I get the same. Some time ago, I was doing research on a comment for an article (related to hunting). Now, since I'm in the city, there isn't much need for bear traps, repellant, rifles or bows. But I get some junk mail advertising just that.
Recently bought a VAX vacuum cleaner, and talked to a recruitment agent about a satellite modem driver I once modified. Started getting job adverts for VAX/VMS programmers with knowledge of satellite communcations technology.
Weirdest thing was getting adverts for cancer treatment, counseling services. Turns out my parents cat was terminal and being treated.
Strange how information can "leak", but given the way information is being linked behind the scenes, that explains a lot.
