I have never had a good eye for such.  They all look the same to me.  I understand the value, and importance, I just cant differentiate between worked rocks and rocks. 

Money is just ink and paper, worthless until it switches hands, and worthless again until the next transaction. (me)

I am the master of my unspoken words, and the slave to those that should have remained unsaid. (unknown)

I have an old friend Steve that is a great collector. He has a world class collection of museum quality pieces. His buddy was more like what you are saying. One day Steve invites his friend over to go hunt a creek. Unbeknownst to his friend Steve planted a point that he had written his friend's name on the back. So as they were "hunting" his friend finds the somewhat obviously placed point. He was so excited to find his first point until Steve flipped it over and said "yeah and it's got your name all over it!" :=D:

Steve was a professional practical joker. He shared his 400 acre family farm with his cousins. Steve only turkey hunted, but his cousins would hunt deer.

Knowing the trails that they liked to walk into stand in the early morning predawn hours, he would hang "Blair witch" style twig figures along those trails.

He once found an old deer skull with antlers. He set that skull such that the antlers would show slightly above the brush about 100 yds below one of their stands. His cousin watched for that deer to show himself for a couple of hours before he noticed that it never moved.

He also tied a line to a small bush on one end and to a flat rock on another. He tossed the rock over a crotch of a small tree. The wind would move that rock thus shaking that small bush.

I only turkey hunted with him. So I never got any pranks pulled on me. I did find this point on his property and there is no name on it ;).

Here is a modern item that was made at my house during a bait making session.  BilletHead also known as Flint Knapper made it.  I was amazed at his skills.

Do you every notice the smell of a modern Knapped point? Drives me crazy on some fb groups people trying to pass stuff off to make a buck....makes me wonder how many meth heads kick open doors for a guys collection....as a side note most knappers also look for artifacts....an addicting hobbie for sure

MONKEYS? what monkeys?
