    So... don't go sniffing sticks in the woods cause it might belong to a nymph?

    When my boys were young and we would walk the creek trapping they would look for beaver cuttings where the beavers would strip the bark off sticks while eating on the shore. They would collect an armload of "beaver sticks" along the walk. Kinda gives the term a whole new meaning to me now. Maybe i should have been examining their beaver sticks more closely.

    During my beaver trapping days I came across this homemade boat about a 1/2 mile in from the nearest road on State land. Maybe some of you may recognize what cars the hoods came from and notice the builders even added a transom!

    I see these partial tires in trees on the state land near me all the time, thought they might be some kind of nest project or something hmmm

    Seriously? I have found at least 20 of those over the years and always thought WTH. One I found last year, I could make out white lettering on it from the ground that said "Police". Always wondered, seems like an incredible waste of time and resources if the state did it.

    They were trying to increase the archery hunting, go figure, all you needed was the advent of the compound.

    Those were wood duck nests made from tires.

    It was probably a mushroom hunting stick, with a mushroom tip.

    Found a "big bootie hoes" porno mag while asparagus picking, which is odd cause I thought I put it back under my bed after I was done with it... lol jk wasn't mine but it did have a DVD in it which I watched

    Last year coming back from hunting we found a big glass bong in the middle of the road. Tossed it into the ditch, still would like to know the story there.

    Not the woods but found a sweet old zippo in my 1979 boat, prob my best find.

    It's so weird, I find a lot of single socks out in the woods.

    Being thrifty, I collect 'em, wash 'em, and pair 'em up, I haven't had to buy socks in years.

    :D

    Don’t know how unusual it is, but is the one place I find my SANITY!
