    Located some pot plants in the woods. I found a softball this yr in the middle of a swamp, nearest house has no kids. Found a balloon near a ground blind, but can't remember where it was released from. Friend found a car on their club in eastern NC that had been stolen in Maryland.

    While deer hunting found a balloon that had been released as a class room project by a Second Grade girl. Each student in the class had released a balloon to see how far it would travel. Found the balloon in Davie County and it had come from North Wilkesboro. Sent the girl a note and got a nice Christmas Card from the family telling us that the girl had won second place. Only one other balloon had traveled farther than hers.

    I wonder if a swallow could have dropped the coconut? Not a European swallow by per chance an African swallow?

    Lots of dump sites around where I hunt. I find old bottles regularly.

    African swallows are non-migratory.

    So you're saying a 5 oz bird carried a 1 lb coconut?

    I have found old cut up stills and about 40 years ago found an "active" still that I very discretely made my way away from. I have found a softball that was wedged into the fork of a tree and the tree had started growing around it. Found a U.S.M.C. machete in a pine that fully grown around the blade, I went back and cut the tree down and still have the machete. I have found several knives also (I don't understand how someone can just leave a good knife). Several hats, jackets, shirts, pants and a pair of LaCross boots that had been there for years. But the most unusal thing was in the area I hunted for years was that every year I would find at least 1 golf ball out in the middle of mature woods that were usually too thick to even swing a club......one of my buddies joked that someone must have dropped them from an airplane just to mystify anyone that might find them.
    I am patient with stupidity, but not with those who are proud of it!

    I found one after a hurricane in Buxton. Always assumed in came in with the storm.
    Jeremiah 16:16

    "Behold, I am going to send for many fishermen," declares the LORD, "and they will fish for them; and afterwards I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks.
