My first, and best arrowhead

I am sure a lot of you have arrowheads. A few of you may have found them bottle hunting. I found this by accident. I wasn't looking for anything really. I was just walking along, and I caught this out of the corner of my eye. It's a Hopewell. The material is Flint Ridge Chert from Ohio. I had been looking for arrowheads for a long time, and haven't found one until then.

Apparently, according to neighbors, there was a large Hopewell camp at the bottom of the hill we live on. They hunted the ridge tops, and in the creeks and valleys. Every time someone plows, or digs a hole, they always find an arrowhead. The man who lived in our house as a kid told me that when his father was digging the foundation, he found hundreds of flakes, and about 20 broken and whole arrowheads.
