how difficult...??

This past weekend I took the family up to Cooks Forest for some camping. The entire time we were near the water , I kept looking for arrow heads, never found one but didn't really expect too either. Driving home, I figured the river isn't the best place to find one...??? I cant seem to get finding one out of my head!! The wife now has confirmation that I am nuts but I guess I want to know how difficult is it to find one? Where geographically in PA is good? Finding one in the woods doesn't seem very likely...? Are farm fields decent places? Seems like the disc would get new ones up every year. Any ideas or thoughts would be great!!
Thanks!!

Re: how difficult...??

Always heard that a freshly plowed field right after a good rain is the best place to look. I've found two so far. Both without even looking for them! Found one walking across a field to go trout fishing and this year I found one while trout fishing right in the middle of the stream. Bordering fields of course. Seems like the natives traveled close to the streams and rivers.

Re: how difficult...??

The plowed field thing works....but you gotta search the RIGHT plowed fields...those fields likely weren't always fields...gotta think of travel routes/hunting grounds/campsites etc...

I know guys that have buckets full...I know a guy that can walk in the woods and find fire cracked rock and pot shards and flaking and heads just piled up...he knows what to look for and where to look...

I have a date to hike with my buddy here in Michigan to see if he can teach me a few things...

I am highly interested and never found anything...


Me and 2 buddies were sitting in a groundhog field one summer...one buddy said "ouch". Dang point jabbed him in the arm as he leaned back....we couldn't believe it...

Re: how difficult...??

Thanks for info!!!
So some big rock outcroppings and rock shelters would be a good place, right? Almost need to think as if you lived out there...

Most of the finds I've made have been in plowed fields near a river or creek.
