Are these bone tools?

Recommended Posts

Thinking cut one a handle. One side sees softened to ease sharpness of grip. Found next to same stump about two weeks apart.

Yep, bandsaw cut.  The band had one over-set tooth that left deeper marks.

Just doesn't seem right to me but not a hunter. Would someone take the time do this while dressing deer in the field. Not really doubting as no experience in this anythings possible. Other than a hunter why would someone have cut the bone. was informed small one likely a deer toe why I brought up hunting and I know people do hunt nearbye but not on property at least that I know of and where I  found it is visible from busy road.

It's not likely that anyone used a bandsaw for field dressing.  It's much more likely that it was cut up in a butcher shop or in someone's garage, and then a dog or coyote or raccoon (pick a critter, any critter) pulled the bone out of the garbage.  It looks like it was cut for a shank roast.  Maybe a logger brought a chunk along for lunch and tossed the bone?
