Digging close to home

New places to hunt are hard to come by lately. Pits are closing everywhere because of the economy. Luckily there is a pit right down the road road from me that's still in business. This pit normally produces alot of shells and echinoids  Recently they hit what we think is an ancient sinkhole. There has been just about every Pleistocene mammal in Florida pulled out of there in the last couple of months. I've seen numerous whole mammoth teeth come out and many were juvenile and baby teeth. I didn't get any whole teeth on my trip. Just a few misc bones, a nice toe bone from a mammoth.
