Hey all! New to the forum and happy to finally have something to share. Went hunting in Montague, NJ two days ago on the first of the year and had some luck. I found directions to the site, "Mountaintop Rd. Fossil Beds" using instructions from the first entry on this list. Looks like it's all in the same town as Trilobite Mountain, which I unsuccessfully searched for early on in the day. Eventually I decided to try my hand at this second one before sunset hit. It's a shame that somebody seems to be using this property to hunt animals instead of fossils, but using some discretion you should be able to get in just fine. To my delight, my first fossil hunt yielded many interesting specimens. Shells and more than a few instances of Phalangocephalus dentatus. Wondering about how i might prep this one, which I found inside a larger hunk of rock utterly clogged with shells and trilobite fragments. Would it be useful to take a dremel to it? Also found this strange negative, wondering if anybody more experienced than myself has opinions on what could have left this impression. I hope to do many more fossil hunts in my lifetime. This was a perfect day for me, I can't wait to get back out and do it again. Cheers everybody!
