    Default No guns when yer out 'Clubbin'



    Klikit, it's a vid....

    I parked the boat and held the dog when we let Agnes off to creep a couple hundred yards up on this sleeping bag of meats and oils
    It was snoozing and she ran a wide detour on the land behind it on its rivers mouth bank. It took awhile and I didnt find the camera untill I got to her, so I missed the "kill" on film, but You'll get the jist of this , Im sure.

    A Harpoon is the usual, and it usually kills them quickly and the floating shaft show where the Seal is in the river, but Agnes found the sharp blade of the harpoons tip missing, so the hook was adhoc, but did the trick quite well

    Awesome vid! Wish it showed more of the action but probably a good think it didn't Hahahaha. One hole, perfect hit! As normal chip, good explanation of why it was shallow and a seal there.

    Awesome! Wish I had a hunting partner like Agnes.

    We rank amateurs can share pix for some interest piquing.......

    They are Walrus Jaw bones with a hole drilled in the same place. Both came from the rivers bottom when the kids were swimming, and we figure them and some other 'net weights" were to hold down Seal nets, as they differ in not having much for floats, and double the weights,so to sink and drowned them, unlike a gill net. They are dense and heavy, and with the hundreds of Seals that come into the estuary and lagoon, were pretty sure thats what they were in use for, but what do us undegree'd folk know ? .

    That's fascinating. I wonder how old those weights were? Have you ever found short-faced bear skulls? Have you been contacted by the academics on your finds?

    No Shortface'd Bears ........(I wish , meg*****$$$ )

    The only time I had a scientist arrive and go out was when i found a Smiladon skull with one side pallet, back teeth and one side Saber tooth. I took 'em to the place I found it and we came up with a few more bones, but the surf and pretty much washed out its source, but he was able to photograph and take a soil sample in a core shovel.


    My most coolest find was a Dire-wolf, and I got a pretty penny from a scientist for that on.

    My oldest son found this, a triangular hole in its forehead, much like a Smiladon shape of their big teeth, but maybe another Bison's horn tip. It looks very much like it was on the mend when it died, there's bubbley connective bone where the fractures are, so it musta been healing quite a bit afterward of getting the poke.....

    Well Stranger, my tiny fossil collection is pretty pathetic. Found this "dinosaur tooth" in Cretaceous outcrops near Ft. Worth, TX, as a kid in the late 60's. There were masses of cephalopods (ammonites, turrilites, lots of sea creatures, etc) but thought this thing I found was a tooth was out of place. This fossil is 5 inches long, and may be nothing more than a goofy looking rock.
