Found this while walking through the woods on my way to a stock tank at our lease. Old cast iron teapot from who knows when. Missing the top and a couple pieces are broken off. I'd love to know how it got there and how old it was.

Unfortunately it was sitting upright when I found it.....the majority of the bottom was rusted out due to this so no bottom.

Going to go with the rest of the stuff I've found out in the woods including this piece of a windmill.


I'll try and get a picture of it all later tonight.

With the location of it I'm wondering if it wasn't a campsite. I'm going to have to go walk around that area more next time I'm out there and see if there is anything else.

That is actually the biggest beaver I've ever shot. I'm 6 ft tall.




Oh and here is those asthma smokes.

Idk but that is by far the biggest one we've taken off our place in east Texas. I'm still mad I didn't get a full body mount on that thing.

Could have fell off a chuck wagon. I've seen pictures with a kettle like that hanging from a rope off the side.


They make ammo specifically for hunting for a reason! nidea
