  1. Was back out at the Peace River yesterday for only my third visit this season. Water levels and flow are reasonable at this point, although pulling up a shovel of matrix in the middle of the river still has quite a bit washed off. This time I was on the water by 7:30 am and headed up stream to a spot I have hunted often in past years. I was curious as to what changes the hurricane might have caused. I was pleasantly surprised! Last year water flow in this area was significantly restricted because of debris and it had turned into a stagnant pool. It was frustrating because in prior years I

    Tooth trip

    Had a great trip again at the spot. Couldn't believe the uniqueness of a couple finds. Had a blast and probly ruined my sleeping for next few days, lol. Can't think about anything except getting back for more!!

    Hudson, Fl

    Is there any spot we can go for Meg/shark teeth in the Hudson Florida area ? I know about Venice but wanted to see if anyone had luck a little bit further up the coast
  4. Hello! I’ve been tracking my surrounding areas in the last year finding new spots that yield great things. And I’ve seen several people I’ve met in passing hit Gainesville with great success! I’ve read that there were some newer crack downs on fossil hunting in the city limits and I’m reaching out for any further information or even any local hunters willing to get out and breathe some smooth fresh air this Sunday, December 12th? This may be one of my last hunts for a while due to a beautiful life addition coming up! Ive done plenty of reading up on Hogstown and Ra

    Peace River Adventure

    Got back to the Peace River yesterday for what turned out to be a beautiful day with a variety of finds and new friends. On arrival at the river a little before 8 am the temperature was a balmy 48*F. The temperature was projected to rise into the mid 70's but I started out the day in my wetsuit and dive boots with hoodie overall to combat the early morning chill. I usually hunt north of Payne Creek State Park but decided to go south today where Megalodon teeth are more easily found. I haven't targeted the big shark teeth since last spring. I returned to the area where I found m
  6. Anyone having any luck this winter so far along the Potomac? Found bunches of sand shark teeth so far. Tides been high lately haven't been able to do anything this past weekend. Just checking to see if anyone has been finding anything good.

    Fossil finds from 7/20/19

    My finds from 7/20/19. My location had lots of people on it, but surprisingly I did good. I found a corner of a meg, a nice bull shark tooth, A nice sand tiger tooth, And lots of bone. All of these where found near Beaufort SC.
  8. I just purchased a Badger Air-Brush Co. 260-1, but from the looks of the previous posts the abrasive media that comes with it is junk. I'm going to try to use it on the top "rough part" of Meg Teeth that I get out of Venice. I've tried the vinegar and dental picks, but I don't like the color bleaching that can happen, nor can I get into every single crack with a dental pick on encrusted teeth. What do you guys recommend for me to try with this brush? Here's an example of what we normally pull out of the ocean before any cleaning.
  9. Hello everyone, I would first like to preface my post with thanking three members who replied to many emails with advice and insight into my past week hunting the Peace River in Florida, @shellseeker (jack), @digit (ken), and @Sacha (john). A very big thanks to John for allowing me to join him on 2 separate days and honestly, really show me how to harvest fossils the correct way. I wouldn't have 3/4 of the fossils I collected without his assistance. That being said, I was able to find my first megs, some horse material, Scutes, tons of awesome hemis, and a few other odds and ends.
  10. Added three new teeth in recent times to my collection of exotic meg teeth, I'd like to share since there,s not to many images from these localities out there, the photos maybe in shabby quality because I pulled them directly from my Instagram page to save time. 1) This partial tip of a meg was found in the Chiba prefecture of Japan! Acquiring this, even just a fragment was a real pain in the butt as megs from Japan are extremely scare. 2) Even though its not a Meg of course but still being the closest ancestor, this 3.1inch chubutensis tooth was found at a land site in
  11. I sent these off to Matt the sharks tooth repairer and he did a really good job. I bought these many years ago but realized I would never get around to it. Matt did a really good job!! I am very happy with these!!! RB
  12. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of megs for the US as requested, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on a budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. I estimate I spent no more than $1,100 in total for this small collection. Tag me if there's any teeth you'd like to take a close

    Another Meg Ledges Trip

    A couple of members have been asking about my recent trip to dive the ledges off Wilmington. Here is a quick trip summary. We chartered a fast 43ft boat that took us out 42 miles to an area that is a little over 100ft deep. That takes two hours of running to get there. Then we dive using big 120cu ft HP steel tanks filled with Nitrox (air with more oxygen mixed in it), so that we can stay on the bottom a bit longer than if we were using air. We did two dives on the first day, and returned back 5 more days in a row, diving 3 tanks every day after the first day. We dove 17 dives in six days, a
  14. Years ago my wife and I hunted the Arner Ranch in NE for Oligocene vert material. The trip was led by Frank Garcia, and a number of collectors that came with him were from FL. I cultivated some new friendships on that trip, and one was a gentleman named Rob. Having collected previously with some of the same guys, Rob and I became fast friends. Last year I guided/pointed Rob around Texas for 2 weeks. His trip was well timed in the aftermath of massive statewide flooding, and he went home with huge amounts of varied material. His truck was literally sagging in the rear end on the way home.
  15. I spent most of another day in a spot I've worked the last 4 or 5 times out, but had only moderate results this time. It's getting very hard to dig since the water is still cold, I'm wearing a 5 mil wetsuit and I'm up to my neck in the hole with not bottom showing yet. I wore an 18 pound weight belt for much of the day to keep me on the bottom and give me some leverage with the shovel. It's very tiring, but I really like the spot because the gravel is big and there is tons of bone mixed in......just not much in good shape......yet. Anyway, with guests coming next week for a little trip, I want
  16. Chris and I went out today to scout two new areas but neither produced so we went to another spot where we have had some good luck with small Megs. Most tend to be beach worn and are generally black in color but we find quite a few and we have both found some really nice ones it there occasionally in our hunts. These are all the whole ones I found today, the one in the lower left has evidence of cusps which is a first for me: ) Would've been nice if it was in a little better shape but I'll take with I can get : )
