I've been told by many folks that there os some excellent flint on Fort Hood reservation, but thta it's off limits to us civilians. Maybe cause you're stationed there you can go collect some?

Hi Roger,

Welcome to the board.

You can find your answer on the following link: Texas River Guide

From reading some of the information on the above link, public access to streams is a complicated issue but generally boils down to this: Public access is allowed on nearly all navigable streams, whereas non navigable or perennial streams are private property. Of course, the land surrounding a navigable stream is often private property, so that you would have to use public access points to enter the stream and these may be far from where you want to end up.

I just took a drive out to Gypsum Quarry road and can verify the amount of material out there. A lot of the flint is coated in quartz or gypsum so I am curious to see how it breaks but I did pull one nice smooth piece weighing about 40 pounds out of the roadside this afternoon. I am goiung to have to fashion a bigger billet just to deal with it.

Thanks Charles Creekmur, and Edminister you guys were correct. We took a trip back up to Fredericksburg last weekend and found the correct road and did find several pounds of decent chert along the road near the Gypsum mine. It took a while to get back up there but we live closer to that area now so it was a nice day trip.
Thanks again

Where is a good place down by the coast (s. of Houston) to hunt for some rocks? I'm out of my element in Texas, having grown up in Montana area.
