Hey folks, I opened up a wrapped fossil today and my jaw dropped to the floor! I didnt know my yougest son found this on our last fossil hunting trip. We were all busy the first day finding stuff and wrapping it up. But Wow!!! Just cooler than you know what! Belive me, weve been on many, many fossil hunting trips, but have never found this kind of stuff before. Ive always liked camping under the stars and cooking over a real campfire, but its just super cool to be able to find this kind of quality fossils once in a great while! I know this is a female of this species and the name starts with a J, but i really dont know the name of it? But it will be super cool to be able to prep this big beauty out!!! Enjoy

Wow indeed, you must be living in some fossil-rich area I guess.

Hey Knarf. I wish I lived in a fossil rich area! I had to drive 13 hours to get to this place to find these great ammos. I am finding out though, that there are some fossil sites north of me about 2 1/2 drive. I will be exploring those sites this next year.

A 13 hours drive? :o

Here you can't even drive that long without crossing a few country borders, it's that small here. I already end up in Germany within half an hour.

Hey Knarf. All my UK buddys tell me the same thing. we ignorant Americans dont realize just how good we have it here? and lets not get into politics, I just get pissed off at all our politicians when I start talking about them. But yeah, we have lots of room for fossil hunting here. The really good thing is, most folks in this huge state of Montana dont fossil hunt! Seems like I have one huge backyard all to myself sometimes. The bad thing is, it gets really cold and snowy here, so fossil hunting comes to a stop from November to April, but, the winter time gives me time to do all that fun Prepping! fun prepping.

Thanks caveman. My only problem is that I wont get the 220 electricity in my garage for 2 or 3 weeks, so I cant start prepping until thats done. The anticipation is killing me!!!

Hello jimmeke. I have found the occasional ammo over the years, but now that ive moved to the state of Montana I have been on three trips just to hunt ammos with more trips already planned for next year. I used to be into the fossil fishes, but then I found my first crab and got into the fossil crabs for about 5 or 6 years. Check out my photo album, I have a few good fossils there to see.
