Yes,I would do that for sure.They are pretty heavy when "new",but as said,I have packed out dug up really old ones too,they almost get like they are petrified,VERY worth bringing home!!!Awesome find@Kuger That's awesome! I may take it over to the university to see if they can tell how old it is. I am glad I didn't waste my time carrying a cow skull. That thing was heavy and full of sand. No telling how long it's been in the river.
