Found a double bitted axe stuck deep into a tree, which had been there for a long long time telling by the growth around the head and condition of the handle. Unfortunately no pics being as it was in the 80's and cell phones didn't have cameras.

It seems that driver may have been out in Idaho a few years ago. I recently went hunting with a guy and we were going into Hells Canyon on a backroad and the guy I was with had run across a truck that got stuck way out there. That road was scary for a regular truck, let alone a semi.

My guess would be that it is stolen, and the contents taken and the truck abandoned.

Found a Car in a very remote area of woods.. My buddies and I knew there was a dead body in the trunk.. We were almost scared to get near it, Popped the trunk and it was clear.. Had New York Plates on it. Called my CHP buddy and gave him the info. He later told me it was stolen in new York City and had been used in a couple of robberies across the county.. He said they must have been trying to pay for their trip across the US

Found this last Monday while coyote hunting. 2012 Polaris RZR 570 with Utah OHV sticker. Called SBC Sheriff and had to have them follow me. Ended up being stolen out of St George Utah on Nov 11. It was missing both front tires, one rear tire, and the key hole looked like someone shoved a flat head into it and tried to turn. Other than that, it all looked like it was there. Thats my RZR XP behind it.

Ive seen an old indian arrow. It was awesome. Had extremely old feathers with some type of wooden bark or whatever tied to the arrow head which was broken stone. It was sticking out from the ground.

Another weird thing I saw was an old VW buggy out in the middle of the woods with no roads around it. Brushes were growing around it.

Cool thread!
Yeah that truck doesn't look stuck to me, but what do I know. Come think of it I've tried to get them out of spots that didn't look too bad to me either LOL

Back in the early 90s a college friend's dad administered some bank owned land after the savings and loan collapses I think? anyway something like that, this was in Texas, but there was this old hunting? cabin that had been undisturbed for decades, evidently, by the amount of dust and the 1960's or 70's style labels on the brands of products that were in there. It was really creepy. Even had some kind of yarn and bead sculpture LOL

Jeez we never even thought about eyes and ears. Well I think my friend had ear plugs once for skeet shooting. And my shotgun was cash and carry, no records, 870 rem express for $199 and movies were a quarter and popcorn a nickle, and we wore onions on our belts, cuz that was the style in my day, and nickles had bees on them... ;-)

A nice, neat pile of hunting clothes next to a road. Probably been there a couple of months. Socks, underwear, shirt, pants, beanie, no shoes.

Creeped us out because we just KNEW there was a crazy naked guy running around in the forest.

Gave a ranger the GPS where to find the stuff and never went back.

Found a .50 cal ammo can in the middle of nowhere on a super steep hillside while mushroom hunting. Was all excited to open it up and see what I got. Turned out to be one of those nerdy geocache sites.

I found what looked like an old mine shaft this year. Not a big hole but it had a little bracing and a ladder going down about 6 feet. Then it went into the hill.

Weird because the hole went pretty much straight down from the surface. Glad I found it during the afternoon and not when I was walking out after dark.

I didn't take any pics, and for that I am sorry. But, last year I was in Glamis driving my buggy along the canal, and halfway between Glamis and Gordons I saw an ammo box and pulled over, my friends stopped too.

We ended up finding 16 7.62 linked ammo boxes, all taped together in pairs with chem lights attached to them, full of dirt.

We also found four metal "crates" that each hold 4 7.62 ammo cans like this:


And we found one big rocket parachute flare can like this:


Inside were two good, unfired flares;


And the ground was littered with fired flare tubes and spent .50 bmg shells. everything looked like it had been there for months, the duct tape holding the cans together was turning to dust.

I dont know what all that was about, but we got some free stuff anyway.


(and no, we were not in the bombing range, we were at least 5 miles away.)

Found a pot forest one time while deer hunting. A Swiss army knife in a stream while trout fishing, a red Ryder bb gun again while fishing, some pot rolled up into a bike tire flat repair kit....come to think of it maybe I should go fishing more often.

Good thread, even though I can't contribute much......abandoned underwear of varying conditions; an old coffee pot on the side of a mountain; gold and quartz rock in Utah while mule deer hunting; illegals while hunting south Az.

One time when my father and I were squirrel hunting in the Stanislaus National Forest back in the 80's we found a tree house about 30 feet up a ponderosa pine. This was about 6 miles north of Arnold. He triangulated the spot using his lenstatic compass, a map he always carried, and 3 good landmarks that he could see from the top of the ridge. While I climbed up and checked it out. The thing looked brand new when I got up to it. New-ish lumber, and no rust on the nails. Yet it was completely empty. Weird...

