I found a lock and hammer, part of a rusted barrel and several cannon balls, while rabbit hunting on the old battle site of Quantril's massacre at Baxter Springs, Kansas. I owned the property adjacent to the site on the west bank of Spring River, in Southeast Ks.

Found some arrowheads, a stone hatchet, old cemeteries and abandoned cabins and vehicles while out hunting. All the best...

i was 11 deer hunting. i came across a old old rock pile full of indian stuff. hammers, spear heads, broken pottery. apparently the farmer in the past cleaned up a village spot on his property and piled all the stuff in one rock pile. climbing over the river bluff i found 3 cheifs graves hidden in a small grove of native pines. the graves are covered with rock and predate 1825 i know because my family settled there in 1826 and gramps says the graves were always there.

gigging one night i found a 14 ft johnboad with trolling motor in 14 feet of water sunk to the bottom.

IN Pennsylvinia, I found a whole suit case of confederate money. in a junk pile in the woods. I was young enough and the money rotted enough that we played with it for several days. My Dad got wind of it and promptly took charge of the find. He made some money on it and we had our play money. In South Dakota, I've found fossils, petrifide wood and a nice pair of binoculars.

One thing we have to be watchful of is "new" to the suroundings building and trailers. The meth heads have moved in. Most on the reservations but you still need to be mindful of where you are and what you are doing.

I look for more than tracks and droppings when hunting and scouting at the hunting club. I find allot of indian points and pottery shards. Our hunting club is on the Ogeechee River which is one of the many watersheds that the Creek Indians inhabited in Georgia. I have found some points that predate the creeks and there is not a great deal of knowledge about these indians. There were mound builders and others before.

Gee, you guys have some interesting things in the bush over there in the US. Civil War artifacts and Indian bits and pieces....awesome.

We have very little like that in the bush here in Australia. But having said that there are still some interesting things to see. Our pioneers moved in here just over 200 years ago but you can still find bits and pieces around old abandoned homesteads. Most common is the remains of the buildings, often only a tin chimney or a pile of rocks etc. Sometimes you will come across aboriginal "middens"....piles of old shellfish, stone axeheads and grooved stones where they ground seed etc up. Less frequently you can encounter cave paintings, some many many hundreds of years old.

Apart from the above not much lasts out here in the bush. If its wood the termites chomp it and if its metal it rusts away to nothing in next to no time. I have an old 32.20 Winchester lever gun in parts that a mate found in the bush in the tropics and gave me. Its badly rusted but a good odditity. Best thing I ever found was a good quality Spanish steel sheath knife. Found it 30 years ago and its still the best knife I own.

Cheers, Vince

Interesting post, this. Let's see,
In NW Florida I found an undamaged large animal arrowhead (almost speer head size) laying on top of the ground, about 300 years old, some pottery, etc. In NH I found cabin foundations, trash piles with hand blown glass bottles & a family's grave markers under the leaves dating back to the 1700s with inscriptions that read; "Killed by Indians" on all the headstones. Found a rusted up 12 ga sawed off shotgun that I destroyed. Found an old Case green bone handled knife stuck in a tree. Still have the knife. Found a commercial K-Bar hunting knife and sheath, laying on the ground. Found a sunken wood boat on the shore of a salt water inlet, it had something yellow in the mud on the bottom, was a Puma skinner.

The talk about watching out where you walk, it is true. About 3 years ago, my buddy and I were going through the woods to our stands one morning when I heard him start hollering for me to watch out and be carful. He was about 300 yards away, across a wet bottom. He had just found a 12 ga, 870 tied to a tree, with a trip wire across a deer trail. The 870 was loaded with 00, safety off. Luckly he saw the gun before he got to the wire. We figure some mental midget decided that was a good way to hunt deer.......
