Custer was a woman and baby murderer. Makes me sad to say he was born in Michigan.

I was at Blackdom day before yesterday hunting agates. It is at the rest stop near Floyd Rd. between Roswell and Artesia...about half way.

There are still some old corrals and a junk camper there.

I found a meteorite near that spot in 1981.

How much was it worth ?, I had a friend of mine find a Meteroite in Northern Nevada and he took it to sell it and he got 40 Grand for it, Lucky Guy. Why can't anything like that ever happen to me ?. lol

Actually it was worth about $12K. This was many years ago. I have found several, but this one was a new find. Very rare. I saw it fall one night!

I have found many meteorites over the years. All in known strewn fields. Holbrook, GLorieta, Canyon Diablo, Franconia, Portales, Roosevelt Co., adn Floyd. I am working on Grants, and trying to get a speciment that i found in Mora County verified.

I have prospected for gold since I was a kid, as well as hunt artifacts and meteorties. What a hoot!

Sometimes you get lucky and make some cash. Most of the time you just wear blisters on your feet.

A meteorite is not an artifact. It is not a claimamble mineral either. And hunting artifacts on private land is certainly legal as long as it is not a culturally significant site.

You are very good at telling others what you dont know about their business! Congratulations!

No it isnt. You can hunt artifacts and arrowheads on any private land that you have permission as long as it has not been declared a "culturally significant area".

Besides, I was not hunting arrowheads and artifacts. I was hunting agates and meteorites. So I cant imagine what the hell your point is.

Confucius says, it is better to be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt. Before you criticize, you should read the novel first, then you'll see the story is about the brutality, the compassion, the reprisal, bravery, heroism and gallantry.

To the Ice Bridge Crossers the beat up on the ones who built the Pyamids in Central America, who were here first. The truth shall set you free. The lie is easier to believe than the truth...

Peace.

Hunting Native Amercican or Prehistoric artifacts on PUBLIC land is illeagal. Gold, minerals or other resources not only may be "hunted" but claims may be filed to claim rights to the land for mining or recovery purposes. I believe that naturally occurring items that fall from the sky fall under those provisions also.

Artifact hunting on private land is not generally illeagal, but does have some restrictions.

No, items that fall from the sky are not claimable minerals as I have already pointed out. And I also pointed out the restrictions for hunting artifacts on public land a few posts back as well.

And a mining claim gives you no rights to the land nor does it give you any right to recover minerals nor mine. It only asserts your mineral rights. Nothing else.
