  1. I'm visiting DeLand for a week and a half, and really want to find a spot to search for fossils or shark teeth, haven't found many online and I know people have their own secret spots. Pm me locations if you don't want to share them publicly guys, I am only hand searching with a few family members. I am willing to drive a couple hours to spend a day hunting fossils

    Petrified Wood Fossil Hunt!

    Hey everyone! I recently scouted out a new site in southern California and was very successful! We found a lot of petrified wood. I'm not going to be able to post everything, but here are some of the best pieces below!
  3. All, I have been being particularly careful to not go out and fossil hunt during this pandemic...and then with the tragic loss of Doren, irrational fears and depression began to overtake my love for fossils. I just kept thinking about what could happen and what did happen...but yesterday I realized that Cal wouldn't have wanted that. He had a deep appreciation for fossils and fossil hunting, an appreciation that he showed by his generous gifts to all that were interested. I don't know many active people on this forum that doesn't have a little bit of Doren's fossils in their own collection.

    Double Devonian delight!

    Today I spent a wonderful day fossilhunting with my 3 boys. The weather was really nice until about 2:30 when the clouds started to roll in and along with it, the rain. That's ok though as we spent about 3 1/2 hours fossilhunting the Devonian of New York. We started off at Cole Hill around 11 am. When we arrived I saw that they had bulldozed an area around one side of the roadcut and played down a drainage pipe. This bulldozing removed some of the talus pile while exposing large slabs that had been buried for years. I spent some time looking through the slabs. While there were some interesting

    Oldman River Spring fossil hunt

    It was finally time to shake off the mud from the Fall hunt and head south to the Lethbridge, Alberta area and search the banks of the Oldman River for ammonites that many have fallen out. Ideally we like to walk along the ice on the edge of the bank. That didn't happen. The highway cam photos showed ice on the river, but our location was wide open. We had lots of wind; so much that the shale was blowing into our faces. About 100 kmh but we held on! Quite the day on the steep slopes and a few success. Imagine my surprise when a chuck I found opened to reveal some great colour. The next day we
  6. So, who wants to get together and go fossil hunting on this Peace River this season? If the weather and scheduling allows, I would be happy to show up and engage in a group hunt - just to put some faces with the names I see in the forum, and do some networking, share tips, compare notes, etc. I have an extra sifter and an extra kayak (with paddle and life jacket) I can bring. I imagine that a weekend would be best, given that a lot of people work and go to school. As far as a place goes, the first place that comes to mind is Zolfo Springs. It sit
  7. Hello everyone, Yesterday my girlfriend & I went fossil hunting for birthday. This was the first fossil hunt the two of us did on our self, our previous hunts were all excursions with the Belgian Association for Paleontology. We visited two locations, but locations are part of the Formation of Gulpen, around 68 million years old, dating back to the Maastrichtian (these outcrops are part of the Maastrichtian type location where the first mayor Mosasaurus discovery was done). The first location we visited was a limestone outcrop next to the Albert Channel here in Belgium,
  8. Last saturday I went on my 2nd fossilhunt to the "Wienerberger quarry" in Rumst (Belgium) with my girlfriend and the BVP, my fossil club. This quarry is only accessible for fossil collections during official excursions organised by fossils clubs. The quarry existed out of multiple layers, the oldest was a oligocene clay layer dating back to the Rupelian (named for the region) around 33.90 - 20.10 mya, although I didn't hunt in that layer, some of the finds that could be done there were bivalves, gastropods and brachiopods. The layer where most people hunted was a very thin miocene

    What a great weekend

    Well folks Spring has finally arrived in Central New York! We actually had two days in a row of sun! The thermometer is reading 70Âș as I write this. Me and the boys were busy this weekend. Yesterday we collected some gypsum specimens, shot their BB gun and a found an old Coke bottle. Today we went to Briggs road for a short Trilo hunt, went fishing and went to one of the nicest waterfalls in our area. We all enjoyed being outdoors and soaking up the sun. While at the fossil site I found a huge spotted salamander wedged in between the shale. I felt bad for disturbing it but I didn't see it unti

