I'm a rookie relative to fossil hunting. I think I know what this is, but i don't want to get ahead of myself.

I'm thinking  a Baculite. What do ya'll think.

Sadly, doesn't look like a fossil to me. Baculites usually have squiggly suture lines that mark the separation of chambers. It also matters where you found it. Though in Louisiana (assuming you found it there), there aren't any exposed Cretaceous deposits that I'm aware of, so not baculite. Come on over to TX and you can find plenty!

I agree.

Possibly a burrow infilling of something or geologic. 

But the OP does say in his tags, desert find, del rio, texas.

Not trying to dispute, but just to be clear, It was found in texas, about twenty minutes outside of Del Rio.

I'm thinking geologic as well. Maybe an infill.
