  1. Any Fossil hunting spots near Adelaide? really curious
  2. I will be going to Deland Florida in a couple of weeks. Never been there before, just going for a quick 3 day trip to introduce my grandmother to her new great grandson. I'm hoping to be able to sneak out quick to look for some shark teeth while I`m down there. Looking for suggestions of where I can find shark teeth in that area... Thanks!
  3. Hunting at Eastbourne UK

    Hi All, So haven't done any exploring or hunting since a brief weekend spent in Hastings in September last year (had a few small finds which are still waiting to be sorted) This is due to me being diagnosed and dealing with a genetic disorder which has mostly put me on my backside and I've been seriously lacking in learning more and actually getting out there on hunts. To cut a long story short, I'm feeling more myself and the flames as been reignited and I'd like to try to get back out there. I'm currently eyeing up Eastbourne and Beachy Head via Cow Gap. i was just wondering if anyone could give me some pointers on the location, I've already set about keeping an eye on the tide times as from what I've read it can be a it of a git of a location for getting cut off. looking at going the second weekend in February so will also keep a check on the weather. Any help is greatly appreciated Many Thanks The Complete Noob
  4. Dad Needs Help

    Hey guys, my 6 year old son is incredibly into dinosaurs, other prehistoric animals, and, more recently, megalodon. He's said, for about the past 6 months, that he wants to be a paleontologist when he gets older. I'd like to continue to foster his love of science, biology, and paleontology by taking him on some fossil hunting trips and digs up and down the east coast. However, I have no idea where to begin. Any recommendations on some great places to go within about 5 hours of Richmond, Va? Also are there any places in the US where you can actually go and dig, find, and potentially keep legitimate dinosaur fossils or are all of those sites closed and/or you are unable to keep. Thank you
  5. Hunting near Albuquerque, NM?

    Hello all! Have to go to Albuquerque, NM next month. Will be driving back with a U-Haul. I want to fill as much of this truck with fossils as humanly possible to make this foolishly long drive worth the effort. Does anyone know any spots in the very-near vicinity of Albuquerque where I can collect? I'm not going to be picky about what I collect, I just want to make the most of the fact that I have to be there! Thanks in advance!
  6. Trilobites WV

    Thinking about going to gore WV for trilobites. It is about a 2 hour drive from where I am now, richmond, and wondering if anyone knew if it would be worth the drive or knew a closer area from trilobites. Any information is much appreciated

  8. I’m in Birmingham for a few days. Does anyone know of any cool fossil shops or cool places to go? Thank you in advance. Sincerely, J
  9. A few more megs

    A month later and some more megs after several more trips. Not as good as our first few trips out but our collection is growing. I think the best find was the big gator tooth toward top right. We’ll be headed out ASAP for,hopefully, some more success
  10. Florida megs

    Hello, new to forum. Found these over last 4 days just walking around wash out areas behind empty home lots on ponds that were close to rivers. Others have found much bigger stuff but the quality of these really surprised me.
  11. Good fossil locations NE Oklahoma

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this community and to Oklahoma. My lady and myself are trying to find good fossil sites here in the NE Oklahoma region. We are primarily looking around the Pryor area, which is East of Tulsa about 30. However, we are willing to drive to find some good spots. We hear of the Arkansas river and the potential it has, and have tried it once south of Wagoner but didn't find much. If there is anywhere in this area please let us know because after moving from MN a month ago we are dying to find some good spots from Grand River to Tulsa areas. Thanks!!!
  12. Hello everyone! I am very excited; In 2 weeks I am going fossil hunting on the Jurassic coast of Lyme Regis,Charmouth and the nearby fossil beaches. I have already went to Lyme Regis when I was a kid and all I remember was spending hours flipping stone for small ammonites. I would need some advice... Where are the best places and areas to find fossils,I am really on a vertebrate hunt more than a invertebrate one but it’s cool to come across some aswell. I am considering doing a guided tour with a professional fossil expert from Lyme Regis. Do you have any suggestions/advice/addresses? I would also be looking for the best fossil shops around Lyme Regis and Charmout, I know they are a few, I just don’t know which are the best and worth it. Any English fossil experts? Really Appreciate all the help and suggestions Kind regards.
  13. Hello, all! Making a trip toward the end of this month down to Philadelphia from Buffalo. Planning on taking NY 390 -> NY 86 -> PA 81 -> PA 476. Looking for any road cuts or spots on that route, or nearby that route to hit on the trip. Any ideas? (I'm primarily interested in trilobite locations, but will entertain anything likely to be productive. It's a short trip, so quantity over quality is the objective here.) Thank you in advance! -Jay
  14. Gainesville hunting advice

