    All finds were on private property which I have permission to hunt.

    Looks like a fossil to me. Possibly the center section of a large trilobite.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of a young animal's molar. Baby mammoth? https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...77379115000980

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    From what I've been able to find it is rather large for a trilobite.

    Some Genus of trilobites could grow to over two feet long. But I don't think that is where this is leading.

    But I do see where Kray had the idea. He may be correct. Hard to tell from images.

    Thanks, Charlie. The thought of a mastodon or mammoth did not occur to me, and I believe that's a more likely candidate.

    That's amazing! I will try to capture some better images.
