|And the winner is....|
I was struck by the number of times where a hunter was overlooking a game-trail or "glassing" for game, looked down and saw other hunters had been in that exact, same spot (give or take a few feet) doing the exact, same thing.
Some of the artifacts are from the black-powder era. Others were chipped flint.
That means that those game-trails have not moved very much over the centuries.
It also means that adversaries who rely on line-of-sight weapons are more vulnerable to being ambushed or Claymored than they probably realize.
In the case of arrow points, one must wonder if the owner was ambushed by a human or perhaps a cougar? It takes a considerable amount of effort and skill to knap a stone point and they are not simply abandoned the way a spent shell casing is.
