I am adding to this post.

My friend jim is now doing time for picking up arrowheads. His assessed fine was $2,600.00, since he is a poor man and unemployed, he was sentenced to time in prison. His buddy was able to pay his fines, and was not incarcerated, however, now he has a police record for theft and trespassing.

This link provides wouldbe arrowhead hunters with advice and warnings.

In Texas, I was able to find arrowheads in the field behind my house. They were so plentiful that as a kid I could 'decide' that I would 'go find some arrowheads today'. I had a great collection I wish I'd kept. I'm vacationing in Palm Springs and hope to find some this weekend.

Sometimes I pick them up to get a good look at them. I never take them, though. It's not like I can use them, nor am I interested in cataloging them by type since such typology has already been done.

Also, surface finds are the main way archaeologists find more significant sites located beneath. (although finished points are rarely associated with permanent sites, I am referring to more domestic artifacts such as mano/metates, piles of debitage from flint-knapping, etc.)

It is always fun to find artifacts, though, and know that many people have passed where you are standing for millennia.
