My neighbor to the south, cut and split a dead oak that was in our fence line and found a musket ball in it a few years back.

Reminds me of the Gettysburg stories and photos of all the balls and minies that collided in mid air...

I remember a picture of a fence post or tree trunk that was cut in half to a point like a beaver had chewed it.

Also accounts of battle field rifle pick-ups that had multiple charges in them (I think one had 13). Apparently with all of the noise, confusion, and adrenaline, people would think that they had fired when they really hadn't and just kept on ramming charges down the barrel. (You would think that after a number, especially 13, the fact that the ramrod was only going in part way would set off some alarms.)

It was JeffObama/GunTRuck50's bullet. It didn't "overpenetrate"....

I believe I would have crapped all over myself if I found that while cutting that log.



Me too, not sure, but I think the log cutter lost the dog.

Usually if I do hit a rotten section, I stop and either get rid of that log or cut further up. I was on humira for my crohns at the the time and it was like the perfect storm. According to my doc, a normal system with a normal immune system it would have been a non issue.

I call it my precursor to 2020.

If you don’t mind if I ask, was it histoplasmosis?


Yup. My sodium level was so low, I was 1 point away from going to the ICU.


If Obama is the answer, must have been a pretty stupid question.

A fungal disease that gets in your lungs and little calcified lesions and scarring. Mainly but not always associated with digging in ground around old wild bird roosts, pigeons in walls, etc Disturbing spores and inhaling it

Some try to lump farm chickens and coops in that but some of that has been debunked pertaining to domesticated fowl.

Some think that was a hunting dog, coon dog that got stuck in there.

Back about 1980, I was on an elk hunt in eastern Oregon with some much older companions.
One, Jerry, had a pre64 Winchester in .375 H&H. He was running 270gr Hornady rnsp bullets and I just had to shoot it. We tacked something on a lodgepole pine and I shot it several times. Later in the week I just happen to come down that same draw after a hunt and came across the targeted tree from the back side.... I was amazed to find large blown out splintered exit holes in that tree!! Maybe a 10" diameter trunk.

Jerry, did tell me of an elk he killed after his .375 bullet went through a pine burl and struck the elk knocking it down. It took another shot to settle him down, but he got his game.
Those guys were toting a .375, .338's and Ackley "06's..... I was in Looney heaven!

That’s a great one. Perfectly mummified. And in the virtually extinct American chestnut I think? Makes me sad for the dog though. Clearly a good one. Got in after that vermin and wasn’t coming out without it. Must have been a terrier of some type. Poor thing. Terrible way to go out - slow. Trapped.
