Woodpeckers are a possibility, but I am leaning toward unicorn.

I see them from time to time and hear them fairly often. Anyone thats not familar with them, think Woody Woodpecker. They're big birds about the same size as Crows. I think they are the ones that chipped up the dead trees looking for insects or worms. Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.
That was my first thought, those suckers are huge and they can chunk wood like a chainsaw! You would most likely hear them, they dont hide it well. Wonder what Woodpecker tastes like...

With the lack of disturbance of the forest floor and the size of the wood chunks, I'd suspect a woodpecker.

Primer I do have friends that will pull a practical joke now and then but I really don't think any of them are stupid enough to try something like that close enough to my house that I could see them. I do keep loaded firearms around the house you know. lol

The Oconee National Forest is just a few miles from here so I think I'm going to take some pictures to the Ranger station and see if any of those guys can enlighten me. I'm still leaning toward woodpecker.

Keep us updated that would have to be one hell of a woodpecker I am stumped. Edit--Per Google we have a tiny population of porcuipines in our South Western mountains near Cherokee.

I took the picture to the Ranger Station a little while ago and showed them to the Ranger and he said he had never seen anything like it. He asked me to email him the picture and he would show them around and see if anyone has a clue what made the marks. I sent him the pictures and got this response just a few minutes ago.

I will investigate this some more. It doesn’t appear to be work done by Pileated Woodpeckers or bear scratching. As soon as fine something out I will let you know.

We shall see.
