The perils of fossil hunting

I met up with DW at GMR to kill a couple hours the day before our hunt in Aurora. We tried the area I found the monster meg last year, it's getting harder to find a spot that hasn't been completly sifted through. We would move along the creek bed , toss our backpacks down and sift awhile, grab our packs then move on to the next spot. At the one spot I saw the copperhead within a few feet of DW's pack. It could have easily slithered under or in DW's backpack. I'll definitely be paying closer attention to where I lay my pack in the future. I did manage to get a couple decent GW's
