4/12/16: post hail hunt in the Eagle Ford- north tx

Recommended Posts

John S.

North Texas got hit with 2+ inch hail yesterday. Luckily my house was sparred but I did hit a creek in the path of that storm. Found a few things including a large chunk of bone, few fish verts, possible plesiosaur tooth?, and some shark teeth. Eagle ford float material 85-90 mya.

Video of the storm: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kMveT5HqmMw

Nice finds John. I'm glad your house was spared. A fellow TFF member who I hunt with had extensive damage.

Nice variety of finds John. Yeah, a couple of coworkers didn't make it into the office today as a result of that storm.

Nice finds! Allen got pegged with golf balls but our friends in Wylie got grapefruit. One ended up in their garage. Glad it missed you.
