  1. Ive been slowly getting ready for my next fossil hunting trip. Takes me about 3 weeks to get ready. Going to meet my texas buddy Kris and his sons and freinds and also my 3 sons and some other buddy's and dig for fish. Took me some phone calls but found a quarry that wants all the bottom cap of the 18 inch layer removed but even may have a chance at some 18 inch. Most folks do not like the bottom cap stuff cause it takes a heck of alot of time for prep, and some serious equipment too, But the rock is hard and the preservtion of the fish bones can be quite nice to say the least! I got tired of the split fish stuff many years ago even though some of that can be quite nice. I wont be doing much digging but I will be the camp cook. Bringing all the kitchen stuff and all the food for me and 3 sons and one of there buddy's. I make a mean breakfast too! It will be a lot of cooking for 5 of us but it will give me something to do. and of course I will be watching everyone finding lots of fossil fish and when I can and when the time is right I will be causing trouble. "Get out of my spot, thats my fish". "Move over, your in my spot". "Thanks for lifting all that heavy rock, now get out of the way so I can get this fish you just exsposed". "youve got a nice stack of fish there, im going to take my half now. Thanks". "Thanks for saving my spot, now get out, and thanks for revieling a nice fish for me". These guys are gunna be hatin me by the end of the trip. Ha!!
  2. Hi everyone! New member here. I am headed to Gasparilla Island, Florida soon. Also known as bocca grande. I was wondering if other members have been there and if you could share what you found and maybe what I could or should be hunting for. Thanks ahead for all your tips!
  3. Dad Needs Help

    Hey guys, my 6 year old son is incredibly into dinosaurs, other prehistoric animals, and, more recently, megalodon. He's said, for about the past 6 months, that he wants to be a paleontologist when he gets older. I'd like to continue to foster his love of science, biology, and paleontology by taking him on some fossil hunting trips and digs up and down the east coast. However, I have no idea where to begin. Any recommendations on some great places to go within about 5 hours of Richmond, Va? Also are there any places in the US where you can actually go and dig, find, and potentially keep legitimate dinosaur fossils or are all of those sites closed and/or you are unable to keep. Thank you
  4. Hi! My name is Alexandra. I live in St. Petersburg, looking for and preparing trilobites. As you know, we have near St. Petersburg very good places to search for fossils known all over the world. If someone from trilobite lovers wants to come and find good specimens here or if you are traveling through Russia and you will be interested to come in search of trilobites, then I can easily show you the best places to search near St. Petersburg without problems. You do not need anything for this-it will be absolutely free for you. I can explain it by the fact that I am the same person as you, and I have the same disease that can be called "paleontology" Is this interesting for you, write to this topic or search for me in Skype: Alexandra Kalinina (with bird on skateboard on avatar :-) ) and ask any questions. P.S. sorry for my English
  5. Detroit Lakes??

    Hello, I will be going to visit kin up in Ottertail county over the 4th of July week. We are coming up from Florida Despite visiting Minnesota repeatedly throughout my life, I know almost nothing about fossil hunting possibilities...my focus has always been on fishing and such, but my 5 year old is high on fossiling (and has quite a collection from Florida already) We are flying in from Florida to the Cities and driving out. IF any of y'all have insight on: 1) locations around ottertail county/detroit lakes 2) locations between Fergus Falls and the Cities 3) locations in EASTERN North Dakota 4) guides or trips we could participate in 5) fossil/dinosaur related sites to see in that part of the country 6) tips on applicable laws we should be aware of ...I would be GREATLY obliged I reckon anything between MSP and Jamestown ND would be reasonable, bu the closer to Fergus, Alexandria, DL, etc., the better! Thanks y'all very much in advance
  6. Hey guys! Equipment check!

    Hey guys ! What are some of The tools and equipment you guys take when you go fossil hunting for the weekend? Favorite containers to store you're finds in the field ? Rucksacks ? Shovels ? Picks?
  7. Any trilobite sites in Alsace?

    Hello, I am asking the community members who live in or near Alsace, if they know any good trilobite fossil sites because me and a few friends have been planing to do a fossil trip and we want to know whether there are some fossil grounds worth visiting near or in Alsace. best regards, indominus rex
  8. Hi Guys

    I'm not sure how long it's been but I've been gone awhile going through some life changes. Now o have time to be active again on the forum. I've missed my old friends here and am looking forward to making some new ones. I'm no real expert in anything but I've collected a lot of places and look forward to discovering more. Looking forward to catching up with you all.
  9. Deep Springs 6/11/17

    After a long day of barbequeing, having drinks, and spending time with friends, I somehow managed to get up at 5am. I headed out to Deep Springs with a beautiful sunrise. Unfortunately today was uneventful. I wasn't finding much. It got hot pretty quick, once the sun got up. But I really enjoy the quiet, peaceful mornings. So I still had a good time. I found a turtle while I was there. It really seemed so out of place in the middle of this quarry. But Devin found some sun-bleached turtle remains while there on a previous trip. Whatever the reason, they frequent this place. I didn't have a lot of time so around 8:15 I decided to leave and head over to Briggs Road quarry to see if I could find some trilo material from the debris pile. I did find some parts and pieces, but didn't bring much home. I am getting picky. I almost forgot, the main reason I am even posting about this uneventful trip. At Deep Springs I found some tools. I had a hard time deciding if I should leave them there or not. If I left them there they could of very easily been buried in debris. They were pretty camouflaged by being covered in mud and some what rusty. And there is nothing saying that somebody else wouldnt of taken them other than the true owner. So in an effort to get them back to whoever they belong to I have them. So if there is anybody who recently left tools at Deep Springs, if you can descibe the tools I will gladly make arrangements to get them back to you. Here are a couple pics. 1&2 The Turtle, 3 the site I am working.
  10. guided trips

