Even with the broken handle, our keen readers figured it out. This was, in fact, an ice harvesting tool.
While we got some suggestions guessing that it was used in logging, about five of you guessed correctly that this tool should have a 14-foot-handle and be used for ice harvesting.
Bill Jameson of Nehawka, Nebraska was the first to guess correctly with Stanley Shavlik and Kris Irlbeck right behind.
Ron Blaser figured what out what it was as well right after submitting.
Be sure to keep the responses coming every issue, even if it’s just a guess.
