Hi all,


I am new here and fairly new to fossil hunting. I live in the Ocala area but have only ever fossil hunted in peace river, yankeetown and Venice beach so far. (Mainly because I haven't figured out where is off limits vs ok). 


I am an outdoors enthusiast in general and love observing wildlife and moving snakes off busy roads. 


I hope to learn a lot and maybe figure out somewhere within an hour or two of here to check out this weekend or in the future.

Welcome from north Georgia.  If you haven't already, you should join the Florida Paleontological Society.  They are a great group of paleo enthusiasts!  They organize a couple of high quality field trips each year, but I expect you could also get a lot of advice about what is OK vs off limits.


I also prod snakes to get off the road, and turtles even more.  I hate to see them end up as road kill.

Welcome from Illinois.





Fossil hunting is easy -- they don't run away when you shoot at them!