    IMHO, if you set up a date and time to meet someone who is taking their time and effort to take you around to collecting sites in their area, and you can not make the appointed meeting at least have the courtesy to call them and let them know you won't be there.
  11. Best way to find members in my area

  12. Trying to arrange a trip to Gold Point, Ammonite Canyon, Fossil Hill and Canyon this April. Going after trilobites, ammonites, insects, plant material. Anyone interested in going as a small group 4 cars or less?
  13. 2016 a Recap

    Hello TFF! I just wanted to take a minute to share with everyone some of our finds from 2016. I do most of my digging up in Kemmerer, WY trying my hand at fossil fishes. 2016 was a pretty exceptional year in that along with our standard hundreds of 18" fish and thousands of split fish we pulled 2 VERY LARGE specimens. quite rare really. it averages out to about 1 every 2 or 3 years normally, so 2 in one summer is AMAZING! These panels have all been finished and are ready to hit the market along with the large gar and the croc! Fingers crossed that they sell so we can open up next year! I hope you all enjoy coming along. ALL of these panels feature 100% natural fish with 0% restoration. NO PAINT, a few have been inlaid though. In the last picture, the branch does have around 2% restoration because it was in multiple pieces needing to be glued.
  14. Houston TX area

    Hi all, I am going to be in Houston 11/4 -11/6. Other than Whisky Bridge, is there anything in the Houston area worth collecting? Also if someone wants to meet PM me, always like to meet other FF members. All info will be kept confidential, as always. Thanks, Herb
  15. Hill Country Fossil Club - Texas

    Hello there, my name is Cameron and i'm starting this topic to have an open page for the flow of ideas and information about the possible formation of a Hill Country Fossil Club for San Antonio, Austin, and the surrounding areas . This idea has been proposed before on the forums, but it didn't work out, so i'm doing my best to pull everyone together to form some sort of club. It could be anything from an organized monthly meetup for group fossil hunting trips, guest speakers, etc. to a simple email list for members to invite a couple tag-alongs on their upcoming trips. However it takes shape, it'd be beneficial to alot of the central Texas members of the forum to form a local fossil community. So far, my idea is to maintain the facebook page created last time (for those who prefer facebook) and make an email and phone number list so each club member gets a reminder when someone plans an open-invite fossil hunting trip, or if there is a meeting coming up, or anything else of that nature. If interested in making a list, pm me your email and texting phone number with whatever name you like to be called. If alot of people prefer to meet first, thats fine too. Maybe we can make a field trip out of it. Just reply with your thoughts and let's all start exchanging ideas. If it doesnt work long-term again at least we have a few new locals to hunt with, lol.
  16. Peace River

    Pam and I went on a Peace River kayak trip Friday 5/31 guided by Mark Renz. We had a great time on the river and talking with Mark, who is very knowledgeable about the river, fossils and the history of the area. The weather turned out great even though we had to postpone the trip a couple days due to thunder storms in the area. We found some great fossils and lots of teeth (another post, another day, I'm a couple years behind in shooting pictures). No alligators, I'm sorry to say, I was hopping for some close up pix but not too close up. All in all it was well worth the trip and a lot of fun and we would recommend a trip with Mark anytime. Thanks, Mark.

  18. Hello All! I need your help, but first I'd best introduce myself. I'm the new Program Coordinator -- and on-site paleontologist -- for the Waco Mammoth Site. For those of unfamiliar with the site, it's a late-Pleistocene recurrent mass-mortality site for Columbian mammoths and a scattering of other Rancholabrean megafauna. From 68 KA onwards at least two groups of mammoths and their camp-followers got caught in flash floods along a tributary of the Bosque River in what would become the western outskirts of Waco, TX. The site is currently a city-run in-situ display of six of those mammoths, in an enclosed climate-controlled shelter. The facility is loaded with educational potential, but at the moment all we've got is a (very nice) guided tour. I want to do better. One of the educational activities I'm looking to add in the near future is a screen-washing. I'll have the students screen and pick fossiliferous sediment and ID what they've found. They'll be able to keep most of what they find (with exceptions for scientifically important specimens) and all of their findings will get entered into a database that will be run through the PAST statistical package. I'll write up the results and try to get them published -- with the kids listed individually in the acknowledgements. The kids get real fossils, they get to participate in a real scientific study, and I get to do some research. I think it's an idea with potential, with one wrinkle; I'm having a hard time getting the sediment! I've tried buying phosphate gravel from the mines in Florida and North Carolina, but my efforts seem to be stalling. I know that some such gravel is available for resale, but it's a tad pricey. There's no way I could afford to buy the 100 or so kilos I want on the shoe-string budget I've got for the time being. If anyone has a line on a better source of bulk sediment, I'd love to hear from you! In fact, if you've got any ideas for spreading interest in paleontology, we need to talk. Paleontology is the gateway drug of science -- if we want to teach critical thinking in this country, fossils are the best place to start. Please help me work to make that happen. Regards, Don Esker
