  1. I will be moving to Rapid City this fall for my masters, and would love to do some rockhounding, maybe find some fossils. I did find this great map; http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/76244-fossil-bearing-units-map/ And of course, I have state and other geologic maps (and university library if I want it, probably) at my disposal. I enjoy exploring new territory, for sure. But some tips on good areas/regions to look in would also be great. I am certainly not opposed to prospecting some myself, but tips from fellow rockhounds are always welcome! I don't know

    Fossil Hunting around Bismarck ND

    I have some relatives in Bismarck, North Dakota, and would like to know about fossil hunting opportunities in the surrounding area (preferably in a one hour radius of the city.) I already know about the Geological Survey digs, but would prefer hunting where you can keep what you find (or even just the common stuff.) Are there any pay to dig/ public access sites near Bismarck?

    Hoploscaphites nicolletii (Morton 1842)

    From the album: Cephalopods Worldwide

    8cm. nicolletii zone Maastrichtian Late Cretaceous. I picked this up for a song recently on our favorite online auction house. I had to finish off the prep and do a small bit of modelling at the venter. The seller had no idea about the location, not even the state, but that really doesn't matter to me. I'm just happy to be able to add another of these gorgeous ammonites to my collection.

    South Dakota Map

    (Posted in SD forum as well, feel free to move) I thought this would be an appropriate addition- my hope is that this map will allow forum users to plan trips to SD! Threw this thing together for you guys in some spare time at work. The map shows the extent of common fossil bearing strata in the state of South Dakota, as well as some "no-go" areas- reservations and the like. If you guys want a certain area zoomed in on let me know! FossilsSD.pdf
  9. First time or second time in my intire fossil hunting life where I canceled on a trip. My son is a bit lucky cause he has a father who has connections. anyways, he took off for several days and went to a few different formations and I have to say,,, did extreamly well!!! Here are some photo's of some exraordinary fossils!!! Just a few pics,, more to come. RB Holy Cow!!! and yes, he's got the other side to make this a very large and complete Sphenodiscus!!! A super nice spheno!!! This one is going to be freakin gorgeous!!!
  10. Just got back from our (my youngest son and self) trip yesterday. It was a buying and hunting trip with me doing most of the buying and he doing most of the hunting. Right now Im in a bad way and feel as if I been beaten up! along with all the shocks I have everyday and having a hard time walking, but the thing is,,,, Im all smiles. It was an all day drive to get into South Dakota and our first stop was a guy who sells White River fossils. After loading up some BIG Tortoise's and lots of the oreodont stuff, my son also bought some just for practice, we then went and found a campground.

    Somewhere, I posted about the receipt of this ammonite from @RJB‘s cast off pile. I finished up the prep yesterday. Unfortunately, I don’t know these ammonites well enough to give it a good ID. I know there’s someone here who does though. I gave up on the back ammonite as its quality wasn’t worth my time.
  12. I aquired this rock last summer. Didn't think too much of it at first. Been working on it off and on for quite some time now but the more I worked on it the better it got! Believe me it took waaaaaaaaay too long! Im not sure but I think its hoploscaphites Nicoletti? Well,, and along with quite few little other squid critters. I was going to blast right through all the little stuff but decided to prep them out too. Not sure if that was a mistake or not. Because of those little critters it took me much longer than anticipated. But it came out purty dang good.. In fact,,, one of the

    Fossil ID Hadrosaur Bone?

    Hello, I found a fossil in the fox hills formation (Upper Cretaceous) around 6 miles east of Timber Lake, SD. I believe it is part of a dinosaur bone, or atleast a large vertebrate and was wondering if there was enough of the sample for a positive ID. The area in which I found it in is known to be a lagoonal deposition environment and I found the fossil in a thick bed of bivalves. Mosasaurs have been found in the formation but I'm not sure that this bone belongs to one of those. I tried to mostly clean it off, but there is still some encrustation.

    Fox Hills Large Concretion

    Broke open a large concretion, here's what was inside. I really need to learn proper prepping technique, smash and look probably not the best way to reveal specimens. Any more experienced with suggestions for SD Fox Hills prepping?
