rapp creek hunting


Recommended Posts

Combined a couple of trips to the creek in the woods.  Looks to be busy with the kids out of school (VA public schools closed March 23; we're in Lockdown until June 10.   Local kids must be getting bored with their games and cell phones.)  I haven't seen any yet but they have been busy digging, often in my favorite areas.  Probably should just dig in some random spots, just to see if they tackle those as well.  Has been cold lately, lot of east wind days (bad for beach hunting, higher water).  So made two trips. Lots of small bones/teeth(?), skate teeth and broken teeth in mostly gravel areas , just showing the better (nothing great, although several sand shark tiger teeth had sharp cusps, and more had buttons where the cusps had worn away. )  Highlights for me were the sand tiger symphysial near the orange vert, the two small angel shark teeth, and the inch-plus root-less mako (hadn't seen any in a while). Also found a partial ecphora and a small broken cow shark tooth (just the first spike with the three small ladder of points ascending) both put away.  Need to go through some other stuff more carefully after it dries.

At least you can still get out and do a bit of hunting!

Pretty decent results, as well. 

Thanks for sharing.  :)

@Fossildude19 Thanks for stopping by.  My trips haven't yielded much lately, may take up fishing for a while (although it seems colder now than in March.)

Well, I think it will be warming up soon enough. Been an odd April, for sure. 

Hopefully, the fish won't be self quarantining. :P
