I also had a weird find on TVA land. It was in Hawkins County next to Cherokee Lake. I had stopped hunting for the morning and was looking around for a place to move my climber when I came upon a rototiller sitting in the woods with a lawn chair sitting right beside it. Tiller had weeds and small trees growing up thru it and looked like it had been there for a while.

Also, about forty years ago, I was grouse hunting and came upon a pair of post hole diggers leaning against a tree on the side of a mountain. There was no fence anywhere nearby and I have no idea why the post hole diggers were there.

So sorry to hear that. I hate to think that things could get so bad that anyone would feel that the only way out....... as they say " a permanent solution to a temporary problem" ....... So sad. I feel for you finding him and the loss to his family.... God bless DMAG

20 years ago I was bowhunting in colorado.. we were 75 miles from the nearest payphone.. the place we were hunting looked like virgin ground.. I dont think white men had ever stepped foot there.. we were really back in the boonies.. you never saw a sign of any human life.. not a coke bottle, not a cig but, not a old beer can..nothing.. well i was creeping through a big evergreen stand of trees and something shiny catches me eyes..lol.. i walk over and its a true value hardware 25' tape measure.. so as i go to pick it up im thinking.. is this thing wired to a explosive?? naw.. surly not.. i grab it.. hook it on my belt and used it daily for about 2 years.. it must have fallen from a plane or helicopter

The strangest thing ive found in woods was in north al. There is a bench on the mountain in a hollow directly across from a large cave. On the bench there are piles of rocks all waist hi and range from 3 ft across to 8 ft. There were 40 to 50 of these piles on this 20 acer bench. And at the bottom of the hollow is a large limestone rock with smaller limestone rocks piled on top. Upon closer inspection i noticed one of the rocks was square on the end. I removed the top 3 or 4 rocks ( and carefully replaced them) to get a better look at the square ended rock and it was long pie shaped and it pointed directly to the cave. IMO it was obv indian sign left when they rounded all the Indians up for the trail of tears. So sad. i guess they thought they would return one day and wanted to leave a marker to point the way home. And as to the piles of rocks i assume they were old indian graves.

Piles of coconut shells on the Cumberland Springs Area outside of Tullahoma....Always suspected they were remnants from the old Camp Forrest days.

How thoughtful of him. Sorry, I have no respect for those that do that to family and friends.

I enjoy these threads, makes me say what what was going on there? I would like to throw this out, not to hijack by any means, but if any of you guys get depressed, please feel free to contact me or any other friend that may be able to help you. Life is tough at times, but this site is a great place for social interaction and provides a perfect means of help for those that may need it. God Bless to all.
