Default Funny public land discoveries

Thinking back to when I was in my late teens early twenties I had a buddy who had a golden spot in the National forest way back in there. We were young and stupid so his idea to try to keep people out of that area was he hung abunch of dolls on the trees in that area to make it look creepy lol thinking back on it of course it was stupid but funny. Whatís the weirdest thing youíve come across on public land?

Once I ran across a mattress and a bunch of condemns on the ground. I chose to hunt another area after stumbling across that.

One morning just after daylight in the fog walking out from a duck hunt I came a cross a dilapidated shack and on the back side was painted the red smiley face from Red John, I’m 54 and been in the woods all my life and can count on one hand the things that have unnerved me, that’s one of them.

Back in the mid 1970s my high school buddies and I would go shooting/hunting on the old WWII Camp Gruber in NE Oklahoma. At the time it was around 75 square miles and big areas of it was unused until the national guard took it over and started keeping people out. We hiked in maybe 10 miles over rough country and set up camp. In a creek bottom we found a vintage Harley Davidson - probably from the 1940’s - just sitting there still on the kickstand like somebody just parked it and walked off. It had been sitting there so long a 10 foot tree had grown up through the frame. Always wondered what the story was

Not really that weird but this past weekend I came across the second tree stand in the area I’ve decided to hunt. It has been there so long that the bark on the tree is starting to grow over the strapping material used to keep it in place. About 50 yards from there in a creek bottom I found a large 10 point skull that had decomposed poorly in the creek. I have been wondering if the hunter got the deer and was the given the dilemma of taking the deer or the stand and decided on the deer, taking only what he could or wanted to carry.

Last year I was driving in on a back road early one morning 4am or so well after deciding to hunt a different spot I decided to turn around on an old drive not a vehicle around for couple of miles. As I pulled into the old drive kind of quickly. There was a guy not 20 yds from the front of my truck with his pants around his knees he started to try and run deeper in the woods but couldn’t move very quickly with his pants down the way they were. I’m not sure who was more shocked me or him. I guess his buddy or someone had dropped him off. I’m sure neither of us will ever forget that .

I came across a little yellow forest service sign nailed to a tree in Colorado when I was taking shelter In a clump of aspen and pines in the middle of a huge meadow during a September storm. It said something line a livestock trail or a highway.

I thought I heard a faint bell ringing during the downpour. It got louder and louder until the lead sheep appeared ahead of a herd of several hundred. There were shepherds on horseback along with pack animals and their border collies. It was quite a show. Passes within yards of me without ever seeing me. Didnít see any elk afterwards.

Coon hunting in Michigan, and posted around the boarder were flyers about a school teacher that had gone missing a while back. Way back in the swanp i stumbled on what looked like a tarp over a coffin. Freaked me out. Second look it was an instrument case to a tuba or bass. Gave it a quick kick to make sure it wasnt full of anything and carried on.

My dad and I came across a flipped over 1942 pickup in the woods at night and when got out our flashlights to look inside the first thing we saw was a dishwashing plastic glove that was yellowish orange. Thought it was a hand and we both took off running.

And mountain lions they always scare me.

Found a plane fuselage in a wilderness area in colorado. Never got closer than 100 yards or so looked like it went down several years prior and it was in a real sketchy spot to get to and back out.
Reported it to the sheriff's office, they had no record of it, never heard anything more.
Buddies brother is convinced the plane was full of drug money and we missed the chance to get rich.

I found a large meth lab on the National Grasslands. Looked like it had been used for a longtime.

Back in the early 80's I was cruising a small tract of timber on private land and came across what looked like two graves in a thicket. At the back of the tract I found a leather bag with someone's school books and ID. I called the Harris County Sheriff's Office to report it and they never showed up.

was hunting on lake Grapevine and walked up on a homeless colony that was currently occupied. It was dark since I was traveling to the blind and they thought it was a drug raid or something so kind of crazy for a bit. I kept on walking, at a faster pace, found my tree and started climbing. My heart was racing faster than any deer I had a chance at seeing. Good times.

Back in the 70's when you could hunt paper co land without a permit I had spent several days making me a makeshift blind behind a fallen tree. Brought in some fallen limbs and stuff and made it look pretty good. It overlooked a creek that was covered up with deer tracks. I had been driving into the trail head/camp, however opening morning it had been raining pretty hard so I decided to walk in with a buddy since it was dark. As I walked the trail I usually would drive I stepped on something and it moved then screamed bloody murder. Scared the crap out of me and him. Some guy had just laid is sleeping bag down in the middle of the road and me and my buddy stepped right on top of him. It was funny afterward. I still think though if it hadn't been raining I might have run over him if I didn't see him in the head lights.