In MO deer hunting we found a bunch of TVs way back in a swamp, Couldn't figure out why someone would haul them through all the nasty deadfalls and mud to just toss them. None of them were shot up like most TVs you find hunting. Later learned a tornado had hit a train near there and lifted a bunch of TVs up in the air and tossed them all over the countryside.

Found a Santeria site where people were killing chickens and there were the little voodoo dolls with pictures of people on them. Got the willies and got the heck out of there.

Found a few old homesteads and cemeteries in MO that were hidden way back in the timber. Kind of creepy to check out, they were from the 1800s.

Found a brand new 1911 Springfield USGI parkerized on the freeway near Cache Creek wildlife area. The price tag was in the box, From all places? Targetmasters West... Knew a clerk there, between him & another friend, tracked down the rightful owner.

Next day, the pistol was returned to the owner.

To make matters better, the owner had the same name as a Marine from my reserve unit. He was a Corporal from my H&S unit. Got to tell him that I returned his dad's .45

Found a handheld GPS while hog hunting in Texas. I got lucky and stumbled accross the owner a couple hours later and was able to return it. Creepiest thing I ever found while hunting in NorCal was a well tied noose hanging in a tree. It was empty but after I cut it down I decided that was a good enough sign to call it a day. lol

Found a Mtn lion elk kill in norther AZ, still decently fresh.

Lots of arrows, few knives - each time around an aria that looked like some filled their deer / elk tag.

Although I was not there for it my buddy watched someone pull a 12 gauge out of the water when fishing. They think it fell off the back of a duck boat.

Cell phone - it was a blackberry and my we had a charger for it so we charged it and called the number marked "dad". Hour later the guy came and got it and actually gave us 50 bucks. For college students that was beer money

Abandoned trucks and cars, skulls, sheds. 2 people screwing in a tent....

Indian ruins in Sedona. There were pockets in the stone floor that looked like they were used to grind grain. We also found chipped arrow heads in the aria. On alot of the hill tops you can find small sections of walls and arrow heads if you look. This was a cave that was tucked back on a huge dome of rock.

Found this target, an ammo can and rounds. Me and a buddy were making our way through an area and were about 100 yards apart. When we met back up he was like "guess what I found" and I was like "no, guess what I found"

To my surprise he pulled out the lid to a 50 cal ammo can, I just laughed as I pulled the rest of the can out from behind my back. We also found a bunch of ammo near the lid of the can, .223 blanks according to the side of the ammo can, but I believe they were snake shot or something, sounded like something loose inside like shot shell.

A few hundred yards away in a wash, we found this target, half submerged in dirt, probably got swept away in a flash flood. Use it today, great working target.

Not a personal story but I was in Foster's Bighorn Restaurant and Bar in Rio Vista after Pheasant shooting and was admiring the photos on the wall. I came across this one black and white photo which showed the while bleached bones of a human and moose with a rifle laying between them on the ground. The captioned mentioned that they come across the scene while hunting. Obviously the hunter had mortally wounded the moose but not until the moose got it's revenge by killing the hunter. They reported it and there was a missing hunter from the previous year. Very creepy looking.

Ive found numerous pot grows, abandoned cars, single use abandoned camps and a meth lab.

The weirdest ive found by a long shot was a hidden child playhouse village. We found it in the bottom of a very brushy canyon that had no trail or road access. Every piece must have been secretly packed in by hand and assembled by hand. There were roughly 12 or so hand made and pre fabricated (the plastic ones) child playhouses configured into a small village. Some houses were fully furnished with small tables, chairs and beds. Some had plates and silverware on the tables.

The rancher who owned the land had no idea they were there and had no idea how they got there. He also had no idea how he would remove them because the access even for him was close to impossible.

The playhouse village was partially engulfed by the brush and it seemed that it had been unvisited for a few years. The rancher said it could have only been there less than 5 years because there was a fire on his ranch and that canyon had burned during that fire. I do not even want to think about who put it there and for what reason.

That village was so creepy that when we discovered it all of us fully grown fully armed men wanted to leave the area as soon as we found it. We were there no longer than 3 minutes and we left. We were so creeped out as we walked out we would walk in front of each other so that we wouldnt be last in line. Eventually we broke out into a complete run in a nervous giggling panic.

We never went back. When we talk about that day we refer it as "chucky land" 100% true story.

The oddest thing I ever found was hunting with my father. We found two long belts of linked 50 cal ammo. We could only figure out that some grunt got tired of carrying it.