    Maryland trip 9-28-2019

    This weekend family had to drive to Maryland for my son Dylan's Marching Band competition in Annapolis. We drove down Friday evening after I got out of work. The crazies were out in full force during the drive down, but we managed to arrive safely despite the reckless driving that we witnessed. Dylan's school did not perform till 6:30 PM Saturday evening, so the plan was to do a hunt at Brownies for a few hours then meet my parents for lunch, then go to the Naval stadium and watch the other schools perform until my son school performed. After a rather good breakfast at the hotel we headed to B

    Cole Hill Road 6-25-17

    Today my poor boys suffered. All because their father felt the need to find a trilobite. Yesterday was my nephews birthday. He lives almost three hours away. We left about 8:30amand didn't get home till almost midnight. I already knew that they would be exhausted in the morning and when they are tired it is hard for them to get excited about anything. BUT good old Dad had big plans so I got them up at 7:30 and I could tell it was going to be a rough day. We arrived at 10am and I debated on were to start. There was a lot of debris sitting on top of my favorite layer. I decided to try working a
  12. Hi everyone! After the recommendations of @Manticocerasman, @gigantoraptor & @Joeri_R I joined the BVP (Belgian Association for Paleontology). Today I got my confirmation mail of the membership. I have long been wanting to go out on fossil hunts especially in my own region which consist of cretaceous limestone from the Maastrichtian. Luckily for me the next fossil excursion planned by the BVP is a trip to the Romontbos quarry in Eben-Emael which is only a 20 - 25 minute drive for me. So I did sign up for said excursion but since it's my first ev

    Darktooth Family Trip

    My family and I have been in Maryland since Thursday evening. The past two days have involved alot of walking and intense heat. My calves and feet are sore and I have got a good sunburn. Friday morning we met up with forum member @RCW3D and his daughter. He took us out to a Miocene exposure along the Potomac River. We started our hunt a little before 10am and I think we got finished around 2pm. We all managed to find some goodies. RCW3D'S whale vert and articulated marlin verts definitely were the prize of the day. But I was happy with what I found though nothing as exciting. I found an assort

    Running of the Bulls.

    Hello to all my fossil friends! In the early hours of the morning, my family and I returned to the Arctic of the north, from a weeks vacation in sunny Florida. We had a great time at Disney and Universal Studios. But the highlight of the trip, for me, was a Fossilhunt at Cookie Cutter Creek with @digit (Ken) and his wife, Tammy. This trip was planned since the fall when I had asked Ken if he would be willing to meet up with me for a hunt. Originally I was wanting to hunt the Peace River. A couple weeks ago Ken told me that the water levels of the Peace were too high and we discussed other poss

    Cole Hill 1-8-18

    I decided to try my luck at Cole Hill today after seeing @Calico Jack and @Al Tahan's recent luck. With last night's rain, the roads were a bit slick on the ride out, but not terrible. I arrived around 10 and quickly saw where they had been working. They both said they had only been there for a short time but there sure was fresh rock thrown everywhere. Somebody is fibbing! I decided to work a spot close to where I found my last couple, mostly complete Dipleuras. I wish I had something exciting to report but all I found was a lot of the usual suspects. Cephalons, pygidiums, Bembexia, various

    2 hour Briggs Road Hunt

    Today was a cold one here in Central New York. I wasn't really planning on doing much today but then I got the fossil itch. I decided to take a quick trip to Briggs Road and try my luck at some trilos. Got to the site around 3:15 pm. On the ride out I saw remnants of snow that probably came down the night before. There wasnt much, but that's not a good sign this early in the season. Anyways when I got there I could see that someone else had been out there recently and had opened up a couple spots. I immediately got to work and was surprised how many partials I was finding. Now I have to mentio
  17. Yesterday I was in New Jersery for my son, Dylan's marching band competition. We had half the day free until they were playing at Rutgers stadium so we met up with @frankh8147 to hunt one of the Cretaceous streams. We met up around 9am and it was raining. Not a torrential downpour, but enough to soak into your clothes even with a raincoat. I wasn't deterred and neither was Frank. Heck it didn't seem to bother him at all. I would like to say Thanks to Frank for being a great host and guide to me and my family. He has such a great wealth of knowledge of the fossils from that area. Plus this was

