How many of you have ever lost something that was important to you? Whether it be while scouting, hunting, or just simply walking in the woods. Releases, quivers, knives, etc.

Just this year I lost my favorite jacket and two judo point arrows out of my quiver. I think I don't get them back in there quite right. Really irritating, and impossible to find.

I lost a rangefinder once, I put it on top of my Jeep Wrangler and forgot about it, then drove off, never did find it.

First year out bowhunting in some REALLY heavy Missouri thickets, I ended up getting my gloves (along with other clothes) torn up pretty good.
Amongst the fighting with the thorns and thickets pushing myself thru then, I got my wedding band stripped from my finger and didn't notice till we got back to the trucks.
Only reason I noticed then was a hunting buddy pointed out how bad my hand was cut up......

how about a bushnell range finder. I went out smoke pole hunting and ranged a few yardages, passed a chip shot at a spike, and that was the last time I saw it. sucks too, because I had all the time in the world to use it last season, and I didn't have it...missed three does because of range estimation errors too.

The only thing I lost that I really miss hunting with was my father a few years ago from cancer. Anyone who has gone through this knows what I mean.

Sorry to hear that. I know how that feels.

I sometimes think I've lost my mind for hunting so much and putting so much effort into it with no results to show for it. Then I see a nice buck or a kill a deer...then I realize why I work so hard at it.:wink:

I have lost keys, knives, and binos. I found the binos about 3 weeks later and full of water i took them apart and cleaned them out good and still works good to this day. Never had a rangefinder but if i do i think ill tie it onto me

Lost a nice gore-tex hat, priming flask for my flintlock, pair of binoculars (turned up later), most of my sanity (that's not really due to hunting; usually it's due to lack of hunting).

I've got one treestand I call "Klepto Stand" because evey time I go hunt that stand I always end up loosing something. One time it was a part of my safety harness, another time it was my Gerber limb saw, and another time it was a flashlight.
