more! How I just missed it. So close. Thought about that huge Montell all day, got home to review that great find one more time and seen post about cardboard. YOU GOT THIS GEORGIA GIRL GOOD! What a relief now I can sleep. Loved it. They say everything is bigger in TEXAS Montells included. Enjoyed meeting and digging with you. Hope to return soon to claim that 10inch blade!
It's getting tougher to fool people anymore...Everyone already knows there is still enough water in the flint washing hole on the Nueces ( Even when completely dry on the surface, most larger drainages still have some waterflow moving down deep and in this case it
acumulates in the swimming hole dip )
Plenty of water for flint washing, my finds were very modest so I threw in my best Llama shadow animal
The Montell washed off nicely but scared the fish
In a group pic, the Montell really looks out of place...it's not the right type flint for this area..
it could be a planted fake
Here's the best blade with a fish scale
