Indian camp sites
Hello all, new to the forum. I see a lot of comments all over the web about finding artifacts at indian camps. I'm 19 and I have found several points (30ish) while hunting, fishing, making food plots, mushroom/shed hunting, etc. How do you all go about locating a camp? I've seen "maps" that give likely locations, but it seems like a long shot to pinpoint the exact spot along one of the classic scenarios (ridge, off of the flood plain, etc).
I also see a lot about digging, which seems even harder. I dont see how people dig a hole and happen to end up right on top of an indians camp fire... Can anyone give me some advice on finding these locations???

Welcome! Take a look in the arrowhead hunting and collecting forum... there's a lot of good advice there. It is always a longshot to find a good spot, which means you have to do a lot of walking over those likely sites. If they are too easy to find someone will already be on them. But it will be worth all the looking and "getting skunked" when you do find one!

I would like to see some... Do you know how to put pictures on? I see you are new here is why I ask.. I might be able to help you..
I took pics, but I'm having a hard time getting the pics on here. After I click "upload" I'm just waiting and waiting but the pic never attaches.
i use a cell phone for my modem and it takes my pics about 10 to 15 minutes to upload
What warrior drew the bow, sighed, and let it go on its last flight? how oft its flinten head, on its deadly errand sped, i do not know
Make sure your pictures are in the right format and also make sure that they fit the prescribed capacity for that format.

You're more than 'on your way'. It's only a matter of time.
I know there are threads in here where many people have spelled out methods like looking for plateaus near water sources with rises of land in the west to block wind. Plenty of good info. Maybe someone will be able to remember which threads and link them.
... I have seen that in any great undertaking it is not enough for a man to depend simply upon himself.

What state? That will help people id them.
Everything is from Missouri, about an hour north of Springfield. Almost everything has been close to the Pomme de Terre River which runs through my back yard. A few were from the Sac river, near Stockton Lake, only about 30 miles west of here.
