  1. Hi! Basically the title! Going on a hunt soon and was wondering where along the Potomac I should go to hunt? Any parks, etc? thanks!
  2. So I went to see a client of mine this morning in a town I haven’t been to before There was a crystal shop which I popped in to They had this piece of banded iron formation (approx 5cm across). But she didn’t know where it was collected from. Anyone have any idea ? @MarcoSr, @Wrangellian ???
  3. Is there a way to mark fossil locations on like Google my map easily? Maybe even add a photo which uses it's coordinates to place it self in the map at the right location. Or a map that auto tracks where you walk? I find way to much to manually track it all. Any suggestions is welcome, thanks.
  4. I did lots of online searching on which states trilobites have and haven't been found in, and compiled this. Its not as straight forward as you might think. Green means trilobites have been found in that state on the surface and are native to that area. Yellow means technically a trilobite has been found there but was found below the surface or the rocks are not native to the state. Red means no trilobite has ever been found in the state except for when humans have transported them there. Green: Alaska, Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Col
  5. Lee Creek Mine, of Aurora, NC? Sharktooth Hill, of Bakersfield, CA? Venice, FL? Indonesia? Chile? Peru?

    Bough this long time ago and lost all information. Does anyone knows what is this? Period?
  7. Hello all This fossil fish is from an old collection. I think it might be Paraelops sp. from the Santana formation in Brazil, but I'm not certain. I'm also not entirely sure if it's completely original. Anyone who has an idea what species this is, what location it comes from and most importantly, is it real? Thanks in advance
  8. Figured this might be quite interesting. Post your fossils that are just found at one location. I'll post two small blocks of Pachystopheus fossils, which I believe are only found in South Gloucestershire--Aust Cliff and Garden Cliff. And a Hypsilophodon vertebra which is only found at Isle of Wight--I think at just Brook Bay too.
  9. In a few days, I am heading to Tahliquah,OK and am thinking of checking out any fossil sites. Anyone have a suggestion? My cousin said there’s a mountain range in that area that he has found shells, but he also has a pretty serious drug problem and could be confused. Any tips will be greatly appreciated.

    Fossil Locations

    I live in Aurora Colorado and was looking for places to go fossil hunting, I’ve already been to Florissant and while it was a great place I also want to look for other locations. I want it to be a 4 hour or less drive which I know really limits the are but I want it to be a day trip not a weekend trip. Dinosaur Colorado and Douglas pass are all far away and I don’t think you can fossil hunt anywhere near dinosaur ridge. I’d be willing to go out of state but only if it’s within 4 hours so like south east Wyoming, south west Nebraska and west Kansas.

    Lower Cambrian Trilobites in South Central PA?

    Hey there everyone. I’m currently up in New York hunting for fossil, and tomorrow I’ll be riding through PA and have been itching to collect at the Kinzers Formation and was wondering if anybody in the forum was familiar with any public access areas to find any Cambrian material? I’ve done a fair amount of reading and it seems like a lot has either been over-collected or is in closed quarries. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
  12. Thought i'd ask about an area I revisited to see if it seems like a good spot to start looking for fossils. It's a mine dump, most of it seems to be shale I think (is it?) Means I don't I have to dig, but most of it is pretty shattered.

    Shark River Location

    I was looking into going to Shark River NJ and I was wondering at which part of Shark River cuts through formation as it is pretty long. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
  14. I'm still learning how to select fossil hunting sites. Unfortunately any of the common ones that everybody goes to is over 6 hours away and doesn't turn up more than shark teeth. Would the area I selected on this map be suitable for hunting? My concern is that it's sandy, but I obviously can't tell what lies below that or right along the banks. I would primarily be hunting in or near the water. Any thoughts on this location, or any locations that are within two hours of Biloxi, MS would be appreciated. Thanks! -C

    Fish I.D.

    I have this fish that's been in the family for 20 or 30 years, but no one seems to remember where it came from or what species of fish! Anyone have any ideas as to the species or possible location? Thanks!

    A return: Tales of my uncle's truck travels

    Again, it's been a while. Today I've been at my Mom's memorial service, as she passed away in the past week, effectively leaving me without parents. It's been really hard for me to feel good about much anything recently, so here's something else to think about for a change: After the service, my uncle Austin came to me to say he found a fossil. Usually he just jokingly comes to me with a chunk of basalt, saying it's an "alien bone" This time was different, though. He presented me with this: There's a good number of bryozoans, I think a few crin

    Eocene Conifer Plant Fossil?

    Hello everyone, I got this piece at an estate sale on Saturday, huge fossil, 7.8 inch/15.7 inch (20 cm x 40 cm), I'm not sure the provenience. Any help will be much appreciated! Thank you.
  18. I’m in Birmingham for a few days. Does anyone know of any cool fossil shops or cool places to go? Thank you in advance. Sincerely, J
  19. I am desperately trying to find some places to collect where i live in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. There is some woods near my house and the path ways are filled what i believe to be coal? Could this be an indicator that fossils are around?
  20. I keep hearing about Penn/Miss sites near the GA/AL border, and seeing that my collection is severely lacking, I am dying to find a formation exposure that isn't on the opposite end of the globe from where I am. I found some hope of finding a place with this scholarly article on NW GA (though it's an article that's older than my grandparents): https://epd.georgia.gov/sites/epd.georgia.gov/files/related_files/site_page/B-62.pdf 2 formations stuck out from what I could make of it from my first quick skim: • Vandever Formation • Rockcastle Formation

    Resources for choosing sites

    Hi guys, I was wondering if you had any resources or methods you like to use when choosing sites to fossil hunt? Are there maps of public land? Are the only options fossil specific parks, and asking someone with land? Whats your scoop/etiquette? Places within a couple hours from Central Texas? Thanks!
