25 Backpackers And Park Rangers Reveal The Creepiest Thing They Found Lurking In The Woods

3. My friend found a suffering man who attempted suicide and failed

“One of my friends went on a solo fly fishing / camping trip for the weekend. He was in the middle of a creek fly fishing and kept hearing the weird garbled sounds from up the creek, so eventually he decided to check it out when he took a break for lunch. It turned out to be a guy that had tried to commit suicide by shooting himself, but he was still alive. My friend hauled ass back to service to call 911, and had to hike back in to show the cops/medics where the guy was. Never found out what happened to him, but my buddy was so freaked out that he had been that close as the dude was just laying there for hours.” — champagne_farts
