Lost a turkey striker and never found it. Lost an SD card in September one year in a CRP field and found it the next December by accident. Had 900 pics on it lol.

One time in Va in a state park draw hunt. I found a guys 742 Remington 30.06 under the leaves in a pull off parking spot. Loaded it up and took it to the park HQ The guy has told them he lost it and couldn’t find it. They called him up and he came for it the next day.

I’ve found old stands, blinds and chairs before.

I dropped an old flip phone from my stand one time. When I climbed down I looked for an hour raking leaves, etc. I never found it. I hunted there again after that and looked again. I still never found it. The ground just ate it up???

All I am going to say is NEVER and I mean NEVER lay your brand new fancy camo Mathew's compound bow down on the ground where you "think" you shot a deer as a marker to come back to later.

Lost a butt pad, a walkie talkie, a pair of loppers (literally sat them down, came back to them 20 mins later, gone), and about a dozen top halves of long socks over the years.

Only crazy thing I ever found was a camp site on our property complete with tent, sleeping bags, cookware, and 12ga buckshot Ammo.

Lost a predator call right after deer season one year and found it during turkey season. Have found flashlights, knives, and too many gloves to remember. Old baker treestand, old summit climber. Various tools.

If a person ever did do that (hypothetically speaking ) would they ever find? :)

I’ve lost gloves,sd cards, release for my bow, buck folding knife.
I found the knife with the help of a metal detector.
I’ve found three tree stands . Two were still attached to trees about 25 yards apart.
They were overlooking a salt lick, both stands had compound bow hanging from a tree limb next to the stands.
The other stand I found was covered up in the leaves and had been there a long time , straps were rotten.
