    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
  3. 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
  5. 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
  8. 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
  9. Hi everyone! Yesterday my girlfriend & I went on a fossil hunting trip to an abandoned quarry in Resteigne in Belgium. https://www.paleontica.org/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=10&language=en I am currently at home for some time due to mental health issues. I am currently dealing with despression and severe anxiety attacks all related to COVID-19, I am in a risk group and work in an essential store and the stress and way that people threat you finally became too much and I simply snapped. I finally decided to go see a doctor and a psychologist to help

    Not another dinosaur egg....

    I found this in Nyack, NY near the water, close to where fossils have been discovered before. It looks as though it has some of the characteristics often discussed in this forum in regards to fossilized eg gs. Please forgive me if this is another river stone...

    Trip to Albania

    Dear TFF Members, It’s a bit late after my return, but I needed to wait for the delivery of my spoils by mail, which took a while :). Nevertheless, all the fossils are safely with me now, and I can share this report from the trip to Albania with you. I chose Albania (with a brief visit to Macedonia) as the next destination because it has everything a perfect holiday destination should have, namely: mountains castles lakes seas (Adriatic and Ionian) – btw, the name of the Albanian Riviera is well deserved l

    Texas Trip to Laredo

    Greetings Guy/gals! I'm making a short trip to Laredo Texas next month. Do any of you know if there's many fossils in that area. I will have a full day to poke around. I'm told that it's hill country, with many old washout creek beds. Any thoughts would be great. I'm a bit new to fossil hunting, so just thinking ahead. Thanks in advance, Joe
  13. I was wondering what the Texas law is for fossil hunting in a creek bed? I have been hunting in a creek and properties are fenced off above the creek. I have no interest in going onto the properties. I stay in the creek beds while I'm hunting. I just don't want to get myself in a pickle. I park near a bridge on the side of the road. This weekend I ran into a situation where the police came out to inspect why my car was there. Some of the people was understandably concerned since my car was there a couple of hours. Would it be a good idea to put a sign "fossil hunting" in my window to keep this

    Palaeo-activities around Bourges/Morlac in France

    Hi all, I'm currently on a week's holiday near Morlac (Bourges-area) in France, and was wondering if there were any toddler-friendly activities in the area that I could do with my 3.5 year-old son. I'm thinking of museums, but possibly also of areas where we might go on a fossil-hunt. Thanks for any information you could and would be willing to share!

    Unknown shark tooth?

    Hi, I found this tooth in South Carolina earlier this summer and was wondering what it was, right now I’m thinking desori or bene(I’m hoping its a benedini, but I don’t know how realistic that is)
  16. 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.

    Poor Man’s Raft?

    So I am in the process of building a raft in order to reach those backwoods fossil hunting spots. I really don’t want to spend the money on a canoe/kayak that I will only use a few times. Is this a waste of my time and effort?
  18. Today I was able to get out to the outcrop along Rickard Hill in Schoharie, New York. I didn’t find a ton of interesting things because I was looking in a more crystalline layer of the Kalkberg formation that had less abundant fossils. I found a handful of nice orthid, spiriferid, and atrypid brachiopods and one fenestellid bryozoan. Next time I go I’m going to try and get into a different, more fossiliferous layer because the crystalline rock is hard to break and when it does it breaks randomly, often damaging the fossils.
  19. Hi, I'm a brand new fossil hunter in New Mexico looking for some places to start looking and exploring. Can anyone recommend any good sites to start out? I'm interested in the Rio Puerco valley, but the only site I've found so far with listed coordinates or good specific directions is the Windmill Site, whose forum post is a decade old, and even a decade ago people were saying it was starting to get pretty sparse and picked clean. Is there anywhere else in the Rio Puerco valley area (or really anywhere within a couple hours' drive from Albuquerque) where someone could give more specific direct
  20. Last weekend I got a chance to do some fossil hunting in a creek in Greene, New York. I am a unsure if the exact formation I was in but I know it was upper Devonian. Brachiopods were quite abundant, especially spiriferid ones. I also found a couple nice bivalves and some bryozoans/corals.

    Plattsburgh Ordovician fossil

    A month or so ago I found these while trout fishing in a creek in the lower Champlain valley. I have no idea what they are, so any info would be very helpful. They were from Ordovician rock that was pretty barren except for a few brachiopods.
  22. I'm looking for some places to look for Triassic fossils in west texas. I've heard that there is some exposed along US-84 but I'm looking for a little more around there.
  23. Can anyone confirm if it is fine to use the hammer end of my Estwing Geological pick for striking a small cold chisel when fossil hunting - or is it just for striking rocks/ It actually stipulates that the pick end is for prying only (which is fine) but the that hammer end is only for wooden stakes! Is this an overkill by Estwing to manage their H&S liability or is it common knowledge that you canuse the hammer on cold chisels? Any advice gratefully appreciated! Cheers - Rick
  24. Anybody know any spots in North Carolina to fossil hunt? If no one is willing to share their secrets can you at least tell me what to look for?
