Me too. Can't imagine the tales it could tell. I was hoping someone would come out of the house while I was looking so I could get some information. No suck luck though. Maybe I'll knock on the door one day.
My buddy lived a good life and was almost 80 when he passed. He was a hard drinker until he was in his forties and smoked 3 packs a day for 30 years., he lived to hunt so we were in the woods 3 or 4 days a week. If we weren't hunting we were exploring. He guessed that he had killed over 300 turkeys and deer beyond counting. Grew up in the woods eating turtles, rabbits, quail, fish and any game they could kill, in season or not. He and his brother slept on an unscreened porch with smudge pots under their beds. I'll post the story of our last turkey hunt someday.
I knew the old tie cutters lived hard lives but that's amazing. From what I've read the post cutters were paid even less.
