Peace River May 16
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI also had a good day on the Peace River, FL this past Monday. Topped off by a chance meeting with @Shellseeker Jack. I wanted to share the best of what I found that day. I was lucky to find a gravel patch while prospecting in an area I haven't hunted before. The results (minus the usual various shark teeth)- Right side of photos: 2 - Glyptodont osteoderms 2 - partial Armadillo scutes Left side: 1 - partial limb bone (deer?) 2 - Turtle leg spurs Left center: Partial deer a
Peace River Visit
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsGot back out to the Peace River, FL yesterday. I usually try and get there by 0800 AM but with the cold overnight temperatures this week I delayed my start time until closer to 0900 AM to let the sun rise and warm things up a bit. I was glad I did so as I found the sun high enough to be warming up the spot I had targeted for the day. The morning was mostly a lot of the usual small miscellaneous shark teeth. I did find one small, and I mean small, alligator tooth. A partial small shark vert also turned up. Rounding out the morning were several nice Hemis, upper and lower, a nice size part
Back to the Peace River
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsGot back to the Peace River Fl yesterday. When I set off in the kayak at 0820 am it was breezy and a chilly 53* F. The wetsuit was definitely needed if I was going to stand in the river all day. The water was crystal clear and with the sun out it made for a beautiful day. I took some photos after the sun had risen enough to clear the overhanging trees and light up the water. I got back to the gravel bed I have been working on my last few visits and found it undisturbed. Its not off the beaten path and with the water so clear I had feared others might have not
Peace River Hunt
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsGot out on the river yesterday for what turned out to be a productive day. It was a chilly morning so the wetsuit was a necessity. Even if the air temp is warmer the water stays cold throughout the day. I returned to a gravel bed I found earlier in the week and got right down to digging and sifting. Every clean out of the sifter provided a good number of various small shark teeth. Tiger, Sand Tiger, Snaggle Tooth were abundant. A few small partial megs and even a baby Mako made an appearance. Below is a picture of the best of the shark teeth along with an alligator tooth and what I b

Peace River Trip Photos
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsIt's been a challenging season on the Peace River for various reasons. Was sidelined for most of Feb and March with some minor health issues and forbidden by my doctor (and wife) from going in the water until all was healed. Add to that what appears to be a tremendous amount of sand built up in some of my favorite hunting spots by last seasons heavy rains. Then throw in a lot of debris restricting portions of the river to narrow passages. All together it has hindered my luck with any major finds. Can only hope for some of the success our friend Jack - @Shellseeker has been having lately!
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
Michelle9220 posted a topic in Fossil IDI would like help telling me something about this full almost perfect fossilized shell I just found, and where I can see more like it.
It was a good day on the Peace River yesterday. Started out a bit cool at 60 degrees but got up into the high 70's by the afternoon. I was pretty much prospecting as I moved farther north up river from the area I had been hunting for the last few months. This required a portage of my equipment and inflatable kayak over a set of rapids. It went well and I was back on my way in under 10 minutes. I came upon an area that showed signs of previous hunting and decided to check it out. I started probing and found a large gravel bed. So the digging began. I got numerous small shark teeth of al
Ivory & More on the Peace River
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHad to get back to the Peace River today. Eight days since the last trip and I was getting anxious to get back to the spot where I found the partial tusk to see if i could find more. It was a warm day but overcast and windy, so the wetsuit was in order again to combat the water temp and the breeze. It made for a comfortable day of digging and I was able to spend 5 1/2 hours in the water. First check of the river bank when getting out of the kayak yielded a nice 3/4" Hemi getting the day off to a good start. I then worked my way back to the area where I found the piece of ivory tusk on my
