Trail clearing during the summer? Or is it Bigfoot!
It would be a cleaner cut if it was trail maintenance. The wood looks shredded like it was chewed on. This is on an unmaintained trail/rd in a fairly remote section of Mt. Mansfield.
More likely a Wampahoofus than A Samsquatch =)
My feeling is just the opposite. Bite marks would be clean and probably not at a uniform height and wouldn't take as much wood. I'd say it a trimmer like the highway dept uses on an articulated arm. They leave ragged tips like that.
Under 1/2 inch.
I could be wrong that something is eating this. Hunters probably clear this road but it doesn't seem like a cut a man made tool would make.
