Headed out to do a little hunting and it was a gorgeous day out today. I got down to the water and immediately headed to my favorite spot. The water was high today, which seems to be coming a common theme. I haven't done a good amount of digging and sifting in ages, so i decided to put some work in. After about a half an hour of digging and finding some small teeth here and there, I came across a whale ear bone! It's the first one I've ever found so i was pretty excited. I kept digging and the only other find worth mentioning is a little beat up mako with a tip ding. I decided to take a break and walk the beach as the tide had dropped since first getting there. I was almost back to my sifting spot when i bent down to pick a little black mako that was laying on top in about 6 inches of water. Sitting right next to the mako was this little Meg. Its a little beat up but its still nice to find a Meg (keeps the spirit up). If anyone else hunts Westmoreland frequently let me know.I hope you enjoy the pics!

Sounds good man. When I get a chance to get down that way I'll be sure to get in touch with you. Thanks! I do like that tooth, but I've seen some of the other pics you've posted. You find some nice stuff as well. Still can't believe I found one. Still pumped!

Love seeing what you found in Westmoreland, I've been there twice in the past 2 weeks. I'm new to fossil hunting but I'm loving it, even got lucky and found a croc tooth at Westmoreland on my first trip there! Anytime that you're going, I'd love to meet up with you...I'm in Fredericksburg so WSP is probably going to be a routine trip for me. I'm also planning on hitting up Purse at least monthly since I have to travel to Indian Head MD for work once a month.

Thanks Sixgill, nice to hear from you. RCW3D, If you ever want to set up a trip just let me know. I haven't been out recently due to how hot it is and how bad summer is for westmoreland (picked over), but the fall is coming soon and its a great time to hunt!

Sounds good, I'm taking the family to Purse tomorrow. My girls enjoy it there because they are able to find a lot more teeth even though they are small. I'm actually going back to Purse on Wednesday with coworkers too. My "home base" is NSWC Indian Head and we have a meeting there once a month, two of my coworkers asked me to take them out for shark teeth too so after our meeting, we will head down there.

I actually like WSP better, I work harder there but I feel like there is a much better chance of finding something very cool.
