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.
