I suppose it's either a hide scraper or a tommahawk head. I would've left it where I found it except one of the deer lease hunters would've picked it up and hauled it back to Florida.

Yeah, maybe it was a hoe. That would explain why some Indian kid threw it over in the bushes where I found it. :lol2: I'll get some pics out in the sunlight tomorrow and repost.

Amazing what you when you least expect it. I was walking through our corral and kicked a rock, but something made me walk back to it. It was a stone scraper.
Hubby's grandfather found an obisidon (sp?) spear head in a field.

Looks like an ordinary rock around the hill country, course I expect to find that in a hill country rock pile. Don't know about finding that in a sandbox like Georgia.

You don't find flint at all in the part of Georgia I live in. Indians went elsewhere and traded for it and brought it back here.

There was(still is) a place back home,just a slight rise,that you can sit atop and see for MILES-- could find arrow heads and flint chips there by the billions. They must have sat watch there and chipped arrowheads while doing it. I could sit on my horse and see 5 miles in all directions..
