DANG!!! That's cool stuff right there!!! Only native American thing I've ever found was some kinda hollowed out stone (from a creek at my great gma's place in the hills of VA)and when I took it to someone who knew about this stuff he said that native's use to use these rocks fer paint (warpaint/ceremony/what not)...I use to carry it in my pocket as a good luck thing and lost it!!!!! I reckon it wasn't good luck???

My Brother Bruce Cosson is into the Walton County Historical Society and has many atricles of large wars with the indians that took place right here where I live and the land on Eglin is very close. He would love to see your collection !!!

very nice display. we grew up in Shalimar on the bay. we used to dig in the cliffs when the fishing was slow. we had boxes and boxes of pottery and arrowheads. we also used to go as a family digging for old bottles and antiques at old homesteads.

times were different back then. you could fish other people's docks and they did not care. your brother could step on a catfish while fishing on their dock and your parents did not sue them for having a catfish you caught on their dock for your brother to step on.

"Lighter knots" is what I heard was used for light before lanterns came along. floundering and crabbing at night have been going on a long time.

You also have to remember the water was a lot clearer than today. I've read where Andrew Jackson's writings describe the crystal clear waters of what today is Bayou Chico.

I have gigged all over destin/niceville/FWB/freeport and I have never ever seen a arrowhead. Guess I'm focused on flounder outlines to much. I do see a bunch of little bitty flounder, I scooped one with a net that was the size of my thumbnail.
