I've seen them brought in to make backcountry toilets. Basically just nail then between two logs or stumps, have a seat, and take care of business.

My 17 year old son and I were headed into the Deer woods the other day and stumbled upon what we both thought was a small Muzzleloading pouch. It wasn't. My son opened it and thought he had found a nice powder measurer but it turned out to be a Mary Jane pipe......a nice one if I may say so.
The pouch also contained a small amount of weed too. Someone had probably dropped it cause it was too far from the road to have been chunked that far.

While hunting on North Manitou Island in Lake Michigan several years ago I found an entire campsite and all gear completly abandoned. It had been there long enough that there was a 2 inch thick sugar maple growing in the sideof a rolled up sleeping bag. The same trip one of my hunting partners and I found nearly an entire set of womens clothing complete with lacy bra and panties trailed through the woods over about 150 yards

I hunt in the Adirondacks and back in the middle of nowhere there is an old stone foundation. And a few hundred yards away there is some old farm equipment that the trees have completely grown around. Everytime I see it I think what it once was like.

One of the wierdest things I've ever found was one of those little tyke playhouse things set up in the absolute thickest and deepest part of the woods back here. It was very odd. Who knows, maybe a baby sasquatch lives in it.

Not on a trail but fishing on a river last summer, my son and son-inlaw, hot and dry, used up their water, just commented on "going to have to head in" because of thirst. An unopened can of beer floats by, then a second. They claimed the fishing gods were smiling upon them. More likely beer abandoned by boaters about to be checked by boat cops(Ontario, Canada).
Not weird or that unusual but quite a coincidence.

Gently dropped there by a passing tornado?

I once found a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses hanging from a fern at about eye level on me in Volcanoes National Park. Since I'm about 6'1" I figure a shorter person was wearing them on their head, and it got caught. I also found a nice princton tech headlamp that I got a few years of use out of while hiking up to some nice waterfalls.

I was bushwacking at the north end of Kassan Bay on Prince of Wales Island SE Alaska. and about a mile off the beach, in heavy timber I came upon a crashed and burned Hiller 12E helocopter. It had obviously fluttered down through the canopy and smashed into the ground. There were marks on the trees and broken limbs, and evidence of a fire. I eventually found out that it had had engine failure and auto rotated into the trees. The pilot and two geologists had minor injuries but were able to walk out to the bay I had walked in from. They had a camp there and a radio and called in a float plane that took them to Ketchican for treatment. The owners of the helo had salvaged the radios and other usable parts.
It was really weird looking for bodies then trying to get word out to athorities. I was 50 miles out of Ketchican, and had to travel by boat to Kassan village about 10 miles, where they had a radio. I described what I had found and the location and a couple hours later the state troupers radioed back a thank you and details of the crash.
