    Aluminum prices are through the roof.  They are almost 50% more than they were at the start of the year.

    As far as pre Clovis there was what they thought was an anvil stone broken. What led them to think it could be pre Clovis was the broken pieces had been moved like on purpose if I can remember. Manipulated in some way. There was a write up in National geographic. 
       Pay to dig? Well here is my opinion for what it is worth. Yes it would be fun and no telling of what you might find. On private ground you can pretty much do as you want except where human remains are. Here is the other half of the story like it or not I agree in it. You destroy what can be learned because of the many layers in time buried. So much to be learned in the various layers unearthed in a uncontrolled manner.  I will stick to wandering surface hunting in farming practice manipulated fields or creeks and wash outs provided by mother nature.  Another good deal is to register the site where you find debitage / flakes that may be a site of inhabitation.  These sites are not published and only used in case lets say a highway or something big is going through there pipeline maybe. Here is where Jack Ray is brought in to give his opinion on if the site should be excavated and processed before being destroyed. Neat deal again my opinion. Once it is destroyed its history is lost.

    Let me tell you something,
      I not only talk the talk I walk the walk. I know both Jack and Neal. Jack has become a very personal friend. Some of the points I have found are in Missouri point guide publications. The special publication #4 Southwest Missouri State University . Regional Research and the Archaic Record at the big eddy site (23CE426) Southwest Missouri. A Scottsbluff from the Sac River Valley I found is in there. Then In Jack Rays Ozarks Chipped- Stone Resources: A guide to identification, Distribution, And Prehistoric use of cherts and other raw Materials. Of course the mentioned Big Eddy site is filled and the dig there is over. I was asked if I wanted to volunteer to help in the work there. Got to hold both halves of the Clovis/Gainey found there. 
        We don't hunt points like we used to but always keep our eyes open for finding. 
      I like the past, currently concerned about the present and frankly worried about the future

    It drives me nuts, and I always kick them over as well unless it's a place that is already "civilized", like in a campground or access point.  On Facebook people get all indignant when they see complaints about rock stacking..."it doesn't hurt anything".  Well, what part of "leave no trace" do you not understand?  Why do you think other people want to see your lame attempt to shout, "look at me, I was here"?  But I've been called rude and selfish for calling them selfish and self-centered.  As if I shouldn't expect for wild places to be wild.
    As you can tell, the whole thing ticks me off.

    The most important message the River Rangers*  try to spread: DON'T MOVE THE ROCKS. Rocks in and around rivers are important habitats for salamanders, macroinvertebrates, fish and more! In addition, when you move these rocks, you can change the flow of a stream an increase sedimentation, which may change what can survive there. This summer, we took apart more than 300 rock structures! Please refrain from moving the rocks and leave the cairns for designated trail markers.
    EDIT- These are pictures of us disassembling rock structures, not building them!

    I have noticed bowfins getting some love in the last few years…caught them as a kid down south in the Mobile AL drainages…grinnel is what we called them, fighters that would smash a lure. They would get over 10# regularly, definitely ruin a lure…many states giving them gamefish like protections….buddy of mine told me black river ditches in NE Arkansas we could catch all we wanted…..figure a few should be in some of or weedier waters…cool fish

    MoCarp got a reaction from laker67 in Petition for single point hooks in trophy section   
    Never say never on getting regulations changed….many waters have barbless, flies only areas…..as far as plugging for trout, I always pinched the barbs down for my safety, last thing you want is a hook in your hand to ruin the day…as far as poachers….they will poach regardless of regulations, just need some serious teeth if they violate the regulations….massive fine, loss of fishing privileges….
    personally I like strict bag and length limits….bumping up the slot a couple inches can’t hurt IMHO…..meat fishermen devastate many great fisheries….gotta stay diligent take photos and report….
