I lost a Kimber Mountain accent 270,  it had camo tape on the scope, and has a sticker on the stock. There was a Treeline sticker on it and also a Montana Wild sticker on it. One fell off but I don't remember which one. Literally how many guns can be lost there!!

^^ THIS!!!! ^^^

I'll kick in the first $20.   Bravo to archer0135!

It is easier to leave a rifle than I used to believe.  I left a spear gun by a beach road one time, left a rifle at a kill site when exhausted and packing out the last load of meat in the dark (went back and found it), and heard my bow slide off of the roof of my vehicle a quarter mile after I started driving home one time.  Recovered all but the spear gun.   

Wonderful story on this thread!

This is cool.  it is easy to get distracted.  Once me and my son were glassing deer.  were sitting in front of the truck doing so.  got hungry and went to the back of the truck for lunch.  then decided to head out to next spot.  Hopped into the truck and headed out.  went like 10 feet and the front of the truck went over a 'bump' and i heard a crunch.  it was the spotting scope and tripod.  totally done. 

another time i lost a good set of binoculars.  No idea where they went.  Just gone.

It is the price of doing stuff.

It can happen to anyone.

About 14-15 years ago was hunting in the same area down elbow road and we were camped there my buddy's and I, we were 16-17 -18 years old and couple older guys were hunting there for the day walk or so in a car I think
It was like lunch time we were back at camp eating and the guys came down the hill passenger leaned riffle on the car they got in and left we saw it happen we were shocked and started to point towards them and walk there way they just waved and kept going we got the gun and didn't know what to do except take it to town sheriff but we waited the rest of the day there and few hours later towards dark the car was back looking for the gun I jumped up got the gun out of my truck started walking his way he saw me walking towards him and headed my way reaching in back pocket pulled out wallet gave me  $100 and said thank you more then I could count in 5 minutes I think that was a 270 pump action and will never forget something like that and would do the same if I was in his shoes honesty pays off great ending to a sad moment

Great job archer, now if Huntinman can get just as lucky.
Haven't lost a gun, but I did take my son hunting once and left the rifle at home - he still likes to remind me of that from time to time.

Good on you Archer for doing the right thing... But, for the life of me, I cannot understand why anybody would leave their boomstick leaning/leaving against a tree during the hunt but heck, I've experienced some bonehead moments myself through out my few years of hunting... Again, good on you mister!

What a good deal!

Best lost rifle story I ever heard was a friend of mine up in Alaska lost his rifle in a big beaver pond while moose hunting. I don't remember the details of how he lost it, might have fallen out of the airboat. But the next year he was hunting in the same area and found his rifle in the middle of a beaver dam. The beaver had picked it u from the bottom of the pond and used it in the construction of the dam. As an added bonus, he also was featured in many hunting mags in an ad for the scope company who made his scope. (don't remember which company either) Evidently the scope still worked perfectly well and he wrote to the company to thank them for making such a quality/waterproof scope. They took his story and made an ad about it.

Just did a little searching and found out it was a Leupold scope and the story was better than I remembered. The rifle was lost 3 1/2 years and a friend of my friend found it. It's the second story at this link.

You get distracted

I left a nice little 20 ga bird gun between the ribs on my Brahma canopy at Scatter Creek North and got on the freeway @ Hwy 12

I was heading down I-5 and remembered that I left the gun on top of the truck, pulled into the rest stop and walked back to the rear of the truck and grabbed it and put it in the case in the truck bed and got back in and drove away.  There were a bunch of people staring at me putting the gun away and I wasn't really in the mood to explain how it came to be that I was driving down the freeway with a gun sitting loose on top of my truck.

This is the story told by his daughter on facebook:


There are still good, honest people out there.

My dad left and went hunting in Winthrop last week, he brought his rifle with him that he always brings. The rifle my Grandpa bought in 1960 that my Dad shot his first deer with when he was just a boy in 1968. My Grandpa gave him the rifle in 1986 and my Dad has used it ever since when he goes hunting every year... well this year he cut his trip short. He was up in the mountains talking to some other hunters and ended up leaving his rifle behind, went back to see if it was still there and it wasn't. Due to the sentimental value this rifle holds my dad decided to come home because he was so upset, he doesn't have many things left behind from his Dad and this was one of the things that meant a lot to him. My mom posted on Facebook about it and the guy that found the gun posted on a lost and found sight for Washington hunters, someone saw both posts and sent my momís post to the guy who found my dads gun! His name is Josh Allen from Tumwater and we are so thankful he found it and made sure to get it back to the rightful owner. It's more then just a rifle to my Dad, it's something that couldn't be replaced, the memories it holds were heartbreaking to think about loosing to the point my Dad didn't want to do what he loves anymore, he didn't want to hunt again. THANK YOU JOSH, you are a Hero in our families eyes.

My best friends dad left his shotgun against his truck 35 years ago at stillwater release site. Got home and realized what had happened. Raced back to find the gun gone.

Fast forward 20 years later. He's working on a house very near the release site and starts to BS with the owner. Start talking and bout hunting and then how he lost a gun way back when.

Homeowner says wait here for a sec. Comes back out and says Im Pretty sure this is your gun.  His dad had found the gun and gave it to him for a Christmas present.

He still owns the gun and Ive been trying to buy it for 15 years

What an awesome story.  :tup:

30ish years ago I took a guy I worked with deer hunting, dropped him off on a ridge up Preston creek(Entiat valley)
We cut a really fresh large track crossing the road which he wanted to trail. The arrangement was we would pick him up on the valley road in 4 hours. I thoroughly explained to him that when dropping off into the valley, he could not go south (lots of rocks/cliffs) so veer to the north while descending.

He was 2 hours late to the rendezvous point, and when we finally found him his head was hanging low and he entered the truck without a rifle in hand. We all thought he was playing a joke on us, so we drove off.
A mile or two down the road I stopped and said that's enough, we're all tired and ready to get home, lets go get your gun. He was adamant that his gun was gone and to keep driving home, so we did.  :yike:

On the drive home we finally got the story out of him. Turns out he did indeed go the wrong direction and got into some really nasty rocks. Evidently he got to a point where he slid/jumped/dropped off a rock face and could not get back up it. At that point he was committed to going down and it just got worse from there. He came to a spot where he needed to scoot across a skinny ledge, and said he was scared for his life, and that he felt the rifle was impeding him,  so he just set it against the rocks and continued to work his way down the rocks/cliffs.

We repeatedly tried to get him to go back up there with us to retrieve his rifle (with ropes and climbing gear) but he was having none of it, said it was the scariest situation he had ever been in, and was never going back.

I still wonder about that rifle, was it ever found, or is it still up there?  :dunno:

Great job archer, now if Huntinman can get just as lucky.
Haven't lost a gun, but I did take my son hunting once and left the rifle at home - he still likes to remind me of that from time to time.

Boy, HuntWA is crushing it this Christmas season. Well done on getting his gun back to him, Archer.  :tup:
