These were all found in East Tennessee, Western North Carolina, or Indiana. (Indiana finds are all Nick’s.)
I love this new hobby 🙂 I have tried other forms of “getaways” and stress relievers over the years like Hiking (which I still love), DIY projects, reading, girls’ night out, etc. But, for a mom that is always in demand, this has been one of the most relaxing hobbies I’ve ever tried my hand at. The best part? Most of these fields are so remote, I have no cell phone reception 🙂 It’s like a magical gift from the daily grind of a never ending string of phone calls, messages, and social media bleeps going off.
This will be my last post about arrow head hunting until late fall this year. Sadly, farmers are planting their crops now or will be very very soon. Arrowhead field hunting is coming to a close for the season 😦
I will stop with the pictures for now 😉
Over the weekend, my husband and I thought we would go out and look for a tilled up field to look through for arrow heads. Thinking we would try north, we drove around field spotting for a few hours. We found a lot of field, but none had been turned. We discovered that practically no one will is home on a Sunday afternoon anyway to give permission to walk their field.
Lesson learned. It was actually a good trip. We shared time together and checked out the landscape that we didn’t otherwise know.
After a couple of fields, Nick said “I just know we’ll find arrowheads or artifacts here! Just look at what I found!” ….
After a good laugh, we were on to the next field 🙂
The only thing we actually did find was a shaft straightener,
a few tiny pieces of flint, and several farm properties that are for sale.
I’ve always liked just leisurely driving around though, so I loved it!
It was a good day 🙂
Below are some we found on other days.
