Found a broken off knife blade stuck in a tree one time. I've found deer antlers a couple times as well.

I have some land in Southern Missouri where logging is huge industry and the logging access roads run for miles. Once on a trek deep into the hills we came to a cross roads and saw a prosthetic leg hanging in a tree!

We were at least three miles from the nearest road and I have no idea how it got there.

I have read and enjoyed this thread and the creepy outdoor story one for a while, and finally submitted my own creepy story, so I figured I'd post one here too. It's not nearly as good as most of the stories here, but I thought I'd share something.
A few years back I worked at walmart and had to take a 4 hour lunch to take off overtime.....it was a very common thing when i worked there. I was understandably bored and decided to go for a walk. My town's Wal-Mart had a few acres of woods behind it, so I set out walking hoping to find something cool.
I walked up a a big hill and could see a little creek in the valley between it and another hill, so I went down and took a look at it. While down there I turned to look back up at the hill I'd just came down and saw that there was a decent-sized rock bluff about 3/4ths of the way down. I hiked back up to it and realized it was way deeper and wider than i had assumed, once you stepped inside it widened considerably....maybe that makes it more of a cave, I dunno. I started looking around, using my phone as a flashlight, and saw 5-6 old mattresses, tarp hanging up in a couple places, and the remnants of a fire pit. It didn't seem to have had any recent occupants so I looked all around it. There were tons of empty packages of just about anything you can think of, and a dead racoon laying on one of the mattresses.
Anyway, I found a hobo camp! It was a little weird, and as an added bonus, I found a like-new Swiss army super tinker knife inside it's belt carry case. So that was cool.

Found an old school perfect condition barber chair, 30 miles from anywhere, 3 miles from the nearest trail, sitting on top of a boulder the size of a small house. WTF?

I've got a new one. I live in a rural area and have woods all around, my wife and i like to just pick a direction and wander around...this thread has been an inspiration to really look around. Anyway, last week we were walking in the woods and came to a clearing where we saw a cage hanging from a tree limb, tied off with paracord. I could see something inside the cage and went over for a closer look....and immediately wished I hadnt. It was full of dead squirrels....most decapitated, some with the head still there but barely hanging on, all in various states of decomposition. Some were totally dried out and some looked pretty recent. We got out of there quick, maybe the weirdest thing I've ever found in the outdoors.

I was hiking with my dog bout 10 years ago on the outskirts of Yuma AZ. My dog ran over to a creosote bush and just stared at it. Laying on the ground was a camo softcase with a BEAUTIFUL H and K rifle worth well over $2K. Managed to find the original owner after a bit of legwork and the help of Yuma Sheriff Dept. and an ex-marine who owned a local gun shop (Foothills Firearms, now closed.) Returning that rifle is still a point of pride for me.

Speaks very highly of your character. I'm sure the owner appreciated it.

I've returned a few high dollar or valuable items to their owners as well, and it is also a point of pride for me.

I was bushwhacking up this small creek in the Smoky Mountains one time and as I stopped to take a break I noticed a few rocks stacked together and a semi burnt wood pile. A few feet over was a flat piece of wood that had obviously been used for cooking and food preparation. Kind of creepy but it would have been a good spot to camp out even though it's not allowed.

Not found in the woods, but in my back yard. We removed two old wooden buildings and had to dig up the ground afterwards. About a foot down we found two headstones. One all the writing was worn off and the other was dated 1905-1922. Won't post the name since we never found out any info on the person. We did find out though that it was common practice around me during those times to bury loved ones on their property. We didn't dig to much deeper after that. There is also a mysterious shoe lace growing out of a tree in my uncles yard. The lace is from a set of ice skates I placed in the crotch of the tree more than 20 yrs ago that the tree grew around and completely covered the skates. Kind of sad near me if you walk in the woods far from most trails you will more than likely come across a dump site. Just to toss in a funny story my brothers sister in law was hunting with them when she shot a huge buck so she gets on the radio and let's them know she got one. So they all head off to find the deer when they come across it. It was the biggest, whitest refrigerator with a rifle hole in it they have ever seen in there life. It is still there.
