  1. I didn't get out hunting much last year, still working on figuring out how to research and find spots, but a friend of mine invited me out to do some collecting at one of his spots up in Washington State. I took some family with me and we went out over the Winter break in mid December. Pretty cold but beautiful! We're mainly looking for concretions weathered out of the formation, but occasionally you find Callianopsis claws loose in the formation, usually very brittle and in poor condition. Lots of mollusks to be found as well as crustacean
  2. I know that Acro stuff is quite rare and hard to come by, but I was wondering what the best spots in Texas are to find such fossil material. I live in the state, so it would not be too much of an issue to travel to a spot or two to hunt for these theropod fossils. To sum it up, my question is: what are the best spots in Texas to legally hunt for and collect Acrocanthosaurus fossils/teeth (preferably without heavy duty tools or machinery)? If there are any, it would be much appreciated if you list the formation and location.
  3. Hi all, So normally, the weekend of 19-20-21 May I was gonna go with my family to Cap-Blanc-Nez (in France) with the WTKG, but unfortunately that excursion got canceled because, aside from me, only one other person applied! Luckily, as it is the place where my dad proposed to my mom (and therefore this area means a lot to them), and they would like to go back, we decided to go there next week (7-8-9 May)! We already booked a B&B in Wissant for the 3 nights. I am looking forward to it! So, as preparation for the upcoming trip, I am turning towards the most experien
  4. From the album: Fossil Art

    This picture was taken as is, it was not photoshopped, everything is real in the picture. Only the contrast has been adjusted a little bit. I took this picture at a small beach where the fossils are underwater, so I literarily fish for the fossils. You can read my two articles on the subject by clicking on the following links: The day I went fishing for fossils (part I) The day I went fishing for fossils (part II)
  5. My first post was so popular that I decided to do a second. I went to the same place, and found more many rich and colorful fossils, and got enough material to write to you about it. For those who missed my first post, you will find it HERE As you will see in this article, I combine my two passions, collecting fossils and color photography. I love color, creating black and white photographs of fossils is good for scientific research, when you are a paleontologist and want to record the small details for science and posterity. But for people who are just starting to explore the wor
  6. Hey all! I'm a huge newbie to actually fossil hunting, though I've been seeking out museums, collections, and building my own personal collection of geological specimens for most of my life. I know that Kentucky is a major state for prehistoric, oceanic fossils and I would love to start hunting & collecting on my own. I've researched for a few months now and as far as I've gotten are some parks/areas near Cincy and Lou. I am not opposed to driving whatsoever, but I am local to the Winchester/Lexington area and I would love to know of some closer sites that I could visit more frequently - e
  7. Hi everyone! Around 2 months ago on the 16th of october 2021 I went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to the stone quarry of Lompret in Belgium. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/654 The rocks in this quarry are Devonian in age and date back to the Frasnian (382.7 million years ago to 372.2 million years ago) with the finds mostly being from both the Neuville and Matagne Formations. According to Tom our excursion leader this quarry exists out of what used to be coral reefs and islands that formed around atolls. The fossils that you can find in this quar
  8. Hey everyone, I live in Morris County (NJ), and Fossil hunting is a hobby of mine that I hold dearly. I usually love going to big brook but only during the spring through fall. I want to go fossil hunting this winter, and am willing to drive a few hours but I was wondering if anyone knew any places where I can go fossil hunting in NJ or Eastern Pennsylvania that doesn't involve going through rivers or streams? I know I can gear up and go to Big Brook but I just want to be on the safe side. Plus, I think it would be really fun to find explore new areas! Anyways, I would love to hear
  9. Hello everybody. I'm a fossil enthusiast who has a podcast about fossils and gemstones. I love in Southern California, but there aren't any fossil sites down here besides the one in Bakersfield, which is still a while away. Does anybody have know of a fossil mine around Southern California, or even just a fossil shop? There isn't really anything down here, I stick to online shops. I greatly appreciate it.

    Fossil hunting sites in Ottawa

    Thursday I’m headed out to Ottawa, I have some time where I won’t be doing anything and am wondering if there’s any good fossil hunting sites in the area that I could collect at. I’ve heard a bit about the Stromatolite and Trilobite sites in the area but not sure where they’re located.

    Fossil Hunting in the Kansas City area

    I am a completely inexperienced fossil hunter currently living in a suburb of Kansas City, about 30 minutes from the Missouri side of Kansas City. I know a lot of land in Kansas is privately owned and off-limits to fossil hunters, but I'm not so sure about what's on the Missouri side. Are there any places around Kansas City that are relatively novice-friendly that I could start out with?

