THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Had a blast for three days in the great basin hunting points. Think I did alright for my first go at it, luckily I had a couple of friends guiding me through the endless sites. We hiked about 50 miles and saw countless deer, antelope, and other local wildlife along the way. Enjoy the show, I took a lot of pictures!
Thats an excellent report on a neat trip.
Must be a flow of Obsidion up in them thar hills.! That unique base of yours a Murry ?
Finding a near clear point on that light backround....good
Thanks very much for the show
WOW! very impressed! you were on my stompin grounds. I've spent the last thirty years hiking that desert. Gotta love those paiutes... they were all over that desert.The reddish colored heartbreaker obsidian came from glass buttes over near burns. a lot of the other obsidian comes from davis creek south of lakeview and some comes from near paisley. What area were you near? first week of may I will be going over to Guano Valley...about 30 miles from lakeview. Are you off just on weekends? I will be over there for 5 days. I will also be going to Coleman valley to pick up some broken pieces of matate and pestles and bowls we left behind last year.
And by the way....after 30 years of eating dust out there I never found a stone bead!....GREAT FIND! This is about the best time of year to be out there.
Thanks Tom, I'm proud of my bead for sure. We were out in the Warner hunting this go round, mostly around lake beds. It will be a while before I get out again, but if I do I will give you a heads up and maybe we will run into each other.
Hal, I believe the broken point you are referring too was called a fox eared desert side notched.
I spend alot of time in warner valley. guano valley is just east of warner.(its the next large valley over) these two spots are probably some of the best hunting areas in the oregon desert. I love working those alkali lakes.
Hal, look up Abert Lake Artifacts. Abert Lake and Abert Rim are near where G-town was hunting. There was an archeological dig there many years ago.... they found a treasure trove of artifacts. Lake Abert is an alkali lake that still fills with water every year.
