From what I understand arrowhead hunting on public land is illegal? That is just what I have HEARD. I tried to look up missouri law on the issue, and have not been able to find anything. Does anyone know for sure if it is illegal to arrowhead hunt on public corp of engineers land? Also if it is illegal do you believe they would actually inforce the law and arrest someone for arrowhead hunting? I have never heard of such a thing!!

Lol I highly doubt you will get throw in prison for 5 years arrowhead hunting. That is a pretty Crazy statement. I think they would either give you a small fine or most likely let u off with a warning and tell you not to do it again

I got that from an old news article about a guy that picked up some in southern Mo somewhere that were on the surface. Got busted right at the park. Agreed that most likely he didn't get that bad a deal. Search for yourself. Nothing to mess with. Plenty of private properties to look on.

Something i found

arrowheads - [domain blocked due to spam]


Laws and Regulations | Missouri State Parks

Removal of plants, animals, rocks, downed timber, artifacts or relics is prohibited without written permission from the state park director.

Perhaps I didn't make myself clear this isn't a "state park", just public land. Also if you are going to base your views off the crap spewed on [domain blocked due to spam]...I could really care less what you think. Give me one example of someone getting thrown in prison for 5 years for arrowhead hunting. I bet you anything 99% of the time they let you off with a warning...I have friends who are in their 50s who have been arrowhead hunting on public land since they were kids.

Maybe instead of attacking those who try to help, irregardless of how helpful you think they are or are not being, you could be more clear with your question and define what you mean by 'public land'. Is it federal, state, county, city?

I apologize if that came across as a personal attack, but the idea of someone getting thrown in jail for 5 years for arrowhead hunting is ludicrous. If is corp of engineers land.

This article might be a start but you should probably call the local Corps office to find out about your area.

Arrow heads do appear to be classified as artifacts in state regulations I am finding.

Thank you for the link!! Great link. It seems like there would be a chance that I could get fined. It was funny listening to the park ranger speak...he made it sound alright to Wonder along and take an arrowhead if you happen across it...but seemed more concerned with those that sift for them. I only surface hunt.

Do as you like. i did read an article about a guy in southern mo and they busted him big time for having just a few arrowheads or points as i call them. I too have been hunting for years(private property). They can make it real rough or easy depends on who catches you.
