    Billings OK

    Going to Billings, OK to the Atmosphere Radiation Measurement site with my daughter and the Ada Gem Club this Saturday (May 28, 2022). Hoping there might be some fossil fun in the area too. Anyone have any experience fossil hunting the Billings area?
  2. Recently just got back from a trip on Tybee Island! During this trip I went out looking for shark teeth several times a day, and even did a tour with Sundial Charters! Overall in 6 days I found over 150 shark teeth and countless other fossils! I'll be posting them on here! Here's the coolest tooth I found actually on Tybee, I believe it's a Great Hammerhead.

    50 minute fossil hunt

    Today we went to a great spot we don't go often. The first 50 minutes were great, then it started raining,I can't imagine what I would have found if I got to stay a good 3 hours. We got two gator osteoderms, including the smallest one I've ever seen (below the large one) some gator teeth. Multiple mammal teeth (follow link below message to get to the ID message) horse frags, gar scales, turtle shell, and other weird fossils. Again, please go to the ID chat just to check if you can help.
  4. For my birthday a couple of weeks ago, we had gone to the museum of ancient life at thanksgiving point in Utah. Here are some of the pictures that I took. Sorry that they're a bit blurry. The Gorgosaurus in the lobby. The prep station has been up and going. I think the fossils that are being prepped are from the morrison formation. Here are some vertebrae that had been prepared. The trilobites And TFF's favorite trilobite A Ceratosaurus, the brown is real bone Close up on the skull Some Supersaurus stuff, all on loan from

    Preferred Calver Cliffs Spots

    Hey guys, I was wondering which state parks or locations you guys preferred when going to hunt in the Calvert county area around Southern Maryland and around the Chesapeake? Curious to what the opinions are on the best areas around here. Thanks, Skidush
  6. I don't know if this is the right place for this tread, as it's not really a trip, it's more like a few hours of outing. It won't call it hunting either, the fossils are underwater so it's more like fishing. Anyway, this is one of my many trips to this place, it's not very far, and it allows me to take a nature walk on weekends. Do not expect to see anything bigger than a few centimeters, this is the late Ordovician, historically the formation of rocks in the area is due to its immersion, towards the end of the Ordovician geological era, which led to the establishment of marine sed

    Fossil sites near McKinney, Texas

    Hello all, here next week I'll be going to McKinney, Texas for about 6 days to visit my father. I'm not familiar with any fossil formations in the area, but would like to take my dad out with me for a fossil hunting trip. I thought I would come here to see if anyone around the area is familiar with it, or has any advice on the land, or recommended tools for out in the field. I'm used to harder Mississippian age rocks in Missouri, so I'm not sure what I should pack up for the trip tool wise. I plan on doing some research of my own in a day or two about the area, when I can make time. Any extra

    Kemmerer WY trip 2021

    Hi everyone, My third trip to Kemmerer, Wyoming is in one week. I’m going to be digging in the Green River information. Last trip, I came home with a whole Mioplosus labracoides. This time, we have two friends from Japan digging with us. My goal for this trip is to find ANY decent fossil to show my Japanese friends who are digging with us. I don’t care what we find, as long as we all have fun. The only problem is, their suitcases are full. They can’t bring fossils back to Japan with them because they don’t have room in their suitcases. As a resul
  9. So my wife has a business trip coming up in Sept. I'm going with her and want stuff to do on the few days she's at the office there. End of the week we are hitting up some museum places around Morrison. I'm also thinking of hitting up the Florissant Fossil Quarry, because that's at least one place I can go and find something myself. I mean I'm certainly going to buy a few fossils on the trip because well why not. So there are a few things I'll visit without her just because I don't mind the hikes. I'd kind of like to find a few things myself and I know absolutely nothi

    Europe advice

    Hi. This summer I have intention to make a palaeontological trip in a Europe location and i want some advice on which one I should choose. I want to find dinosaur fossils or reptile or plants fossils, preferably a location not too far from Italy ( my country) like England. Can you help me?
  11. Ive been back for a few days now and finally got around to checking out all the fish we brought home. I also met up with @Fossilis Willis and his buddy Jacob. Nice guys and boy o boy did they hit paydirt! We found lots of the smaller stuff but looks like maybe 4 juvenile noto's?!!! As I was going through all these little slabs I was putting the fish that were closer to the rock and in really good shape into my sons tote and the ones i or he didnt want to mess with into the "for sale' tote. This trip really beat me up and may be my last but was great fun to be out again. Goin

    Kemmerer, Wyoming trip 3

    Hi everyone, So, I’m going back to Kemmerer, Wyoming for the third time on August 12, 2021. My entire family will be going as well as two friends from Japan. I’m going, courtesy of fishdig.com. I know the two from Japan will have a great time. I’m sure I’ll have a good time also. I wonder what I’ll find this time. Last time, I found an awesome Mioplosus labracoides. Picture attached. Jared

