Found a pair of costa del mars, in good condition, Sunday morning at my lease. Must be trespassers cause no one in the lease knows anything about them.

A buddy of mine just found a log laying on a 110 inch bucks head! His horns were sticking out either side of the tree. Maybe he will chime in and post some pictures.
Another time I was huntin oconee NF and I was probably 1 mile off the dirt road as the sun poked up I saw something red through the woods I eased over to it and it was a rockdale newspaper stand full of pots and pans. A guy had taken a ol hedge bush and bent it over and mad a little house out of it. Kinda felt like I was being watched so I got outta there quick and in a hurry. The bad thing about it is for him to even get to a gas station it's a 14 -16 mile walk. Makes ya kinda wonder what he has done to be living like that?

Well we it was found years ago but none the less. A Buckeye tree. Every new hunter we get, we take and get them a buckeye for good luck. This year my dad and I took my oldest Daughter for her Buckeye.

That's memories right there.

I caught two people smoking away in a grown up clear cut in Talbot Co. I was only 15 at the time, alone and had a bow in my hand, so I kept quiet and eased back away from them. I could hear them coughing and hacking their fool heads off. I heard them leave, walked up to the dirt road, and lying in the ditch across from the woods road that they pulled out of was an RC Cola can that was bent in across the middle and it had ten or so little holes punched into the bent portion. The area around the holes was burnt black from them smoking their stuff on it.

My cousin found a five point, 78" shed in Macon County that has a bullet hole clean through the base.
I will get a pic of it to post.

A chair, whole box of oreos and a 24 pack of beer.
Everything was empty but very fresh.

This was on the edge of a dove field on a WMA...

a couple of weeks ago on our deer-dog club, one guy came out of the woods with a 3' tall sponge bob (stuffed animal). no clue how it got in the middle of our 14,000 acre club.

I was fishing with a buddy, in what I think was the Oconee river (been a very long time), and a guy comes walking up with a giant rope slung over his shoulder and asked us if we had seen his pet bull. He told us not to worry, that the bull was "real friendly," so we got the heck out of there.

I was also wandering around the woods in Loganville and came across some old graves right off of Rabbit Farm Rd.? That's also been a long time. I think the name on the grave was Leach, they were very old and sunken in. I don't know if they're still there.

This was a wierd thing that happened...., close enough!

One time, me and a friend was deer hunting during the week on our hunting lease. We was sitting there in camp after having dinner at about 10:00 at night. We had a fire burning just hanging around when this vehicle pulls in through our gate with his lights shining toward us. This small truck just sets there for a few minutes and then out steps this guy. He stood up and stretched, and then cracked open a beer and took a big swig! Me and my buddy was sitting there thinking...., can you believe this! The next thing you know, he comes walking right up to the fire and starts warming himself front and back side. He then starts checking his phone and calling someone and having conversation and then hangs up. At this point in time, not a word has been said by none of us. I had a 357 magnum laid on our shooting bench right beside me. This guy after warming himself, looks over at me and my buddy and then finally speaks! He told us his name, and that he has been riding around for about an hour now looking for deer camps that had a camp fire burning. He said he likes to hang out by the fire and shoot the breeze with folks. Anyhow, long story short, he stayed about 1 hour and told us his entire life story! Then he got in his truck and left and we never saw him again. Pretty strange and the nerve of this guy! He must have thought we were on the beach or something getting ready to listen to Jimmy Buffet!

Well, one was a doe that had either tried to jump a gas line being built and got stuck in there, or she had hit the steel pipe on the other side and just fell back down in there.
It is hard to tell from the photo, but she is laying close enough to the pipe to have hit it and fallen back in the hole when she'd tried to jump it. One of the workers watching equipment the night before had said that he thought he heard something big hit the pipe that night, but he didn't see anything when he checked. He may have just missed her, or may have been totally mistaken. Who knows...

The other was this "thing" that my son and I found in a creek just laying on its side stuck against a log. It was made of plastic, and I assume it is a feeder, but had my son pose beside it to illustrate its size. I think a cattle feeder, but not sure. I am more unsure of what kind of a gully washer it took to wash it to where it was, FAR from any cow pastures.

This account is a little different in that I'm pretty sure that I, myself, was the "wierd thing" according to a still as of yet, unknown trespasser.

It was late April and I had managed to get free for a mid-week A.M. turkey hunt at our lease in Oglethorpe county. The conditions were perfect and I was greeted at the listening spot by thunderous gobbling on the river. I managed to get set up and had a great hunt watching the Boss strut on a limb over the river. Although I was unable to close the deal, it had been a great morning and I was pumped!

