This is stuff that really happened to us when we moved into that house, at least this is how I remember it. I'm sure my child mind included some embellishments! But boy, that image of the deer hoof hanging off the side of the shed with a hand almost grabbing it is just burned into my head forever. Though I think that deer was mostly bones, not just skinned and gross. I never actually saw the rest of it, my parents made us go inside so they could deal with it.
It all seemed really normal when it was happening, like fish hooks in your trees is something that happens to everybody