    Charleston SC

    Heading down to Charleston SC, can anyone share locations or spots where I have a good chance of finding a Meg ? I can’t scuba dive so that’s out of the question. I was just in Florida and we only found some fragments in the Peace River :/
  15. Hi everyone, So, after 11 years of collecting fossils around Europe (and this is so much time ‘cause I’m pretty young) I’m pretty bored of not finding Dino and reptile bones (except for a Crocodile tooth set). So I was thinking (and I ask this mainly to the Americans): Other than the associations that you have to pay them like 100$ per day or 1000$ a week (Paleo adventures, Hell Creek fossils, ecc.), there are other quarries in Hell Creek that you don’t have to pay a lot? I actually see people that go by themself or with their 2 friends excavating in Hell Cr
  16. Despite the pandemy and various restrictions which occured, it happened we managed to make quite a few trips. i did, in my opinion, numerous good finds, specially in the trilobites department. So this post shows the nicest trilo i found in 2020. We visited 3 different sites with various luck. The first noticable trilo of the year was found a few days only before the first lockdown. It was a very happy split, you can see on the pictures the chisel was very close. So here it is : Ectillaenus giganteus Later, in the e
  17. Waited awhile to post this as I was waiting for my Christmas present to organize my findings. Trip was on 11-28-2020. Took my family of 5 plus a friend of my daughters. It was cold and raining the entire time we were there but everyone had a blast. Bought some cheap ponchos, didn’t work. Discovered that once the clay got wet and sticky it made no difference in what we were wearing. The kids ended up taking their shoes off and going barefoot. It was a mess but a lot of fun. Didn’t think microfossils would interest me but they did. Will plan another trip to see what the site looks like dry. Here
  18. I have read all of the threads online and on our forum, and I am excited for my first trip to the Whiskey Bridge. It will probably be around the first of the year. Any personal tips would be appreciated. Should I take a sifting screen, and if so, how wide should the “holes” be? I am going to try and build my own(that is a whole another issue). Thanks for any help, in advance.
  19. I have been looking into Maryland fossil sites, and am trying to plan a day trip, but I realize it is Labor day weekend, which can complicate things. How busy do the usual fossil beaches get in Maryland? I currently have Purse, Matoaka, and Calvert Cliffs on my list Should I just wait til next weekend? When is the best time to hit the beaches? I am especially looking for a Ecphora gardnerae, if there are any sites which would be better to focus my search at? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!

    Kemmerer, Wyoming trip 2

    Exciting news! Looks like I'm going back to Kemmerer Wyoming with my whole family! We're all doing a special trip there. I'm going to get in some fossil digging at the Green River formation, courtesy of fishdig.com. I've been there once before, last time I went there, I discovered a large Phareodus Testis. Also, my brothers two friends from Japan are coming to join us for this trip. I'm certain this will be Unforgettable to them. The date is to be announced. Probably end of July, early August.
  21. Hello everyone! This trip report is a bit late but I have been trying to identify and get better photos of some fossils before posting this, First some pictures at the actual site:
  22. I’m driving back to Montana from Kansas this weekend and wanted to stop in South Dakota or eastern Montana to do some quick Dino hunting. Does anyone have any advice for the badlands area or western Montana? Preferably the badlands area. I heard you can just surface hunt in the badlands national park, but wanted to see what you guys had to say. Kind of a broad area. thanks

    Upcoming Fossil trip

    Hello, So, I'm going to be going on a fossil hunting trip with my dad to Kemmerer Wyoming in August. It's basically a fossil Safari. We found it on the website fishdig.com. my dad has a co-worker who went, and he had a great time and found many fish fossils! So, me and my dad are going to be going in August! I will keep you all updated on what happens on the Safari when the time comes. I will post pictures when the time comes also. Jared
  24. I am leaving shortly to spend just over a week in England, more specifically in the Liverpool area, and will be taking a day trip along the coast of Wales to Rhyl as well. I've done some basic research and found that Liverpool sits right on top of Triassic bedrock, and Rhyl on top of Permian bedrock. Are there any sites that would be within my realm to visit and collect at? If so, are there any rules and regulations that I, an amateur from outside the country, need to know about before I go? If there are none, are there any noteworthy shops that I may be able to visit where I
  25. Starting Monday, I'm going to have a weeklong trip across multiple parts of Italy. The main attractions being Naples and Sicily, visiting the volcanoes of the country (people may not know that volcanology is my second biggest interest). If there are days of downtime, I'm wondering if there are any spots I should check out while I'm there. Thanks in advance!
