Can't think of anything valuable, but suprisingly I found an old cell phone in a creek near my house a couple years ago. It was bigger than my home phone.

Mine was more surprising than valuable. While swimming in fast current in a big bend of the Missouri river, I discovered a body floating down the river. I swam over to it and discovered it was my cousin's 4 year old daughter. Unbeknownst to me, she had been swept out by the current and lost about 1/2 mile upstream. I floated on my back and laid her on my chest, giving her artificial respiration with one hand. I pumped about a half gallon of water out of her and all at once, she started to breath again. By the time I swam her to shore, she was fine. I always considered that a real lucky find and a real close call with imminent trajedy.

I found a very nice fleece lined hunter orange vest laying in the road several years ago when I was headed in for a day of elk hunting. I probably could have returned it to its owner. The pockets were filled with perscription drugs of various kinds - darvon, valium, barbs, etc. and a bag with pipe and grass. I'm sure one of the names on the bottles was the owner. But I figured screw that idiot. Kinda scary to think someone was out there all hopped up with a gun in his hand! Tossed the drugs and I still use that vest today. When I have to wear orange.

I found a compound bow too, it was mine. I laid it down by a tree when I started to gut the deer I had just shot with it. I dragged the deer out and in the darkness, couldn't find it. Walked right to it the next morning-LOL. (Yep, I'm a hell of a woodsman, in the light of day. That's the reason I don't coon hunt)

I found a buck 119 in PA then lost it a few years later in Montana when I forgot to snap the sheath I like to think someone else has it now. Most surprising was an arrowhead in an area I did not expect.

In the days before regular trash pick up was available in rural areas it was pretty normal for the locals to throw their cans and bottles in the woods. If I find an old trash pile I usually look through it for old bottles or other goodies.

from Ontario Honker ... wrote 2 years 34 weeks ago

When elk hunting in the Great Bear Wilderness not far from Red Plume Mountain, I spotted something gleaming on the other side of the valley. Hiked over there and discovered it was the cockpit canopy from an old fighter jet. It was intact which is pretty amazing. I got the numbers from it and turned them in. Found out years later that it was from a plane that ditched in Flathead Lake. I believe they lost the pilot.

By the way, Flathead Lake is a heck of a long ways from Red Plume. They didn't give out much information. National security, etc.
