Maybe some native thing.  I don't know.  We just found this in the woods.  Didn't even get detector set up yet.

Wow Will, do they go all the way through? From the one side they look like finger holes. Maybe Fred or Barney lost their bowling ball. Or it could be softer inclusions of rock within the stone were eroded away.

One hole went all the way through.  Maybe was a bowling alley.  I ended up finding a few rocks with these same round markings.  The big rock that I sat the small one on to take the pic.  Og wanted to flip it and see if anything was under it.  We flipped it and it had them too.  This was the same spot we found all the old broken bottles.

They say great minds think alike. I was thinking the SAME thing! Strange rock, I'm kinda leaning towards a natural occurance though.

The bottom pic looks natural, the top one is interesting in that the holes are evenly spaced in a circle, that is intriguing. Think

What he said... I collect rocks with holes in them. I call them my Whole collection.(get it?) Some smaller ones I have on my mantle. One I have by my front door. Here in the Ozarks its a sign of good luck to have it there.

You really collect holy rocks?  It's good luck to put them by your door?  Do bullet holes count?  I have a few of them around the door.  Just kidding.  You don't know what might cause the holes huh.

Missouri has a bunch of rocks like yours if you want more. I would guess water drips over time caused the holes.
