  1. Hi everyone! So I am planning on doing some fossil hunting this year before it gets to cold and I am trying to find some good places. Thanks in advance!
  2. Ok so I’m trying to get a group together to locate a bedding plane that has produced Eurypterids in the past ( James Hall plates ). Many hours of searching and reading have given me the location of the area of discovery. I usually have no issues hunting alone for finds but do to the locals , which I have attached an image of below. I would prefer to have company on this visit for additional safety measures . I’m free most days so hunting days are open for me. Oh and there are two locals there look close on the left for the black one
  3. If anyone has experience with any guide services in the Charleston SC area, please let me know how your experience was via PM. Thank you in advance for any answers.

    Calvert Beachcombing Tips?

    Hi guys! So I'm planning to go back to one of the Calvert County beaches to try my luck again- I haven't had any success with finding teeth bigger than about a quarter inch and I'm hoping to find something a little bigger next time. My current technique is to dig up sand from the water and sift through it super carefully- should I switch it up and try something different to find big teeth? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for how to find them? And, final question, which beaches are good for finding larger specimens? I know Purse and Matoaka are good for quantity but I don't know whi
  5. I'm visiting DeLand for a week and a half, and really want to find a spot to search for fossils or shark teeth, haven't found many online and I know people have their own secret spots. Pm me locations if you don't want to share them publicly guys, I am only hand searching with a few family members. I am willing to drive a couple hours to spend a day hunting fossils
  6. Hi, I'm relatively new to fossil hunting and I'd like to know of some spots to find stuff in or close to Essex county. I've been to Arkona for the Rock Glen conservation area and found some cool ones there, though I'm disapointed the quarry is closed off. If anyone knows of other spots around there that would be cool too! Thanks! Edit: Any tips for getting into quarries? There's a few around here and I think those might be good spots to check out. (I don't mean trespassing lol)
  7. I want to go back to Peace River but I don't want to do the normal canoe outpost thing this time. I want to take a kayak south of Zolfo springs were the river gets bendy, shallow, and remote. I don't have a kayak so I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for where I can rent one or if they want a hunting buddy for the second week of May.
  8. Yesterday: fossil hunting with my girlfriend in Limburg. Many Cretaceous limestones and good fossil specimens! Including a really big and complete Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806). My second biggest Pycnodonte. Many belemnites (including a real cool black one!), two pieces (including a big one) from the same genus (Pycnodonte) and one sea urchin Echinocorys sp. or Echinocorys scutata (Leske, 1778). Also one recent cow/bovid tooth and a piece of vase. The two photo's on the right are from another (earlier) trip (fossils are on the ground in a field. Finds: one sea

    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
  10. This Is my first post. I am a amateur hunter from south Louisiana. I have had a lot of trouble finding fossils. I have found one chrinoid in a creek, but aside from coral,nothing has been found.I have found that the two prominent spots from the days of past have been covered long ago. I also realize I in a area with not a lot of potential for ground or creek fossils. I have done one trip, and found plenty there, but that was a long drive to Texas. I have even emailed people such as LSU and Alabama professors and geologists from Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee. Help please!
  11. A 2020 silver lining for me personally was discovering a new hobby and my love for shark tooth hunting. I am fortunate to live in Charleston, SC which we all know is a hot spot for fossil shark teeth. In March, as government shutdowns were coming on strong, a friend invited me to go look for some teeth and there was no turning back. I have posted some of these teeth over the course of the year, but attached is a picture of my shadow box with all of my best teeth found in 2020. As this challenging year comes to a close, let’s celebrate all of the best teeth found over the
  12. HI y'all! If you could take a fossil hunting road trip anywhere in the USA, where would you go? Doesn't need to be specific beginning and end locations.....just what are some of the places you'd go! But feel free to post elaborate itineraries if you want!
  13. Hi friends! Just a beginner/amateur fossil hunter(?)/collector(?) (lol) here and I thought I would ask to see if anyone knows about any cool places around Newcastle - NSW - that I can go fossil hunting? Particulary one that is open to the public (perhaps a beach, hiking trail, etc) and that does not require me to have to call anyone or ask for permission! (and also that I am legally allowed to take the fossils I find hehe) I tried looking on this forum to see if there was any posts about fossil places in Newcastle but I thought I would just ask anyway!
  14. Good afternoon all! I'm trying to plan a fossil hunting trip with my daughters before the winter fully sets. I'm a trained Biologist, but new to the area. Can anyone suggest a nice location to fossil hunt in eastern Ontario or Quebec? Thanks everyone! Manuel
  15. Hey guys, I just posted a new video of me fossil hunting in Whitby the section of cliffs underneath the Abbey. I couldnt believe what my first find was, and where i actually found it

    My 2nd Trip To American Fossil!

