    Big stands of weed....several times. You can usually smell it long before you find it.

    that would have been a bad day

    Wow I just read ALL 35 and a half pages.
    Cool stuff for sure.
    The only cool thing I really ever found was this foot print 187 air miles in the Alaskan wilderness.

    Every morning when you wake up thank God for everything in your life and when you lay your head down at night you will find you need not ask him for anything again.

I poked around as much as I could then marked it on my garmin and made it out well after dark. Here's the funny thing... For some reason the waypoint never showed up on my gps This was two years ago and I have since become obsessed with finding it again. I asked all the locals and nobody knows anything about it. I called Plum-Creek (the owner) and nobody knew. I have been out many a time trying to find it with no luck. It can't be more than a mile from the road. Some day they will log-out the land and find it
    You should use bing maps and then do birds eye, if the satellite has taken those pics it'll be there. Pm of you find it....curious.

    I have found all kinds of stuff, mostly junk

    but, the coolest was a an axe blade next to a 6 foot diameter shag bark hickory tree, I was in awe of such a big hickory tree, decided to sit down next to the giant to admire and found it

    Also found 2 $100 bills frozen on the ice on the saginaw river! that was cool!

After quite awhile the guy is finally up must can't stay still and keeps making a racket. Frustrated as hell, my buddy finally gives up and climbs down to get away from the guy and hunt elsewhere. As he passes the guy he heres noise. My buddy approached him and then just started to laugh. The guy had a big blue and white cooler up there and about a 2 foot long radio playing music! My buddy laughed out loud and took the guys picture. I wish I had a copy to post cause it is the most ridiculous thing you ever saw.
    Lol... I laughed so hard!

    the most scary thing i found was a confederate soldier and his wife's grave site a couple miles back into a national forest here in louisiana at the butt crack of dawn! i took pictures with my phone as soon as it got light enough to see well and then got out of there.

    when i squirrel hunt public land i like to get to the woods about 30 to 45 minutes before daylight. what i do then is pick a direction on my compass and walk briskly until it gets light enough to hunt. i like doing this because i have no clue where i am when i stop which gives me a sense of adventure and it normally yields unpressured squirrels. on this particular morning i decided to see if i could find a stand of hardwoods i spotted on a map about 1.5 miles off a forest service road in a area of the forest that i have never hunted. so like normal when i arrived in the morning i marked my truck on the gps, picked up my compass and took off walking 45 minutes before daylight... about 30 minutes into my walk i had just enough light to make out sticks and leaves on the ground. i wasn't where i wanted to be yet so i started walking faster. not more than 4 minutes into my brisk walk i am about to crest a hill that i decided would be the starting point for my hunt, and when go to put my foot down, a dark squiggly line on the forest floor beneath my right foot causes me to involuntarily to jump straight back. F***ing Snake! i promptly blew its head off for having the nerve to lay in my path.


    after taking a few moments to settle down i continued up to the hillcrest. just before i got to the top i notice a grey and unnatural shape in the near dark distance. as my eyes focus i make out what the copperhead was laying watch over!

    now i am really spooked!. i am over a mile in the back of nowhere in murderous (true), inbred, hillbilly, redneck, can't accept the fact that this is forest service land not your family's anymore land. i almost got bit by a poisonous snake, and now looking at someone out there's great great grandpappy's grave! not to be too cliche, but i did have the sound of banjo's streaming through my head. i knew that people knew where the site was because the fence wasn't of the civil war era to say the least, there was a not too old confederate flag stuck next to the tombstone of the soldier, and the third tombstone was from the 70's or 80's.....

    beside old demcy lay his wife who was deceased years before him



    after taking the photos, i said a quick prayer for my safety and took off walking back towards the truck. i resumed my hunt once i was insight of the road i drove in on.... for some reason i didn't mark the site on my gps. this all happened 3 years ago and i tried to find the grave a couple of times last year but i have been unsuccessful.
    Would this happen to be around Goldonna, la in the Winn ranger district????

    You could loose may things in that vast wilderness and never find it again... That salmon river and surrounding mountains speak to my soul...perhaps my favorite place on earth... cool story...Stan Potts!!!

    I've found unexploded bombs way back in the woods. It used to be an artillery range back during the big one. I was going to carry one out about a mile but it was heavy. Good idea huh. They've since swept the area and put out signs to not touch them and report any.