This is where things got interesting. I hoofed it back to camp maybe 3/4 mile and it had gotten warm. The layers that protected me from the cool morning air had become saturated with sweat. So I get back to camp and remove every stitch of clothing and crack a cool one to calm my nerves. Now this is not my normal mode of operation. Mind you it is mid week during turkey season in what is primarily a deer club. I thought It was pretty safe "cooling off", all things considered.

Well I get on the horn to a hunting buddy to report my exciting morning. I am into the story pretty good when I look up and a young twenty something female in a new yellow jeep comes rolling quickly through camp right past me. From what I could gather, she was probably a student from Athens looking for a Mtn. Bike trail or something because there was a bike on the back of the jeep. Anyway, we make eye contact about the time she's even with me and she stands on the breaks...throws it in reverse, cuts the wheels and rolls right towards me. She looks back and says "sorry, wrong road!", and spins the tires headed back out. I was in shock and I just stood there for a minute and pondered what had just happened.

Anyway, after my buddy stopped laughing, I got of the phone and put some shorts on. Pretty wierd. I get the feeling this might be how some of the Bigfeets stories get started. Oh well, I hope she's not scarred forever.

Have come across this several times bass fishing using a silent trolling motor. Come up on ladies with top off taking in the sun. When they become aware it is too late to put their top back on and they try to hide behind a set of hands, but their hands are too small.

It was my first time fishing on lake sinclair, I went with my brother and his buddy on one holiday night fishin. it was prolly 2a.m. or 3a.m. in the morning, we where heading toward the back of a cove with to 200 merc tapped out we stopped about 50 yards from the dock when we saw a teenage couple jump up with nothin but a pair of panties and boxers on. the funny park was they watched us for about 2 minutes with nothin but underwear on, before puttin a shirt on and waitin on us to leave.

The darnest thing I've seen while hunting was, rabbits of all colors and sizes. I was bowhunting in Morocco on a Naval Base at Sidi Yahia in 1962. Rabbits are all we had to hunt on base.

Spent a couple of hours readin all the posts and there are some great stories. There's a small section of woods near my house where I've found some old blankets, a walkie-talkie, and a bunch of household appliances (fridge, stove, washer) that ended up there when a tornado hit a while back. When Im out fishin on the Chattahoochee I do wish I could see the girls I went to high school with "put on a show!"

Almost forgot something. Quick info. on the woods: Its a small tract owned by two ladies who live up north. They don't mind people being there so people walk their dogs and kids just explore the woods. I was in a reall thick part and found a big tree with 13 tally marks cut into it. At the base of the tree is a water filled ditch. Kinda scary to think what may be in there.

i forgot the time i went coon huntin on our farm one night with my brother, the dogs cut out way across the property line following a creek. a hour later we finally caught up to the dogs, leashed them and start headin back. we found a fourwheeler trail and was walkin down it went all 3 of us caught the sent and stopped us dead in our tracks... pot. we looked left and right and saw a fresh cut trail with loggin tape markin it. we decided to get out of there quick.. a few months later i heard they poped the guys for it... i believe it was like 15 acres worth of plants. none of us ever turned anybody in but it was a weird feeling not knowin if anybody was watchin you or anything.

I was up in my stand overlooking a flat bottom & 4 hrs into a morning hunt when 2 hunters came by within 20 yards. The guy in back stopped walking and his buddy keep going. As he stood right in front of me, he dropped pants and took a crap....

I found two poachers trying to shoot my tom decoy about three weeks ago!
I found a pile of Sudafed boxes, some plastic sex toy boxes, and pornos in the woods near the road by my farm. My buddy and I found a pot plant on his land. Found hundreds of balloons over the years. About 20 years ago, my Grandaddy found a HUGE weather baloon in one of our fields one day. It must have been 100 feet long! On another buddy's property we caught some kids getting down in their truck a couple of times. His grandfather slammed a piece of tin on the top of their truck and yelled at them! They never came back! I heard a weird noise one morning while turkey hunting last year and I didnt know what it could be. All of a sudden a weird looking bird appeared. I new immediately that it was a ringneck pheasant, which is obviously very rare in my area. I shot it of course. It turned out that the farm next to us had a penned raised pheasant hunt the weekend before!

Passed on chance to go hunting with a buddy in douglas county a few years ago, he called me later that morning and explained how he found a dead man by the gate to his property! Said the dude was shot in the head. Yikes!

