RE: Question



This is the 4th time this message has arrived.  (Hopefully your email service is fixed by now). 
 
Other than a joke made about it, no one has answered it.   There is a reason. 
 
It takes a lot of study to determine where you might find fossils.  You have to have the right kind of rocks.  The rocks need to be the right age.  They have to be from the right kind of rock formation.  You have to be able to get to the rocks (details as to legality and ownership, etc).  AND finally, you must be lucky! 
 
To explain to you all the details involved would take at least one semester of a college course, if not more.  [This is why you haven't received any real replies - It would take too long to give you the full information].  And even once you have learned all the variables mentioned above (and others that I haven't detailed), you may still NOT find any fossils. 
 
Sorry if this was insufficient help for you.  If you begin by asking some simple, _detailed_ questions (e.g. "What kinds of rock are most likely to be fossil bearing rocks?"), you may get some more detail help.
