  1. Fossil?

    This was sold as an arrowhead at an antique store near Huntsville, Alabama. (That is all the information I have on the locality.) I’m wondering if there is a partial plant fossil in it?
  2. My finds from North Sulphur River near Ladonia on Saturday, December 22. The weather was great, the water was low and competition was moderate. Pleasant surprise finding an arrowhead. The little vert and the plate-like bone were both found near the Hwy 34 bridge.
  3. North Sulphur River

    I had a fun trip looking for shark teeth and artifacts yesterday at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a large Enchodus tooth, nice shark tooth, mosasaur jaw section, other assorted fossils and some cool artifacts. Weather was perfect.
  4. Had another opportunity to hit the North Sulfur after several good rains. Once again, fresh rock bars everywhere and my buddy and I went home with our pockets full! I found at least 15 mosasaur verts, 20+ teeth, a nice coprolite, shark vert, etc.. I included a few pictures of some of my better stuff. The 5 points pictured together were found in the NSR They include a couple killers! For the old, pointy rock hunters, I included a pic of all the points from this weekend. Found 20+ in one spot in Fannin county that was clearly a large Caddo camp. Enjoy! Just a thought... I get asked a lot where I go and how i find so much stuff. I never really give up my exact locations because I work hard to find them. However, I want others to be able to enjoy this place as much as I do so here are a few tips to help folks who are new to hunting the north sulfur. Fossils and points don't travel upstream after being washed away from their spots. The further downstream you can search, the better. I'm really tall and my eyes are really far away from the ground- I know this sounds silly but my point is that the closer you can get to the ground the better. I find lots of my smaller stuff on my hands and knees and use readers to really "zoom" in. Good knee pads are essential. Proper footwear. In the winter I usually use a tennis shoe with a heavy duty 5mm neoprene boot as a sock. I also screw ice studs from Stabilicers into the outsole to keep from slipping on the blue, butt breaking rock. When walking the river, this trick is a necessity after you try it once and realize its benefits. Points are easy to find once you train your eyes. Learn to recognize the colors of flint and other common materials. Recognizing blade edges helps me. Learn where the indians camped. Lots of reading and scouting involved. Good luck!
  5. Due to the hurricane I got an extra day off from offshore so I hit the North Sulphur River for a few hours. I found a nice big Tylosaur vert, small mosasaur vert, fish ribs, arrowhead and a big Native American chopper tool. The arrowhead is ugly but I like it lol.
  6. Short NSR Hunt!

    I got in a 3 hr hunt before the rain and flooding. Once the water started coming up I had to make a quick exit but still got wet. I managed to find a few things.
  7. I'm Back!

    I had a great day on the North Sulphur River Texas. I kayaked a few miles but found most of my quality items right by the first bridge and surrounded by tracks. The shark verts were in situ coming out of the clay. I only found 3 but I feel more will come out with another rise. I will come back and check the location. The big piece of turtle shell looked like old metal in the water so I'm sure people had been walking over it. The mosasaur tooth is nice but broken on one side. The artifacts were a nice bonus.
  8. I walked in tracks all day hunting but still managed a few finds. I really like the coprolite full of little fish bones and the Pleistocene horse ankle bone. I believe the little fish jaw is Saurodon.
  9. Morning Northeast Texas creek hunt.
  10. Fun morning hunt at NSR. Pretty good sized shark tooth for NSR.
  11. I saw the first opportunity to get back to the North Sulphur River yesterday when the temps were going to be below normal for a change. There was a really nice breeze blowing down the river. Went to a spot on the river that I have only been to once before and access is pretty poor. Thanks to whomever added the rope, it helped, especially getting out! Quantity of the finds were low but the quality of what I found was great. Found the largest Tylosaurus tooth I have ever found with a diameter just under an inch. Also a shark tooth and one nice mosasaur vertebrae. I always enjoy the chance to find an artifact, ever though they are rare, or at least for me they are? I liked the way that JarrodB displayed his artifact recently, so I photographed this one the same and it turned out pretty good. Not sure the type, could be a Marshall, usually I find Gary's, so this was a nice departure. I will be watching for another cooler than normal Texas summer day to get back to this spot.
  12. I only had a couple of hours so I stayed right below the creek bridge. I had a couple of cool finds.
  13. I haven't had much time to hunt lately but I did manage to squeeze in a North Sulphur River creek hunt. My finds were not great but I did manage to find a nice variety. The fossil horse cannon bone is probably my favorite due to the preservation. It's solid rock. Lol my grandson carried it around the house all night when I brought it home. The Xiphactinus vert, old bottles and artifacts were a nice bonus to the usual Mosasaur material. This creek has some killer flint in it so I can see a nice arrowhead coming soon.

