I had the pleasure of arranging a special fossil hunt to the Red Beds of Texas - a famous Permian site that was originally described by Copes in 1870's and later by Romer. It's an old quarry on private land that we were able to take a group of 10 to hunt on. And I was corrected by our guide that it was really not so much a "hunt" as a "collect" because the fossils were literally EVERYWHERE! You could sit in a 10 foot radius circle and be picking up vertebrate material all day long! We collected for about 5 hours and everyone came away with some fabulous fossils. Lots of amphibian skull pieces
