    In the mid 80s while bow hunting elk on Emerald Mtn. near Steamboat Springs I was slipping though a lodgepole pine thicket and literally stepped on a model 721 Remington in 30 06. I took it over to the rancher's house and he knew exactly who it belonged to. It has been lost 10 to 15 years earlier while horseback hunting. The guy had his rifle scabbard facing backwards and the lodgepoles obviously drug it out. They looked for days and never did find it. It was rusted shut but the guy finally got his rifle.

    It had instructions to mail the transmitter back in an plastic envelope that was inside the transmitter.

    This past deer season I found a cut-in-half 50 gallon drum where some guys had been burning insulation off of copper for the black market. They must have been in there alot b/c I didn't see too much deer activity on that farm this year. Last year it was common to see around 10 deer per day. This past spring I found a cell phone during a 3D shoot. Turns out it had naked girly pictures on it. We called a number titled "Dad" on it and he said his daughter had lost her phone. She lives about 50 miles from where I found it.

    I can tell you I've lost a heck of a lot more than I've found. I found an arrow with an old rohthar(sp) broadhead, a foothold trap in a tree about 3' in the air, an old car with plastic shopping bags in it like someone was living in the car. A 5 point shed, and a fox's skull. A few pot plants, and a kitchen plate. I know I'm forgetting somestuff but this is what comes to mind.

    This is definately a great thread.

    I caught it, I just didn't think it was true, almost like it's too much of a coincidence to be true. If it is then someone should be talking to someone. What are the chances?? It's a small world and it's getting smaller all the time.

    This used to be a big bootlegging area

    and I have found several stills that the revenooers(sp) had chopped up. I have found backpacks, clothing, flashlights, knives, and an old USMC machete that had the tree grown completely around it. Several years later I found the wind had snapped the tree off at the machete and I got it out and still have it.

    Native arrowhead.

    Found an arrowhead while checking a waterhole for elk tracks. As I looked around I found an old ground blind a modern archer had built on the waterhole. Also found an arrowhead while sneaking up to a pond to shoot some ducks. Got my first ever triple that day. Three big greenheads. Found some sheds, as well as a dead deer. Found lots of expended bullets on the Barry Goldwater range including a couple of sidewinder missles. This fall I found a dead buck that had been shot through both back legs. The hunters had started to butcher him but then took the head and left the rest including their Kershaw interchangable blade knife. They never did come back for the deer so I have the knife. *******s.

    Well, I think I read all the posts and no one has found what I did. Found two five gallon buckets of pot buried under a rockhouse with a piece of metal on top of the buckets and covered with dirt. They even had pics of the pot as it had progressed through the year.

    I once found a sweet folding stool that was so light and compact that it had to be designed for mountaineering. I used it and carried it for years in my backpack and one year it finally broke...so I figured I was even.

    I found an old blackpowder sticking out of the mud in a pond. Turns out a guy a know had drew down on a buck and the gun miss fired. It wasn't the first time and he got mad and threw it into the pond. I have a friend that found a dead body stuffed into an old chimney, I think it ended up that it had been a drug deal gone bad.
