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.
