LOST & FOUND FORUM??

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hey there Outdoors-peoples!

I am thinking with all the lost outdoors equipment happening each year to ALL of us at one time or another..THIS site should look into a "Lost & Found" headed forum to allow the unlucky ones a venue to advertise their loss.

I know I'd like to have a chance at getting whatever I lost or left or however it became "not in my possession" returned by having it advertised in a huge outdoor source as this site is!! smile.gif

What do you think?

Well, I'll jump in. I lost my net on the Brule a few days back in the area of Harvey's Landing. Anybody bump into it?

Excellent Idea. I lost a fly box on the Root last year but I had not marked it. The idea of a lost and found is great.

CHERNDOG, I found a small box with a number of flies last spring on the Root. If you or any one reading this can discribe I would be able to sleep much better knowing that the rightful owner gets his flies back. E-mail me at [email protected] I will be camping at Forrestville next weekend.

If anyone found a rapala hanging in a tree on the Root. Its mine! ha..ha

Good idea LUND-MAN.
I have found two spinning rods in the last year while trout fishing. One of them was broken so my guess is they left it. The other one was is good shape but it's a old rod made of glass. I don't know if it would be worth trying to find the owner. It may have been sitting there for 30+ years.

Yes!
This IS all it takes to maybe retain our lost/misplaced in the outdoors equipment.

A little honest communication amongst honest folks goes a LONG way towards its recovery. And if there was a "Lost & Found" forum we could go directly there to either look into the posts for regaining lost equipment, or post the found equipment to allow a unlucky outdoors-person their equipment returned to them smile.gif

A brief description of the lost item, with where lost, day lost and a means to get in contact with the rightful owner IS all it takes really smile.gif

What ya thinks FM? grin.gif

The same day I lost my fly box near Forestville I found a similar fly box about 100 yards north of camping area. Describe it and help me find the owner. [email protected]

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
