I'm John Williams and I hunt, fish and collect Indian artifacts. I have hunted artifacts of and on for probably 45 years. I haven't hunted seriously for the last 10 years. I find one once in awhile while hunting. I'm starting to get the fever again. My old sites are all grown over or built over now, but I am finding new ones. I own 30 acres of ground in Northern Jackson County, Il. and have a cache of blanks found on this site numbering 30 whole ones and a few broken ones. I have never found but one arrow on this place. There is a good site neighboring me East and West. I hunted relics on Big Muddy River, Beaucoup Creek, Rattlesnake Creek, Lewis Creek, Rock Quarry Creek and have 2 pieces I found in Missouri while on a fishing trip on the Big Tavern River.
I started turkey hunting in 1998 and I killed a gobbler 22 1/2 pounds, 10" beard and
1 1/2" spurs. In 1999 I killed a gobbler 22 pounds, 9" beard and 1 1/2" spurs.
I bow hunt deer and I hunt with a shotgun. Bow hunting is my favorite of all. I kill several deer with my bow. I'm getting along in age and I don't get around as good as I used to, but I don't do bad.
I trot line fish for huge catfish. My biggest was an 85 pound flat head. We used to "hog" them out of logs with our hands. I worked underground in the coal mines for 27 1/2 years. I now live in Grand Tower, Il. on the bank of the Mississippi River and there is some good hunting, artifact hunting and fishing here.
THANKS FOR STOPPING IN
