I saw this on another forum and wanted to see what my THF boys have found while hunting. I found an arrowhead many years ago around Encinal while bow hunting. I was sitting behind some cactus and happened to look over and saw a pointy thing sticking out of the ground. Reached over and picked it up and it was an arrowhead. What about you?

My brother and I were walking once while hunting and saw a metal pipe-looking object sticking barely out of the ground. He reached over and messed with it and I pushed him back about the time the cyanide went off. It was to kill coyotes by shooting the cyanide into their mouths when activated. It had to have been there since Moby Dick was a minnow, at least 10 years and probably longer.

I found my one and only first arrow head last year! I've been looking for years and that's the first I've ever found.

In the past I found an old cast iron toy motor cycle and a bottle with a round bottom ( I mean round as in you can't set it down like a coke bottle, you have to lay it down).

I found MY camo wallet once that I had lost on a morning hunt, miracle!

An arrow that I had lost from the year before on a hog. The broadhead was still good but the fletching and shaft and nock was all chewed up.

I found a civil war grave once, a rock with a perfect hole in it, and an old abandoned whiskey steel.

I'll post up photos later of the civil war grave to see if anyone that does that kind of thing can track some family members so they will know. It was out in between Putnam and Moran.

I once got in my stand in the morning and shined my flashlight around the stand to look for the bird that lives in there, and I noticed a piece of paper stuck to the wall. I got closer and it read...."Thanks boys for the hunt last weekend. I appreciate the buck I got, boy was it nice!" I was furious when I read that because our land is right next to a road and we have been worried about people seeing our stands and knowing we're out of towners and hunting when we aren't there. For the next few days to a week we called around our uncles and people we knew in the area to see if one of them would fess up to the note and none of them knew anything about it. We were pissed and didn't know what to do.....Come to find out a week later at our uncle's deer camp, it was his buddy who lives down the road and drove by and left the note in our stand!!! HAHA. We had to laugh when we found this out because the guy is a funny bastard and he got us!!!

The first year I was on a new lease I kept seeing a shiny object hanging from a tree. After the hunt I went and looked and there was a trotline hanging between two trees. I guess the people had been "turkey lining" before we got the lease.

Opening weekend of my first evening hunt in Telegraph Texas I was up in my blind and was looking at my feeder when I saw something moving behind it. It was orange/red. I thought maybe one of the guys in camp was trying to pull some sort of prank on the camp newbie. I finally decided to get out of my stand, grabbed my shotgun (was waiting for Turkeys) and went to check out what was behind my feeder. I went around the back of the pin oaks and a family of Hispanics was standing back there shocked. They did not speak any English. I finally got them to move off. To this day I still think about what could have happenned had something wandered into the feeder and I pulled the trigger.

Holy cow! That is a scary thought. Illegal or not accidentally shooting someone is horrible. Hopefully they didn't run into one of them shoot first check second hunters.

I was looking for a bow set up when I came across an old one room shed but looked like an old home because I could see and old water pump and it had windows like a home would have and a roof like a house would have it was strange looking but me and my friend wanted a better look so we got close and had to really push through some thick vines and bushes, as we got close I look up and see a black shadow leave the house and I yell oh crap and my friend looks to see it come across the top of this house and I yell again oh crap and we began to run through that thick brush getting cut up by thorns trying to get out and as we get far enough we see itís a big ol vulture and its just sitting on the roof staring at us and then flys away we then work up the courage to go back into the hose and its filled with toilet lids and teeth or some type of animal it was the weirdest thing I had ever seen

So many unusual things, where should I start?

Meth lab, 2 fields of weed, both in NE Texas. South Texas 20 miles from the border: lots of arrowheads, many mexican pesos while looking for arrowheads, 5 bales of weed (40 pounds each) wrapped in burlap(hidden before BP caught them), duffel bag of cocaine(50 pounds), lots of stolen and wrecked out vehicles used for hauling illegals, and old lever action rifle, wood rotted off, grown into a mesquite tree, and what was left of two dead illegals after the hogs and coyotes finished their work. A metal arrowhead(1800's) and some really old .45 ammo from around the ruins of an old stagecoach station.

Was hunting with a buddy one time and he came across and OLD rusted up shotgun leaned against a tree, looked like it had been there for years.

During opening weekend of muzzle loader we went to fill a feeder when i noticed a window open on a blind that wasnt open the day before...

opened the blind and found- camo face mask, scent waffers, grunt calls & a empty .243 casing...poacher got in the stand and I think he heard us comming up the road and lit out.

The stand is over 1.5miles from the nearest access point.

Found my hunting watch that I lost the season prior..While walking to my stand on an evening hunt last season I looked down and noticed it laying on the ground covered in mud.. cleaned it off and it was still keeping the exact time. Had been laying there an entire year..
