Good results fossilin after the rain...

The rains were heavy last night....so I figures I hit some spots around Summerville and see what may have washed out. I arrived at the first spot and started scanning the area. Like a broken record...broken tooth,shamer, broken tooth, shamer...that spot was not producing. Then on the way back to my car I came across a nice little yellow chubutensis...ok that made me feel a little better. So onward to the next spot and the saga continued...broken tooth after broken tooth although they were larger broken ones so that was a good sign. Then I spotted it !... a large Angustiden lying right out in the open. I started the chant in my mind...please be whole-please be whole... then picked it up and saw it was. A 2-3/8ths inch Angy with the tip. I was happy with that tooth, but continued hunting and not 5 minutes later I came across a rarity. A 1-1/2 inch Benedini just lying there. I picked it up thinking...I finally found a Summerville Benedini ... I found a couple nice ones not too long ago so I was hoping my streak would continue and I'm sure glad it did !!!
