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.

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
