  1. I am on way to Missouri in the morning. Going to be staying at lake near Branson so just wondering if there are any sites that I could check out
  2. Don’t worry, fossil collecting sites are all around, and may be easier to find than you might think! Here in my area of Kentucky, we have landscape rock that is sold as “local river rock” at about every garden/landscape center. This “local river rock” contains a lot of fossils. From brachiopods, to horns (corals), and bryozoans, etc. It is also very inexpensive. Many people in my area also use crushed limestone as a covering for driveways and parking areas. I have found many a trilobite in someone’s driveway. Finding fossils this way isn’t the most glamorous or scientific, but for someone new, or someone who is thinking about starting to collect, it may just be the spark that gets them into it. Finding a few fossils this way is what brought me back to the hobby. It’s a lot easier to ask a friend/family member to give up a rock out of their driveway or landscaping than to ask a complete stranger to go dig around on their property. What are some of the other newbie friendly “sites” are that you have come across? P.S. I’ll try and post a few pictures of some of my finds when I get a chance later tonight.
  3. I'm a bit new to fossil hunting but was looking to try some this summer. I've been looking for sites from multiple sources, and was wondering if anyone had any good locations to recommend. I live in the Tampa area, and am looking for fossil locations around the region between Tampa and the Peace River. My largest concern is flooding of the river and that it will be too deep. Are there still other options? Does anyone have recommendations? Thanks
  4. Syracuse New York area?

    Have to come to Syracuse for family emergency. Hoping to get a little free time once things settle and would love to see what fossils might be found in area. Thanks for help Steve Friend (visiting from Alaska)
  5. could everyone name there favourite or the best dinosaur fossils hunting sites and quarries in the UK? Also, what place would smokejacks quarry, surrey and compton bay, the isle of white be ranked?
  6. Reno, NV Fossil Sites

    I will be spending some random time in Reno (Sparks actually), NV over the next couple months. Does anyone have a few sites they would be willing to give me the details on for some collecting when work allows? Send me a PM if you don’t want the general public to know. Any possibilities would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Any Maryland Eocene sites?

    Hello everyone, I don’t know if I put this in the right place, mods and admins feel free to move it. I am getting jealous of the transitional Otodus and auriculatus I am seeing from the Potomac. These, I assume, are from the Nanjemoy Formation. While every now and then some of this will wash to the Paleocene aged Aquia Formation of Purse state park, it is not reliable. I’d like to hunt Maryland’s Eocene so I can cross that off my list. Now there is also the secretive Old Church formation which exists, but I have not heard much about it. Are there any sites that are accessible by land? Regrettably, the family car has no attachment area for a boat carrier, and a kayak won’t fit in it (and I’ve never kayaked the Potomac so I don’t know how fast the currents are). If there is a person to contact to ask for permission, I’d be fine with that. Any leads would be appropriate, typically I’d take matters into my own hands but info is scarce and the geologic map shows the overlying Pleistocene and Holocene deposits rather than the Eocene. Don’t hesitate to PM me. Thanks!
  8. Tucson trip

    Hi all, I am going to be in the Tucson area for 10 days soon. Is there anything to collect in that area (say 120 mi radius). I have never been to AZ. If you have some collecting information to share please PM me. Thanks a lot. Herb
  9. Sites near Charlotte?

    I'm going to be in the area and I was wondering if anyone knew of some sites down there. Roadcuts are preferable, but I'm open to collecting along creeks, just not private property and railroad cuts.
  10. Western Maryland Wandering

    I'm looking to go on a weekend jaunt out to Deep Creek Lake area, traveling across MD'd northern border to get there from Delaware. Anybody have any suggestions for a stop on the way, or close to Deep Creek?
  11. I'm going on a fossil hunting trip to Mitchell, Oregon in about a week, I was wondering if anyone has recommendations on places to look. This will be my 5th or 6th trip to Mitchell, so I know the area fairly well.
  12. Hi Just wondering but does anyone know any fossil sites in Southern California (mainly in the Los Angeles area), I have been searching for fossil sites for a while now but I wanted to know if anyone on here has had success on any of the fossil sites.
  13. Denton, TX Fossil Sites

    Does anyone know any good fossil sites in Denton or Wise county? I am particularly looking for shark teeth but anything will do. I have fossil hunting fever and would love some interesting new places to try.
  14. Permian fossils from Krasnoufimsk, Russia

    I'll tell you about fossil sites from Russia. My today's story about Krasnoufimsk. Krasnoufimsk is a small town in Ural area. This town is located near Perm sity and sedimentary rocks around it belong to the lower permian age. Sea creatures are found in Krasnoufimsk. You can see this town location on the map. The view of this site on this photo. It's something similar on a quary and a rubbish dump. The extraction of stone is not carried out here and you must pull out stones and break them. The most popular fossil from here is Helicaprion spiral teeth. But it's rare prize... I walked in this site and I found some fossils. Some plants and plant seed on the stone. Iron substitution Permian trilobite. Not whole. Probably a shell after molting Ammonite uraloceras (?)
  15. I will be going to Utah in a few weeks. I will be spending about a month there and will have time to get out and fossil hunt. Are there areas of the Green River Formation that are open to fossil collection?
  16. Okay guys, I’ve managed to get some cheap air tickets (£20) to Milan from the UK. Airbnb was good to me too at £25 a night. Anyone know of any sites, museums or shops in the area?
  17. Protected sites in Manitoba?

    Hi all, A few times now I have found fossils in Manitoba (posted a few times here for ID as well). My question here is the following: Is it legal to bring home fossils that can be found on beaches? Mine were found in an area used to access a winter road. That road is no longer in use but quite a large selection of them can be found as loose rocks on that same beach. If one doesn't take them home, they will be destroyed over time. I'm not trying to take the discussion to whether it is better for the fossils or not, simply to see if it is legal to take them. A second question is : Is there a list of protected sites in Manitoba, and if so, where can I find it? Thanks in advance.
  18. Washington->Louisiana

  19. Florida panhandle

    I am going to be at Eglin AFB near Pensacola, FL soon. Any info on collecting in that area would be appreciated. If you have any tips please PM me. Thanks.
  20. Heading to WV This Weekend

    We are heading down to Athens, WV this weekend to visit some friends who just moved there from the midwest. None of the four of us knows the area. Anyone have any suggestions for a reasonably short road trip to do some hunting in their vicinity?
  21. do you guys know any fossil sites in Michigan, I live in the lansing area and places like rockport state park are a bit far. Do you guys know any places closer that I could go to look for a high quantity of fossils and I wouldn't have to drive very far?
  22. German fossil sites

    Hi guys ,I'm planning a 3 days of break from work to Germany to visit maybe a fossil quarry , anyone can give me some advice? I will fly to Hamburg so I need something close to it.
  23. So I have a few days off duty and I'm planning on making a long weekend out of it. I'm starting tomorrow in Aurora, NC at the museum's spoil piles. This will be a first, so any suggestions are appreciated. Saturday I will be going to the Charelston, SC area to try my luck again. I was looking for advice in this area. I have done a ton of research with little success. I don't expect someone to give exact locations to their honey holes but advise would be great! Also anyone interested in joining would be welcome. Finally, a few days of free diving the bone yard in Venice, FL.... That's home! Any advice, suggestions, or anyone interested in joining please chime in. I'll post pics as it happens. Thanks in advance, Justin
