The Best Megalodon Tooth Hunting Site I Ever Found
I don't throw around the word best especially when it comes to hunting megalodon teeth because there have been so many good spots during my 30+ years of collecting, but I feel confident in using it here. I can't believe how lucky I got finding this spot. It was completely untouched and the bottom of the dig was just at the top of the fossil bearing formation. That meant all I had to do was look down in some spots to find teeth, and in the rest, I only had to dig off a foot or two of overburden. There were bones everywhere which is the tell-tale indicator of megalodon and other fossil shark teeth. It didn't take long to dig one out, then another, and another. Then when I walked on the piles after heavy rain there were more big teeth. All together I was able to collect this site for about a week and I found 17 complete megalodon teeth in that short amount of time. I'm not planning on retiring anytime soon, but it is going to be very difficult to top this spot. Summerville, I love you!

Our Best Great White Shark Tooth and Arrowhead Hunting Spot So Far
Fossildiva and I have been crushing it at our favorite creek - the best great white shark teeth and arrowhead spot (except for scuba spots) we know! Its so hard to find good spots any more that when we get a good one we really put the pedal to the metal and give it all we have. This spot has produced awesome fossil shark teeth from great white sharks, bull sharks, sand tigers, mako sharks, modern tiger sharks, and now even an ultra-rare cow shark tooth (for the lowcountry of South Carolina, anyway). Add on top of that super arrowheads, tools, spears, and other native american artifacts and you have a recipe for greatness.

The Belfast Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is a 4,664-acre tract located ten miles northwest of Newberry on Highway 56 near the Kinards community. The property is situated on the Newberry/ Laurens County line, with most of the land area in Newberry County. Col. John Simpson of Belfast, Ireland, settled the land in 1786. The historic Belfast Plantation house, located in Laurens County, was built by Col. Simpson in the early 1800's.
Champion Paper Company formerly owned this property, followed by International Paper Company. Champion Paper Company maintained the area for recreation and forest products production for many years and their regional headquarters was located here.
Upland pine forests and hardwood drains are found throughout the property. Wildlife plantings are located along power lines and road edge openings within the tract. Wildlife management practices include pine thinning and prescribed burns. All land management activities are conducted according to Best Management Practices as prescribed by the SC Forestry Commission. Forest management emphasis is on wildlife habitat improvement.
Wildlife game species present include deer, turkey, rabbit, squirrel, dove, quail and raccoon. Other furbearer species found here include fox, bobcat and coyote. Many songbirds, raptors, reptiles and amphibians occur on the area. Plants in hardwood drains include most species common to the piedmont. Plant and animal diversity in the pine stands will be increased through timber thinning and prescribed fire.
