Where to hunt for arrowheads in missouri

excellent question. i have actively hunted arrowheads in missouri this entire summer (2008).  its not easy on your own.  two factors are in play-location and timing.  surface hunting in plowed fields requires knowing which fields contain artifacts and when the fields are plowed, as well as waiting for at least one inch of heavy rain to uncover artifacts-WOW-very difficult!  creek hunting requires knowledge of indian sites and being in the river or creek when the water is LOW. knowledge like this is hard won, other arrowhead hunters will point you in the right direction, but NEVER divulge their best spots.  I could not understand why until i started trying to develop my own spots.  once you find an artifact, others will be found in the immediate area over time, as they become uncovered. artifacts are a limited resource, and it is not in a hunters best interest to divulge locations.  HELPFUL HINTS: hunting below a dam is excellent anywhere in missouri.  the river below a dam's floodgates surges up and down 10 feet or more depending on demand for electricity.  this UP AND DOWN causes MASSIVE EROSION, years worth in weeks!  this exposes artifacts at an incredible rate-both in the banks and on the river bottom.  be sure to go when the gates are shut off at the dam-this allows you to walk in the EMPTY RIVER BOTTOM in most places. -email me at Wilz9@yahoo.com for more advice.
