So I decided to venture outside of my comfort zone of Calvert Cliffs and head over to the Potomac at Purse State park. Low tide was right around 5pm so i decided to head over around 1 and walk for a while. I figured that since I was going late in the day that I would have lots of company on the beach. Well I was wrong on on having company on the beach and on the amount of time I would need to preform a good search. I got to the parking lot and empty I quickly got on my gear and made the mile hike down to the beach. I was very happy to see that there were no footprints anywhere the water was low and super calm. I decided to head to the north first and was very happy to find 2 crocodile teeth because not many are found at my normal stomping grounds. I then decided to fill up a bag of shells for mom because she loves shells and there was an abundance at this beach. I then turned my attention to the south and was rewarded with a pristine otodus and a nice paraorthacodus clarkii a nice cretolamna and some other fantastic teeth my knowledge of the paleocene is not as it is on the miocene. Well i walked all the way to the point when i noticed the sun starting to disappear and realized i still had a 1/2 mile walk back to the trail and another mile back to my truck. I could have spent another 4 hours searching well i will know better for next time. I have also included my past couple of trips along the cliffs my best finds from over there were a couple of stunning ecphoras, a few megalodons, and a hadrodelphis that is my first all in all february has been treating me very well.

I think that I will try to come down in the beginning of March. I will be in touch. I love the Cliffs, its been over a year since I have been there. I went to Douglas point over the summer. It's definately time to get back down there. I can't do squat here in New York. We are back to snow, snow, and more snow after a brief break in the weather.

Looking forward to hunting with you and I know the feeling we had a prolonged cold snap back in March that froze everything up solid and threw us all off the beach with ice

Glad someone else gave Purse a try, and just like me got quite the haul! For only a few hours at Purse, you sure got some incredible finds. Those Otodus teeth are beautiful and you found some big Sand Tigers in great condition to go with them. Love the finds from the Cliffs too. Super jealous of those decent Hemis. I can't wait to get my hands on a sizeable snaggle...I've only managed small ones so far. Anyway, congrats on all the great finds! Hoppe hunting!

Oh yes I know! They are quite common at the Cliffs. Brownie’s Beach is my favorite hunting site. I’ve been able to find a good amount, just not any big ones yet.
