Mail Call: Letters to the Editor — January/February 2017

Readers write to the editors with stories of backyard threshing, corn husking competitions, hunting traditions, and more.

On a windy day, the threshing bucket is slowly emptied into a bowl so that the wind can carry the chaff away, but the berries will end up in the bowl so that they can be cleaned fairly easily.
