    CW stuff

    Since I hunt near the Antietam Battlefield often, and in Western MD both armies crossed constantly, I have found buttons, minie balls, knapsack hardware, tin cups, grommets off of ground cloths and a buddy even found 3 muskets staked per regs near an old stone fence in Williamsport- seems the Rebs that were issued those were captured in a swoop by Federal Cav, and never got to thier weapons.

    Was hunting once near Mt Aetna and found the old cannon works that made cannon for the Continental Army and the Maryland Navy during the Revolutionary war- found cannon balls and even one tube (cannon barrel) that the neighbor uses for a lightpost now.

    I think they drop a lot of them out over the Pacific and they ride the wind over the coast and into WA and OR.

    Thumbs up Touchy one..........

    I have to be careful how I word this so as to not get it deleted by the mods.......

    I was bow hunting out in western MA about 10 years ago- it was a really warm week, something like 65-70 degrees for about 4 straight days. Whitetail season had opened about a week before & my old college buddy invited me out to his parent's property in "The Hill towns" (Otis, Russell & Blandford). He told me that nobody had been hunting this property for a few years but there were a few natural funnels that received lots of early season traffic. He was right.

    He pointed in in the direction of the overgrown logging road and told me to take it about 1/2 mile until I hit the steep incline. He said I could go left or right as either direction would bring be to a natural bottleneck in the grade.
    I'm glad I went right. I took a right and went about 200 yards- found a nice little, sunny opening with a few good trees to get my climber into. There was sign ALL over the place- scat, footprints, old rubs.... I made sure to be very quiet. Up I went, settled in and got myself situated. It was about 2:00pm at this point- the plan was to hunt until nightfall and walk back to where my buddy sent me on my way.

    About an hour after I got settled down, I thought I heard voices, soft voices.... then nothing. About 15 minutes later, I could have sworn I heard a soft giggle- then another one. I'm starting to wig out a little- not being able to see jack after about 20 yards to my left, right & behind me. I could see about 40 yards in front on me in the direction of the grassy clearing. All the leaves were still on the trees- it was still thick. About 20 minutes later, I catch movement- it's two women, I'd guess about 20 years old or so- holding hands & one of them is carrying a blanket under her arm! Mind you- I'm out in the middle of nowhere, on land that I'm not familiar with and these two come frolicking in from some little path off the back right of the clearing that I'm looking at.

    I decided to just sit back and let things unfold........ first the blanket gets put down, next they transition to their birthday suits and begin enjoying each other's company! I thought for sure that this was quite the hunting trip. I was still trying to figure out how the heck these girls made it so far into the woods! This is where I decided to have some fun- as one of the girls was just about to hit the "end of her rope", I let out a doe bleat. They both stopped & started looking around. After about 5 minutes, they settled down & continued their interlude....... this time, I let out one soft grunt. They FREAKED OUT!! They both jumped up, threw on their pants & shoes and took off in the direction they came (topless, mind you). They were putting on their tops as they scadaddled away at Mach 1. I really couldn't believe what had just transpired, so I sat there in disbelief- knowing that my buddy would NEVER believe me.

    The rest of the afternoon was uneventful in comparison- I saw a doe & 2 fawns about 2 hours later- but I had no anterless tags, so they were safe. When nightfall came, I got down, packed up and walked out to the clearing to the spot where the rug munchers had settled down. There it was- my proof! It seemed as though in their haste to vacant the big bad woods, one of the girls left her Smith College panties in the grass!

    By the time I got to my buddy, he asked if I saw anything- I told him the whole story & like I predicted, he called BS. Then I pulled the panties out of my jacket pocket- his jaw dropped. He then asked if I had my camera with me. I told him no but that my rangefinder worked just fine!

    Wow, you must've been like 7 or 8 years old. I'd be sad if I lost my teddy bear too.

    Over the years I've found a wide range of items. I've found items you would think of finding. A great 3 inch folding knife with an eagle with the stars and stripes on it. Found a folding saw to keep in the back pack for tree stand pruning. And the most unusual thing I found, close to the appalachian trail, 2 bags of pot.
    The best was finding 2 balloons at different times from school kids that let them go at a school function. Both had notes in them to write back and give the story of where they were found. One was from Arkansas and the other was from Missiouri. Both traveled thousands of miles. I wrote back to the classes that sent them and hoped they enjoyed the letters

    I found a nice expensive Climber and a glens deer handle on the property we hunt. It was in a section that we have designated as the sanctuary so the deer aren’t pressured in an area on our property.

    I put a note on the tree and told them they could buy the tree stand back on www.ebay.com and left an item number for a NO TRESPASSING SIGN. So, I gave the tree stand to a hunting buddy that just started out bow hunting.

    I never find anything cool, but I like this thread!!! I had someone find something of mine once that I lost while hunting. I apparantly dropped my wallet in the dry river bed while getting ready to hunt, get a phone call later that day and this guy says he found it...never even knew I lost it at that point!!! There are some good people left in the world!! '94

    I've found a lot of stuff, but the one thing I remember really well happened about six years ago. I found a new military grade ballistic helmet. I gave it to one of my buddies that was in the army. He said it was one of the newer kinds and had no idea where it could have came from. I thought maybe it fell out of a chopper or plane. It was pretty far off the beaten path. Maybe a Militia?

    I found a Summit climber. Someone must have snuck on my property and forgot where they left it. I left a note where I found it so they could come and claim it. Funny that was two years ago and no one has come.

    If you don't mind me asking, when and where did you find that buck? I spent the better part of two days helping my Uncle look for a deer he shot, gutted and tagged, then figured he'd go get some help to drag it out, so he wrapped his vest around it(he was still wearing an orange hat). We were hunting in Sleeping Bear Dunes Natl Park, just south of Glen Lake, probably 6-7 years ago now...
