The peg is used to keep the door of a hunters' lookout closed. You just twist it. Very ingenious.
For a view of what a hunters' lookout is, please go to the photo from the 10 January, 2008 in my portfolio.

@akarui: Thank you, akarui.
Interesting picture Michael. The texture of the wood is so old and I imagine there are lots of stories to be told around this gate.

@Marion: The hunters sit up in these and sip their beverage, swop stories and wait for small animals to venture by. Thanks so much, Marion.

@Sérgio Martins: many thanks, Sérgio.
I see you either climbed the steps for this shot, Michael, or you used a telephoto lens - no exif data, so I can't tell. At least the ladder wasn't so slippery this time!
