Weird Finds?

Discussion in 'Hunting Lounge' started by Desert Rat, Jan 2, 2007.

  1. What are some of the weird things you've found while out hunting?

    Yesterday I found a skydiver's helmet. Laying inside was some kind of altimeter thingy...
     
  2. Most of the areas I hunt just happen to be in the flyway between Davis Monthan AFB, and the Dry lake in Willcox where they practiced bombing and strafing. So I happen upon strings of .50 ammo pretty regularly. They would jettison whatever they did not shoot on the way back to DM. Largest belt I ever found had about 30 rounds in it. I have also found 2 sets of spurs, and several other pieces of tack. Several old bullets including soem real old 45-70 government with US Calvary etched into the casing with a knife. Dont know if it was authentic but was neat.

  8. I wasnt actually hunting, but found a dead woman when I was 16. A friend of mine found 4 duffle bags full of weed.
    I also found a matate but I was 3 miles from the truck and wasnt about to carry it back.

    Just got back from a mtn lion hunt. Didn't see any cats, but I found a real mother-of-pearl button at an old mine and a cool cow skull.

  10. I have found some good stuff over the years.

    1. Arrowheads & metate's/mano's - lots of these. When I am hunting and find chippings or pot shards animals go free for 30 mins while I look around.
    2. 5th wheel hitch
    3. Bogan pistol grip for tripod, cost me $12 to get adapter plate and thread reducer so I could put it to use.
    4. All kinds of crap from illiegals - clothes, sleeping bags, food, water and trash.
    5. Heads, sheds and lots and lots of bones.
    6. Junk bino's - don't know if the guy lost them or chucked them - believe I would have chucked them.

    And the very best find of all was a Winchester Model 92 .25-20 Trappers carbine in an old cabin on the Wind River Indian Reservation back in 67 or 68 with my Dad. I still have it.
