    Two High Plains Paleo Finds

    I'm been hunting now for 15 years but I'm new to this site. Wow! This is a great resource and I'm happy to be apart of it! Anyway, here are two nice Paleo Points found in the Western Dakotas. They look like KRF but they are not. The washout contains brown agatized wood and these are of the same material. Anyway, I think the one is Clovis and the other is a Goshen. I'd love to know what you all think.

    Those are couple of dandies. They sure do look like KRF. I have a point out of similar looking material. When mine is backlit, it shows bands in it.

    Thanks Jayhawk. These also show bands when backlit. The ranch where I found em gives them up slowly. I average about one paleo per year (all found within 10 yards of each other).

    Welcome....great points for your first post. Does it get better?

    I think you're right about the material..not KRF.

    These were legally surface collected on my private property.

    Glad to hear it......I was pheasant hunting there last fall and asked the farmer about artifacts, he refused to even discuss the topic. They can shut the farm down if it would turn out to be a camp site or something. I'm not up to date on current laws but I know some other S.D. Collectors and they don't like to discuss thier collections?? There has been some recent trouble there with artifact hunters on public land or protected sites.

    I know the story. A number of guys keep hunting the protected sites along the Missouri River and, once again, it ruins it for us law-abiding folks.

    Yes, that was where the trouble was along the Missouri.
