Default creepy, wierd, or downright scary things found while hunting

What are the creepiest/weirdest things you have found while hunting/fishing? mine was a dog leg sticking out on a hole. this was a ground squirrel burrow too! actually, that wasnt the MOST unusual thing I have seen; the most unusual thing I have seen was a dried up concrete well thing in el centro, california, that was FULL of snakes(many not native) including, but not limited to: corn snakes, king snakes, black rat snakes, rattlers, and a MASSIVE six foot ball python.

The body of an old man frozen in a spring seep in Dec. 1975, while grouse hunting.

Jack, I wsould say it was sad rather than creepy. An old man on a coat and tie lying face up in a spring frozen solid with a mask of ice on his face. Of course it ended the hunt. Went out and called the state police who showed up with the coroner. We were told the guy wondered away from home and they were looking for him for weeks. It wasn't the frst time he did that, unfortunately, it was the last. He must have paniced and ran through the brush, there were sctatches on his face and hands, then layed down exhausted and froze to death.

I found a couple old homesteads and barns from the turn of the century. In some public land that I used to hunt. The houses were fallen and the barns were nearly so, as well.
