What's the purpose of this "bucket"?


People often trespass on a small farm that we own far from our home. While visiting this spring, we discovered this "bucket" hanging from a tree in the woods. It has a muddy substance coming from the spout. Any ideas what it is or what it might be used for? I thought it might be hunting related, as several deer were killed on the land in the fall, with only part of their carcasses removed.

    Hi Lee! That's a good guess, but the bucket isn't actually attached to the tree. It's just hanging from it by a wire that's attached to the handle. And it's fairly far away from the trunk. I have no idea what the damn thing is. (: It's a puzzlement!

    Hi Sheila! That would be pretty cool actually, but . . . it's not connected to the tree other than that it's hanging from it by a wire.
