First arrowhead finds 2016

I thought this little handful of broken things was worth showing. Nothing great here but better than nothing to show for about 3 hours of searching in the cold today. In the top row, 3 damaged stemmed points. The one in the middle is decent, nicely made, but missing the tip. The one on the left has fairly strong shoulders, most of the points I find from this site, in this shape, have weak shoulders (like the one in the middle) or no shoulders. Below these are a more recent clay pipe stem fragment, the square base of a stemmed point, and the base of what was once a very large triangle. All quartz and all broken as usual...
