A Missouri hunter got the shock of his life when he stumbled on a cache of explosives in the Mark Twain National Forest. 

An Army combat engineer stationed at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri was hunting in the Mark Twain National Forest when he discovered a massive cache of explosives stored in a box not far from the highway.

He immediately recognized them for what they were and called the police, who responded along with an Army Explosive Ordinance Disposal team from Fort Leonard Wood.

Fortunately, nobody was injured and all of the explosives were safely detonated on site.

No details have been released regarding the type or amount of explosives that this hunter discovered. However, police are saying that they were commercial grade, instead of military grade, and that the type of explosives in this cache were not legal to own.

Police are continuing their investigation to determine where these explosives came from and what they were doing in the woods. The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department is asking anyone who has information about these explosives to call their office at (573) 774-6196.
