Fossil Hunting Doesn't Always Go My Way

I must admit, I find some pretty cool fossils sometimes. The key there is sometimes. Other times, I come back with nothing really notable. This is a collection of those days...
Location Dorchester County, South Carolina, USA

Date Added2/20/2007

This is the result of 3 hours of walking a field around a pond after a heavy rain.
Walking the same pond after another rain. This was my last time hunting at that spot.
This is the first day digging on a new pond. I only hunted there 2 or 3 times, and it was never really good.
2 hours in my favorite ditch. I found some nice little ones, though.
Walking my favorite ditch again. We didn't get as much rain as I thought when I decided to go there.
I walked after a heavy rain at the last good pond I knew about. I wish I could have digged that day!
This was my most recent trip to my favorite ditch a couple of weeks ago. I'm getting worried about that place. Its been a couple of trips now since I found anything good. Is this spot dying? I sure hope not!
