      Great morning, last Saturday! Felt like Spring, and in fact my main purpose was listening for gobblers. I didn’t hear any turkeys, but I did find this nice point (Coastal Plain Chert, I think). I was admiring it in hand and pondering when the hogs started fighting in the swamp. A sign? One more hunt for the old head? I went after them, longbow in hand and point in pocket. Luckily they made enough racket I could get in amongst em. Shot this hog at 3 exhilirating steps. Panko-crusted tenderloin tonight!:D

      The Grandfathers smiled when you found that ancient point and sent you a gift. 😀

      That’s the way I see it too, Duncan. Ain’t it all so cool? Not just the kill, per se, but the connection with the past…..appreciation, the continuing cycle…I just love it all.:D

      For us “spiritual weirdo hunters” it can’t get any better than that. A friend I was turkey hunting with, walking right behind me, found a lovely little quartz bird point a few years ago. I had seen the glint on the ground but it didn’t register with me. But nothing was killed that day. I doubt I’ll ever be as lucky as you were. Thanks for sharing, dave

      I got back from a trip to Vegas last week. I’m no gambler at all but I played the slots just a little. You hit a jackpot with your day! I can see the reels spinning and landing on a point and a hog and the bells and whistles going off! Cool!
