The orange deer skull marks the trail to Pineapple Hill’s pistol range—a ravine near a natural spring where, legend has it, Native Americans stopped while passing through to hunt in the Midlands or trade on the Coast. It also reminds cows where to turn toward home when they’ve escaped their pasture and come over to make another run at my banana trees.

Yes, orange deer antlers look like lobster claws.
