  1. Summerville Tips

    Hey guys, I'm going to be in Charleston here in a bit, just visiting family over the summer, and I would appreciate some help in finding good places in Summerville to hunt the creeks. I've had some success, but I'd like to narrow down my options some before I get out there. I am not asking anyone to surrender their honey holes, but I would like to know which areas of Summerville are topographically favorable for finding fossils. I've noticed that some creeks will be chock full of material, but a near-identical creek half a mile from it will be barren of fossils. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!
  3. Creeks around Gainesville

    Hey guys. I’ve done a good bit of hunting in Gainesville and wanted to know if there were any creeks around/outside Gainesville you would suggest for fossil hunting. Seems like all the creeks in Gville are over hunted.
  4. Gators?

    I'm about to go to Venice FL, hopefully will find some small shrimpers and maybe a few medium sized teeth I know there aren't any gators in the ocean, but if I were to plan a trip to the Peace River or other similar locations --- would gators be a huge problem? I'm not from Florida, and I would really appreciate any advice on how to ward them away or avoid them in general (like what time they are most active, where to look before diving, etc). Thanks!
  5. Looking for tips regarding Joshua Creek and Charlie Creek! Both located in SW FL near Arcadia. I've heard good things about both. Just curious about where to park, any success stories, "don't do this," etc. Thanks!!
  6. Hey everyone. I’m new to this forum and pretty new to hunting anywhere other than the beach, but I’ve been venturing out to Summerville and a few creeks in the West Ashley area. I’ve found pretty much nothing except for a broken meg tooth in a well known creek in Summerville. I’m not asking for anyone’s specific hunting spot, but does anyone have some insight on other areas besides the Sawmill Branch creek?
  7. Unsure fossil tooth

    So I found this among many others in a ditch in the Miocene area of South Carolina. Of the many things I found were Angustiden, Great White shark teeth, as well as a few verts.. This one has got me stumped, probably due to the fact that it is a smaller one but if had to guess I am thinking Angustiden. Any thoughts?
  8. Hello from Virginia as well.

    Found this neat looking rock this weekend. It has a ring around its outer area that looks like bark and is hard as rock. Could this be Petrified Wood?
  9. Northwest Georgia Fossils

    Are there any locations for fossils in Northwest Georgia?
  10. Horn Coral?

    Found this while searching a creek for points near Huntsville AR. If this is horn coral I'm curious what other fossils I might expect to find in the area. Thanks! Found this guy in the same creek
  11. South Georgia HELP

    I just moved to South Georgia, Kairo-Ochlocknee-Thomasville area. I am very new to fossil hunting and I don't have any clue where to go or who to ask, where-if there is-can I go to explore? Any help is GREATLY appreciated
  12. Hi everyone! I'm fairly new to Beaufort, SC. Recently moved up from FL where I hunted Peace River a lot. I'm hoping to connect with other fossil hunters in the area and maybe gain some local knowledge. I've watched a ton of videos of nice megalodon teeth being found in Summerville/Charleston area land sites, creeks, ditches. What I'm looking for is the possibility of similar sites here in Beaufort County but I don't know enough about local formations to draw any conclusions. I'm not a diver yet so my main focus is on land at the moment. I've hunted the sands at Port Royal with minimal success (the occasional small meg) but I'm really looking for the bigger stuff. I also have a kayak if that helps! Any info is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  13. searching creeks, rivers, etc

    Can fossils be found in any body of water such as creeks, streams, rivers? I am around quite a few streams, creeks, etc. Most of these have an abundance of small and larger rocks in the water. Most of these creeks are in heavily wooded and very rocky areas. Warren County NJ.
  14. I'm new to fossil hunting and I live about an hour drive to Gainesville Fl. I want to hunt there because I'm very close and I don't know much about the area and would like to know where and when to hunt for fossils. Anything would help. Thank you
  15. Summerville Creek Hunts

    Otter creek field report 02-13-16: The day turned out to be a wonderful day to hunt South Carolina fossils. I met with one other at 1pm. We gathered our gear and headed out to find the elusive shark teeth and various other fossilized materials. We arrived at a deep cut creek site and began to survey. The first item that was very noticeable was very little evidence of other fossil hunters. What we found was blue marl, tan and brown marl, blue limestone, phosphate, and large stones (gravel of sort). Sanding-in was obvious in 90% of the creek. There were no teeth protruding from the dark gray sandstone walls. The large stones (golf ball to base ball size) had to be removed prior to gathering material and moving it through the sifter. The teeth that began to appear were small but grading upwards in size. I collected about 40 in all. The sizes ranged between .5” to 1.0”. The findings included Tigers, Hemi’s, Mako, Bull, Sand, Lemon, and Black Tip Sharks. Photos to follow.
  16. Good Creeks In Desoto County?

    Hasn't been too much rain in the the last few weeks so I thought I'd go down to Arcadia where I hear is rich in fossils. Does anyone know of any shallow creeks down there that are good to search in? Still waiting for the peace river to go down some more.
  17. Inverness/cypress Creek/with

    We are going up to Inverness by Cypress Creek to camp this wkend. I know the water is high, but any insight into fossiling up that way, specifically teeth? Gainesville isn't that far, so I know we can always venture to some of our Gainesville spots. Any insight appreciated! We do have fossil permits.
  18. Fossils Near Portland?

    I just moved to the Portland area and I'm trying to find somewhere to look for fossils nearby. When I say nearby I wouldn't mind driving an hour or so. I just want to find something close enough that I can drive there and spend most of the day looking and then head home. I'm not looking for any specific kind of fossils. And I don't mind looking on the Oregon side or the Washington side. I went to a creek a few days because I found a list that said I might be able to find petrified wood. When I arrived it didn't look like a place where I would find anything and sure enough I left empty handed. So if anyone knows of any places that would be wonderful. I haven't made to any of the beaches out here either so if anyone knows the best beach to find fossils that would be nice also. Thanks.
