Great hot day on POC

Recommended Posts

Sister called and asked to take my son for the day and my wife said she had things to do so I took that as my cue to head out to the creek. I really wanted to hit the North Sulphur with all the rain and missed my chance Friday morning with the water still being a bit high for my taste, but I didn't have that kind of time. My wish list for the day consisted of any artifact and a new type of Ptychodus from the bucket list.

 

I headed to a spot I have only hit a couple of times and after working my way down through all of the muck from the flooding, I finally hit a gravel bar. The first bar provided a couple of broken Cretodus and one small Ptychodus. There were absolutely no foot prints in the fresh deep mud so I was excited to work my way downstream. I was a little disappointed after the first half hour and only a few broken teeth but as I worked my way downstream it improved. Found several nice P. whipplei and then a very cool point, a scraper, and a very nice what I am guessing is a plesiosaur tooth (which I have in the ID forum). Not on the list but one I would gladly add if I had known it was a possibility. Found some bison teeth and lots of bone as well as one  very nice Cretodus lateral tooth. I really wanted to stay longer but had to make it back home for my "curfew". Overall a good two hours and I am sure the best was left behind. Thanks for looking.

You did great. I like the old knife artifact and the scraper.

What an incredible haul!!! :faint:

 

Could you please explain a bit more about the bones in the back? As in what animals?

 

Well done,

I believe the long bone is deer, there is a deer toe bone, and knuckle, and a couple cow or bison bones the other two. On the left are a couple chunkasaurus, probably mosasaur bone chunks.

So many cow bones in that spot. A meat processing place once dumped remains there from what I"m told.

There are plenty of butchered bones down there. I heard the same thing. You can usually tell the butchered.

I was out there on Sunday as well.  From what I was told by someone who had been out there the week before, all that rain led to about a 15 ft. rise in the creek.  I didn't doubt that as my favorite bars no longer existed and a lot of the gravel had been spread out as far as the eye could see.  Some of my best finds were about 2-3 ft. under the water (was sifting gravel).  Love that point and scraper you found.
