Peace river toe bone and vert


Recommended Posts

I have found some unique items from my last trip I would like to share. But first I would like to say that i'm sad to see how people are treating the rivers lately. I have noticed a large influx of hunters and thats fine but the people digging huge holes in the sides of the river walls and bringing teams out to excavate large portions of riverbed make me sad. Gainesville has already stopped shovel digging in the rivers. Peace river is next if people don't start respecting the rivers more. So anyway I found what I think is a toe bone on my last trip. It was in a very over hunted area but there were fossils left out everywhere. People are only hunting for megs and literally leaving the other goodies behind. This bone was actually just laying in the stream next to a large pile of rocks someone had dug. The second fossil I need help identifying is this vert that I found on top of another pile. However this pile was not man dug it was just a natural river deposit. Thank you in advance for your help.