    Hello all! This summer I took my yearly trip to Wyoming, and with my luck I again came back with several extremely incredible fossils! I found many less fish this time around, but I did find several more rare ones! I probably only found around 50 fish in the 3 days I was there. I found 8 Phareodus, including 2 juveniles! I found only 1 Mioplosus this year, the fish seems to be avoiding me sadly... I found 3 Priscacara, including a very large Priscacara serrata! I found an interesting Hypsiprisca preserved beautifully on an algea layer, also found several more Amia scales, but one of my favor

    Ammonites Galore

    Here's a fossil hunting video I recently filmed where i had a very productive day. Feel free to watch if you're interested.
  18. Hey Fossil Gang! I was exploring the forest near my dorm and found a small area where the ground had a sparse layer of tiny, white, spiral shells. I'm no expert but they didn't seem like snail shells, I could be wrong. I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips for this situation. What should I do? I thought I could start by collecting some of the surface level shells and maybe even dig around a bit. I imagine just the tiny shells would be pretty common but do y'all think there could be greater treasures laying in wait? What sort of basic equipment/tools should I use? Any he

    Fossil hunting legal question

    Hi all- I would think this has been answered but after searching I couldn't quite find an answer. I live in Dallas near White Rock Lake. There are a lot of creeks that branch off all through the Dallas area. I like to explore these on occasion (when I just want to get out on a Saturday) and for the most part I've been left alone (and had some success!). Does anyone have any "jurisdiction" over these creeks? I ask because I was exploring one that had houses on each side. OR actually their backyards that led to the house. Anyway, I was no where near someone's property (basically in the
  20. Good afternoon everyone! I will be staying in the South-Eastern part of France, near Draguignon (between Nice and Marseille) for a week in August. Are there any hunting sites nearby that you guys would advice me to look into? I have never hunted for fossils in rocks etc, all my fossils come from the Pleistocene. I'd be happy with anything! Best regards!
  21. Hunting the Mazon Creek last weekend, my wife found this piece in the creek while hunting for Mazon Creek Fossils. What do you think ?? Any help appreciated !! Thanks for checking it out !! Phil
  22. Hi this is my topic on fossil hunting in the Bois Blanc and Onondaga formation of southern Ontario. Not to far on the cliffs of Lake Erie by Dunnville Ontario there are lots of Outcrops of the Bois Blanc formation and Onondaga formation, there are a few Silurian outcrops in the town on the banks of the Grand River with a few fossils, but nothing like the Devonian Outcrops of Lake Erie’s cliffs. There mostly around Rock Point Provincial Park you can’t!! keep fossils here because it’s illegal to take fossils out of any provincial park. I’ve been collecting in these two formations for years, and

    Fossil hunting tools

    I am always interested in hearing about (and seeing photos of) tools used for fossil hunting. I have used all sorts and I currently received a new device for underwater viewing. It is called a Bathyscope.

    News on Dromaeosaurs pack hunting

    Just found this, but I’m not sure if it’s fully true considering the Deinonychus pack they discovered along with the Tenontosaurus. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/05/200506123751.htm

    First time hunting on my own

    I just wanted to share my joy at my first successful hunt! Now I have been picking up and excavating fossils my whole life but its always been quarried stone searching or someone elses established site. For those remember one of my earlier threads, this year I set out to find MY OWN SITE! Oklahoma (especially northwest/central OK) is not known well for fossils. But I set out and began researching and reading and mapping, then I began driving mile after mile of back-roads searching the outcrops and road cuts. 2 months ago I found a site that looked promising, but weather kept me
