Bison Bone Tipped Digging StickThe bison bone tipped digging stick was used on the plains from Texas to the Dakotas, where soil can become extremely hard and wooden tipped digging sticks would be ineffective.

Archaeologist do not know if they had a right angle handle like a stone hoe or a straight handle like a digging stick. These are interpreted with a long heavy straight handle and heavy bison leg bone with enough weight for serious digging.
