I live in Ottawa and my family's interested in fossil hunting. We had a nice experience out in Iowa! And here, close by, is, or was, just a great place to hunt. But what's the CURRENT, 2017, situation? I already had in my library some old Illinois Geological Survey titles: the one on Starved Rock, and one on the Upper Illinois River valley. I've checked out a bunch from the library, etc., just to figure good places to go. . . I know I want to check the Rt. 178 bridge over the Little Vermillion, for instance. I've been up and down and through a lot of these kinds of places already. Years back we went to the IDNR's state park around Braidwood? Wilmington? and found plenty of nothing. What makes sense? Is the area played out? As a 10 year-old I found a fern fossil on the mine dump in Wenona; great impression and I've always had it as a little treasure. It would be great to find more from this spot. . . fingers crossed, I'd love to find a Tully's Monster!
Looking to put the boat in the water and hitting a few spots throughout the week. I am looking to get out at low tide. I have a spot or two in mind. Looking for a few more spots to go besides the more popular areas. If you know of some good places and would like a free boat ride and some fossil hunting after these heavy rains send me a PM.
2thdoc posted a topic in Fossil IDNew here to the forum and to fossil hunting. Found a few teeth over the past few weeks was hoping to get some help with identification and where to find more in the low country. Living in mount pleasant with access to a 23 foot bay boat as well as a few paddle boards. Would love to meet some great people with the same interests as myself and my wife. We would love to host some new friends on our boat for some hunting. If you are in the area and wouldn't mind the company of some newbs that are eager to learn and hunt send me a PM. We are looking forward to becoming knowledgeable on the area and meeting others that share our interests. I have attached a picture of a few of the things we found any help on ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
