Yesterday I had the pleasure of hunting with Garyc from Texas. This was the second time I've been able to hunt with him and it was a real pleasure to try and treat him to some fine Florida hunting. We haven't had as much rain as I was hoping for this week but we still managed some decent finds. My prize of the day is two part, last week I found a backpack full of giant land tortoise coming out of the side of a lake being dug and didn't think much of it tho I did grab it all to give to Calvinjenkins for his rock garden. This week walking the same spot I thought I saw a bunch of holmesina osteoderms but turns out they were turtle denticles....then the bones started coming out. I believe I got all that was there and think I have enough for most if not all of one foot. Would love if anyone could share some pics of one put together. As most Florida folks know we find tons of turtle material but is pretty rare to find anything together. Here's the foot pieced together as best I could for now. Here's the associated denticles
