Open Season In Aurora

This was the first time that the wife and I have been in on the first day.  I had high hopes of finding my first big Meg or Paratodus.  Well it didn’t happen this time, but I did manage to get my first whole cow shark.  On the other hand the wife had the best day ever in the mine.  The first thing she found on the way out to the back was a pristine seal canine just waiting to be picked up.  Then when we made it out to the back she found her biggest Meg yet.  I guess I will just have to wait until next time.  Until then…..good hunting!!!!!

Location Lee Creek Mine, Aurora, North Carolina, USA
