Brown Bear is back in action

Recommended Posts

Brown Bear

Checked out Mudslinger Tours in Gainesville with my daughter and niece today for a few hours. Its my first hunt in a little over a year due to various challenges now behind me. Not a bad haul for a short trip with kids. Their finds are not pictured... bottom line- The Brown Bear is back in action!

Actually what I think you have there is the squid pen of a Energiserous bunnirostris. A very rare squid from your location. Picture included of the pristine holotype specimen.

Anyone know of places on the Santa Fe near the springs that are still sifter-friendly?

 

Second Question- anyone have a map of the watershed in Gainesville that shows park boundaries?

Went to another spot this past weekend. Had some great luck and found a nice big hemi with pretty amber color, a camel tooth and a 3-toed horse tooth, but then bad luck stuck and my bucket fell into the creek and those pieces were reclaimed by the creek. The second half of the day was not bad but less quality. Here are a few pics of the better finds...