We bought a couple 100 acres behind our farm a couple of years ago. I was getting some patches ready on the new property when my tractor stalled on something big. I got out to investigate. It was a big old freezer buried in the ground! I new a dang body was going to be in it, but I dug it out with my loader anyway. It turned out to be full of old glass jars and beer cans. I also found a 40'x10' pipe down in the creek. It was an old tank someone cut the ends off of to make a road through the creek. Asked the old property owner and he said he had put it there about 40 years ago. It doesnt sound too weird, but you have to realize how thick and far back in the woods it was.

I went hunting with my friend in Miller County a couple of years ago. He is a Florida guy that owns land up there. We were pulling onto his road when we noticed an Explorer Sport that had blew a stop sign and slammed into a bunch of trees and a ditch. Blood was every where and the windshield was busted out. I called the law and began searching for the body that just flew through the windshield. The officers got there and took over. They never found out who it was or where they went. It was a stolen vehicle. I also pulled up an a Prius one time in a ditch with its roof collapsed. The two guys in the car were driving when a tree fell across the road. Both of them were staring at me with glazed over eyes. The impact had broken their necks. The motor was still running and the left wheel was still spinning full throttle.

I called the law and began searching for the body that just flew through the windshield. The officers got there and took over. They never found out who it was or where they went. It was a stolen vehicle. I also pulled up an a Prius one time in a ditch with its roof collapsed. The two guys in the car were driving when a tree fell across the road. Both of them were staring at me with glazed over eyes. The impact had broken their necks. The motor was still running and the left wheel was still spinning full throttle.

Geez...reminds me of the time I found a car in a ditch one night with the lights still on. The guy was knocked out, he still had a pulse. I called 911 and they talked me through a few things while the ambulance made its way out. There was a Vodka bottle laying on the floor and a pile of clothes in the back seat...looked like he had been living in his car or something. Ambulance got there and took over..I read in the paper the next day that he died that night in hospital.

while coon hunting ran across an airplane turned upside down in the middle of a road. We were the first on the scene and had to drive about 4 miles to the nearest phone ( no cell phones in those days.) He tried to make an emergency landing and his landing gear caught on a power line crossing the road. It was pretty gruesome. We used our dog box to prop up the wing so they could use the jaws of life to extract the pilot. I went to school with 2 of the pilots brothers and one of the EMTs at the scene was also the pilots brother. The pilot died shortly after being removed

Many years ago, it was common practice to hunt along the sides of roadways in our area. Lots of us built deer stands in trees along the sides of roads just off the rite-of-way. This roadway was finally paved back around 1968 and it was a 3-mile roadway known as Camp Daniel Marshall Road in the southern end of Lincoln County. It dead-ended into Clark's Hill Lake at Camp Daniel Marshall which was a Baptist Camp Retreat for the Southern Baptist Convention of Georgia. I am sure that a lot of you in the surrounding area know this roadway is located off of Double Branches Road very near to the Bussey Point WMA.

We all knew who built each particular stand and respected each other by not using other people's stands each year. Well, on one hunting trip, I was settled into my stand while it was still dark and just before daylight was approaching, a slow moving car came along and let a guy out. The car then continued on down the road. This guy slowly walked over to the base of the tree that I was in and proceeded to rake back some leaves, brush, etc and then pulled out a couple of jugs that were obviously filled with "moonshine". The car then came back up the road and he got in and they drove away. I never made a sound and he never knew that I was sitting about 20 feet up above him at the time. In those days, it was also common knowledge that a certain large land-owner had a couple of liquor stills in that area and that he had some of his tenants operate them for him. Actually, this man was a very respected "southern gentleman" of our community and he ran this type of operation for probably 30-40 years or so according to my Father.

I rode down this road several months ago and I still remembered which trees that I had built the stands long ago. I actually saw some of the original boards that were used in one of my stands back about 40 years ago. I used treated wood even back then and I could still see some remnants of the original 2 X 2's and also 2 X 4's that I had used back then.

I should tell you that the reason that this tree is still standing is because of me and the dastardly thing that I did back in those days. I was young and dumb and I actually made the steps by using the biggest nails/spikes that was available back then. I nailed them with a 3-lb hammer on the back side of the tree back then. The timber was cut on this property many years ago but because of these big metal spikes, the cutting crew did not risk cutting it. I learned my lesson back then and have never used spikes again like that. Trust me, my Father found out about it and he was NOT a happy camper either.

