Very weird story... Missing people in our State Parks..(The Govt does not keep track of How many..(WTF??) and the Author hints at Government Ineptitude at the highest levels..Imagine that)

People go off for water a few hundred yards away.. They never come back.. Search parties are formed..Clothes are found Neatly folded miles away..  sometimes a day pack found miles away in the opposite direction.. People are sometimes never found.. Or if they are found Many have the "Soles of their Feet Worn Off"   Scratchinghead 

This is one of five Books in the "Missing 411" series..

July 31, 2016 Strange Disappearances of Hunters

David Paulides joined George Knapp in the first three hours to discuss his new book in his blockbuster series about people that have disappeared in the national forests and elsewhere. "Missing 411- Hunters" chronicles hunters who have vanished under very unusual but extremely similar conditions from four countries. In contrast to many of the those who've gone missing in national parks such as children, and people hiking alone, deer hunters and bear hunters-- "those people are attuned to being in the woods. They know exactly where they're going to go out and hunt, they know the terrain...the dangers. They carry weapons with them," he noted, so it's all the more startling when they vanish in inexplicable ways.

There are 59 geographical clusters of missing people in North America, with the largest being in Yosemite Park, he reported. The largest number of disappearances of hunters have taken place in the states of Idaho, Montana, Washington, Maine, Oregon, and Colorado, he cited. In one of the strangest case histories, three hunters disappeared in separate locations in far northern Michigan within seven days of each other in 1909. Paulides detailed the 1966 case of an accountant from Reno, who went hunting in McCarthy, Alaska and then was never found despite numerous air and ground searches. The Nevada State Journal had a headline saying "Tony walked into what has proven to be a mystery void."

Paulides also has documented cases of bow hunters' mysterious disappearances, in which they are either not found or found under very bizarre conditions. An experienced hunter, Aaron Hedges, was hunting with friends in the 'Crazy Mountains' in Montana in 2014, and get separated from the group, but was in contact with them via radio, before he went missing. A week after his disappearance, they found his boots and camelback in the snow, but ground searchers and dogs yielded no further evidence in the area. Nine months later, his backpack and vest were found, 15 miles away from the other location, yet it would seem impossible that he could have traveled that distance in the snow without shoes, Paulides noted.

My family (the cool ones not the other sort) has extensive amounts of land in and around Palmyra Maine. My uncle is the biggest of the land holders in that area and has his house on about 1500 acres spreading west and north in patches and blocks interspersed with others in the area, mostly family. All told the family owns about 3500 acres out of a 4000 acre oval with 2 other plots owned by friends of the family.

Plenty of prime hunting along with a few cabins for use and one of the few things I miss about living in NE. Trips up to Maine to go hunting with my uncle and cousins.

I'm very accustomed to being in the woods with a group or alone and the only time I've ever felt the creeps was when my cousin and I were following moose tracks along a game trail and the woods which had been noisy with birds and bugs just went dead silent. Small game may go quiet for a predator like fox, wolf, bobcat, cougar or bear but the bugs won't and the birds usually make even more noise as a startle reflex. This was absolute silence and my cousin and I went back to back and just stayed put and quiet for about half an hour or so until things returned to normal.

Freaked us out so much we doubled back to the cabin and told my uncle about it. He just nodded like he knew exactly what we were talking about but didn't want to discuss it. Never did get out of him what he thought of things.

I use to get the creepy feeling in the woods in northern Michigan.

That's fairly standard for a defense mechanism. Get stared at and you will notice even if you can't see what or who is staring at you. It's particularly noticeable when it's a predator of some sort doing the staring.

This wasn't that. Even with your standard woodland predators or other hunters in the woods it doesn't get that silent and I've been trailed by a cougar, bear and wolves before. I figured out what was happening and the creepy sensation of being stalked was there but this was a whole magnitude of exponential worse than that.

We literally could not have run away to save our lives until the bugs started making noises again followed by the birds.

out in the woods around Marion a friend of mine went with me Brook Trout Fishing.. we drove and hiked for about 30 min from our house down a long trail. Once off the Trail we hiked down an embankment/ravine to a stream which was in a valley .. The v alley was full of dead trees that over tome had died in a marsh like area.. Off in the distance we heard a loud breaking sound as if something large was stepping on the fallen dead trees and breaking them.. As the sound got closer and louder..Fight or flight took over and we ran.. Away from the stream and up the Ban as fast as we could go.. Once to the truck lock the doors and get out of there.. Never did go back to see if it would happen again.. What ever it was it was Huge..