Years ago I was trailing a wounded deer way back in a big thicket and across a deep creek. I came upon a small clearing that had been recently cut. At the back of the clearing was a stage maybe 15 ft wide and 30 ft long. Built solid on cinder blocks and ply wood floor. The stage had a frame on It that looked like it once had a cutain. The center of the stage was covered in dried blood.

All that material had to be carried in there by hand. I saw their trail and walked it back to where they crossed that steep creek. It was a full mile to the nearest road in that direction. Remnants of several camp fires around the stage. Couldn't have been more than a couple days old. I we t back in there a couple years later and it was still there and the clearing was grown up like it hadn't been used again. No clue

I "found" a body but didn't realize it at the time. Smelled something dead by the gate. Didn't smell like anything dead I had smelled before. I figured it was just road kill and went hunting. Couple days later an old man metal detecting found a hooker's body wrapped in trash bags in the ditch by the gate...

Early 2000's were camped on top of Mt. Yonah in North Georgia on a rock climbing trip. It was getting late and we were getting tipsy. We kept hearing noises in the woods all around camp. The noises got more and more surreal, then low growls and howls circling us. None of us had the jewels to leave the fire to investigate and we circled the wagons scared as all get up. All of the sudden all hell broke loose and a group of Army Rangers in full kit and NV's broke out of the woods and into our camp. Scared the living crap out of us. They got a good laugh out of it. Once we cleaned out our shorts we sat down for a few minutes with them and shared some food. Awesome group of guys. They did ask that we not report seeing them as it could get them in trouble as part of the patrol was not to be seen. They just couldn't resist the temptation of messing with us out there. Not really a find but a cool public land thing.

I went on a ride in elk hunting trip in Montana in 2012. Rode horses 22 miles into the mountains bordering Yellowstone. Was way up on a hillside and sat down to class and the little tree I leaned up against had a small jar with a little metal handle on it and was the limb had grown through the handle. No telling how long it had been there and just odd that so far back in the woods, I would sit down next to that tree. I wish I would have gotten a picture. Here is a pic for reference on how far back there we were.

Took a buddy of mine duck hunting one time and he didnt own any waders. Couldnt afford a pair at the time. Luck would have it in the bank of the lake in the sand we saw a boot sticking up out of it. Dug it up and it was nice pair of waders with no holes/leaks! Boot size fit him perfect also.

I've shared this story a few times. This is 100% true.

Back about 12 years or so when I was going to A&M, I was scouting the Sam Houston Forest in August. I had parked at a locked gate and walked in about a mile or so on the road, but by this point the road was basically a narrow trail. Well, I stumbled upon a cooler sitting right in the middle of the road/trail. Medium sized Coleman cooler. There were no tire tracks or boot tracks on the entire walk in. As far as I knew I was all alone.

Well, I'm caught by surprise by this cooler. I stop and think about what the heck this cooler is doing out here 1+ mile from the main road with no sign of anyone around. Body parts from a mutilated body seemed the most likely option at this moment. I actually hollered out loud if anyone was around. No answer. I walk right up to the cooler and inspect it without opening it. I see no traces of blood on the outside, so that put me at ease a bit. But this cooler looks fresh, like it hasn't been there long. I then holler out again, this time even louder. Still no answer.

Finally, I cant stand it anymore, I have to open it and see what's inside. So I open the lid, and lo and behold, I chit you not, there is iced down Miller Lite inside the cooler! Probably about a 12 pack or so. It was hot, and I was sweating. So i grabbed a few beers and went on my way. I hollered out loud 1 last time "I grabbed a few of your beers, thanks!" Still no response.

But then I got to thinking....what if this was bait? Am I being hunted? Is that banjos I hear off in the distance? I hit the brush and made my way back to the truck a different way.

I still have no idea how a cooler loaded down with ice and beer made it that far back in with no trace of another person. So I decided there was only 1 logical conclusion: That was Bigfoot's cooler full of beer, and he likes Miller Lite!

Whatís the weirdest thing youíve come across on public land?
Was this any where near lake Conroe? I remember walking in and seeing a bunch of dolls hanging and I got the hell out of dodge.

Putting this cover story in the hopper in case my dna is ever found on a dead prostitute. "I was just hunting nearby officer, I swear."

I was scouting some property and I was a long way from any roads. Came upon an old township with a historical marker. Old, old buildings with grownup bushes and trees in the buildings. No roads, got no idea how the sign got there. I think it was called Belgrade or New Belgrade, something along that line. Pretty cool.

The best one i have is me and my grandad was fishing the grasslands by Decatur just pond hopping I think we were going to clear lake. In my quite little Toyota rolled up on a guy and girl getting it on in the bed of the truck. They had no clue we was there tell I had to shift gear. And seeing my 80 year old grandad laughing was the best thing!