A few years back I was hunting on Dixie Creek WMA, I had several does and a nice buck come blasting up the road about 50 yards from me. A few minutes later a hunter came stalking up that same road. He was quiet as he could be, if I hadn't spotted him, I never would have known he was there. He suddenly stopped, threw down his bow, and pulled out his phone. I then listened as he screamed into his phone for five minutes about business, and about he couldn't even enjoy his one week off because all of the people who worked for him were freaking idiots. After he finished berating them, he picked up his bow and continued on his very quiet stalk. He seemed kinda angry when I started laughing.

NoI'm going about 40mph and hauling a boat so there ain't no stopping real quick. She crossed the road and was heading for the toll booth last I saw her. I'm sure she wasn't out jogging for her health.

Another time I was heading out to my hunt club just west of Chapel Hill, NC. I was on I-40 heading west. Again O dark thirty. There in the hammer lane was a 8ft wooden step ladder. I pull over and back up and throw it in the truck. It was brand new. Still had labels and straps wrapped around it. Still have it.

Was hunting my club up in NC one time. I had a stand that was about 10' past the fence that borders I-40. It was just getting daylight. The prime time to see deer move and a Highway patrol officer pulled over a car directly behind me. Lights flashing. Not sure what the problem was but ther were there for 40 minutes. Never saw a deer that morning...... Course the HP guy didn't see me sitting in a tree with a gun either.

In the woods I've found old bottles and arrowheads.


Oh yeah. I know you guys don't have them in GA. But we do in FL.

YUP.... Took the airboat out in the marsh, set up a climber and waited for sunlight.. Saw something brown headed in my direction, so I put the camera away and started to draw the bow.. Saw a tan/brown panther.. Tail hanging to the ground.. Never said a word for 2 years until others started talking about a brown panther in the "Tomato Ditches" where everyone runs airboats.. Thank goodness that I was not going crazy !!!

Found top piece of a two man climbing stand 30ft up a pine tree. Guess he dropped bottom part and shemmed down.

Parts of a plane where it had crashed a long time ago, last year went back and pointed out a wing piece to my daughter most of it had been covered with pine straw and leaves.

Had a hog dog find a fresh killed dawn deer in the woods covered in palmettos it looked so fake not a hair out of place

We used to hunt in Gwinnett County behind Hog Mtn. THere are about 50 or 60 old Creek Indian graves on a ridge where we used to hunt. Pretty cool!

I was walking along the edge of a field to my stand early one morning a few years ago, there was a hard frost on the ground; the kind where the grass crunches when you walk. I saw some substance deep in the grass faintly glowing, like lighting bugs. It looked like moss. I thought I was seeing things for a long time, but have later found out that there really are some forms of moss that glows, but at the time it was freaky!

Found a wallet one morning while rabbit hunting. It had several hundred dollars worth of concert tickets inside and the concert was playing that evening. Called the owner of the wallet and he could not believe it. He had lost it a couple weeks earlier and had no idea where. He was so excited to get it back.

Found 4 Polaroid pictures of a nude woman posing. Pics were wedged in the fork of a tree.

Another time while rabbit hunting, I came into an area and could hear a high pitched beeping sound. Took me quite a while to pinpoint the source of it. As I moved leaves and dirt away, I found a pager. I called the numbers on it but nobody would tell me who owned it.

You know it's a good thread when it's 7 years old and going strong. I don't remember ever commenting on this, and I don't have time to check right now. But, in addition to plenty of the more common things listed here, I do have one thing yet to be mentioned. A while back, I was hunting a food plot. I was in the middle of nowhere, miles from the nearest ungated road. So, there's no possible way I could be walked or driven in on. However, a helicopter from the distance kept getting closer and closer to me. He flew past me and turned around. He lowered his altitude to the point I thought it was quite odd. He gets closer and closer, then LANDS in the food plot. He jumps out, takes a leak, then takes off again. Just my luck.

A few years ago I am hunting in the early morning. I get to my stand in the dark and set up. As dawn breaks I can see a piece of a orange tape or old vest on the ground about 50 yards away. I think it strange and resolve to go pick it up after I hunt. About 30 minutes later the piece of orange"gets up" and it was a poacher laying on the ground in orange camo?!? Good thing I didn't shoot but I whistle to him as he he left. Idiot.

I was on my way back to my truck from hunting one day and came upon a tomb stone. In the middle of the woods! pretty far away from any houses. It was a fairly new looking stone (marble) it had a man and girls names on it I assume his daughter, they died one day apart. I don't know how it got there marble is very heavy, no way to get a truck in there. I know it freaked me out when i walked upon it
