What should I bring for optimal fossil-hunting? I'd love to find a pocket with some shark teeth, and I'm hoping for (though not expecting) a concretion with something fun inside. I'd like to do a little sifting as well, I think. I'm going to have 2 brothers with me who I suspect would just like to dig for interesting things. I have some of those gold panning sifters, which I plan to bring. I'm also going to bring a couple of trowels, a bucket to put tempting chunks of matrix in for later, and a hammer and small chisel. Add in my tiny crowbar (it's about a foot long, but sturdy), and some fishhook cases and pill bottles for small items, and that sounds like a good setup. Is there any point in bringing a large-mesh fish net to kind of trawl in the water itself, see if I can dredge out some things that have been washed down into it, or am I better off just digging on land?
