  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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!
  5. 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?
  6. Will be traveling from FL to SF Bay Area in April. Have the Weekend of April 22/23 free. Would like to hunt Shark Tooth Hill (or area) with fellow TFF'ers if possible. Most interested in shark teeth that aren't BLACK since I normally hunt the Peace River & other areas of SW FL. Will need some help as I don't know anything about hunting on dry land without water. Thanks in advance! Calvin
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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?

  15. Fossil Hunting Suggestions

    My father and I are planning on taking a trip fossil hunting this summer, we can't seem to find anywhere that really seems worth driving to. (Everything around us is basically Devonian.) We were looking for something different: Mosasaur, Arthropods (Cambrian preferred), Holocene, etc. My dad loves actual bones and I love arthropods from Cambrian. We came to a consensus and are looking for anything marine in the Mid-West. But we will take any suggestions into consideration! (We are new-ish to fossil hunting and are willing to go anywhere and do anything.
  16. Wanted to share a map of potential spots to hunt for fossils in the US. Not complete by any means but it's a start! Just planning our fossil hunting road trip this summer and though others might be doing the same Happy hunting!

  20. 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.
