DW called me and asked me if I wanted to do some hunting today. I of course was all for some hunting. I haven’t really hunted much since the past trip to Aurora. We decided to hit some old spots that we haven’t been to in awhile. The first spot was a real downer because the exposed fossil layers we once knew were no longer there and had been buried. However, all hope was not lost. There were still a few small piles left at the site. I was walking one that had foot prints on it. Then I see a serrated blade sticking out of the edge. I don’t know how anyone would have missed this, but they did. It turned out to be a whole meg! The last time I found a nice whole meg over 4 inches was a year ago. DW bagged a few shamers, but no keepers. Then we headed over to another old spot. We ended up digging a HUGE trench in the ground. The both of us were finding meg frags, but none were whole. Right before I was about to finish digging and call it a day. I uncovered a nice large mako. The best one I found all year.
