Old time hunters and a mystery device

Came across this old cabin while hunting along the edge of a wilderness area this evening

On the way out I took a closer look and found this board on the corner of the cabin next to the old hitchin rail with hunters names,days hunted and game taken and dates back as far as 1917,I almost left my own but decided this was a piece of history that I didnt want to alter,maybe if I kill something up there worth writing about i will some day.

Up on a high ridge far from and road I found this "device" nailed to a tree,my best guess is that it was part of a deadfall trigger but Im only guessing,any ideas?
