Welcome to Screen Dig
Here are some of the pictures that were taken while visiting some Sifter Dig sites in Texas
LOTS of great conversations going on in the message board about dig sites !
Skid loaders and sifting
screens so you dont have to worry about the heavy lifting
While at the Nueces River?
Check the Paydigs Page for Big Oak River Camp !
for information on their cabins that
are convenient to the dig site on the NUECES RIVER!
was the opening of a new site at the south end
across a low water bridge which the locals find excellent for washing their flint.
Fairly early in the morn Cy found a BEAUTIFULLY made duckbill Kerrville knife....This area had been known for K knives..
UNBELIEVABLE After showing us that duckbill, . . . . Cy went back to work and SIX MINUTES LATER from the same load he found ANOTHER one..
( note Ace walking away shaking his head )

Don't forget to clean up at the river down the road!

2-9-09 - "THE REPORT"
Nueces River !! Whatta day we had!
This was really my 1st time
actually screening for the day - There wasn't a mussel in my arms that
I didn't feel tense up today! WOW whatta work out! But MAN was it worth
it!! No pain no gain right??
Come along and check out our GAINS of the day , here on the beautiful
Nueces River Dig !!
I am SURE that the river that was running behind us was nice, but the flint kept my attention all day ! I didn't even walk down there to take a cold dip !
We worked the tables and IKE kept the dirt coming! Whatta trouper that IKE !
A bad cold didn't stop him all day! He loaded and cleaned and loaded some more!
Even nice enough to clean under my feet over and over so I had a platform
to stand on to sift ! He took pity in me being so short I guess! THANKS IKE !!!
Even nature watching while at the Tables when this little fella got caught in the scoop!
Had to bring something for good luck ya know us !
This little fella , The "Nueces Gecko" watched over us all day from his little place in the tree's.
This was the FIRST Kerville Knife that I have EVER FOUND!!! Whatta beauty too!
Thin and make GORGEOUS and even PINK in color! Them flint gods! I would have been happy with just this find for the day .. But hay, it was only about 10 am ! Can't let a little thing like a big old knife stop the digging process right ! Wow, I will treasure this baby!
Hal , I am sure worked and SLAVED making this big old PERD to hide in my pile of dirt!
So what do I do ? I JAB right into it with my shovel like 4 times before I find it!
I got a kick out of it - I am sure that Hal was crying inside when I stabbed it though!
BUDDY was a great treat to chat with today as well!!! Nice to meet you and chatter! This guy is a wealth os information about the area and the site! If you ever are there and get the chance and Buddy is there.. CHAT HIM UP ! Whatta wealth of information !
Hal said it was on HIS side of the table - But hay ... When do I ever listed to Hal anyway! heh
Hal even made some flint dip !
We all stood around and chattered for lunch and had some food -
My Hands and Arms needed time to relax for a while !
PLEASE take your trash and cig butts with you !! keep the place clean for everyone! Thanks!!
Look ! I really stabbed it ! SORRY HAL!
Back to work ! - Hal was knocking out some very nice PERDS !!
My eyeglass container RUNNITH over today - My goodies in the case
and the broken I crammed in a cigar case that I brought along!
Not only did I find my FIRST EVER Kerville knife today ! I also found my SECOND!
This little beauty is so small and delicate and awesome !!!!
Hal , ofcourse, made up some special chip bags that is we found
any special points we could match them up to the bag!
Got the perd all right !!! Maybe next time we will match up the others!
The Largest perd that I have ever found is 4 1/16 !! AND I FOUND IT TODAY
It was a great day and fun
was had by all ! I am glad that I finally had the opportunity to sifter
dig and by the looks of all the items that we found today, I am glad that
my first sifter experence was here at the Dig - Made it a very relaxing
and fun day , He really worked his butt off for us all
BUDDY it was also very nice to meet you and glad that you were there as well!
Thanks for checking the update
No telling when youare going to find a nice producing like this camp so take
advantage of the chance to dig it while you can!
Welcome to a update form
old camp in Camp Wood
Camp Wood, on the Nueces River. It looks that looks like I have to get out of
Cedar Park more often! Great setup, all you need is water and gloves. Come enjoy nature and
bring a good pair of leather gloves and lets go through some dirt together!
Here is Hal's home made, I need to move dirt to find points, GLOVE TOOL
Ok, for those of you who think they see a 1/2 a egg pan glued to a good leather glove with
liquid nail.. Well.. You are CORRECT! The Hal Man made this special glove because , come on,
scooping dirt for 8 hours would take the tips right off my fingers! Way to go Mr. Special Tool!!!
Ok, Ready, Set, SIFT! Here is how it works for those who have never been to one of these type of
digs before.. Wait a minute!! I have never been to one either! Ahh! But, anyway... !!
You stand at a large table with a graded top that the small soil falls thought and the Bobcat man
brings the table loads of dirt to sift through. Then you pick through the pile and put the
arrowheads and base tangs and kerville knives and things like that right in to your pocket!
THANKS FOR CHECKING ALL OF THE SIFTER DIG AVDENTURES
