I struck out yesterday in the snow to look for an antler after work and got into a field and saw where several fence rows had been bulldozed out. I couldnt get to them fast enough, knowing that this ground had never been disturbed before I figured there had to be something in it. I found a pocket full of broken tips/bases/mid sections a full chipped ax/chopper, a crude drill and some kind of really cool stemmed point that at first I thought might be a Benton but after studying it Im kinda lost as to what it might be so all my good rock hound buddies here........HELP! Ive never found a whole benton so it would have been cool but this one just doesnt look right. It also has a few fresh tip dings that Im sure the dozer did but im happy to have saved it!!

I'm just guessing here but I think the left one could be a Adena and the right one looks more like a Bradley spike vs a drill.

Howdy catchdawg, ya know Adena did cross my mind as well, never thought about the ugly one being anything other than a drill but I just looked up bradley spike and you could be on to something.Thanks for the look and reply.
