  1. Sulphur River Texas!

    I did a half day hunt in Northeast Texas. It was hot! The big flathead catfish was keeping me company.
  2. Artifacts or Rocks?

    Any ideas if these are artifacts or just rocks?
  3. I finally bought my dream home which has a massive room to display my fossils and artifacts. It's still a work in progress but here's a sneak peak. I really need better lighting.
  4. Here's a couple of quick hunts I forgot to post from the last two weeks. Post Oak Creek and North Sulphur River Texas. I really like the ammonites.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Inferno at Brazil's National Museum causes 'irreparable' damage and grief By Claudia Dominguez, Flora Charner and Holly Yan, CNN, September 3, 2018 https://www.cnn.com/2018/09/02/americas/brazil-national-museum-fire-intl/index.html Brazil National Museum fire: Key treasures at risk, BBC News https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-45395774 Brazil museum fire: Funding cuts blamed as icon is gutted, BBC News https://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-45398084 Among the 20 million items presumed lost are a Maxakalisaurus skeleton, Bendegó meteorite, 11,500 year-old Luzia remains, Pompeii fresco, and countless Pre-Columbian artifacts. Luzia Woman - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luzia_Woman Yours, Paul H.
  8. Everything is dry and picked over around Northeast Texas but I decided to go hunting anyway. Luckily I found a nice shady creek to hunt. I found one nice Mastodon tooth cusp with great color and a couple of artifacts. My buddy found a few rough artifacts and one nice shark tooth.
  9. Dear fellow forum goers, These past few weeks have been quite busy, but that has not stopped me from going on the occasional fossil excursion. A few trips went by since my last posting and I decided to let some trips accumulate before posting again. On these trips I interacted with forum members @Woopaul5 and @frankh8147. The most recent trip was today, 08/12/18, and was somewhat productive. Frank found what we believe to be a part of a mosasaur brain case, which will surely be in his "finds of the year list". I was not as luck but ended up scoring a small point fragment and a jaw section of some fish. There were also some nice quality teeth that I found today. Other than this trip, I scored some nice finds on a few other trips throughout the two months. I hope you enjoy the finds, as I enjoyed finding them, and have a nice day. Kind regards, Trevor Overall Finds Stream Worn Shark's Teeth
  10. Florida Artifact Show Aug 25th

    Just found out about this today: DO NOT FORGET THE ONLY ARTIFACT SHOW IN FLORIDA IS AT THE END OF THIS MONTH. SAT THE 25TH. LOTS OF FOSSILS AND ANTIQUE BOTTLES AS WELL. 3 weeks from tomorrow; I will be there mostly because I am starved for fossil related activities. 2830 Gulf Trace Blvd, Holiday, Florida, 34691 (just North of Tampa on the Gulf). Plus my hunting buddy loves Artifacts and bottles
  11. I.D. help please

    I'm trying this a second time. I tried creating a post this morning but am unable to locate it anywhere. So, if this is a double post, please forgive me. This item was found on a ranch in central montana, judith basin county. We dig for native american artifacts. This was found by my 14 year old daughter, among the artifacts, under an old tree stump that i removed. I believe that it was brought in by ancient man. We have been digging for some time and do not typically find fossils here.

  14. Artifacts

  15. Surplus Finds in Home Decor

    With a little experience behind us, most collectors soon realize that we can’t display everything, and finds languish in boxes unseen for sometimes decades. Always mindful of economy of display space, I embarked on a mission to Target and executed a surgical strike on the Housewares Dept, egressing with 3 hollow glass lamps under arm. I like Pleistocene horse teeth, so the biggest lamp is loaded with nothing but them, showcasing the full color spectrum generally encountered in Texas terrace deposits around the state.
  16. 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.
  17. I had wanted to get out to the NSR earlier, after the big rains of a few weeks ago, but yesterday was my first chance. The water in the area I frequent was lower than expected, so the access was pretty good. Many previous footprints but I do not let that bother me, so many square feet of area, you can always find something. Finds were mostly small vertebrae and bone pieces, one possibly a portion of turtle plastron, similar to one I posted previously. Did have some luck with artifacts, found a couple within a foot of each other. Hard to make out in the photo, look for the quarters! Overall a good trip, you always want to find more.
  18. After working 28 thirteen hour days offshore I couldn't wait any longer to hunt so I headed to my favorite Northeast Texas creek. The temp when I left was 20 degrees which is really cold for my area. The creek was frozen but I had still had some area to hunt. I walked for miles and didn't find much then ended up finding everything around the bridge where I parked lol. I found more artifacts than fossils but did manage to find a Mosasaur vert & Mastodon tooth enamel.
  19. Here's a sample of my favorite teeth and artifacts. Most are personal finds from the Northeast Texas area.
  20. Mosasaur Vert & Artifacts

    From the album Northeast Texas Creek

  21. North Texas Creek Hunts

    I managed to get in 3 hunts on my 14 days off from offshore this time. I found more artifacts than fossils but I did manage to find a nice Mosasaur vert, shark teeth and a really old coke bottle. This is a mix from Post Oak Creek and one more creek that I hunt. I gave away all the teeth except for the perfect ones to my buddy since it was his first time ever hunting.
  22. Texas Creek Crawl

    just got back from vacation in Galveston with the family. Searched high and low for teeth and found nothing so had to hit the creeks closer to home. Hit a high traffic area of Post Oak Creek and did some crawling hoping to find some scraps and found surprisingly quite a bit. Hunted the first day for just a couple of hours and found quite a few P. whipplei, lots of shards and a Native American scraper that was the surprise for the day. On the second day I spent a short hour and a half and found several more P. whipplei a nice complete Cretolamna and two complete S. raphiodon teeth along with the normal shards. I also found a second little scraper just as I was about to leave. That is four scrapers and a point in the last three trips. Not sure why this creek seems to be turning up more artifacts lately but no complaints. We had rain yesterday and the creek has surely flushed up some new things so should be good for someone this week. Thanks for looking. Day 1:
  23. Great hot day on POC

    Sister called and asked to take my son for the day and my wife said she had things to do so I took that as my cue to head out to the creek. I really wanted to hit the North Sulphur with all the rain and missed my chance Friday morning with the water still being a bit high for my taste, but I didn't have that kind of time. My wish list for the day consisted of any artifact and a new type of Ptychodus from the bucket list. I headed to a spot I have only hit a couple of times and after working my way down through all of the muck from the flooding, I finally hit a gravel bar. The first bar provided a couple of broken Cretodus and one small Ptychodus. There were absolutely no foot prints in the fresh deep mud so I was excited to work my way downstream. I was a little disappointed after the first half hour and only a few broken teeth but as I worked my way downstream it improved. Found several nice P. whipplei and then a very cool point, a scraper, and a very nice what I am guessing is a plesiosaur tooth (which I have in the ID forum). Not on the list but one I would gladly add if I had known it was a possibility. Found some bison teeth and lots of bone as well as one very nice Cretodus lateral tooth. I really wanted to stay longer but had to make it back home for my "curfew". Overall a good two hours and I am sure the best was left behind. Thanks for looking.
