  1. C and D Canal Help

    Hello all, Recently my girlfriend and I were planning on taking a trip to the C and D Canal for a day as it isn't very far from where we live. However, I have a few questions. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Questions: 1. Where could we park when we head over to the dredge piles, and how far of a walk would it be from the parking spot to the piles? 2. Are the dredge piles productive currently? I am aware that if they havent been dredged recently they won't be very productive. 3. How deep would we need to dig to actually reach the fossils? 4. What equipment would be reccommended/required for finding fossils on the trip. ... I believe that is it. Thank you for any input! -Snag
  2. Any suggestions on where to go fossil hunting over by seaside heights, nj area?
  3. Big teeth at Brownies Beach?

    Hello everybody. My girlfriend and I are making one last trip to Brownies tomorrow before it costs 40 dollars for us to get in (barf). But I've had some questions about it. We have gone one time before, and were unable to get past the one little point/corner, but still found over 200 teeth, which was awesome, however most of the teeth were small, tiny even. Are there any tips or places to find some bigger teeth in the area? I've heard the farther south you go, AKA past the point we couldn't get past last time, the teeth tend to get bigger. And is sifting a viable option to finding bigger teeth? I'm not looking for Meg sized teeth, more or less looking for decent sized teeth, and maybe a bigger Hemi or two any tips for the recovery of larger teeth at Brownie's Beach/Bayfront Park is appreciated! Thanks so much! -Snag
  4. Trilobites in Norway

    This year's second hunt was successful, considering the snow. There is still a bit of snow covering some places. I was still lucky enough to find some ok fossils. The area where I found these trilobites is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad (i`ve showed pictured from the area before). The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The trilobites fossils I found are about 420 million years old I believe. I found around 10 trilobites or parts of them.
  5. Fossil hunting in Norway

    this year's first hunt was not entirely successful. There is still a meter of snow in some places. Found some small fossils that I don't think are possible to identify. I may show pictures of them, but saw several large orthoceras and some trilobites in a mountain wall where the snow was melted (exposed to the sun). May have to wait a few weeks, after Easter before i can go fossilhunting. The area where i took these pictures is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad. The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silur, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The Orthoceras fossils i took pictures of is about 420 million years old.
  6. As the snow will start to clear soon, I’ve been looking into new places to hunt for fossils in New York! If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them and visit them! Thank you in advance!
  7. Hey guys, I’m heading to Raalte in The Netherlands for a family trip and wanted to know what the fossil/artifact scene is there and if there are any spots you all would recommend! I’d love to bring home some European fossils
  8. On a class field trip for 3rd Block (3rd Period), we went to Freedom Park to measure slope, air temperature, soil temperature, etc. of the Northern & Southern sides/slopes of hills. In between the hill slants, there was a creek bed. Inside the creek bed, there are fossils that I just had to pick up some. I got this oyster and this other shell. It seems everywhere I go (someplace new in nature, or a field trip) I always find either a fossil shell or seashell or land shell. It's really weird, but cool, because mollusks are my favorite type of fossil. And fossils are my favorite study. I am somewhat surprised, still, when I find the shells and fossils, even though it happens every time. The white one I've never seen before, but it's hard to identify because it's broken. I wish I knew what it was...I've tried to figure it out. Actually....I have a guess. It's some kind of clam. It's a tongue shell! It's gotta be! These fossils I found in that creek. I thought it was an interesting story, so I wanted to share it.
  9. I was wondering if anyone here has made any modifications to their kayaks with the purpose of fossil-hunting in mind? Having just received a new tandem kayak, I find it lacking in attachment points for gear. It has a good amount of cargo space, but most of it is inside the hull and only accessible through two, 6-inch ports. So, you can only put small-diameter objects into the hull storage. During my previous hunting trips on a single kayak, I always found myself a little short here or there on storage space for my gear : backpack, shovel, screen, probe/walking stick, machete, loot bag, drinks/consumables, and the usual keys/wallet/phone/etc. The result is always a kayak that resembles something out of the Beverly Hillbillies : stuff awkwardly strapped to every surface and poking out in all directions. So, after looking all over the web at various websites about kayaks, building kayaks, fishing with kayaks, etc, I have yet to see anything closely related to fossil hunting. Some of the modifications made for fishing could prove useful, but I am curious if my fellow fossil-hunters here have done anything to their own boats with an eye towards improving the fossil hunting experience.
  10. Hello fossil folks, Me and my fiancée will be in Austin, Texas from January 8-13th next year visiting one of her best friends. During these few days I will have time for myself to go fossil crazy haha. I will probably have to ship whatever I find home and I’m ok with that as it opens up possibilities for me to collect more material I've done some research and there seems to be almost too much information for me to make a real educated decision. I read about a lake you can collect at but you need a permit...the finds are great. I’d get a permit if I had to no grip there. I have 1 day do hunting and I’ll want to try to maximize my efforts. Several years ago my paleontology professor showed me some jaw dropping ammonites from Texas he collected at rivers but I have no clue where. I’d love to get into some ammonites and maybe some Cretaceous material with possible mosasaur teeth/verts? I reached out to @KimTexan because I saw her comment on a post of mine in the past and she was very kind! Kim is from much further north but said we have some great forum members and admins from Texas! So I guess I’m just trying to make sure I pick the right spot or spots for my 1 day of fossiling lol. Maybe I can meet up with some members who want to teach a Paleozoic New Yorker what the Mesozoic is all about . I would bring a nice fossil from New York as a gift! Thank you in advance for any advice I may get! Al
  11. Indiana Road Cuts

    Hello FF, I'm planning on making a trip down to Indianapolis in a few weeks and was hoping to get acquainted with some of the road cuts nearby (maybe near St. Leon IN or Crawfordsville IN, I'll probably go all over the place). I know that one should stick to the State Highway road cuts if they don't want to get in trouble; but I'm a bit confused on when it is OK and when it isn't... Do I just pull over on the side of the road and start picking up rocks? Are there any other localities by St. Leon or even into Ohio where it would be okay to do this? I don't wanna give fossil hunters a bad name! Best, Brian
  12. Russian fossil hunting

    Hello! I want to tell you about my fossil hunting trip in Checkarda canyon. It's located near Perm city, in Ural region. First I flew to Perm from Moscow. After I met my friends and we went to first point of our trip. We decided to reach paleo-site on the boat The russian village avoids after some times We slowly floated downstream and moored near the field. We saw crushed pine, it stayed as label) This place is famous for its plant's fossils (ferns, ginkgo, etc), but I realy wanted insect's fossils.

  16. Little Manatee River?

    Has anyone ever fossil hunted on the Little Manatee River? If so, is it worthwhile? I spoke to a ranger who works at LMR SP, and he had no idea. It was like I was speaking in Greek or something. I did some looking around on the web, but can't find much about LMR.
  17. Josh and I are heading out tomorrow morning to revisit our primary honey hole in the Peace River. This time we are going to do a systematic grid search of the area. No stone will be left unturned. Wish us luck.
