  1. I don´t know if I can find the time to prepare fossil hunting trip reports for TFF regularly. However, I will at least try to prepare them regularly for my personal website in pdf format. I would like to share them with you. They are in German, though: Fossil Hunting Trips 2021 (link to my personal website) Thanks! Franz Bernhard
  2. It was hard to believe that six years had passed since I last visited the badlands of the San Juan Basin...if you are interested, I posted a few of those previous trips here and here. With a new field season upon us, @NMFOSSILS99 and I made our first (of hopefully many) exploratory mission to the Upper Cretaceous Kirtland/Fruitland badlands of the SJB...
  3. Hello all! I am trying to find some new areas around my place. So far there is not a single reference for fossils in this place, so I need somehow to choose some spots to prospect. There are some common rules like road cuttings, rivers & creeks that cut into the formations, abandoned quarries etc, all of which are beautifully presented in this post. However, I need to know how to take advantage of all information provided in a geological map. Which place would you check first for fossils? There are faults, borders between two geological ages etc.

    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
  5. Below is the a paper that provides the details of looking for dinosaurs with a gamma scintillator. Jones, R.R. and Chure, D.J., 1998. The recapitation of a Late Jurassic theropod dinosaur. GAIA: revista de geociências, (15), p.103-110. http://www.arca.museus.ul.pt/ArcaSite/obj/gaia/MNHNL-0000774-MG-DOC-web.PDF Other publications Jones, R.D. and Burge, D., 1995, January. Radiological surveying as a method for mapping dinosaur bone sites. In Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology (Vol. 15, suppl. 3, pp. 38A-38A) Yours,
  6. Today in my Utopia class in GCSU, The professor was talking about leisure activities in Utopias, and I casually asked if fossil hunting was a thing in any of them. She of course didn't know, but also replied saying that I may want to check out the Oconee River Greenway nearby. Obviously I checked Google maps to see where it was, and to my surprise, it's within walking distance: Another quick google search provided me with this brochure that stated that sedimentary rocks are exposed by this waterway at some point: http://www.oconeerivergreenway.org/uploads/6/5/3/8/65386

    Fossiliferous land for sale

    How hard is it to find fossil bearing land for sale? How expensive? I assume some geologic periods may be easier or less sought after than others.
  8. I still carry my trusty Geologic Map of New Mexico, tucked inside my gazatteer, right next to the BLM use maps. But this... ...mapView:Geologic Maps of the Nation... ...has been a wonderful prospecting tool. You can overlay geology onto road, topo and satellite imagery! Fossils, look out!...explorers are on the way. Happy Hunting! -P.

    Geocommunicator

    For those of us who live in or plan on visiting the "wild west" (USA), the interactive map on www.geocommunicator.gov may be a useful tool in your explorations. The site allows for the overlaying of BLM use (yellow squares of wilderness bliss ) boundaries onto road, topo and aerial maps! How cool is that? Upon opening the site, select "interactive maps". The map's upper tool bar lends the opportunity to zoom in and out, pan, label and identify areas by Lat./Long or UTM. You can even convert your map to a PDF and print! (though I will admit 'tis not as detailed as I would like) To the ri
