  1. First time hunting on my own

    I just wanted to share my joy at my first successful hunt! Now I have been picking up and excavating fossils my whole life but its always been quarried stone searching or someone elses established site. For those remember one of my earlier threads, this year I set out to find MY OWN SITE! Oklahoma (especially northwest/central OK) is not known well for fossils. But I set out and began researching and reading and mapping, then I began driving mile after mile of back-roads searching the outcrops and road cuts. 2 months ago I found a site that looked promising, but weather kept me away. A few days ago I went and spoke with the land owner who gave me the green light. Walking, searching, kneeling, scraping, brushing, sunburn (on an abnormally hot day!) without finding anything. Finally, I flipped a large slab and a spot immediately grabbed my attention! It wasnt really a change in color, it was the change in texture that caught my eye. Now this was a small fossil in a BIG slab. Its more than 2ft x 2ft and has to weigh close to 75 lbs. I didnt have a 2-wheel dolly with me and I wasnt about to break the slab, so I had to carry that thing back down the bluff and to my truck. But I'm glad I did! My first thought was that it was a bit of turtle plastron, but after clearing a little bit of matrix I wasnt sure any more. A paleontologist friend told me he thought it was a skull section! Only in my wildest dreams did I imagine finding vertebrate material on my first hunt! I have emailed the local college paleo dept and I'm waiting to hear back on their opinion. Beyond the skull piece, there is another long, thin fossil with the same color and texture as the skull piece but I'm not sure what it is. Its extremely fragile so I've stopped working on it and began working my way through the rest of the matrix to search for more vert material. While prepping today I came across a new first (and big thanks to @Troodon for the ID ). It a 4mm tooth from a fresh/brackish water shark called othacanthus. The biggest problem is with the rock itself. Its some kind of mudstone/conglomerate/limestone/caliche hybrid and the layer is only a few inches thick. I went back yesterday to search for more and didnt find anything visible on the rock surfaces. Unfortunately there is obviously going to be a lot of fossils that cant be seen in the field. So my only option may be to just dig out one slab at a time and work through it for fossils. I have a test chunk in a container with vinegar to see if this is going to be an acceptable way to speed thing up. I feel pretty sure the skull piece is silicified, but its another thing to check.
  2. Hey, So I was planning on going on a fossil hunt this summer in Oklahoma. I thought "Black Cat Mountain" would be a great place to start but I can't find anything on how to contact the owner "Bob Carrol". I've been on their website which has a phone number but it says its no longer in use. If anyone has contact information like a email or phone number that would be great. Anyway thank you for reading this message and have a nice day. Sincerely, Carson Betancourt
  3. Getting permission

    So I searched through the forum for this and didn't really see what I was looking for. I'm newer to the forum as well as fossil hunting/collecting as a whole. And I'm curious as to how you guys get permission to search on private property out of state. I like to travel here and there, and would like to make some trips to maybe explore and find some cool fossils in other states. But would hate to make a trip just to get denied access and end up wasting the trip. And I'm just wondering how others may go about it if they plan trips within areas of private property.
  4. Alright, so I noticed there isn't really a go-to form on the internet for asking permission from private property owners to collect on their land. So I compiled all the requests and suggested clauses from here: and here and here and several other private property permission forms into one specifically for fossil, mineral, and rock collectors. I put it all into these documents as a general cover-all forms. FULL VERSION WITH HOLD COLLECTORS HARMLESS Property Owner Permission and Liability Release Agreement.pdf @DPS Ammonite's suggested version: Property Owner Permission and Liability Release Agreement(updated).pdf @Wrangellian's suggested version PROPERTY OWNER PERMISSION AND LIABILITY RELEASE AGREEMENT one page.pdf I hope this can be of use to those needing some kind of permission form for collecting on private land. If you do not like it or don't think it covers anything feel free to edit it and post the edited versions here.
  5. Are we allowed to search for fossils (sieve and shovel) in the Deer Prairie Creek Preserve in North Port Fl. ? G
  6. Good evening all! I see lots of requests for the contact details for gaining permission to access the quarry at Mulbring, but no answers. Is this because there are no answers, or because they have been answered privately? Either way, I would really appreciate finding out how to obtain permission, as my 6 year-old grandson (and his mum - and me) would love to visit for a scratch around. Went there years ago and would love to show it to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated - cheers! :-)
  7. When getting property owner permission to hunt what level of documentation is required. Obviously, something in writing is preferred but is it required?
