I found a Judical land mark in the woods while looking for a cache recently. I've never seen or heard of one before and was wondering if anyone has ever seen or heard of one.

It looks similar to a benchmark, it was made of steel so it was rusty with only the words judicial landmark visable.

I'm just curious. Any thoughts anyone?

Here is what a judicial landmark is.

A tool available in some states for marking court-established boundary line corners after a lawsuit between contiguous property owners. The applicable statute will usually specify a certain size monument, such as a concrete block at least 12 inches per side; a depth at which it should be buried; and a requirement for an engraved notation that indicates that it is a judicial landmark,the date set,and the name of the surveyor setting the landmark.

To me this means, watch out for contentious neighbors with shotguns while caching in this area.
