Iroquois snow snake with inlaid pewter tip; 80". Used by George Buck; ex Black Bear Trading Post Museum, Esopus, NY.

The object was to throw/hurl the snow stick on the ice. The winner was the snake that traveled the farthest distance. Different shapes, lengths and the amount of lead and pewter defined the snow snake. Records were over 1 mile.
