    Big Bend artifacts: early Dutch clips, old rifle cartridge

    One of our party inadvertently removed an artifact from the desert in Big Bend. It is a 30-06 Springfield rifle cartridge. Cartridges with this headstamp were made between 1930 and 1939. A spider had made it his home.

    In the same area, we found some strange items that we determined are early versions of Dutch clips. We left them in place.

    LOL!
    Good one, MacEntyre! Looks like Paul Bunyon must have hung his hammock there.

    Everything is bigger in Texas...

    There must have been more trees back then...

    They sure didn't believe in LNT then
