    picture is from Austin, these buts were everywhere. Not being from the area, I am not familiar with them.

    It’s probably something really simple, but does anyone know what these are?

    Looks like a tetherball that grew hair?

    How big are those things? Hard to get scale from the photo...

    My first guess was 6PCs given the monstrous size and perfection they display. But upon closer inspection, they looked more like wood than steel and did not have the distinct musky smell of FSDO sweat associated with his.



    So I am clueless.......
