Geodeman has been hunting the Keokuk Geodes for over 30 years now.   Geodeman has many locations that he hunts, from Keokuk up to Burlington, IA, up to the Bonaparte area and all along the Des Moines River by canoe..  Some of the largest Keokuk Geodes he has ever found came out of the Des Moines River.  Check out all the pictures below.. Geodeman and I collected 99% of these specimens ourselves.  They now reside in private collections and museums all over the world.
