UTRockhoundsnowinFL posted a topic in Fossil IDFirst request for information after a few weekends hunting the Peace River in Florida. Any help with identifying if these are fossils or other? Very curious on the amber, translucent items, the largest is hollow. Thanks! -Mark
joshuajbelanger posted a topic in FloridaI've never been out of Brownsville. I'll probably head South once I get there. I'm expecting the river to be extremely low. I don't sift, so I guess I'll be looking for holes. Anybody familiar with the area? North or south more promising? Everyone is welcome to come. -J
Hi - first post! A friend and I are taking our three kids (ages 6-8) to the Peace River this weekend. Our plan is to screen for fossils all afternoon Saturday, camp in tents at Brownville Park Saturday night, and maybe do a little more screening on Sunday if everyone is up for it. I hope the water won't be too cold for the kids to last for at least a few hours. A year ago my son and I camped at Pioneer Park and did well with small shark teeth and many other fossils in the Wauchula, Zolfo, and Gardner areas. I've never stayed at Brownville, but based on my reading it might be more fun than staying at Pioneer Park in terms of being on a more remote stretch of the river and possibly nearer to good fossil-hunting. It would be awesome to find a small meg tooth or two, but we're not counting on it! For those who know the area, are there decent gravel beds that we can actually walk to from the Brownville campsite, or should we drive to other locations? I've done a lot of searching on this forum and it seems that just about anywhere on the river can be good, but we'll have better chances of finding meg teeth or "rare" stuff the further we go from access points (and of course the deeper we dig). Just wondering if it's worth our while to spend our limited time looking near Brownville Park (upstream or downstream)? Again, we are foot-based for this trip. So excited for this trip - hope to post pictures soon after our return. Any tips appreciated!
