    Mennonite will correct me if I’m wrong but it looks like what you have there belonged to a wrong handed fella...aka a southpaw or lefty. Right handers would swing on their right side as you walk backwards down the log and thus the cant of the handle to clear your knuckles would go the other way. Around me, goosewing axes were more popular for hewing.

    I had no idea they changed this. Now I have a good excuse to setup a night time coyote gun.

    It was shotgun only.

    Sounds fun. The closer to fawning season the better. "A night hunter may use a rifle of 6.5 mm or smaller on private land from Dec. 1 – March 31." https://fw.ky.gov/Hunt/Pages/Furbearer-Hunting-and-Trapping.aspx

    Predator control has to help. We have a surplus of raccoons on our ground in KS. Not sure how a turkey, pheasant, or quail has a nest ever. Working on them though. Lot of coyotes too.

    Watch a broad axe in use. Note that he first uses a right handed broad axe, and then switches to a left handed axe.

    I’m glad I never had to build a barn with those tools. In one of my houses (built 1860) the beams are hand hewn and they’re massive. Most of the framing lumber for wall is sawn though so I’m not sure why they wouldn’t have done the beams the same way.