  18. I went on a 6 1/2 mile kayak adventure with a couple of friends on the North Sulphur River. We started off the day at 7AM by seeing 2 bald eagles and almost getting one truck stuck in the mud. We managed to get the truck out and started our adventure. As soon as I got down by the bridge I found one of my best artifacts to date and a nice piece of mastodon tooth enamel. We got a mile or so in and something made me ask my friend if he had the keys to his truck that was parked 6 1/2 miles downstream? Lol he had left them in the other truck without thinking. He went back and got his keys and the adventure begin. We saw very little footprints the entire trip. We didn't find many artifacts but I filled up a 1 gallon ziplock with mosasaur bones and other random fossils. One of my friends found his first shark vert, mosasaur vert and point so he was really excited. I gave my new hunter friend all my lower quality items and didn't bother taking pics of them. The water was low in some places so we had to drag the kayaks a lot but it was fun. We were finding so much stuff that we realized we would never make it the other vehicle before night if we did not quit hunting and paddle. It was so hard passing by untouched bars lol. We managed to make it back to the bridge by 7PM which was 12 hours later. Getting the kayaks up the steep bridge at the second location took all 3 men and a long rope. I got home at 9:30 PM. I'm sore but found some great fossils and artifacts. My phone died early in the trip so I missed out on some great pics. For some reason I can only post a few pics at a time since the latest update.
  19. I explored a new creek spot on the North Sulphur River and had a good day with a nice variety. The Native American pottery and artifacts were a nice surprise at NSR. I rode over to Post Oak Creek only to find my favorite spot posted so I explored a new spot for one hour and found a few nice teeth.
  20. What A Trip!

    My hunting partner cancelled on me so I decided to try out some new spots alone in Northeast Texas. My luck was bad! I started off my day with a leaking boot in 35 deg weather. At my next stop I had three dogs across the creek growling and barking at me. I figured they would go away. I was wrong! They came barreling down into the creek aggressively towards me. The largest of the three was determined to bite me while the others growled. I went to war with my 5 ft hickory walking stick. After a couple of solid hits I won the battle and they retreated. They climbed back to the top of the creek bank and growled and barked at me for another 30 minutes or so. I found a few items and walked a mile back to my truck only to realize I had lost my phone. I started to give up and just report my phone lost but decided to look for it. I hiked the mile back through the woods down into the creek and somehow managed to find it. I did manage to find a nice size shark vert, fish vert and a couple of artifacts. My Brazos hickory walking stick has saved me more times than I can count from hogs, dogs and waist deep mud. It's a little heavy but worth it.
  21. Here's a few of my finds from my last couple of Northeast Texas creek hunts. It's been pretty slow but I'm trying again tomorrow. I did find a killer Ginsu shark tooth and cool fish vert with partial process. I didn't know what the little penny trinket thing was until an older gentleman told me lol. The one vert with four pics is Pleistocene but I have no clue from what. We did find a large nest of cottonmouths where two males were fighting for a large female. We saw herds of wild hogs and had quite the kayak adventure. One kayak trip was 5 miles deep in the woods where we had to go over 7 log piles with the kayaks. I'm also unsure what the little white tooth is with multiple pics by the trinket. It has thick enamel whatever it is. Hope you enjoy the pics.
  22. Fossils & Artifacts

    Not many fossils on this hunt but plenty of artifacts. Did manage to find one good size mosasaur vert and one pristine shark tooth. I ran into a mother hog and her babies, numerous other herds of hogs, snakes and more spiders than you can count. I also sunk in mud & water up to my chest and I'm 6ft 4 lol. North Texas creek hunt.
