Ancient burial ground discovered during duck hunt
Bryan Austin of Siloam Springs thought he’d found a crime scene when he spotted a human skull under a pile of rocks while he was duck hunting in northeast Oklahoma.

Looking for a good place to set up a camouflage hunting screen Nov. 19 on a mud flat in the Spavinaw Creek drainage area, Austin found what turned out to be an ancient skull.

He later learned that the site is an ancient Indian burial ground.

. . .

“ Holy crap, this is a burial ground, ” Austin said to himself.
