I was in the Willamette National Forest this weekend and came across this tag on a tree, and I'm really curious what it means. googleing any of the strings on the tag return useless results and calling what looks like a phone number didn't get me anywhere either. Has anyone seen anything like this before?

I think it's a sign for a mining claim. I found this page which lists some other Oregon mining claims for sale, with similar 6-digit ID numbers and some with tree-mounted signs. NO NAME 10 is presumably that particular claim's name, which cold sucks compared to HOT DIGGITY DOG
