Field CollectingOklahoma, Texas - Where do we go to Rock Hunt?

5th Aug 2019 23:01 UTCsimeon hendrix

Hello all, my family is new to rock hunting and we love it. Please, how do I know where we can legally go to hunt in Texas and Oklahoma? I'm unsure even where to start.

Thank you!!

There's another thread for rock collecting in Texas linked below. I don't know much about sites in Oklahoma. Long story short, Texas is basically all private land except rivers and roadcuts. Sometimes private land owners let mineral clubs on their property for field trips, so your best bet is to find a local club to join.

I suggest that you search for lapidary/collector clubs in Oklahoma/Texas. They are easy enough to find on-line. View their website/newsletters and make the effort to correspond with them or if they are local, join them.

And that goes for any area, anywhere.