    New Jersey Hunt

    Summer is here, Yay! I haven't been as active on the forum lately as I usually am. Now that summer is in full swing there are many things to do that keep me away from fossils. It has been very hot and humid the past few weeks so I haven't done any hunts in awhile. But on tuesday I managed to sneak in a short hunt at Ramanessin brook with my family and met up with @frankh8147 on our way home from Ocean City. We arrived around 2pm and Frank met us at the school parking lot. After a short walk we got down to the stream and frank took us to a spot that he felt would be productive. While we sifted

    A Good day at Cole Hill

    I took a trip to Cole Hill yesterday, and it turned out to be a decent day weather wise, than what was forecast. Iwas expectins rain but that didn't happen thankfully. This was the first time that I have been there since all the snow is gone from the site. I went to my favorite spot and immediately saw how weathered it was. This can be a double edged sword. On one hand it makes digging easier, while on the other had sometimes the fossils will crumble apart. I got to work right away and was rewarded instantly with some nice Spinocyrtia granulosa. They popped right out of the matrix. I had a fe
  20. I am planning a trip to Cole Hill on Saturday April 14th to search for my favorite trilobite, Dipleura dekayi. Wondering if anyone would like to join in the fun? I plan on arriving at sunrise and staying till 12-1 pm. Maybe longer depending on how things go. Dave

    Deep Springs 3-31-18

    I made it back out today with my boys. The weather made it into the 50's with full sun, so it was a very nice day to be out. I managed to grab some of the goodies I left behind yesterday plus some of what I found today. I have moved a lot of rock these past two days and there are slabs and hash plates everywhere. Hopefully they will get a chance to weather before I get back there to split them. If somebody else gets to them first then that's just the way it is. Dylan did good on the trilo parts today. Devin just kind of did boy stuff. Similar to the last time I brought them out. Here is todays
  22. I am planning a trip to hunt the cretaceous streams of N.J. on Saturday March 31. I am bringing my boys along for this one. I was wondering if any of you Jersey hunters would like to meet up and join us for the day or just stop by and say hello? I was going to go to Maryland but I don't like to have my boys out at the cliffs, its a little much for my youngest. Plus it has been 2 years since I have been to NJ, I want to get my hands on some Cretaceous goodies!

    Deep Springs 3-30-18

    I am currently getting over the flu so I decided to put off my trip to New Jersey till I am more ready for a long roadtrip. With that being said, I needed to get my fossil fix and decided to hit up my favorite local site. I left the house at 5:30 am, during which it was lightly raining. I got to Deep Springs by 6:40 and was surprised by how much snow was still lying around even though it hasn't snowed for around 2 weeks. Luckily the snow was melted on a good portion of the site, particularly the ledge that I wanted to work. I managed to find a nice piece of fossil wood around 14 inches long. W
  24. Today I took a trip to a much underrated fossil site, Briggs Road, in Earlville New York. For those who don't know Briggs is only a couple miles North from the much talked about Deep Springs site. I had been wanting to get back to the trilo layer here as this is a great spot for Eldredgeops rana But this road is a seasonal use road so when it snows they only plow until the last house before the site and leave a big pile of snow blocking the road. Finally after a few days of warmth the snow pile was gone. The rock here is quite weathered right now and all I used was a small pry bar to help brea
  25. Yesterday turned out to be a great day to go on a fossilhunt in Central New York. We arrived at Deep Springs at 10am and found that while there was still some snow and ice, there was also plenty of exposed rock to search through. On the ride out, the sun had stayed behind the clouds mostly. And then when we arrived, almost on cue the sun popped out the entire time we were there. We immediatly got to work. For me the day was about collecting "fossils", not just Dipleuras. It has been so long since my last hunt I wanted to collect any worthy specimens. For those who know me, I am not much of a s