    Hey guys! I plan on being in Gainesville this Tuesday (4/3) for some solo hunting. Any advice or locations you'd recommend? -Terry
  15. Hey guys! Any streams, creeks, or other locations you know of where I could hunt fossils in Jacksonville other than the beaches? Also is it possible to find Megalodon here?
  16. Probably a stupid question, but, what are some good tips and and rules of thumb in hunting fossils in suburban areas, such as rivers, forests, ect..
  17. Hey there! We live in North FL and travel to Venice several times a year to visit family. I spend a good majority of my time in Venice hanging out at the beach with my kids, hunting for teeth and other fossils. We have such a good time and I would love to find some spots where I can take them to hunt for fossils closer to home. Anybody here have any suggestions? Preferably near the big bend area. Thanks!
  18. North Florida Fossil Hunting Club

    I am looking to start a North Florida Fossil Club, so we can share what we find in the area, meet to fossil hunt, and share experiences and knowledge.
  19. North East Oklahoma

    Looking for like minded individuals who would like to meet up to hunt together and or take short trips to find new areas. I live in the NE Oklahoma area around Grand Lake. SW Missouri and NW Arkansas are both close so any one in those areas I am open. Reply to this thread or PM me and let's meet up. I know of a few areas around here but looking for others.
  20. one of which is Grand Staircase-Escalante. my question is whether or not this will affect fossil hunting regulations that prevent the average citizen from fossil hunting on these lands? https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-shrinks-2-national-monuments-in-utah
  21. Southern California???

    I'm down in the Palmdale/Lancaster Area on business for the next month and a half or so. Really want to get out and do a hunt or take a peek at some collections. I'm planning on hitting up the Ernst Quarry this month, but I'd love to get out in the field with a few collectors. I'm also a sucker for collections and love taking a look at what people have found. I understand not many people want to be giving out locations to people so i'm not asking for anything like that, heck I'll wear a blindfold to a location, I just enjoy getting out there and hunting with new friends. If anyone wants a tag along please let me know!
  22. Earlier this summer, my father and I went on a road trip around the vicinity of Seneca Rocks in West Virginia; on the way back from a long day of hiking we stopped on a small outlet from the road (Corridor H, near Elkins) to stretch our legs. It was right beside of an extremely large and layered road-cut, we were in awe to find the best shell fossils that we've found in WV so far just laying everywhere. I climbed up the edge of the hillside parallel to the road to the second layer of exposed rock which was 99% shale (absolutely insane amounts of fossils, crinoids, brachiopods, etc. all nearly perfectly preserved) we left with only a few fossils. Ever since then we have talked of returning to have a more extensive dig at the site, but we fear that there are laws which prohibit us from being there and collecting. The road that the site is on is 'Corridor H' which connects Route 48 and Route 250. It is a double lane on both sides. I understand that interstates and highways are no-go's, but nowhere that I've read does Corridor H or a 'Corridor' in general classify as one of these (also not to mention that it is unfinished in most parts of Virginia, this doesn't apply to the West Virginia portion, however...). I would like to know if anyone had any thoughts on digging here, i've seen a few treads mentioning collecting on Corridor H but nothing to the extent of knowing if it is legal or not. (if anyone has any questions for me either pm or reply) Thanks all. The small gold star represents the locality. A satellite image of the area. The distance from the road to the site is a little over ~100ft (30m) Just below the star you can see a tiny dirt road where we parked.
  23. Known or unknown

    Most of my fossil hunting to this point has been looking for shark teeth, mainly along the Calvert Cliffs or the Potomac. As I am looking, often I see a tooth brought in by a wave, and what looks like could be another tooth being taken back out by the wave. With the next wave, the tooth in front of you could be gone. Now obviously, if you have something special in front of you, that is what you are going for, but what if you aren't sure what is being washed back out? Do you go for the known, or try and grab the unknown before it gets washed away? Just things I think about while hunting. Was wondering if anyone else did as well. I typically go for the known, but usually second guess myself. Lol
  24. Hammers?

    How important is it to have a geo hammer when fossil hunting? What exactly do you do with it, other than trying to crack open a concretion?
  25. Best place for variety in America

    So I'm curious for the best place in America for a variety of fossil hunting. If you guys could move anywhere in the US, where would it be? There has to be a perfect spot with different epochs in all directions right? Maybe not, but what do you guys think?