    Millard County Run July 2021

    Hey gang! I figured I would throw out an openish invite. After my 2019 Millard county "scouting trip", I am preparing to head back for a slower, less intense exploration. I'll be skipping the pay-to-play sites this time around and focusing more on the lesser known and remote areas. The research has begun, and this time around it is going to be hardcore now that I am familiar with the terrain. I plan to be in the back country the week of July 18th. Base camp will be in the vicinity of Ibex/Fossil mountain at a little out of the way sit
  13. I just got back from an amazing and very fruitful week of fossil collecting on the White River Formation in northeastern Colorado. The White River Formation is a very easy and fun rock unit to collect vertebrate fossils on. The White River Formation was deposited during the very latest Eocene and the early Oligocene, though the faunal diversity in the areas I was collecting on suggest it was laid down during the Orellan North American Land Mammal Age, which centers on around 33 million years ago during the Rupelian age of the Oligocene Epoch. I am very lucky to have a grand uncle
  14. Hey everyone, So, I live in Morris County and usually, I fossil hunt at Big Brook and Shark River. I am trying to expand my horizons a bit during the summer and have been looking for new places to check out. One example is trilobite ridge but I haven't heard anything new about it in about a decade so I am unsure if it is still accessible. In any event, would anyone have any suggestions for other fossil hunting spots within the North Jersey area? (or close by). Thank you!

    Mulbring quarry

    Hi I'm a mum with a 7 year old boy getting very interested in fossils. I've seen all the old posts about Mulbring Quarry and I'd love to take him there. Could someone please point me in the right direction re how to get the contact details for the owners? I understand they've been good in the past about letting people in for a look around. Thanks!
  16. Hello everyone, this summer I'll spend a month in Germany for an internship project and in the weekends I'm planning to explore the region and collect fossils as much as possible. I'll be based near Frankfurt. Due mostly to the language barrier I couldn't find many info about fossil hunting spots easily accesible or open to the public. Therefore I'm looking for your help here. Do you know any such place? I think that as long as it is a couple hours drive from Frankfurt, I can make it . I read about the quarry in Eckelsheim, but I understand that it currently closed to fossil h
  17. Hello, I'm taking my son (9 years) on a 6 day road trip from Evergreen, Colorado to anywhere in Utah. We're avid fossil hunters and spend a lot of time looking in Colorado. We're going to do a trip to Utah and i'm building out the itinerary now. At this point, we're entirely flexible. That said, since it's just a few days, I was thinking about focusing on the Moab area and then heading back home through Telluride. Would love your ideas for places we should go or stop along the way. Thank you in advance, we really appreciate it!! Dan
  18. Okay gang....let's have some fun....a contest of sorts... As an experiment, I'm going to have you folks here at the TFF choose the location my fossil hunting/camping excursion for May 2021... There are a few minimum requirements, however: Will take place over the Last Weekend in May, 2021 so I have up to 5 days available. Keep in mind, I allow a day to get there and a day to get back) Location must be no more than a ten hour drive from Omaha, Nebraska. (You can use Google maps or the like to figure drive time from Omaha) Primitive/Disbursed/Car camping mu
  19. hi I'll be in the Rochester mn area on Saturday and wondering where besides quarry Hill park can I take a small rock club group for fossil picking? good road cuts that safe for for old and young?
  20. Hi everyone, now that it is a prohibitive time for fossil hunting (at least where I am!) I though it was a good opportunity for a little throwback. This summer I travelled to southern France and I had the chance to visit museums, paleontological heritage sites and, of course, collect fossils. Towards the end of August I met with a friend and we headed to an area that was quite popular among professionals and amateur collectors alike, but we didn't know any exact location. We stopped at a place that looked promising and we asked the owner of the land permission to survey and,

    North Carolina Dilemma

    Hi everyone, I want to start by saying I am new to the site, so I apologize if I do something incorrect commit a faux pas. I am a younger gentleman in college living in North Carolina; my father instilled a love for fossils in me from a young age, and as I grew up I would explore beaches and phosphate piles. Even though it is just a hobby, I put a lot into fossil hunting; my interest was always beyond the surface level of "I love shark teeth," and I have done countless hours of research. This brings me to the present day where I call your wisdom and guidance. Unfortuna
  22. Hello everyone! Fossil hunting is massive hobby of mine and I am trying to find new localities (that are of course, legal). I have a background in GIS and Spatial Analyses (albeit, working on completely different things!) and was thinking about using my geo-spatial skills to narrow down a few areas. In so far, I have layers dedicated to streams, bedrock, and DEM but I was curious if others have used GIS and remote sensing to aid in fossil hunting, and if so, are there any specific layers or techniques that you find to be particularly useful when searching for areas that may have f

    Halloween hunt

    Goodmorning/ afternoon all! Being a middle aged 20 year old, I've outgrown the need to go trick or treating for candy on Halloween. This year, my brother and I were supposed to have my nephew over for the weekend. We had originally planned some fun activities for the little guy (he's 4) as real trick or treating was out of the question this year. Turns out this week that 4 of his day care workers came down with the Covid, so he's now in quarantine at his mom's house for 3 (her choice, she won't budge) weeks. All alone for Saturday now, I decided to go out and look for the real treats, f
  25. Hi everyone! Today I went on another fossil hunting trip with the fossil club the BVP. https://www.paleontica.org/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=3&language=en We visited the "La Couvinoise" quarry in Couvin, Belgium. The rocks in this quarry are part of the Hanonet Formation which lies at the boundry of the Eifelian & Givetian. But the layers we searched in today where all Givetian in age (387,7 - 382,7 mya), I mainly searched in the Crinoïd & Brachiopod layer. Although I have to admit that we probably visited the quarry at a bad moment, as the yield was quite poo
