I took the afternoon to check out a few prospective spots for next year. Found a few remnants of the EHD from last year and basically was a standard outing. Switched a few camera cards and didn't find much for mature deer. On my way into one spot, I saw something that caught my eye. In the crotch of a tree I saw what looked like the butt of a gunstock. Sure enough, this is what I found. Looks to have been there for a long time as it has the barrel fully enveloped by the tree and the stock is cracking due to the pressures on it. Not sure what caliber it is, but it's bigger than a .22. Kindof a somber sight. A guys gotta wonder why it was ever left.
