I've never hunted them in New Mexico, just private property here in Texas.


I can't believe that the Federal Champion was junk. I've only bought it in 50rd packs during the Sandy Hook ammo crisis but I hadn't had an issue. I do prefer the 333 and 555 packs of ammo though.

This was in the 50 round box. I remembered it as being better ammo than the really cheap Federal bulk which I've never had very good luck with.

You're safe on the arrowhead hunting then. The American Antiquities Act doesn't cover private land. You won't believe the extra expense it has added to the cost of almost everything having to do with disturbing public lands.

I grew up on a farm over on the east side of the cap in Texas. Evidently there had been a big indian camp just behind one of our barns. Lots of burned rock there and my dad and I found lots of really nice arrowheads in that spot. I have a perfect corner tank knife that I found there, the only one I've ever seen outside of a museum and pictures of them.

By the way, we have made very good cotton crops there the last couple of years.

Very nice! I've never found a corner tang. Just scrapers, points...found my first piece of pottery a few weekends ago. It is a hobby that I thought would not be fun (walk around and find nothing for years)...only to find out that if you are looking in the right spot you will come across all kinds of stuff.

We just received permission to check out a Cotton Farm in Seminole for points....and I like to look around Snyder.

I never found any pottery on the farm but I found a lot of pieces over here in the sandhills. Some were even painted. Nothing fancy. Nearly all of it is a light or medium grey color and any paint is black.

My dad bought some ranch land west of Seminole when I was a kid and deep broke it into a farm. The method then was to break it mesquite trees (LOTS of mesquites) and all. We hauled the stumps to an old caliche pit and burned them. I wonder just how many BTUs of energy went up into the atmosphere from all the stumps we burned. It was broke four feet deep and the guy with the D-8 cat and that big disc plow found some rocks on one corner of the place. I helped on the weekends and thought we would never get done picking up stumps and then rocks. I was married before my dad was satisfied we had all the caliche rocks found. All that stump and rock picking and we never found one arrowhead or any indication that an indian had even built a fire there. They were probably buried by the plow.
